“Normality for Fauci means ‘the show is over’”
Mask fetishist Anthony Fauci said Sunday he sees it as entirely possible that everyone will have to keep wearing face coverings throughout the entirety of 2021 and into 2022.
Appearing on CNN, Fauci proclaimed that he would not be “comfortable” advising easing any restrictions until “the overwhelming majority in the population are vaccinated.”
When asked if “normality” would return soon, Fauci declared that “it depends on what you mean by normality.”
Dr. Fauci says that it's "possible" that Americans will be wearing masks in 2022.

The most he would offer was “I think we’re going to have a significant degree of normality beyond the terrible burden that all of us have been through over the last year.”
Fauci previously declared that until the vast majority of Americans take the vaccine, masks need to stay on and the restrictions need to remain.
His comments on masks have been all over the map throughout the pandemic, having originally said that “there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask,” and that they are little more than symbolic.
He then advised that two masks would be better than one, before walking back the comment entirely.
No surprise then regarding the reaction to his latest statements:
When this man talks, everything should be understood in the context that 2020 was the best year of Fauci's life. "Normality" to him means the show is over. https://t.co/ChyUlzK1xT

Schools and churches must remain closed until Fauci gets sick of daily national TV appearances and free steak dinners.

We won’t get to the “overwhelming majority” being vaccinated. A huge number of people don’t want a vaccine. That’s not advocating, it’s just stating fact. https://t.co/qj8WzUBoPg

I'm sorry, Fauci, but "hurry up and get vaccinated so that we can return to some degree of normalcy in 8-10 months maybe" is not going to cut it and if that's the best you can do, hire a fucking spokesperson to go on CNN and do a better job.
