Americans outraged after photo portrays Dr. Fauci not social distancing, with mask around his chin

Looks like Dr. Fauci practices the "mask for thee, but not for me" philosophy

Americans reacted with outrage after a photo emerged of Dr. Anthony Fauci at the Major League Baseball (MLB) game opener, depicting him not social distancing and wearing his mask around his chin.

This comes after Democrats have shamed Americans into wearing masks, claiming they’re the only thing that will keep us safe from the “dreaded COVID pandemic.”

Why is it that Dr. Fauci, who is sitting right next to two people (no social distancing whatsoever) is wearing his mask protecting only his chin?

Not too long ago Dr. Fauci said that masks were basically a “security blanket” for nervous nelly’s and did nothing to actually keep people safe. You can watch the video below:

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

Mark Levin kicked off the criticism with this comment: “Looks like Dr. Fauci forget to actually use his face mask while watching the Kaepernickers playing baseball. I’m sure the media will question him about it. After all, as he says, we’re in this together and everyone needs to obey the science. H/T WTOP”

Even supporters of Fauci are wondering what the heck is going on…

“I have been generally supportive of Dr. Fauci, but I think it’s worth asking him about mask usage and how he personally uses one and under what circumstances. One of these photos is AP, one is USA Today.”

“Dr. Fauci demonstrating proper mask-wearing and social distancing techniques.”

“Wear a mask. Social Distance. Apparently those are rules Dr Fauci promotes but apparently doesn’t apply to himself.”

“Hmmm what’s wrong with this. Dr. Fauci. No mask on no social distancing. Do as I say not as I do. Hmmmm.”

“Not one more word to me about social distancing & masks. Not one.”

In light of these photos, it’s starting to look and feel very political to many people.

Not to mention, the warning on the mask boxes claims they don’t stop the spread of viruses.

Based on all of this, can you really blame people for questioning the motives behind the mask push?

Then, when he is not even remotely near anyone, he throws the first pitch like he follows his own info: far afield. Watch this:
