Dr. Anthony Fauci is one of the most controversial public figures in America.
He flip-flopped on COVID guidelines and changed his position countless times during the pandemic.
But Anthony Fauci reached a new low with this one outrageous claim about Colin Powell.
Dr. Fauci assured the American people that it would only take “two weeks to slow the spread” when the coronavirus pandemic first started.
But over the past 18 months, Anthony Fauci changed his position multiple times on what it would take to end the pandemic and get back to normal living in America.
He went from promising “two weeks to slow the spread” to saying the pandemic won’t end until 90 percent of Americans are fully vaccinated for the coronavirus.
But Anthony Fauci recently stooped to a new low by claiming to speak for Colin Powell, who died on October 18 from COVID despite being fully vaccinated.
During an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Fauci was asked to respond to folks who say Powell’s death is proof that the coronavirus doesn’t work.
“First of all, it was very unfortunate. General Powell was truly a great, great American, and it’s very sad that he passed away,” began Fauci.
Fauci then tried to speak for Colin Powell from the grave, telling viewers that Powell would tell hesitant Americans to go get vaccinated.
“But, as he himself — I knew General Powell, an extraordinary man — he would tell you himself, go ahead and get vaccinated because it really is highly protective — his case was extremely unusual,” declared Fauci.
Fauci then offered an excuse as to why the vaccine wasn’t effective at preventing Powell’s death.
“Here’s a man who is in his mid-80s, who had a disease that makes your immune system highly compromised,” said Fauci. “He was on therapy that further compromises the immune system. So, he was at a much, much higher risk. I don’t think you should extrapolate that to people in general, even elderly people. He got vaccinated,” he added.
In conclusion, Fauci used Powell’s death as an opportunity to try to convince Americans of the necessity of taking the coronavirus booster shot.
“It would have been nice if he got the booster, but he didn’t get the opportunity to get the booster, but General Powell’s situation is really a bit unique with regard to the fact that he was significantly immunocompromised, which really changes the situation when you talk about the ability of a vaccine to protect you when your own immune system is significantly compromised, superimposed upon the fact that you are an elderly individual,” concluded Fauci.
The FDA is currently debating whether or not to change the definition of “fully vaccinated” to two weeks after receiving a third booster shot.
But Anthony Fauci’s eighteen months of lying and misleading the public are creating even more hesitation among Americans to get vaccinated.
