Dr. Fauci made an announcement about his future as Chief Medical Adviser to the President.
Americans cheered the news.
But Anthony Fauci just said the last five words Americans ever wanted to hear him say.
Anthony Fauci emerged from the pandemic as the most controversial figure in American politics.
It all started when Fauci promised the American people that it would only take “15 days to slow the spread” when the federal government first locked down the country.
Of course, it didn’t take long for Anthony Fauci to change his decision on what it would take to bring the pandemic to an end.
Fauci went from claiming it would only take “15 days to slow the spread” to saying the only way to end the pandemic was for 90 percent of Americans to get fully vaccinated.
Fauci flip-flopped back and forth on whether or not he believed face masks were effective against stopping transmission of the virus.
Fauci funded controversial gain-of-function research
One of the biggest controversies surrounding Anthony Fauci came during a Senate hearing when Rand Paul questioned him about funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Lab in China.
While under oath, Fauci told Paul that he never funded gain-of-function research on coronaviruses in China.
However, reports surfaced proving that the NIH funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Lab.
And in a follow-up hearing, Senator Paul presented Fauci with the evidence and offered him a chance to retract his previous false statement.
Fauci refused to retract his statement.
Instead, he called Rand Paul a liar and doubled down on his claim that the NIH never funded gain-of-function research.
Fauci’s future in question
With Democrats in control of Congress, there isn’t much Republicans can do to hold Fauci accountable for his pandemic power grabs and flat-out lies to the American people.
But Republicans are expected to take back the House and Senate in November.
And GOP officials who will head up the committees in charge of leading Congressional investigations are already promising to go after Fauci the moment they retake power.
Fauci understands he is in trouble, especially if Republicans control Congress and the White House in two years.
During a recent interview with CNN’s Jim Acosta, Fauci announced he was planning to retire if Donald Trump wins the 2024 Presidential race.
Fauci flip-flops . . . again
Most Americans cheered the news that Anthony Fauci could be gone in two years.
But Fauci is known for flip-flopping back and forth on the issues.
And on Tuesday, while speaking at The Hill’s “Future of Health Care Summit,” Fauci said he definitely is not retiring, which is the last thing Americans wanted to hear him say.
“I’m not going to retire,” Fauci said. “No, no, I’m not going to retire. I may step down from my current position at some time,” Fauci added.
Fauci has served in his position since 1984, where he is currently the highest paid federal employee in the entire country.
After more than five decades under seven Presidents, Anthony Fauci is determined to hang on to power as long as possible.
But with Republicans expected to take back Congress in November, Fauci’s days ordering Americans around are numbered.
