Many conservatives have been eagerly anticipating White House COVID-19 adviser Anthony Fauci’s retirement since he announced earlier this year that he would likely be retiring sooner rather than later.
Fauci engineered the United States’ disastrous Covid-19 response and many Republican politicians have made “Fire Fauci” a rallying cry.
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has been particularly harsh towards Fauci during Senate hearings where he questioned the shoddy science behind lockdowns and vaccine mandates as well as the origins of Covid-19.
Some have went further, such as Florida Rep. Anthony Sabatini, running for Congress in Florida, who said that Fauci should be criminally prosecuted.
Now, Fauci has finally announced when he will retire.
The Epoch Times Reports–
White House COVID-19 adviser Anthony Fauci revealed that after about five decades in the federal government, he’s planning on leaving his position by the end of President Joe Biden’s term.
“We’re in a pattern now. If somebody says, ‘You’ll leave when we don’t have COVID anymore,’ then I will be 105. I think we’re going to be living with this,” Fauci, 81, told Politico in an interview published on Monday morning in confirming he’s retiring at the end of Biden’s term in office, which is Jan. 21, 2025.
Fauci has been the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984. During the COVID-19, he became a household name when he became the face of the federal government’s COVID-19 pandemic response, often generating criticism from Republicans and conservatives about his generally dire predictions about the pandemic.
