Dr. Fauci on Monday walked back his comments on Christmas after public backlash.
Fauci on Sunday was asked if Christmas gatherings need to be canceled during an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“But can we gather for Christmas, or it’s just too soon to tell?” Face the Nation host Margaret Brennan asked Fauci.
“It’s just too soon to tell,” Fauci replied.
King Fauci believes he has the right to tell Americans if they can gather for the holidays.
On Monday Fauci clarified his statement and claimed the rubes took his Christmas comments out of context.
“I also said something over the weekend that was taken completely out of context. I was asked what could we predict for this winter, for like December and Christmas,” Fauci said Monday on CNN. “I said we don’t know because we’ve seen slopes that went down and then came back up.”
“I will be spending Christmas with my family. I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people, who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas with your family,” Fauci said. “The way all of the other disinformation goes around, you say something talking about a landmark of a time, and it gets misinterpreted that I’m saying you can’t spend family Christmas time, which is nonsense. You can.”
