We learned on Tuesday that even after America fully returns to normal, we will be left with yet another unpleasant side effect of the pandemic: more of Anthony Fauci’s face on our screens and pages, this time backed by the communist sympathizers at Disney.
The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, following in the footsteps of scandal-ridden New York Gov.

What a joke.
