- Editor’s note: Fauci previously said on July 18, 2022 he would step down by the end of Biden’s first term, so today’s announcement has been expedited in just 35 days.
- Fauci, 81, is two years older than Biden.
- This country was not well-served with the same Director of National Institutes of Allergies and infectious Diseases (NIAID) for the past 38 years, which was way too long for any individual to be in that post.
- Don’t expect much to change at the NIH, for his replacement will also be a Big Pharma approved sycophant.
