Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, faced criticism yet again on Sunday after making the bizarre claim that it’s “too soon” to tell if people should be allowed to gather with family and friends over Christmas.
The disgraced doctor – who has been exposed for lying to Congress over his potential role in the creation of COVID-19 – made the remarks during an interview with CBS News’ Margaret Brennan when asked about the upcoming holiday.
“It’s just too soon to tell,” Fauci said when asked if people could gather for Christmas. “We’ve just got to [be] concentrating on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we’re going to do at a particular time. Let’s focus like a laser on continuing to get those cases down.”
Not surprisingly, Fauci used the opportunity to pump the vaccines, saying, “And we can do it by people getting vaccinated, and also in the situation where boosters are appropriate to get people boosted because we know that they can help greatly in diminishing infection and diminishing advanced disease, the kinds of data that are now accumulating in real time.”
Comments flooded the internet attacking the power-hungry doctor, who seems to think that the American people still value his mercurial opinion.
U.S. Senate candidate Sean Parnell said, “Someone tell this guy that we celebrated Christmas together with our families last year & are going to do it again this year. Even Dr. Birx, at the height of the pandemic, blew him off & traveled to celebrate Thanksgiving with her family. Dr. Fauci, please just go away.”
Editor Greg Pollowitz said, “They tried this last year, remember? And then Dr. Birx got caught breaking her own guidance.”
Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw said, “Guess this means I’m throwing a giant Christmas party.”
Reporter Chuck Ross added, “It’s bad enough that Fauci says these ridiculous things, but it’s worse that journos keep framing questions to him as if he has any say over whether we get together for Christmas.”
Stephen Miller, political commentator, stated, “Fauci once again doesn’t differentiate between his own hypochondria and guidance of public health policy based on medical fact. See your families on Christmas. F*** this guy.”
Even CNN contributor Mary Katharine Ham pointed out that Fauci’s so-called medical advice does not leave any room for freedom. “He said at an Atlantic event this week that he rejects the idea that even moderate or mild COVID infection is okay when that’s exactly what we’re told is the purpose of vax (as opposed to preventing transmission entirely). His philosophy is not compatible with a free society.”
After Fauci’s comments about family gatherings on Christmas, Brennan then pivoted to ask about the president’s extraordinarily unconstitutional vaccine mandate for private businesses.
Brennan asked, “The president announced nearly a month ago that businesses need to mandate vaccines for their employees or submit them to weekly testing. We looked; it’s been a month. None of this paperwork has been filed with OSHA to make that happen. Was this a stunt? Are you seeing companies follow through even without the legal mandate filed?”
Fauci responded, “I think some of them are, and I think you’ll be seeing a lot more once we get past these legal issues. I think what the president said about companies greater than 100 individuals is a good thing, and you’re seeing also local groups, universities, and businesses are doing that, mandating vaccines…”
