Dr. Fauci, who has been criticizing President Trump’s campaign rallies and Thanksgiving dinners, failed to comment when asked if the “Women’s March” that took place over the weekend in D.C. was a spreader.
Thousands of women gathered in Washington, D.C. on Saturday as a protest to the nomination and confirmation of Judge Amy Coney-Barrett to the Supreme Court.
When asked by the Washington Examiner, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases didn’t give a comment.
Washington Examiner says:
Fauci made headlines Sunday for again condemning an event held at the White House last month when Trump announced the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
“When I saw that on TV, I said, ‘Oh my goodness. Nothing good can come out of that. That’s got to be a problem.’ And then, sure enough, it turned out to be a superspreader event,” Fauci said this weekend of the White House event, which hosted about 150 people.
He added that he was “absolutely not” surprised that Trump contracted COVID-19 days after.
Dr. Fauci had also condemned Trump’s recent campaign rallies, including a campaign event in Florida, which he hosted.
“We know that that is asking for trouble, when you do that,” he said.
