Fauci’s Not Feeling Very Festive…Hear His Thoughts on Gathering for Christmas

Elena Shashkina/

We didn’t really expect Dr. Fauci to suddenly be the bearer of good news. However, we had hoped that he would have at least chosen not to be Scrooge McDuck again.

People are getting vaccinated. They’re wearing masks when they absolutely have to. The reality is that people are being responsible. And, at least in GOP states, the pandemic numbers are dropping.

Well, Dr. Fauci can’t help but be the bearer of bad news. He’s not going to say whether we can gather for Christmas or not. We all remember what happened last year – he told everyone not to gather. Then, the biggest gatherings were done by the liberals in Congress.

So, while they can have giant gatherings of 100 or more, the chief medical advisor wants to say that we can’t meet with extended family to exchange a few gifts. Bah humbug.

Perhaps Dr. Fauci is out of touch with reality. We’re already into October. Christmas is right around the corner. Many people have been planning their holiday gatherings for months. Plane tickets have been purchased. Hotels have been booked. Families have already decided whether they’re going to gather for Christmas, regardless of what Scrooge has to say about the matter.

On CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Fauci appeared to talk about Christmas plans. Host Margaret Brennan thought she’d ask about the possibility of gathering. “It’s just too soon to tell.”

He might not want to hear it, but too many people listened to his advice last year only to feel as though the Grinch did, in fact, steal Christmas. No one wants to go through that for a second holiday season. So, they’re going to make their plans. Especially if they’ve already had COVID or they are vaccinated, they’re going to plan. And, you know what? Most people will be safe. They have the promised level of immunity because they’re following science, not Fauci.

Dr. Fauci goes on to share with Brennan that “We just gotta concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down, and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we’re going to do at a particular time.”

He’s so out of touch with reality that he doesn’t even know that the holidays are less than 100 days away. The way that he’s talking, you’d think we’re asking about making summer plans.

As for getting the numbers down…perhaps he should knock on Kamala Harris’ door and find out how closing the border is going. After all, one of the reasons why the COVID numbers are up is because there are so many unvaccinated migrants shoving their way into the southern border. Perhaps if we vaccinated them, we wouldn’t be in this mess. Oh, but we’re not supposed to talk about that.

We’ve given up enough freedoms over the past year and a half. And, we’re not about to give up another holiday. There’s nothing more frustrating than following the rules only to find out that the liberals don’t follow them. They are the party of “rules for thee and not for me,” – and they have proven it tenfold since the start of the pandemic.

Fauci may not have made up his mind about whether we can gather for Christmas but the rest of us have. And, if you listen to enough of the chants at the stadiums around the country, you’ll hear just what voters have to think about Biden and his mandates, too.
