  1. Dr. Anthony Fauci is a tyrannical actor for big pharma!

    Always has been always will be!

    He has bumbled viruses and pushed and wasted taxpayer monies ever since the AIDS pandemic.


  2. Masks don't work. Enough trying g to make it seem like they do. Even N95 cannot stop inhalation or sneezes and coughs. YOURE NOT PROTECTED WITH A MASK ON. YOU NEED AT MINIMUM A HAZMAT SUIT WITH PRIVATE AIR SUPPLY.

  3. The Real Anthony Fauci (book) details how Fauci, Gates, and their cohorts use their control of media outlets, scientific journals, key government and quasi-governmental agencies, global intelligence agencies, and influential scientists and physicians to flood the public with fearful propaganda about COVID-19 virulence and pathogenesis, and to muzzle debate and ruthlessly censor dissent.

  4. 12 days ago that's something to do with Christmas the 12 days of new product lines get your absolutely free samples.
    That is very generous of him to do that he is just like Santa 🎅 but looks like a elf.

  5. The headline is 500 million free kits for Americans. The fine print however states that contracts with manufacturers have not been signed, a website to order these kits has not been developed yet and no plan on how many kits people can order and how long it will take to deliver them. Obamacare 2.0

  6. Why do the taxpayers pay for faucis security? He is a civil servant. Why is he scared? How much money has fauci made from the virus he paid china to create?

  7. I don't get why you almost never see Dr. Fauci wearing a face mask. It seems to me that if there were one person on the planet who could really have an impact, it would be him. It makes no sense to me. He should be wearing one in his sleep! The same goes for so many of the TV reporters. They would send the strongest message. Instead, they are sending a constant mixed message. And, you can see the results. Are they above it all?

  8. I think at this point everyone will get omicron regardless of your vax status. This is how the pandemic ends when everyone has acquired natural immunity. This time let’s really protect the elderly and vulnerable but for everyone else it’s over. Omicron seems to be more transmissible but hopefully less deadly which is how many smart people predicted it would mutate. Lockdowns would only delay the inevitable. Also let’s roll out the 2 new antivirals and offer them to anyone experiencing severe symptoms.

  9. Everyone get your Booster and stay masked. This will never end until you STOP COMPLYING!

    I don’t believe anything that comes out of Fauci mouth because he’s benefiting off the vaccines.
