When the White House’s senior medical advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, basically admitting on Tuesday that his decision to continue wearing a mask indoors even though he was fully vaccinated was actually “theater,” conservative commentators had something to say about it.
Fox News’ Brit Hume called on Fauci to say on Good Morning America that wearing masks indoors as a vaccinated person was not based on science.
But he swore it was no theater. https://t.co/bJ1sZNXnEX

Fauci admits wearing a mask after a full vaccination was “theater”.
Fauci admitted to ABC presenter George Stephanopoulos that he now feels “much more comfortable” when people see him inside without a mask.
“Before the CDC changed the recommendation, I didn’t want to look like I was giving mixed signals, but since I am a fully vaccinated person, the chance I will get infected indoors is extremely small.”

Fauci’s admission that he was involved in a public relations campaign was particularly conspicuous when he testified during a Senate hearing in mid-March when Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul said wearing face masks during full vaccination was nothing further than “theater”.
At the time, Fauci disagreed decidedly.

“Let me state that masks are no theater, masks protect,” argued Fauci at the time.
So it was theater that he denied under oath before the Congress. https://t.co/fKbKFsgTTE

Conservatives rightly pile on Fauci
Hume wasn’t the only one who remembered this delusion.
Conservative commentators are unloaded online.
“DR. Fauci admits he only wore masks for optics,” wrote conservative commentator Sharyl Attkisson.

Has anyone else noticed that immediately after Rand exposed Paul Fauci about the gain in functional research in Wuhan, the pandemic mandates were lifted?

The conservative writer Jordan Schachtel wrote: “Fauci never believed in the mystical powers of the mask. See what happens when the cameras turn off. He has adapted to changing political winds. “
“His first comment (that masks are a comfort and control mechanism) stayed his position the entire time,” he added.

The Kentucky Republican Party correctly noted: “Two months before the day after Dr. @ RandPaul Dr. Fauci acted “theater” and wore two masks “for the show” even though he was vaccinated. Dr. Fauci eventually admitted it was actually for the show. “
