Anthony Fauci was at one time (along with Deborah Birx) the “leading” authority on COVID in this country. Last year, the nation hung on pretty much every word the guy had to say, and he had plenty to say. A lot of what he had to say contradicted what he had said earlier, but he still said it, loving his newfound position as being “the guy in front of the camera”.
Of course, Fauci and Trump came to odds more than once, and I think Trump was getting ready to fire him, had he not lost the election to “Brandon” Biden. Since that time, Fauci’s comments have been more about getting himself in front of a camera, ala Adam Schiff, than anything else. His most recent escapade was to let the world know he HOPED we could be together for Christmas this year, but maybe not this year.
And America has made Fauci the brunt of a lot of jokes.
Late night talk show hosts have roasted Fauci over his inane comments, his do what I say, not what I do behavior, and his contradictions that make Brandon Biden look like Socrates next to him. America has been watching, and according to Rasmussen, his numbers are like Biden’s… totally upside down.
Now, a plurality of Americans (45 to 41%) say that Fauci has lost all credibility. I think they’re probably right. You can’t be in front of the camera as much as this ego maniac is, and not lose some credibility with normal Americans. That just doesn’t work. Why do you think that people like Trump had such a low approval rating? He was always in front of a camera. Same for Nancy Pelosi (MUCH worse than Trump’s rating), or Chuckles Schumer (ditto). It’s even worse when you either don’t have anything to say, like Pelosi about 95% of the time, or you sound like a blathering idiot like Schumer (about 99% of the time), or you are like Fauci and you keep changing the story hoping people will buy it.
I’m afraid that Anthony Fauci’s 15 minutes of fame faded long ago. Most people in this country don’t think much of him, he’s become the butt of jokes everywhere, and the longer he stays in his current position, the worse it gets. Want to know the worst part? This guy is 80 years old. He’s just a stone’s throw away from people like Bernie Sanders, Brandon Biden, and Nancy Pelosi. He’s ancient history, and he needs to step down. He should have retired a good solid 15 years ago. That would have insured that we could have had someone more prepared to deal with COVID than what we’ve seen with him.
It’s time for Fauci to go. And if Biden doesn’t do it, maybe his successor will!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
