Anthony Fauci continues to try to have it both ways. The guru of COVID-19 lockdown supporters was asked this week by ABC News’ Jonathan Karl if America paid too high a price in locking down in 2020 and 2021.
“Yeah, I would say that what we should have realized is that there will be deleterious collateral consequences when you do something like that,” Fauci answered.
“That’s the reason why I continually would say on any media appearances I’ve had: We’ve got to do everything we can to keep the schools open.”
He then unleashed his real whopper: “They always come back and say, ‘Fauci was responsible for closing schools.’ I had nothing to do with it.”
This is the same man who consistently urged lockdowns as a member of the White House’s COVID task force. When Trump tried to reopen the economy in the Spring of 2020, Fauci went berserk. In May 2020 he claimed that reopening too soon could be “really serious.” He also told Senator Rand Paul after being grilled by him over the lack of evidence that schools should be closed: “Be careful,” Fauci warned, because children were not “completely immune” from “the deleterious effects” of Covid.
Fauci also rushed straight to the White House TV camera pool when Ron DeSantis announced that schools would reopen in Florida. Fauci denounced the move, warning that children who went back to school “will likely get infected.” Not “could” get infected, but would “likely” get infected.
Americans aren’t stupid. We all know and remember clearly that Fauci was the lead Covid alarmist. He is leaving the government no doubt in hopes of capitalizing financially even further on his celebrity status. If there is any justice in the world this health fraud will be booed off every stage he walks on to.
