Well, that didn’t take long.
As soon as Donald Trump headed down to sunny Mar-a-Lago, the knives came out, didn’t they? Once he was out of Washington’s hair, Donald Trump has suffered innumerable slights and digs, many emanating from those who were previously working in close proximity to him.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is no exception.
New York Times reporter Michael Scheer asked Fauci to share his emotional thoughts about the change of administrations and speaking about the virus going forward.
“The idea that you can get up here and talk about what you know, what evidence, what the science is and know that that’s it, let the science speak, it is somewhat of a liberating feeling,” he said.
Scheer noted that Fauci had already joked about feeling liberated under President Joe Biden.
“You said I was joking about it. I was very serious,” Fauci said with a laugh.
Of course, as should be the case with all of these new claims of old oppression, we should note that Dr. Fauci’s personal statements on the COVID-19 crisis often flew in the face of what Trump was hoping to convey. What else he could have said has yet to be seen.
