It’s funny: When InStyle had Dr. Anthony Fauci as its cover star, it posed him in a chair, poolside (while the COVID-19 pandemic was raging).

Is it just a coincidence then, that the New Yorker has decided to elevate Fauci to a lifeguard station?

We had to check the date on the tweet to be sure it was current, taking into account all we’ve learned about Fauci recently. We’d thought all of the praise pieces had been done last year, but we guess they’re still coming.

Seriously, we’ve had more than we can take from the good doctor.
