To call this guy a “hack” would be too generous.
More like a medical tyrant.
Hey Fauch, remember “two weeks to flatten the curve”?
I knew it was a lie at the time you said it, but America went along with you.
Welcome to day 280 of two weeks to flatten the curve.
Then it was the virus spreads on surfaces.
Then not surfaces.
Then it can only go one way down the aisles at the grocery store.
Then it was it can’t get you if you’re seated at a restaurant, but it will if you’re not wearing a mask while you walk to your table!
Then it was the virus gets really dangerous in bars after 10:00pm but before that no big deal.
The latest lie?
It’s VERY dangerous for Americans to see their children during Christmas.
What a piece of work!
Take a look:
This is quintessential bureaucratic tyranny. Don't listen to the Supreme Nanny in Charge. Resist. See your family and tell the Nanny State to mind its own damn business.https://t.co/oQV8Nz1MwX #FoxNews

People have not been taking the advice too well.
One man wrote poetry:
'Twas the night before Christmas, and in Fauci's house / He'll celebrate 80, holed up with his spouse / The children send greetings by FaceTime and Zoom / To spare their aged parents a virulent doom https://t.co/Q0foWszbjR

Others resorted to profanity:
Oh, %#&$ no.
“But that’s just one of the things you’re going to have to accept as we go through this unprecedented challenging time." https://t.co/x6pXwJUvow

Fox News had more details on the Fauci faux paux:
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, said this week that he and his wife will not be seeing his three adult children for Christmas or for his birthday on Christmas Eve amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and urged other Americans to do the same.
Fauci made the comments during an interview with the Washington Post’s Power Up newsletter. He said it would mark the first Christmas not spent with his three daughters since they were born.
“I’m going to be with my wife – period,” Fauci told the outlet on Monday. “The Christmas holiday is a special holiday for us because Christmas Eve is my birthday,” said Fauci, who is turning 80. “And Christmas Day is Christmas Day. And they are not going to come home … That’s painful. We don’t like that. But that’s just one of the things you’re going to have to accept as we go through this unprecedented challenging time.”
Fauci, noting that many Americans ignored health guidelines over Thanksgiving, warned that Christmas cannot be “business as usual.”
“Stay at home as much as you can, keep your interactions to the extent possible to members of the same household,” Fauci said. “This cannot be business as usual this Christmas because we’re already in a very difficult situation, and we’re going to make it worse, if we don’t do something about it.”
Fauci urged resilience, qualifying that the pandemic is “an unusual situation” and is “not going to last forever.”
“It is highly likely that with vaccines being distributed, that we will be back to normal by next Christmas,” Fauci said.
