Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, admitted today that “public health officials misled the public about the effectiveness of masks” because they were worried about shortages for health professionals:

So, will they all be fired? They could have told people the truth and everyone would have worn bandanas or some other homemade mask. This should be a big deal:
Some states’ requirements that face masks be worn in public may have led to hundreds of thousands of fewer coronavirus cases than there would have been without the mandates, according to a new study.https://t.co/EqhJBZxo8H

So, what else is he lying about for our own good? We didn’t hear any major criticisms after two-plus weeks of protests and looting:

It’s too late. If it were really a big deal, he should have loudly and repeatedly spoken out last week. I will never take him seriously again.

Mass protests are OK, but baseball isn’t?
Dr. Anthony Fauci believes MLB would be wise to end a potential 2020 season in September before the coronavirus risk rises with the cold in October. https://t.co/SE2asu8TwT

And football is OK this fall, but baseball isn’t?
Here is something I don’t quite understand. If Dr. Fauci is saying that MLB should try to avoid playing in late October and November, why would he be okay with the NFL being played into December? What’s different? https://t.co/KYie6JR4tX

He really is all over the place even if Dems won’t admit it.
