Fauci a victim of too much Fauci
A year ago, I told a friend that Dr. Fauci should be more like Dr. Birx. I'm not talking about wearing a scarf, but rather the fact that Dr. Birx was more discreet in her public comments. Not Dr. Fauci. He couldn't wait to do an interview and tell us how smart he was. Unfortunately, Dr. Fauci did not realize that many of the media were just using him to promote an anti-Trump agenda.
It probably would have worked out better for Dr. Fauci if President Trump had been re-elected. In other words, he would have kept his seat as the media's favorite anti-Trump critic. Instead, Dr. Fauci is now under the microscope, and it won't be pretty the rest of the way.
This is from Fox News:
Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., called for Fauci to be removed from his post and for a Congressional inquiry into the origins of the virus.
"Anthony Fauci's recently released emails and investigative reporting about #COVID19 origins are shocking," Hawley tweeted Friday. "The time has come for Fauci to resign and for a full congressional investigation into the origins of #COVID19 - and into any and all efforts to prevent a full accounting."
"And Congress must also find out to what extent Fauci's NIAID was involved in financing research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology," he added.
We may not get that investigation with the Democrat majority in the House. It could change if more voters get angry about China's role in the virus and Dr. Fauci's contradictions.
As the song goes, "What a difference a day makes, 24 little hours." In this case, what a difference a year makes after reading a few emails.
To be fair, Dr. Fauci was working with incomplete information a year ago. In other words, no one really knew everything a year ago. Dr. Fauci would have been better off if he had spent his time shopping for a scarf rather than telling everyone how smart he was and suggest that President Trump was not.
As they say in Spanish, "se ha vuelto la tortilla." It literally means the tortilla has flipped, and now the other side is getting cooked. In practical terms, it means it's a different story now.
