Fauci jabbed online for saying he wants to ‘get away from the blame game’ over shutdowns

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the fork tongued figurehead of The Science™, continued his pathological revision of his actions throughout COVID with a shot at “big time Monday-morning quarterbacking” that only dug his hole deeper in the eyes of the public.

The comments came as the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) joined CNN’s Christiane Amanpour for yet another puff piece interview defending the darling of Big Pharma-funded corporate media. Harkening back to a New York Times profile done about him days earlier, Fauci was teed up to opine on the “real lessons for public health.”

“I think we have to get away from the blame game because so many of the things that you have mentioned were unknowns at the time,” he said regarding school closures, asymptomatic spread and the hyped up jabs that didn’t stop transmission.

“Let me give you an example of a ‘partially right’ decision,” Fauci said before referencing refrigerated trucks parked outside hospitals to store bodies and added, “I don’t think anybody would argue with the fact that you had to shut down.”

No matter his narcissistic take that his view aligned with the prevailing opinion, the public was quick to point out how off the mark the once-highest paid government official was and that culpability would still be demanded.

“‘The Blame Game’ is otherwise known as ‘Accountability,” one user wrote. “Leaders must be accountable to the people in their charge. Did Fauci close schools? Maybe…he certainly didn’t help. Ignoring accountability empowers leaders to do whatever they want, whenever, [without] consequence. Dangerous.”

Of course, the doctor who had a standing invitation to every media outlet and appeared routinely at then-President Donald Trump’s daily press briefings in 2020 let slip a tidbit of information that could well have changed the landscape had he broadcast it at the time.

“My daughter is a school teacher in New Orleans,” he told Amanpour as he strained to hold back his amusement. “They closed down for two weeks and were essentially open for the rest of the time…and the result was, you know, they didn’t do too badly.”

“Neat,” commentator Mary Katharine Ham reacted. “Really seems like something you could have spread the word about maybe 2 and a half years ago.”

Independent journalist Kyle Becker’s take was even harsher as he wrote, “Public officials who defraud the American people, advocate policies that infringe on Constitutional rights, recommend lockdowns that do immense amounts of economic damage, and harm an entire generation of children emotionally and academically over a virus with a 99.999% survival rate for healthy young people don’t get a ‘forgive and forget’ pass. Prison is too good for Fauci, but it would be a terrific start.”

What Fauci’s really saying may best have been summed up as, “Let’s not bicker and argue over who ruined whose lives.”
