Dr. Anthony Fauci has saved the day.
During an appearance on CNN’s Sesame Street special, Fauci was asked a question by Paxton, a six-year old boy from Geneva, Illinois, about Santa Claus. The question was whether or not Santa would be able to visit him during coronavirus season.
“Well, I have to say I took care of that for you,” Fauci responded. “I was worried you all would be upset. So, I took a trip up there to the north pole. I went there, and I vaccinated Santa Claus myself. I measured his level of immunity, and he is good to go.”

What a great response, right? Solid, quick thinking from the good doctor. But … there are a couple holes in this story.
First of all, why does Santa need to get vaccinated in the first place? According to Fauci back in November, Santa “has a lot of good innate immunity.” If he’s immune, he wouldn’t need the vaccination in the first place.
Secondly, hasn’t Fauci been pressing people to avoid travel? Some people might take his trip to the north pole as a “do as I say, not as I do” type of situation.
More than likely, most kids won’t pick up on the inconsistencies of those statements from Fauci. But based on some of the 100 percent authentic, truthful tweets I’ve seen on social media, there are some pretty woke kids out there nowadays.
Try and tell me that’s not a three-year-old with a few questions for Fauci right now.
