Americans are sick of Dr. Fauci.
So is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
And Ron DeSantis has a suggestion for Dr. Fauci that left Democrats steaming mad.
As Great American Daily reports:
Dr. Anthony Fauci has announced that he’ll be stepping down as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden in December.
During the outbreak of Covid Dr. Fauci routinely changed and backtracked the advice and Fauci even admitted that he was changing the science to manipulate the public.
“When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent,” Fauci told The New York Times. “Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85.”
Dr. Fauci has been open in how he misled the American public yet has still been hailed as a hero by Democrats even though Republicans have consistently taken him to task for misleading the public.
Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) blasted Dr. Fauci during a Florida Republican Party “Keep Florida Free” event in Seminole County.
“I’m just sick of seeing him,” DeSantis declared. “I know he says he’s gonna retire. Someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across the Potomac!”
Fauci said this week that he will step down from his roles in December “to pursue the next chapter of my career.”
“It has been the honor of a lifetime to have led the NIAID, an extraordinary institution, for so many years and through so many scientific and public health challenges,” he said. “I am very proud of our many accomplishments. I have worked with – and learned from – countless talented and dedicated people in my own laboratory, at NIAID, at NIH and beyond. To them I express my abiding respect and gratitude.”
Fauci stressed that he is “not retiring,” claiming that he would use his knowledge to “advance science and public health.”
“After more than 50 years of government service, I plan to pursue the next phase of my career while I still have so much energy and passion for my field,” he said. “I want to use what I have learned as NIAID Director to continue to advance science and public health and to inspire and mentor the next generation of scientific leaders as they help prepare the world to face future infectious disease threats.
“Over the coming months, I will continue to put my full effort, passion and commitment into my current responsibilities, as well as help prepare the Institute for a leadership transition,” he said. “NIH is served by some of the most talented scientists in the world, and I have no doubt that I am leaving this work in very capable hands.”
