Fauci berates mass outdoor gathering in South Dakota, but gives Obama’s birthday bash a pass

Social media users piled on to Dr. Anthony Fauci for what many felt was a double standard when it comes to what type of gatherings he criticizes.

“No comment from St. Fauci on Obama’s soirée last night with a few hundred of his closest friends – or how about Lollapalooza last week in Chicago,” one social media user said in reaction to Fauci’s comments critical of the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. “Or, I guess it’s SELECTIVE festivities, because the virus knows, and only attacks those who fit the Dems’ narrative.”

The remarks came in response to Fauci’s comments expressing concern about South Dakota’s upcoming Sturgis Motorcycle Rally on Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” with host Chuck Todd speculating the rally could become a “super spreader” event.

“I’m very concerned, Chuck, that we’re going to see another surge related to that rally,” Fauci said.

Fauci admitted that it was “understandable” that people “want to do the kind of things they want to do,” though he called on rallygoers to consider their impact on the spread of COVID-19.

“There comes a time when you’re dealing with a public health crisis, that could involve you, your family, and everyone else that something supersedes that need to do exactly what you want to do,” Fauci said. – READ MORE
