Fauci Resigns Leaving Decades Of Damage In His Wake
Fauci Resigns Leaving Decades Of Damage In His Wake
Fauci resigns. Yes, you read that correctly. Instead of continuing his trail of destruction and damage, he’s leaving at the end of this year.
I am announcing today that I will be stepping down from the positions of Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation, as well as the position of Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden. I will be leaving these positions in December of this year 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. 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.
It’s a complete and utter, look at MEEEEE I’M THE GREATEST! statement. We are supposed to continue to applaud the little troll’s accomplishments just as Vanity Fair did with their fawning cover story in 2020, numerous awards given for his destructive stance on the Covid pandemic, and this gushingly weird article in the Washington Post published this June.
Fauci commits acts of science 12 to 16 hours a day, seven days a week. No wonder the man wants a drink. But this schedule and suck-it-up worldview have allowed the 81-year-old — who serves as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and chief medical adviser to the president of the United States — to tackle one pandemic after another, from AIDS to covid-19. During the seven hours I’m at his house on a Sunday in June, I am uncomfortably aware that every moment we spend together is a moment when Fauci is not working.
The author ‘follows the Covid guidance’ leading up to his meeting with Fauci (which includes still masking OUTSIDE) and then commits a cardinal sin.
I manage to follow this guidance, but not to keep myself from extending my hand when I meet Fauci, which he shakes after one horrifying moment of hesitation. “I’m sorry I did that,” I say, uselessly. “No, it’s fine,” Fauci says with the resigned patience of a man who has dealt with many people who have made his life harder over the past few years. (Several days later, he will test positive for the coronavirus, as will two others who also attended the reunion for the College of the Holy Cross’s class of 1962, which took place the same June weekend as the dedication of the school’s Anthony S. Fauci Integrated Science Complex. For my mental health, I choose to believe the gathering of elders was the vector of infection.)
The entire article is an ode to Fauci’s ego.
Fauci has benefitted monetarily and publicity-wise from every major outbreak since HIV/Aids.
Fauci has been at the forefront of every new and re-emerging infectious disease threat the country has faced over the past four decades, including HIV/AIDS, West Nile virus, the 2001 anthrax attacks, pandemic influenza, Ebola and Zika, and most recently the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Because of Dr. Fauci’s many contributions to public health, lives here in the United States and around the world have been saved. As he leaves his position in the U.S. Government, I know the American people and the entire world will continue to benefit from Dr. Fauci’s expertise in whatever he does next,” Biden said.
Biden’s statement did contain an unintentional truth.
Following news Fauci will depart NIAID in December, President Biden praises Fauci as "a dedicated public servant, and a steady hand with wisdom and insight honed over decades."

Fauci definitely touched a lot of lives during the Covid response. Lives that will never be the same. Loved ones died in isolation, babies were born in isolation. Our children are horrendously behind in education due to locking down the schools, and their resilience is at a dangerously low ebb. The medical consequences of locking down doctors offices and hospitals have kept far too many from getting necessary and early medical care, which has led to even worse medical diagnoses later on. But sure, Joe, tell us again how many lives Fauci impacted for the better?
He completely botched the response to HIV/Aids and kept life-saving drugs away from patients.
He scared people so badly that a child, Ryan White, was ostracized because Fauci insisted the Aids virus was…airborne.
He vilified medical professionals and conspired with his NIH costar, Francis Collins, to keep the Great Barrington Declaration from view. He happily applauded when people bringing medical views he didn’t like to media and social media were driven off their platforms.
He has championed the vaccines and boosters, even after getting Paxlovid/Covid rebound.
He is a fan of lockdowns and isolation forever, even among the least vulnerable, our children.
Therapeutics that help keep the virus from getting worse? Fauci put the kibosh on that.
Fauci firmly believes that he is answerable to NO ONE.
And far too many people will continue to blindly follow a little toad who has botched everything, yet will make bank with one of the largest government pensions ever.
Sen. @RandPaul levels Fauci for recommending boosters without any data:— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) June 16, 2022
Paul: "If I give a patient ten mRNA vaccines, and they … make antibody each time, is that proof we should give ten boosters, Dr. Fauci?”
Fauci: "No, that is somewhat of an absurd exaggeration —" pic.twitter.com/UAoChzGkII
Fauci’s resignation will not prevent a full-throated investigation into the origins of the pandemic. He will be asked to testify under oath regarding any discussions he participated in concerning the lab leak.— Rand Paul (@RandPaul) August 22, 2022
Yes, Fauci. You need to answer for your role in this pandemic. You need to answer for what you knew and WHEN you knew it regarding this virus.
in light of Fauci’s announced December retirement… https://t.co/zxNhgCmBgp— Jerry Dunleavy (@JerryDunleavy) August 22, 2022
Yes, he should also answer for his role with the EcoHealth Alliance funding that Deanna wrote about the other day.
Fauci’s “accomplishments” have been horrendously detrimental to public health and he is definitely responsible for the lack of trust many Americans feel about those agencies.
Good riddance Fauci.
