After his on-camera appearance, Fauci sat in the stands to watch the game and removed his mask. He was also not properly socially distanced (six feet apart) from two other people in the ballpark.
“And there’s Dr. Anthony Fauci showing us all he knows exactly how well masks work!” wrote former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson, a frequent critic of Fauci’s alarmism about coronavirus. “Thanks for the lesson, doc.”

To pull it down to take some sips of water and put it back up again — I guess if people want to make something about that they can,” he said. “But to me, I think that’s just mischievous, John.” (Read more from “Dr. Fauci Responds to ‘Mischievous’ Criticism After He Was Photographed With Mask off at Nationals Game” HERE)
