If you’re looking for the infamous Dr Anthony Fauci, you might want to check your local television stations, or some random YouTube channels, because the man has seemingly joined the primetime cable milk carton.
Covid Mania has become deeply unpopular with the American people, and a Democratic polling firm recently convinced the Biden Administration and its allies in Congress to drop the hysteria. With midterms around the corner, and trouble raging in Eastern Europe, it was time to put the kibosh on all of it.
Here’s an internal memo from a Democrat polling firm that’s circulating through their party as they attempt to shift away from two years of arbitrary and capricious mandates, lockdowns, and closures. “Declare victory over COVID and move on.” I refuse to allow them to do so. pic.twitter.com/ut2V2fJdRR— Chris Stigall (@ChrisStigall) February 25, 2022
And with the memo came the simultaneous sidelining of Dr Fauci.
But given his love for television appearances, the NIAID chief has taken desperate measures to try to remain relevant. And by desperate, I mean DESPERATE. You’ll see what I mean in just a moment.
I had to dig pretty deep to find some of his recent media appearances, but I didn’t want to let you all down, so I persevered through the interwebs to find evidence of Fauci’s existence.
He recently appeared on an online streaming show called “Woke AF” (As F**K), in which he expressed his disdain for the unvaccinated. In a clip featured by the show host on Twitter, Fauci rants that the unvaccinated have no respect for greater society. Fauci, who comes off as a broken man, channeled plenty of his regular pseudoscience, claiming that the unvaccinated “give the virus the opportunity to circulate among us.”
I also found a recent Fauci appearance on a D.C. local TV channel. In it, Fauci demands “money now” for his government department, seemingly trying to shake down lawmakers for his pet projects.
Dr. Fauci told me “we need money now,” said things like clinical trials can’t go forward without it. But Republicans are making it clear to the White House they won’t consider additional funding until they get more info on the relief Congress already approved. #NexstarDC pic.twitter.com/ozYugQdzeu— Jessi Turnure (@JessiTurnure) March 3, 2022
In another recent local TV hit, Fauci demands that people continue to adopt the Covid hysteria mindset. “I don’t think people should get the impression that we’re saying that this is all over,” a visibly distraught Fauci told the host. “We’re going to be dealing with SARS-CoV-2 for quite a while.”
Here in DC – the mask mandate was lifted this week. More places are seeing pandemic restrictions relaxing. But will it last? Today I asked Dr. Fauci about what we can expect for life moving forward. pic.twitter.com/dxSTkb4Bxd— Samantha Manning (@SamManningNews) March 2, 2022
In late February, Fauci appeared on a YouTube comedy show to answer questions about Covid-19. No, there was no comedy involved.
The other day, the White House COVID Task Force did a livestream social media presentation, featuring Fauci, on the steps ahead with COVID-19. Demonstrating Americans’ clear lack of interest in Covid Mania, the stream only accumulated about 7,000 views.
And that’s pretty much it. Perhaps Fauci can now get back to doing whatever he does for his day job.
The NIAID’s “Dr Fauci In The News” website, which throughout Covid Mania, has tracked hundreds of its directors major media appearances, has not posted a new appearance since February 17.
It appears that Fauci’s time in the spotlight is over, and judging by his dejected state in recent media appearances, he knows it too.
