Dr. Fauci To Attend Leftist Event In D.C.

(FreedomBeacon.com)- Dr. Anthony Fauci was among the Democrat luminaries who spoke at last week’s “Atlantic Festival” in Washington DC where he attempted to spin President Biden’s previous claim that the pandemic is over.

During his first interview last Sunday on CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” Biden proclaimed that the COVID pandemic is over without stopping to consider the implications behind such a remark.

The following day, the White House walked back the president’s comments, explaining that there has been no change to the White House’s pandemic policy.

During his appearance at the “Atlantic Festival,” Fauci did a little walk-back of his own, claiming that Biden merely meant that the US is in a “much better place with regard to the fulminant stage of the pandemic,” adding that it is an issue of “semantics.”

By “fulminant stage,” Fauci means the phase when people were suddenly dying in droves.

And while the country is no longer experiencing these sudden spikes in infection and death, Fauci said the pandemic isn’t over. Instead, he explained, we’re just in a “new phase” thanks to the vaccines.

The Atlantic Festival also featured Critical Race Theory evangelist Ibram X. Kendi, White House chief of staff Ron Klain, and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. The event was sponsored in part by Pfizer, Genentech, the Walton Family Foundation, and Edward Jones.

Like the Atlantic magazine itself, the festival was an orgy of far-left activists, including left-wing billionaire Pierre Omidyar.
