Dr. Fauci has recently been sounding more and more like an authoritarian.
Fauci recently was quoted saying the U.S. has an ‘independent spirit,’ but now is the time to ‘do what you’re told’.
Really Dr. Fauci?
Who made you the Commander and Chief?
His statements were made at the Washington National Cathedral with other top health experts on the pandemic in the audience.

FAUCI: Our country has an “independent spirit” but “now is the time to do what you’re told”
— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) November 13, 2020
The New York Post covered Fauci’s authoritative statements and had this to say:
Dr. Anthony Fauci has some new coronavirus guidance: “Do what you’re told.”
In an interview Thursday, the coronavirus task force member and infectious disease expert pushed back on the notion that scientists were “authoritarian” for promoting strict lockdowns and social distancing measures.
But the 79-year-old suggested the American spirit of independence had gotten in the way and the nation needed to follow their orders, whether they liked it or not.
“I was talking with my UK colleagues who are saying the UK is similar to where we are now, because each of our countries have that independent spirit,” Fauci said during a panel with other experts in Washington, DC.
“I can understand that, but now is the time to do what you’re told,” he said, as first reported by CNBC.
Im sorry but who elected Fauci? No one. No one elected this guy. No. https://t.co/cnxRrXGeTf

CNBC chipped in too:
Whitehouse coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci thinks that Americans have an independent spirit, but that there are times when it’s in our best interest to follow the rules.
Fauci, speaking on Thursday at Washington National Cathedral with other top health experts on the pandemic, noted that it is a bit unfair to compare the United States’ coronavirus response with other countries. The United States isn’t an island with five million people that can easily be shut down, he notes. So suppressing and controlling the virus is a lot more of a challenge.
“I was talking with my U.K. colleagues who are saying the U.K. is similar to where we are now, because each of our countries have that independent spirit,” he said on stage. “I can understand that, but now is the time to do what you’re told.”
Do you trust Tony Fauci?

I don’t know about you but I rather not take orders from Dr. Fauci.
What do you think about Fauci telling you what to do?
