Dr. Fauci Gets Roasted After Abysmal First Pitch and Mask-Less Spectating

Not a good look…

Baseball is back – well, sort of – and Major League Baseball seemed primed to make a political point or two on its opening night.

First there was a tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement, in which every player on the field for the playing of the National Anthem during the Yankees/Nationals game took a knee.  This was perhaps not unexpected, as the MLB has been outwardly in favor of such statements in recent days, even using their official Twitter account to challenge social media users who disagreed.

Then they asked Dr. Anthony Fauci to throw out the first pitch of the game.

Fauci is known to be a fan of the Nationals but, more importantly, has been touted as one of the top epidemiologists in the nation.  As such, he has repeatedly been at odds with the Trump administration when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic.

His first pitch was, to put it nicely, not so hot.

But what really irked some Americans was Dr. Fauci’s mask-less spectating. 

After his on-camera appearance, Fauci sat in the stands to watch the game and removed his mask. He was also not properly socially distanced (six feet apart) from two other people in the ballpark.

“And there’s Dr. Anthony Fauci showing us all he knows exactly how well masks work!” wrote former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson, a frequent critic of Fauci’s alarmism about coronavirus. “Thanks for the lesson, doc.”

Of course, while the people seated with Fauci may very well have been in his daily “pod”, the criticism stands on account of the need for medical professionals to lead by example.
