Hypocrisy Alert: On TV Fauci Wants ‘trusted messengers not government officials like myself’ to Promote Vaccines

President Biden’s chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci hit the Sunday morning news programs to discuss COVID-19 and vaccines.

Fauci appeared on ABC News’ “This Week,” CNN’s “State of the Union,” and CBS News’ “Face the Nation.”

On CNN, Fauci responded to a video clip of a discussion about COVID-19 vaccines at CPAC where the crowd cheered that the government failed to get ninety percent vaccination rates.

Fauci called it “horrifying.”

On ABC News, Fauci expressed concerns about vaccine politics.

From the ABC News transcript Fauci said:

One of the ways to do that is to get trusted messengers without any political ideology differences out there — that could be clergy, that could be trusted messengers in the community, that could be your family physician — to get people to put aside this political issue and say, what am I going to be able to do for my own safety and for that of my family?

We have got to get away from the divisiveness that has really been a problem right from the very beginning with this outbreak.

Fauci expressed concern about the state of vaccinations on “Face the Nation.”

Fauci again urged for “trusted messengers” to promote vaccines.

Yes, there is a big difference in vaccination rates between Republicans and Democrats and Fauci is correct about having the right messengers.

Ironically, Fauci is part of the problem he described because many Republicans view him as a polarizing political figure.

Too many have Fauci fatigue but the Biden White House continues to put him in the national spotlight.

Fauci needs to follow his own advice and retreat from TV interviews because he is not trusted.
