Dr. Anthony Fauci’s face has graced magazine covers, t-shirts, pillows, and prayer candles. He was the hero of COVID19 pandemic, after all.

You know they’re gonna do their damnedest to spin it, considering how big a role they played in propping him up. They’re not exactly known for holding themselves accountable for screwing up.

Guess they have that in common with Dr. Fauci.
