Proclamation is not being greeted warmly by those suffering under guidelines developed by Saint Fauci and his team.
Last month, just ahead of the Thanksgiving holidays as several states began spirit-crushing lockdowns, Dr. Anthony Fauci sat for an interview about the pandemic and said, “now is the time to do what you’re told.”
Despite his Scrooge-like opinions, the mayor of our nation’s capital has decided to proclaim Christmas Eve, “Dr. Anthony Fauci Day.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci got an early birthday present when D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser proclaimed Thursday, December 24, 2020, “Dr. Anthony S. Fauci Day” in the District.
Dr. Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a top U.S. advisor on COVID-19, turns 80 years old on Thursday.
“Dr. Fauci has been a hero to our nation during this incredibly difficult year, working tirelessly to save lives and guide our nation’s response to and recovery from the pandemic,” said Mayor Bowser.
In honor of Dr. Fauci's 80th birthday tomorrow, I proclaim Thursday, December 24, 2020, “Dr. Anthony S. Fauci Day” in Washington, DC.
We are incredibly proud to count Dr. Fauci among the many DC residents who are sacrificing so much to keep our communities healthy and safe. pic.twitter.com/UqvS4sebMf

Bowder insists the proclamation is merely a birthday homage:
“Dr. Fauci has been a shining light in dark times for the nation, promoting truth over fear and giving Americans hope in their government,” Bowser added.
The mayor encouraged Washington residents to join her in the spirit of wishing Fauci a happy birthday on Thursday.
The proclamation is not being greeted warmly by Americans who have suffered under the restrictions, lockdowns, and social-distancing guidelines developed by Fauci and his team.
American society has devolved to the quad at lunch in H.S. There is the inpenetrable "cool kid – circle jerk" bubble and then there are the rest of us schmucks.

To celebrate this day correctly, though, you have to put out a stream of arbitrary, contradictory info as to where & how to celebrate
First, say it's at the White House.
Then, outdoors on the mall.
Say it'll be catered, then suddenly announce it's potluck. Then catered again.

Hopefully, in 2021, all of us will have our happy birthdays…free of both the virus and Fauci’s rules.DONATE
