Doctor Fauci has served as the Director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984.
However, he mostly remained in the background until the COVID-19 pandemic catapulted him into the national spotlight.
And Doctor Fauci was hoping you would forget that Monday was the anniversary of the most humiliating moment of his career.
Even though the Fake News Media portrays him as a nonpartisan civil servant working hard to get a handle on the COVID-19 pandemic, the American people are growing more and more skeptical of Doctor Fauci’s advice by the day.
Not only has he presented a false front to the public, but Fauci has changed his opinion and advice on every conceivable subject and never allows for any optimism or hope that this pandemic will end and Americans can just move on with normal life.
And this past Monday, Fauci “celebrated” the anniversary of perhaps the most embarrassing moment of his entire career.
Back on March 8, 2020, Doctor Fauci appeared on 60 Minutes to talk about the COVID-19 pandemic, where he told the American people that wearing a mask wasn’t necessary, one of the many positions he’s flip-flopped the most on over the past year.
“Right now in the United States, people should not be walking around with masks . . . There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask,” said Doctor Fauci in 2020.
Happy anniversary to one of the worst takes ever.
One year ago today, Dr. Fauci went on 60 Minutes and said you didn't need to wear a mask.

But shortly after his appearance on 60 Minutes, the Center for Disease Control released a statement rebuking Doctor Fauci’s advice by recommending Americans do the exact opposite and wear a mask.
“We are not defenseless against COVID-19,” said CDC Director Dr. Robert R. Redfield. “Cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus – particularly when used universally within a community setting. All Americans have a responsibility to protect themselves, their families, and their communities.”
Of course, it wasn’t just the CDC who disagreed with Doctor Fauci.
As former White House Advisor Peter Navarro wrote in an op-ed for The Washington Post:
“In late January, when I was making the case on behalf of the president to take down the flights from China, Fauci fought against the president’s courageous decision — which might well have saved hundreds of thousands of American lives.
When I warned in late January in a memo of a possibly deadly pandemic, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases was telling the news media not to worry.”
Navarro went on to point out how “Fauci was flip-flopping on the use of masks” before warning the American people to take Fauci’s advice with “skepticism and caution.”
