Dr. Anthony Fauci privately criticized the decision to hold the White House Correspondents’ Dinner while speaking on a call with public health experts on Thursday afternoon.
POLITICO reports that the chief medical advisor to the President expressed frustration with the growing awareness that the pandemic is effectively over and said he feared people are losing sight of the need to continue protecting the nation’s most vulnerable.
DR. FAUCI PARTIES WITH DON LEMON BEFORE SKIPPING CORRESPONDENTS’ DINNER BECAUSE OF COVID
The outlet reports that Fauci singled it out as a troubling sign that many Americans no longer view COVID as a serious threat, but did not directly criticize Biden or other officials — the White House Correspondents’ Association required all attendees to be vaccinated and show proof of a negative test for attendance to the event.
While the dinner featured thousands of guests and was held inside a ballroom, Fauci questioned why so many people felt comfortable gathering maskless indoors with a new surge of COVID cases.
WHCA President Steven Portnoy told POLITICO that the organization “implemented protocols that went beyond any guidance or regulation issued by the [Centers for Disease Control] or the D.C. Health Department.”
POLITICO reports that Fauci’s comments were noteworthy because they appeared to be distinctly different than the relaxed stance toward the dinner taken by the White House and Covid-19 Response Coordinator Ashish Jha — Jha attended the dinner and was also present on the Thursday call.
On Thursday’s call with public health experts, Fauci took a more urgent tone, with Fauci saying those who were returning to their normal lives without concern for vulnerable populations were “irresponsible,” POLITICO reports.

I only have to hear about him on here so let’s stop…
I’m watching the Stanley Cup playoffs and the arenas are packed for every game and no one is wearing a mask.. In fact, the only person in the whole damn place wearing a mask is hockey’s version of the sideline reporter.
The timer of fame says 14:59 – tick tock -. Fauxci is almost done.
FJB, the reporters, AND especially Fauci…
Agree,went to concert at oldest dance hall in Texas last night and not a face mask in sight.
The only person who is irresponsible is Fauci. He’s in it for the cash and his Napoleon complex. Go read RFK Jr’s book on the Real Tony Fauci. This guy has single handedly injured more people than WWII did. He should be sent to the gallows along with all his captured PI’s.
His next career should be lab animal.
Charles, my man, don’t sugarcoat it! In all seriousness, who died and made that SOB king?
The murdering evil Nazi Keebler elf Gates/China weasel puppet phony Fauci just won’t go away.
