(JustPatriots.com)- Director of NIAID Anthony Fauci said that he would not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Dinner due to COVID fears. Reports show Fauci was invited to attend the gala as a guest of ABC news but then changed his mind.
But he did go to a packed pre-party where he took maskless pictures with Don Lemon.
His pictures were shared on Twitter which caused some social media users to point out his hypocrisy.
Fauci canceled on attending the White House Correspondents’ Dinner due to an “individual evaluation of my personal danger,” said Sean Spicer of Newsmax. “So he went to the overcrowded pre-parties,” he mocked.
Another reaction came from Dr. Marty Makary, a Fox News medical contributor. He appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show and said that Dr. Anthony Fauci, despite being vaccinated four times, refused to attend the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. “That is the person that is behind all the COVID policies in the United States,” he jabbed. The comment came after Dr. Fauci said the US was “out of the epidemic phase” of COVID-19, only to retract his statement the next day.
Fauci’s trustworthiness was questioned by Dr. Markary, a surgeon and public policy expert at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He pointed out that Fauci had undergone a rheumatology residency to study disorders affecting the muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons rather than an infectious disease fellowship.
Makary then said Dr. Fauci is free to express himself, and he believes he has experience and should weigh in, but he is not an infectious diseases specialist.
Since the outbreak, experts have chastised Dr. Fauci for supporting inconsistent and contradictory instructions on mask usage and COVID-related restrictions. According to Dr. Makary, Fauci has been utilizing inaccurate data throughout the epidemic. He further charged that the President’s medical adviser favors political propaganda over thorough scientific study.
