Dr. Anthony Fauci threw out a pitch last night. One so bad it’s drawing comparisons to 50 Cent’s infamous showing. You can see the doc’s work here.
While Fauci had a few defenders, about 95% of the internet crushed him.
Take a look at some of the best:
His throw was certainly socially distant. https://t.co/4ikVbB7EL9

Outkick’s Gary Sheffield had takes:
After that first pitch I would tell Fauci to stick to science but he doesn’t know what he’s doing there, either.

A serious reaction.
Dr. Fauci strode confidently all the way to the mound to throw out the first pitch and I thought, "This is going to be strong." Instead, it rivaled some of the worst ever. Huh?

He clearly doesn’t want anyone to catch anything

Dr. Fauci’s first pitch was socially distancing its self from the plate.

This next one hurts.
Dr Fauci just joined
the mayor of Cincinnati
In the land of historically terrible first pitches

Even a KO punch.
Okay, so Fauci's ceremonial First Pitch today missed the catcher's mitt by a county or two. Still way closer to target than any of his COVID predictions. https://t.co/fdiiYjKjSu

Fauci’s pitch was as on point as his covid assessment.

Always good to take a shot at the untrustworthy media.

“Fauci, like all other medical experts, has been advocating for months for Americans to practice social distancing… It's always heartening to see someone who preaches such advice follow it, even if it is with his pitch location.”

Which was the best?
