Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, has prayer candles with his own likeness on them inside of his home office, and he’s being berated online and on cable TV over it.
Hewitt, in an interview, noted that Fauci seems to have lost a great deal of trust with millions of Americans, and he asked, “Is there a point where you will say, ‘I do more harm than good because people don’t listen to me anymore,’ and step aside?”
“No. Absolutely, unequivocally no, Hugh. Sorry,” Fauci responded.
In a recent interview, those prayer candles were clearly seen on a shelf somewhere behind where the doctor frequently conducts remote interviews. In a segment on his show Monday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed them out while connecting the left’s COVID cult to the NAIAD director.
Carlson slammed the secular, Fauci-obsessed left-wing media, public health officials and Democratic voters for treating pandemic fear and public responses to it as a religion. He also hit at those same people for treating Fauci as that religion’s high priest.
“Tony Fauci is himself a devout member of the church of Tony Fauci. Now take a look at this still photo from Tony Fauci’s home office. Look in the back, on the bookshelf,” Carlson said, noting that the doctor has apparently bought into the cultural phenomenon he has become for millions of wayward Americans.
Visible from his home camera, prayer candles containing Fauci’s face were right out in the open inside of his private residence.
“Those are Tony Fauci prayer candles, prominently displayed inside Tony Fauci’s home,” Carlson said as he mocked the man whose self-admiration and apparent worship have driven so much of U.S. policy throughout the last year and a half. “Oh. At least he’s real. Tony Fauci isn’t just the high priest of Fauci-ism. He’s also a true believer himself.”
Twitter users were quick to mock Fauci over the candles, and they are available for sale on a number of websites.
