Dr. Fauci is apparently considering retiring.
This will come as welcome news for millions of Americans who are absolutely sick of hearing from him.
Fauci lied to the American people repeatedly and claimed he was doing it for the greater good. The American people are very forgiving but Fauci has worn out his welcome.
ABC News reports:
A resurgence of cases could also mean Americans are asked to wear masks again, which Fauci predicted would be an uphill battle.
“From what I know about human nature, which I think is pretty much a lot, people are kind of done with COVID,” Fauci said.
Still, he defended the CDC decision to loosen its mask recommendations earlier this month by shifting to a strategy that focused more on severe outcomes, like hospitalizations and deaths, rather than on daily case spread.
“You can go ahead and continue to tiptoe towards normality, which is what we’re doing, but at the same time, be aware that you may have to reverse,” Fauci said.
And if the U.S. does continue to make its way back toward normal times, Fauci himself has a personal choice to consider. At 81 years old, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is “certainly” thinking about retirement.
“I have said that I would stay in what I’m doing until we get out of the pandemic phase and I think we might be there already, if we can stay in this,” Fauci said, referring to the falling cases and hospitalizations in the U.S.
“I can’t stay at this job forever. Unless my staff is gonna find me slumped over my desk one day. I’d rather not do that,” he said, laughing.
Is anyone going to miss this guy?
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government's top infectious disease expert, hinted at plans to retire in the near future as long as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations remain low.

Too bad he didn’t consider this earlier.
