We all know that Flauci is notorious for flip-flops, and this is the most desperate one. Chief White House Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci wanted to backpedal like it was his job on Monday after getting backlash for saying it was very early to tell if the Americans could gather for Christmas.
He shared his first statement about the Christmas gathering on his appearance on Face The Nation on Sunday!

He claimed that his comments were taken out of context and were misinterpreted.
“You know, I also said something over the weekend that was taken completely out of context,” Fauci stated. “I was asked what we could predict for this winter, for like December and Christmas.”
“I mean, I say you hold off on that. I said we don’t know because we’ve seen slopes that went down and then came back up,” he added. “The best way to assure that we’ll be in good shape as we get into the winter would be to get more and more people vaccinated. That was misinterpreted as my saying we can’t spend Christmas with our families, which was absolutely not the case.”
Fauci stated that he would spend Christmas with his family, and vaccinated individuals should do the same.
“I will be spending Christmas with my family,” Fauci concluded. “I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas with your family. But … the way all of the other disinformation goes around, you say something talking about a landmark of a time, and it gets misinterpreted that I’m saying you can’t spend family Christmas time, which is nonsense. You can.”
Margaret Brennan asked Fauci whether the people could gather for the upcoming holiday.
“You know Margaret; it’s just too soon to tell,” Fauci replayed. “We’ve just got to concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we’re going to do at a particular time. Let’s focus like a laser on continuing to get those cases down. And we can do it by people getting vaccinated and also, in the situation where boosters are appropriate, to get people boosted.”
It was a swift backlash.
Fauci has lost all credibility with the American people.

I don’t think anyone is going to be listening to Scrooge Fauci. I know I won’t be. https://t.co/F5K9eW8KPH

It’s irresponsible to have this guy on news programs at this point. If he wants to live in a bubble for the rest of his life, that’s a problem for him and his therapist. Everyone else, especially those who are vaccinated, should not hesitate to get together with family/friends. https://t.co/SF28LiGd2b

Fauci, you have to control yourself while you are giving an interview. You’re very contradictory!
