Fauci: ‘Some People Idolize Me, Put Me on a Pedestal’

Dr. Anthony Fauci has claimed that “some people idolize” him and put the top federal health official “on a pedestal.”

The comments from Fauci come as he prepares to step down from his post after 54 years as a scientist at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID).

Fauci was the director of the NIAID for 38 years.

He also served as Democrat President Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor for the past almost two years.

Since the pandemic first emerged in 2020, Fauci has been thrust into the limelight as a leading health advisor.

However, Fauci has been a polarizing figure and led the push for lockdowns, shutdowns, masking, and vaccine mandates.

Fauci later admitted under oath that promoted these anti-freedom measures after being inspired by the Chinese Communist Party’s handling of the pandemic, as Slay News reported.

He has also been accused of lying about funding the Wuhan lab’s research on gain-of-function, which is now widely considered to have ultimately led to the Covid pandemic.

Despite leaving his government roles this month, Republicans have warned that they plan to investigate Fauci’s action when they take control of the House in the new Congress next month.

Meanwhile, Fauci is already the target of a lawsuit alleging he colluded with Big Tech companies to censor Americans on social media.

Nevertheless, Fauci is gushing over people idolizing him.

“It’s nice that some people idolize me and put me on a pedestal,” Fauci said Tuesday.
