Over the weekend, Dr. Fauci declared that he would quit if former President Donald J. Trump were to launch a successful presidential bid in 2024.
Fauci, who has long served as the White House Chief Medical Adviser, made his remarks during an interview with CNN’s anchor Jim Acosta, who inquired whether or not Fauci would continue working in his position if Trump were to sweep a 2024 election.
“No,” Fauci promptly declared, before launching an attack on the Trump administration’s handling of the virus.
“If you look at the history of what the response was during the administration, I think, you know, at best,” Fauci stammered, before finally uttering, “you can say it wasn’t optimal.”
“History will speak for itself about that,” the medical advisor quickly added.
Trump has not yet announced a formal 2024 bid, although he has made repeated suggestions that voters may well have an opportunity to vote for him again in the next presidential election.
On his part, Fauci has bragged that working with Biden is “liberating” relative to Trump, effectively alluding to the reality that he faces limited to no accountability in the Biden administration.
Consequently, he warns about “repercussions” if Trump were to become president again.
“I can tell you I take no pleasure at all in being in a situation of contradicting the president,” Fauci declared, in clear reference to Trump’s resistant to draconian lockdowns and other measures that have shown to be largely ineffective.
“So it was really something that you didn’t feel you could actually say something and there wouldn’t be any repercussions about it,” Fauci continued, oblivious to his own absence of accountability.
“The idea that you can get up here and talk about what you know, what the evidence and science [are], and know that’s it … it is somewhat of a liberating feeling,” Fauci continued, without referencing his denial of the science promulgated by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
“Let the science speak,” Fauci roared.
