Remember that episode of the Office where Michael Scott’s girlfriend breaks up with him right before Christmas, and so he tries to cancel Christmas and New Year’s for his employees?
That’s essentially what Anthony Fauci is doing right now.
He goes on television and pretends he has authority over what the American people do with their lives.
He has tried to cancel Christmas for several years in a row without success.
Fauci has now turned his sights on News Year’s Eve.
He told Americans they should stay away from large gatherings this year.
In regards to New Year’s Eve parties, Fauci said:
“There will be other years to do that, but not this year.”
As much of a joke he has become, his narcissism allows him to continue to present himself as an authority figure.
Remember, he isn’t one.
Fox News has more on Fauci's latest pathetic attempt at a power play:
Top White House coronavirus adviser Anthony Fauci said on CNN Monday morning that Americans should cancel their New Year's Eve parties due to the increasing spread of the omicron coronavirus variant, as Americans struggle to find some normalcy as the pandemic wraps up its second year.
"I would stay away from that," Fauci said when asked about the annual parties on CNN's "New Day."
"I have been telling people consistently that if you're vaccinated and boosted and you have a family setting, in the home with family and relatives," it's OK to gather, Fauci continued. "But when you're talking about a New Year's Eve party, we have 30, 40, 50 people celebrating. You do not know the status of their vaccination, I would recommend strongly stay away from that this year."
At this point, Anthony Fauci has become Michael Scott from the Office, threatening to take away all of the holidays despite having no authority to do so:
Newsmax with more on Fauci's "advice" for this year's New Year's Eve:
Dr. Anthony Fauci on Monday advised Americans to stay away from large New Year's Eve gatherings because of the rapid spread of the omicron coronavirus variant and the difficulties of getting tested.
He also acknowledged that the United States should have had more testing capacity before the variant caused another disease surge.
"We had a conflation of high demands because of the concern about omicron, which is a justifiable concern, but the high demand that was triggered by the holiday season, people getting ready to travel getting ready to go and mix with family members and friends," Fauci said on CNN's "New Day."
Fauci, who is President Joe Biden's chief medical adviser and the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, also acknowledged that "we should have had more tests available," but insisted he wasn't "making any excuses for it."
