Fauci Boycotts White House Correspondents’ Dinner

I was hoping that this would never come back.

WASHINGTON — Dr. Anthony Fauci has decided not to attend the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on Saturday amid concerns about Covid, a senior administration official confirmed to NBC News.

 

Fauci, 81, President Joe Biden’s top Covid adviser and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told The New York Times on Tuesday that he decided not to go to the dinner “because of my individual assessment of my personal risk.” His decision was first reported by CNN.

Biden, 79, and first lady Jill Biden, 70, plan to attend the event at the Washington Hilton on Saturday, the first time the event has been held since 2019 because of the pandemic.

 

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday that the president will not be there for the dinner portion of the night’s festivities, and that he may wear a mask when he’s not giving remarks.

 

“Just like anything it’s a risk assessment and a decision he made on a personal basis,” she said.

Funny. Allowing people to make a personal decision about their COVID mitigation measures based on their personal risk assessment is exactly what many of us have been advocating for years. And isn’t this the same administration that is trying to force Americans to keep wearing masks while on public transportation?

    But, but, but, masks are safe! And vaccinations make COVID so hard to get and low risk for harm if you do get it. And everyone there is a Biden supporter so, of course, vaccinated!

    Or maybe this is getting into the election swing and Dems need to get covid back on their bandwagon…figuratively speaking.

  2. Tuerqas

    Or maybe since he admitted his relationship to the Chinese facility that spilled the virus, he is a bit of an anathema to the Dem elections this year and was quietly asked not to come.

  3. Tuerqas

    Or maybe he is as batshit power crazy as he has looked and he thinks the biggest splash he can make is to very publicly bow out because ‘COVID is still so dangerous!’

    Fauci’s “use by” date has come and gone. The manner in which he goes away doesn’t matter as long as he does go away.

  5. Tuerqas

    Ha! Unfortunately though Merlin, drug use by dates are largely fictitious. Most drugs last 10-15 years past ‘expiration’ and still be 90%+ effective. Some even become more potent. If Dems think they see a use, Fauci is not used up until he is dead. And they will pull out his skeleton if his death was caused by something they can fear market.

    Just another reason why the fake doctor Fauci is truly a fake.
    If he is masked and vaccinated, he has no reason to fear the virus,right? Even if he got the virus, he has almost nothing to fear. All according the fake doctor Fauci.
    And the media diva is refusing to mingle with his worshippers?
    Seems pretty strange to me.

    Yeah, Tuerqas is probably correct.

    They’re still trotting demented Joe Biden out there and pretending there’s nothing wrong with him. Hillary still gets occasional press time. I even saw Faux-Socialist Bernie on the evening news earlier this week. Fauxcahontas, too.

    Kamala, not so much lately. I hear she has the sniffles. It’s beginning to look like they’ll prop up the big guys’s corpse on stage before they let her anywhere near the throne. Eighty million plus votes, my ass.

    The ironic thing is that if Fauci hadn’t announced that he wasn’t attending, no one would have noticed. Not.a.single.person.
