Representative Warren Davidson has introduced the ‘FIRED’ Act as Dr. Fauci’s mess-ups are drawing widespread criticism.
Amid the CDC’s updated mask guidelines and new information being revealed about the origins of the coronavirus, people are starting to question the credibility of our decision-makers throughout the pandemic — including the ever so praised by democrats Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Dr. Marty Makary, professor of health policy and management at Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health, said:
“The agency [CDC] has lost all credibility. They have been consistently delinquent, misrepresenting COVID risk levels. The public sees through the CDC’s flawed guidance on schools, travel and summer camps that use the guise of science. That’s why 52% of Americans no longer trust the CDC.”
Dr. Brett Giroir, the former White House Coronavirus Task Force testing expert and former Department of Health and Human Services assistant secretary, said the misunderstandings surrounding the CDC’s new guidelines come as a result of “awful communication and planning around the guidance” and a “terrible choice of words.”
“The real message is: If you are vaccinated, and not in a special group like the immunosuppressed, it is safe for you and for others around you for you to be without a mask indoors,” Giroir said. “But, if you are in areas of significant disease or in a high-risk circumstance and you are not vaccinated, it is still safer to wear a mask than not to wear one.”
Americans across the country have lost faith in Dr. Fauci by 42%.
That's what happens when you flip-flop on every issue regarding the pandemic and play games with the lives of Americans!

Fauci’s credibility is also declining, according to some experts.
Recently, Fauci said he is “not convinced” the virus developed naturally outside of the Chinese lab, as a report pointed out that three Wuhan lab workers were diagnosed with coronavirus symptoms right before the official outbreak in the country.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said Wednesday that a lab origin of COVID-19 is “one possibility.”
But back in the summer of 2020, Fauci told National Geographic:
“What’s out there now is very, very strongly leaning toward this could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated.”
And later on, he flip-flopped. When asked by a Politifact reporter if he was still sure that COVID-19 developed naturally, he said the following:
“No, actually no, I’m not convinced about that.”
Last year in March Fauci said, “there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask,” and in June 2020 he discouraged people from wearing masks in order to save them for health workers because “personal protective equipment… was in very short supply.”
Later on, in January 2021 Fauci said double-masking “makes common sense, it’s more effective.”

Giroir admitted this ever-changing messaging happens, in part, due to new information and data, but that there could have been much better transparency.
“The change in mask guidance was based on new information and data,” he said. “Of course, I had some issues back then because we did not know that masks did not work. We just did not have affirmative evidence that they did work, and we needed to conserve masks for health care workers. Fauci should have been upfront with that as well as the rest of the medical leadership on the task force, stating that we don’t know if they work instead of saying don’t wear them.”
Representative Guy Reschenthaler, a member of the House of Representative’s China Task Force, who just discovered that $1.1 million dollars in U.S. taxpayer money were sent to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, said he sees Fauci’s mixed messaging on mask mandates as worrying but feels it isn’t anything new.
“He has been wrong, intentionally deceptive, and inconsistent throughout this entire pandemic. A few examples of Fauci’s failures include: claiming there was very little risk to Americans in January of 2020, opposing President Trump’s China travel ban then crediting it with saving lives, and wrongly predicting an explosion of cases in Texas after Gov. Abbott lifted the state mask mandates,” he saud. “It is long past time for Dr. Fauci to stop talking to the American public. Fauci should resign or be fired immediately.”

Ohio Representative Warren Davidson proposed the “FIRED” (Fauci Incompetence Requires Early Dismissal) Act due to his never-ending flip-flops.
“Dr. Fauci is at odds with the CDC,” he said. “He has repeatedly put political science ahead of the science on COVID-19.”
Giroir, however, noted that Fauci has not flip-flopped in 2021.
“The current confusion is because the overall guidance from CDC is confusing, and it is obvious that the CDC changed guidance without briefing him extensively,” he added.
