dr Anthony Fauci — director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease — reportedly laughed at the “American smut he fooled” by some of the COVID-19 policies he promoted.
Luckily, there were enough leaders, like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who questioned his policies that the United States didn’t go completely mad about COVID.
The account of Fauci mocking Americans comes from the book Vignettes & Vino, due out Oct. 25, by former Trump White House spokesman Brian Morgenstern.
According to the New York Post, Morgenstern described Fauci in the book as “terrible” and “egomaniacal.”
“[I]In January 2020, [Fauci] said the virus is not a cause for concern for the American people. Then, in the months that followed, he said that people shouldn’t wear masks and that they were ineffective. In June or July he had changed his mind and said that everyone should be very concerned and that they should wear multiple masks – and goggles,” Morgenstern wrote.

After more than 600 days of ineffective lockdowns and mandates, Dr. Fauci 3 things for sure:
He freaks out. He flops. He fails.

“I vividly remember my blood boiling during an angry meeting in the Roosevelt Room of the White House when Fauci laughed at his own bespectacled comment, making it clear how cynical he was and how he could get people to say anything believe,” continued Morgenstern.
“He went on to laugh about how ‘back ass’ it was of people wearing masks walking into a restaurant and then sitting down and talking to people without masks. Of course, he didn’t say such things publicly, just privately laughed at the American jerks he was fooling.”

While Fauci reportedly laughed about wearing goggles and other protective measures behind the scenes, he was pretty serious on camera.
At the end of July 2020 he said to Dr. ABC News Chief Medical Correspondent Jennifer Ashton: “If you have goggles or eye protection, you should use it.”

“It’s not universally recommended, but if you really want to be complete, you should probably use it when you can,” he added.
In a live interview with The Atlantic Wednesday, Fauci defended his policy recommendations on COVID-19, including lockdowns.
“You have to do something pretty draconian, and sometimes when you do draconian things, there are negative consequences,” he said, noting that hospital intensive care units were overcrowded in the first few months of the outbreak.
“It has detrimental consequences for the economy and for school children. You know that, but you have to find a balance,” Fauci added.
Fauci admits he knew schoolchildren would suffer from “draconian” closures, yet he spent two years campaigning on their behalf. despicable.

Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, who has been one of Fauci’s most outspoken critics, urged the infectious disease expert on his failure to more definitively recognize natural immunity during a Senate hearing last week.
Paul played a clip from a 2004 C-Span interview in which Fauci said of the flu, “The strongest vaccine is to infect yourself.”
“Currently, antibody surveys show that 80 percent of children, about 80 percent of children, have had COVID, and yet there is no guidance from you or anyone in government to account for their naturally acquired immunity,” Paul said.
At today’s hearing, I received a video of Dr. Fauci claiming that natural immunity is “the strongest vaccine.”

Fauci responded that vaccination “gives an extra boost” after infection.
Paul countered that almost none of the studies conducted by the federal government consider the “variable of whether or not you’ve been previously infected.”
“If you ignore whether they’ve been infected, you’re basically ignoring a vaccine,” he argued. “People are decrying the hesitancy in the vaccine; it comes from the gibberish you gave us.”
“They don’t pay attention to science. The basic science is that prior infection provides some level of immunity,” Paul said.
The Senator is right to challenge Fauci.
Morgenstern is right about that in his book.
What Americans needed more than anything during COVID was the truth, or an admission from experts like Fauci when things were still unknown.
What we got too often was universal, draconian guidelines on masks, vaccinations and lockdowns that may not have been necessary.
