Tony Fauci plays victim card after heavy wave of recent criticism

Like any good Democrat operative who gets called out for their shenanigans, Dr. Tony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), played the all-too-familiar victim card in a recent interview.

According to Fox News, in a recent interview with The New York Times podcast, Sway, Fauci repeatedly referred to himself in the third person — a bizarre, new trend of his — and defended his lifetime of work in fighting against infectious diseases, framing himself as a victim who has only spent his life trying to save lives while being criticized for his actions. 

“Are you kidding me?”

Fauci, who now serves as President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser in addition to his regular government job, has been a bullseye for a number of Republican critics over the past month, including allegations from Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who claims Fauci was well aware of the risks of “gain of function” research that possibly led to the outbreak of COVID-19.

He seemed especially triggered that some of his critics online called him “Hitler.”

“The more extreme they get, the more obvious how political it is … ‘Fauci has blood on his hands,'” Fauci said. “Are you kidding me? … Here’s a guy whose entire life has been devoted to saving lives, and now you’re telling me he’s like Hitler? You know, come on, folks.”

The infectious disease expert went on to touch on the controversy surrounding his early insistence that face masks weren’t necessary for Americans at the beginning of the pandemic, only to completely reverse that opinion just months later.

“The people who are giving the ad hominems are saying, ‘Ah, Fauci misled us,'” the NIAID director said. “First he said, ‘no masks,’ then he said ‘masks.’ Well, let me give you a flash. That’s the way science works.”

Third-person mocking begins

While Fauci seemingly tried his best to defend his actions over the course of the pandemic, many in the social media realm weren’t buying it and piled on the immunologist for continually referring to himself in the third person.

“Talking about himself in the 3rd person while nutpicking his critics will definitely make the criticism go away,” on Twitter user wrote.

Another Twitter user wrote, “‘Fauci is a hero,’ explained Fauci.”

Fauci was also thrust to the top of the national headlines earlier this month after a trove of thousands of his emails were released to the public, with many of the emails showing how Fauci was once very much against the idea of using masks, only to flip-flop numerous times on the issue, which Fauci defended by saying one has to be “humble” enough to change stances with emerging data.

To be fair, Fauci actually got off to a good start for those first few weeks on former President Donald Trump’s COVID-19 task force, but it didn’t take long for many Americans to get the feeling that there’s much more to Fauci than meets the eye.

  4. Come on people, don’t believe everything you’re told. Fauci is the smartest person on the planet, and can’t be mistaken. If he says it, it’s gospel truth. The only other person on the planet even close to him intellectually is Joe Biden, and they both agree on the dangers of the Corona Virus. President Trump, with all the falsehoods he tries to feed to the American public, is as far from the truth as it’s possible to be. If Biden or Fauci say it, it’s gospel truth. Trump is only a businessman, and his theories on how the world works are a fantasy. You all know I’m right.

  5. Amen. Everybody bought many masks, only to find out that they are worthless.
    I never believed him from the get go. It was definitely a Plan to get Biden into the White House. The little weasel and the hysteria he played out. What a piece of junk. He needs to be expelled from the World Science Organization and he needs to be in jail . He is not a hero, he is a zero.

  6. I am making a good salary from home $6580-$7065/week , which is amazing under a year ago I was jobless in a horrible economy. I thank God every day I was blessed with these instructions and now it’s my duty to pay it forward and share it with Everyone,
    Here is I started.…………… https://WWW.CashApp1.Com
