Perhaps one of Fauci’s biggest and most dramatic failings has been on masks.
Early on, he famously opined on 60 Minutes that he was confident that masks didn’t work, that they might only block “a droplet or two,” but didn’t provide the protection people thought they did.
He then confirmed the same information to people privately asking for advice on whether they should wear masks when traveling.
He later absurdly claimed that his initial comments were made out of a desire to protect supply for healthcare workers. Except, of course, healthcare workers would never wear the types of cloth masking that Fauci and his allies at the CDC were recommending.
Not to mention that his claim is made even more ridiculous by the fact that he told people privately not to wear masks.
Had he believed they worked but wanted to protect limited availabilities, he could have easily told those who asked to wear a mask without jeopardizing any large scale supply for hospital workers.
Of course, that’s not what he did.
His claim that masking would lower transmission and would demonstrate clearly beneficial results compared to areas that didn’t mask has been proven false repeatedly:
Well after it had been confirmed, by copious amounts of data, that masks don’t work, Fauci continued to advocate for universal masking.
Even today, he’s remained completely steadfast that masks work, despite the conclusive evidence to the contrary.
Recently, after his incessant mask wearing was completely ineffective at preventing him from being infected with the virus, Fauci continued to recommend
people wear masks while lying about their effectiveness, saying they were “recommending people when they are in indoor congregate settings to wear a mask.”
“Those are simple, doable things that can help prevent us from having even more of a problem than we’re having right now.”
Just like the mask mandates during winter 2021-2022 were able to prevent the spread of the virus, right?
