Joe Biden was recently talking about all the meetings and face time he has with Dr. Fauci and joked that he wasn’t the real president.
For Americans who wonder who is actually in charge at the White House, this was no laughing matter.
It’s just the latest example of Biden showing how out of touch he is with the public.

Joe Biden ‘Jokes’ About Not Really Being President but No One Is Laughing
For a while now, I’ve been decrying the trend of Democrats pushing for supposed “experts” to run every facet of the federal government. That has led to mediocre academics and bureaucrats being given extreme levels of power. Yet, while there are many different people who fit that description, no better example exists than Dr. Anthony Fauci.
I used to joke about the fame-obsessed doctor actually being the acting president. But because our politics only has one mode, which is to say always becoming crazier, Joe Biden is just outright admitting it now.
FOX News has the transcript:
President Biden joked on Thursday that Dr. Anthony Fauci is so involved in White House affairs that sometimes it feels like he is the real president.
During an address on the White House’s latest strategy to deal with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Biden opened by applauding Fauci, whom Biden said he sees more than his own wife. Biden went on to joke that Fauci is the real commander-in-chief.
“I’ve seen more of Dr. Fauci than I have my wife, we kid each other,” Biden quipped. “Look, who’s president? Fauci!”
