First Thanksgiving and now Christmas.
Dr. Fauci once again is coming across as an authoritarian and less like a Doctor.
Fauci in a recent interview with Chuck Todd from NBC News said Christmas won’t be any different than Thanksgiving.
He went on to recommend the same restrictions that were used on Thanksgiving should be used on Christmas.
The Grinch won’t steal Christmas but instead, Fauci and Democratic Governors will try to lock it down.

ABC News covered Fauci’s statements and shared these details:
As the nation braces for what is likely to be the busiest travel day of the year amid a continued nationwide surge in coronavirus cases, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday that he does not foresee current holiday public health restrictions and recommendations being relaxed by the end of the year.
“When you have the kind of inflection that we have, it doesn’t all of a sudden turn around like that,” said Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on ABC’s “This Week.”
“Clearly in the next few weeks, we’re gonna have the same sort of thing,” he told “This Week” co-anchor Martha Raddatz, noting that the U.S. “may see a surge upon a surge” of additional new cases due to Thanksgiving gatherings and travel. “We don’t want to frighten people, but that’s just the reality.”

CNBC chipped in too:
Fauci urged Americans to be careful as they return from Thanksgiving holiday travel and wear masks to mitigate the spread of the virus. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in November warned people against traveling for Thanksgiving, more than 9 million people traveled in airports in the week running up to the holiday and the weekend following it.
“I think we are going to have to make decisions as a nation, state, city and family that we are in a very difficult time, and we’re going to have to do the kinds of restrictions of things we would have liked to have done, particularly in this holiday season, because we’re entering into what’s really a precarious situation,” Fauci said.
