Prominent conservative voices have reacted to the announcement that Dr. Anthony Fauci will be retiring in December; most are happy to see him go, but a few want to remind him he won’t escape the hearings.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) kept it short and not-so sweet: “Good riddance.”
“Fauci has resigned,” Rich tweeted to his hundreds of thousands of followers. “I’m guessing it’s so he has time to prepare with his lawyers for his appearance at the 2023 Nuremberg Code trials.” tweeted country star John Rich.
“It’s no coincidence that Dr. Fauci just announced that he will resign from the government in December, which is right after Republicans will take back the House and immediately plan oversight into our pandemic response and his funding of gain of function research at the Wuhan Lab,” Former White House Strategic Communications Director Mercedes Schlapp tweeted.
“Dr. Anthony Fauci, the US’s top infectious disease expert who has seeming been wrong about everything since the AIDS epidemic, says he will retire by the end of the year likely to avoid being questioned by a GOP controlled house on how he got everything so wrong for so long!” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted.
“Dr. Fauci announces he’s stepping down in December. Fauci’s running scared with Republicans taking control of the House, at minimum, next year. Fauci should face criminal charges for lying to congress about gain of function research and covid,” tweeted Clay Travis.
