In case you’ve been wondering about the CDC’s thought process when it comes to guidelines on what people who have been fully vaccinated against COVID19 can do, Dr. Anthony Fauci cleared it all up this morning:
Fauci, asked “what’s the science” for denying vaccinated Americans a return to travel, can’t explain.

Fauci should’ve just gone with that. At least it’s catchy.
all hail the science! https://t.co/GtbXeEH0Dd

The CDC is going to be providing you with recommendations regarding “getting a haircut” more than a year into the pandemic? I’m sure glad each and every one of us stayed away from that salon/barber for the last 53 weeks. Aren’t you? https://t.co/tvykAjNHIT

I guess Nancy Pelosi's secret maskless luxury hair salon is all booked up, huh? https://t.co/VEL8hxjAja

"Better safe than sorry" isn't "science". It's a judgement call based on non-empirical factors.
That's fine, risk/reward with limited and imperfect information is a part of life. Let's just not pretend it's "science". https://t.co/4a1tvoRDR7

Why not? Invoking “science” in response to criticism has gotten them this far … why stop now?

It's been a guessing game for Fauci the whole time. No better than a weather forecaster

Maybe that’s by design.

We were willing to give Anthony Fauci the benefit of the doubt for a while. A lot of people were. But we’ve run out of patience.
In a precise, technical sense – which is to say, when you go through the checklist of how conspiracy theorists talk and argue – Fauci is beginning to flirt with vaccine denial. It's batty to say we don't have data & evidence for modeling effects of travel by vaccinated Americans. https://t.co/9avCBFWNpH

What a long, strange trip it’s been.
The Infallible Fauci is a fraud and should be ignored at this point. Go live your lives instead of praying at the alter of overpaid government stooges who are drunk on power they never intend to give away. https://t.co/rA9oKOrmEb
