Dr. Anthony Fauci was elevated to revered status by most of the mainstream media as soon as he joined President Joe Biden as his chief medical adviser on the COVID-19 pandemic.
As Fox News reported, one MSNBC anchor fawned over the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) in what many believed was an embarrassing moment, proudly admitting during her segment that she’s a “Fauci groupie.”
It was MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace who made the admission, bragging during her show that she adheres to Fauci’s every word of guidance as if it’s pandemic gospel.
“I’m a Fauci groupie,” Wallace said. “I’m thrice-vaccinated, mask adherent. I buy KN95 masks by the, you know, caseload. They’re in every pocket. I wear them everywhere except when I sit down.”
Not surprisingly, Wallace was absolutely dragged on social media after making the ridiculous comments, with many users suggesting she form a Fauci-oriented cult.

“It is impossible to overstate how much it has influenced US Covid policy that many of the people with the largest platforms in the corporate press either are (or insist on acting) shamelessly neurotic,” tweeted conservative commentator Drew Holden.
The Daily Caller’s David Hookstead added: “This is incredibly embarrassing and humiliating. Imagine pledging loyalty to Fauci in this pathetic fashion on live TV.”
Many users went on to mock the MSNBC Fauci loyalist for not wearing a mask during her segment, joking that she must know the virus can’t hurt someone when they’re sitting down and on live television.
While Fauci continues to enjoy impunity and worship from the liberal mainstream media, the doctor faced new criticism this week from his fiercest Republican opponent, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY),” Fox News reported.
Paul accused Fauci of intentionally “deemphasizing” therapeutic treatments for COVID-19, which Paul, a physician himself, said could have saved thousands of lives if Fauci would have encouraged their use like he’s done with vaccines, which aren’t working as intended.
“I would venture to say that thousands of people die in our country every month now from COVID because [Fauci’s] deemphasized the idea that there are therapeutics,” the Kentucky senator said during an interview with his father.
