Someone made a good point a couple of days ago — how many liberals were celebrating Dr. Fauci’s 80th birthday more than Christmas Eve? It was a safe story for the media to cover, seeing as there was no problematic religious element to it. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer gave a shout-out to “national treasure” Fauci while holding his Fauci bobblehead, and then later that night aired a tribute to a truly great man:
My tribute to a truly great man. Thanks Dr. Anthony Fauci for all you do. And Happy Birthday. pic.twitter.com/kOI3EiszoB

Now CBS News is reporting that the “Fauci effect” is responsible for a surge in applicants to medical schools.

Jesse Kelly says it’s a sign that the culture’s completely upside-down:
It’s not that our country has bad people. Every country has bad people. The problem is our country elevates and celebrates our bad people while reviling and destroying the good ones.
A completely upside down culture. https://t.co/0Yl9JBbTqH

And I would make the argument that people who adore Fauci are the people we least want being doctors.

I've found time after time the best doctors at the VA were in the Navy. I don't know how this helps the thread, just saying. I was in the Army, and it's still true. They're great.

Just wait till they find out single payer healthcare reduces their wages by 40%

And with the wave of woke politics in school imagine the mediocre medical professionals on the horizon

YES!!!!! I'm seeing this everywhere….including schools! It's becoming unpopular to do the right thing, because the right thing gets you nothing. Authority figures seem to be trained to only acknowledge the people that scream the loudest and start the most (theoretical) fires.

How do the medical schools know the surge isn’t a Dr Biden effect?

Imagine if Fauci changed your medical prognosis as much as he changes his mind on policy. You’d be assigned hospice every three days.

Medical school always attracts a fair number of sociopaths and Fauci's current prominence is surely going to be a big boost for that.

People are worried there aren't any qualified doctors after Dr. Fauci's bumbling Covid response or….
They believe anyone can be a doctor given Fauci's failure

Great. Now young people want to become doctors because they think it'll make them famous.

A culture that venerates George Floyd but not David Dorn will get a lot more Floyds and a lot less Dorns.

The surge is probably coming from thinking their college will be paid for.

Medical schools see increase in megalomaniacs, narcissists and control freaks.

What a shame. Those med school applicants are missing their true callings, like journalism and poli-sci.
As did Fauci.

The Fauci worship in the pathetic media is really gross to watch.
— Pistachio Dynamite. (@jennyjupite) December 25, 2020
Maybe CNN could tone down the adoration a little bit.
Dr. Anthony Fauci’s 80th birthday seems to be eclipsing Christmas Eve this year https://t.co/btntQtgx59
