The following article, Fauci Dismisses Criticism For Maskless Photo At Nationals Game, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Dr. Anthony Fauci has spoken out about what he calls “mischievous” critics who gave him the business after a photo went viral showing him at the Washington Nationals game with his mask off.
Fauci also threw out the first pitch of the game, and boy was it a terrible throw. One of the worst in baseball history. Anyway, the doctor appeared on Fox News and explained why he didn’t have his mask on at that particular moment.
Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:
One person in the photo was his wife, and “the other person is a very close friend of mine,” Fauci said.
“I think this is sort of mischievous with this thing going around,” the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases added. “I had my mask around my chin, I had taken it down, I was totally dehydrated, and I was drinking water trying to rehydrate myself.”
Fauci also said he had been tested for the coronavirus a day earlier.
“To pull it down to take some sips of water and put it back up again, I guess if people want to make something about that, they can. But to me, I think that’s just mischievous,” he said.
Well, it’s sort of understandable why folks want to make a big deal out of it. Lots of governors around the country have mandated the wearing of masks, which has led to a lot of strife and division as folks believe being forced to wear the mask, especially without concrete date the things even help fight against the spread of coronavirus, are an encroachment on their liberty.
It was only a few months back that Fauci told everyone to stop buying and wearing masks. And now he’s the poster boy for forcing everyone else to wear them, despite the dubiousness of the science behind their effectiveness.
Guess he needs to expect more of this heckling in the coming days and weeks.
