Oh, you already know the words folks: ‘You’re fired.’ I’ve seen it. There’s a lot of skepticism and anger directed at Dr. Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. For months, I have given him the benefit of the doubt. He’s a medical expert, right? Why shouldn’t I? Well, if you were on the fence about him, his remarks about New York’s COVID policy should have you in facepalm mode. No, I mean, for a guy who has tried to stay out of the politics of this COVID fiasco, these remarks are medical malpractice. Apparently, the Empire State was the place that “did it right” concerning fighting this virus. . .
I know I’m late to the party—many of you were already here—but book me as a total Fauci skeptic now. He’s finished. After these remarks about a policy that was responsible for tens of thousands of deaths, he’s got to be ignored, like the rest of his colleagues and the media, who have reacted as if no other pathogens existed before coronavirus (via CNBC):
White House health advisor Anthony Fauci has praised New York for its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, saying the state responded “correctly” to bring its outbreak under control.
“We know that, when you do it properly, you bring down those cases. We have done it. We have done it in New York,” Fauci said in an interview with “PBS NewsHour” that aired Friday evening.
“New York got hit worse than any place in the world. And they did it correctly by doing the things that you’re talking about,” he continued.

This is absurd. New York City has a higher death rate than almost anywhere else in the world, the nursing home decision was a disaster, and the stories of iatrogenic (medically caused) deaths are legion. Either Dr. Fauci is trolling his boss or it’s time for a mental status exam. https://t.co/M4kr8lS1Yh
