White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci has “touched all Americans’ lives with his work,” President Joe Biden said Monday – but, not everyone says that’s a good thing.

“Whether you’ve met him personally or not, he has touched all Americans’ lives with his work,” Pres. Biden said in a statement reacting to Fauci’s announcement that he will retire in December from his positions as Biden's chief medical director, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation.

Indeed, Dr. Fauci did affect the lives of all Americans – but, he did so by presiding over the “greatest debacle in public health history,” former White House Coronavirus Adviser and current Hoover Institution Senior Fellow Dr. Scott Atlas says.

In an appearance Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Dr. Atlas noted the harm done to Americans by the lockdowns and school closures Dr. Fauci recommended, as well as by the NIH’s failure to help make “already-approved, low-cost” anti-coronavirus drugs available:

“His legacy is presiding over the greatest debacle in public health history, because his recommendations were implemented – and those implementations of the implementation of the lock downs and the school closures that he recommended, along with his underling Dr. Birx, failed. They failed by the data to stop the spread of the infection. They failed to stop the known vulnerable from dying, and inflicted enormous harms. They spared the affluent and the elites at the sacrifice of the poor minorities and our children. 

“The sinful and long-lasting damage to our children is one of his legacies, because those policies of masking, isolating, and quarantining healthy children introduced massive fear in them, damaged them to make them think that they’re vectors of disease and everyone is in danger from them. 

“We haven't even seen the tip of the iceberg of that damage, but we’ve already seen skyrocketing self-harm visits by teenagers, suicidal ideations, mental illness skyrocketing, child abuse going unreported, massive surges in childhood obesity, a public health problem, serious learning losses, particularly among the poor and low income families – again, sparing the affluent.

“He also presided over the NIH's total failure to conduct the necessary trials on already approved low-cost drugs, along with his friend and associate, Francis Collins, as you mentioned.”

Dr. Atlas is not alone in his assessment of the unprecedented harm Fauci inflicted on the American people during the coronavirus pandemic.

"Fauci has, indeed, ‘touched all Americans' lives with his work’ -- perhaps more than any unelected federal bureaucrat in American history,” Marc Morano, author of the new book, The Great Reset: Global Elites and the Permanent Lockdown, which profiles Fauci's role in trying to establish a "new normal," told

“Fauci's ‘work’ was instrumental in masking and cancelling your kids’ schools and sporting events, shutting churches down, cancelling weddings and funerals, stay-at-home orders, curfews, small and independent businesses closures, vaccine mandates, economic calamity, deferred medical treatments, mental health crisis and spikes in addiction.

“Fauci helped usher in the new ABNORMAL. Dr. Fauci, you will NOT be missed."

Likewise, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) posted a Twitter thread Tuesday, listing how Fauci hurt Americans by failing to acknowledge the ineffectiveness of standard cloth masks, that the elderly are more at risk than are children, and that some coronavirus medications have side effects:

“He denied the existence of natural immunity. He spoke of droplets to avoid acknowledging the size of the virus was too small to be stopped by the filters of loose fitting cloth masks.”

“The vaccine trials were designed NOT to show the vaccines didn’t prevent infection or spread, but he spoke as if they did. He ignored harm caused by locking down people - delayed cancer screenings, untreated diabetes, un-filled prescriptions, mental health (suicides), etc.”

“He ignored and still ignores all side effects of the novel mRNA vaccines. The policies he advanced never properly acknowledged that the elderly had exponentially more risk than children. He cared not about the stunted social and educational development of children.”

“He downplayed early treatments and promoted late stage expensive pharmaceuticals while ignoring their side effects. Fauci isn’t science, he’s a snake oil salesman trying to quietly ride his wagon out of town before the people hold him accountable for his fraud.”
