White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci apparently has several articles of memorabilia centering around his image, including a prayer candle that depicts him as a religious figure.
Fox host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson pointed out the candles on Fauci’s bookshelf Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“Those are Tony Fauci prayer candles, prominently displayed inside Tony Fauci’s home,” Carlson said, zooming in on candles depicting the medical adviser as a religious figure displayed in Fauci’s home.
“Fauci isn’t just the high priest of Fauciism, he’s also a true believer himself,” Carlson concluded.
Carlson also played a MSNBC interview in which Fauci said you’re attacking science if you attack “Dr. Antony Fauci.”
“Well there it was, the third person self reference,” Carlson said.
Carlson played several clips in which several network analysts accuse Fox News and Republicans of making him a “boogeyman,” and sarcastically refer to Fauci as a “god.” (RELATED: Fauci Tells Americans To Enjoy ‘Normal’ Christmas After Floating COVID Cancellation)
“Sacred Christian observance canceled until further notice from Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, M.D.,” Carlson said regarding Fauci’s comments, stating that it was akin to declaring “the ancient Christian calendar null and void.”
Fauci had recently claimed that illegal immigrants were not behind new COVID-19 surges at the southern border, stating that the problem was “within our own country” while adding immigrants were “not the driving force of this.”
The infectious disease expert also claimed in August that COVID-19 would be under control by spring of 2022 if most Americans are vaccinated by that time, pushing support for a vaccine mandate.
