The great flip-flopper, Anthony Fauci, announced that he will be stepping down by 2024 regardless who the president is.
He has been the country’s leading infectious disease expert for entirely too long. After disasterously handling the Covid pandemic, he’s finally doing what he should have done years ago. Quitting.
Hesaid he will likely step down from his leadership positions by 2024 during an interview with Neil Cavuto last week.
He made the comments while being interviewed by Neil Cavuto on Fox News Wednesday.
“You’ve dealt with COVID under this administration and the prior administration,” said Cavuto. “Would you continue serving that role if the prior president, Donald Trump, returns to the White House?”
“Well, I’m not going to get involved in any politics about who is or is not going in the White House,” responded Fauci.
“By the way, by the time that happens, I think I won’t be around, no matter who the president is,” he added.
“What does that mean? You’re done?” Cavuto asked.
“No, I’m not done yet,” he laughed. “But you’re talking about a few years from now. And I don’t foresee that I will be doing this a few years from now.”
“So, no matter who is president, whether it’s Joe Biden getting reelected or someone else, Donald Trump or anyone else, you would not continue?” Cavuto asked.
“That’s exactly correct,” he replied. “I have been doing this now for 38 years. It will be over 40 years if I wait that long.”
Fauci, 81-years-old, was appointed director of NIAID in 1984. He has poorly advised seven president while performing sick experiments on children with AIDS in New York and Beagles.
His most recent failure was the handling of the Covid pandemic for both President Trump and former vice president Biden.
Last month, the infectious disease director indicated that he would not stay as Chief Medical Advisor to the President — a position established by the Trump administration in 2019 — if Trump were reelected, after having frequently bumped heads with the 45th president in the first year of the pandemic.
“If Trump were to return to the White House as president, and COVID is still a threat or there is some other public health emergency, would you have confidence in his ability — would you have confidence in his ability to deal with a pandemic of this nature?” CNN host Jim Acosta asked Fauci on May 16. “Would you want to stay on in your post?”
“Well, no to the second question,” Fauci replied with a laugh. “The first question, if you look at the history of what the [COVID-19] response was during the [Trump] administration, I think at best you could say it wasn’t optimal.”
Will he keep to his word and leave? Or will we have endure even more time with him experimenting on us and flip-flopping answers every other week?
