Joe Biden said his first move as President would be to retain Dr. Anthony Fauci as his chief medical advisor.
That turned out to be a disaster.
And Dr. Fauci went on Fox News and delivered Joe Biden some seriously bad news.
During the media coverage of the build up to the Super Bowl telecast, many Americans marveled at how the state of Florida was back to living normal life.
Bars and restaurants were crowded and Floridians did not have to wear masks.
Dr. Fauci’s answer was bad news for Joe Biden’s chances to continue working with a Democrat majority because Fauci moved the goal posts once again on ending the lockdowns by claiming shutdowns and mask mandates must be in place until the virus is “no longer a threat” and cases are at practically zero.
“That will really be dependent upon how we get the level of the virus in the community down. If we can get — and I have used this as an estimate, it is not definitive — if we can get 70 to 85 percent of the population vaccinated, and get to what we would hope would be to a degree of herd immunity which really is an umbrella or a veil of protection… where the level of virus is so low it’s not a threat at all, then at that point, you can start thinking in terms of not having to have a uniform wearing of masks,” Dr. Fauci added.
Baier asked when that would be and Fauci claimed if everything went perfectly with the vaccine, the lockdowns will last to the late fall of 2021.
“But we’re certainly not near there yet,” Dr. Fauci added. “When do I think that would occur? It’s very difficult to predict, Bret, but if everything falls into the right place and we get this under control, it is conceivable that you might be able to pull back a bit on some of the public health measures as we get into the late fall of this year. But there’s no guarantee of that.”
And it’s important to note that Fauci wasn’t even promising an end to the lockdowns and mask mandates by the end of 2021.
Dr. Fauci was saying that some of the measures could be pulled back—but not eliminated—if Biden’s disastrous vaccination program leads to 85 percent of Americans getting immunity.
The plan to keep Americans living under lockdown until at least the end of 2021 will kill any chance of a massive economic rebound and poison the political environment for Democrats heading into the 2022 midterm elections.
