Fauci Criticized for Going Maskless at Party Before Telling Americans to Avoid NYE Parties

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Chief White House medical advisor and longtime director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, is facing scrutiny over his apparently selective use of a mask at a D.C. area party this month as he urges Americans to avoid large parties this New Year’s Eve.

Fauci, as Just the News reports, told CNN’s Kaitlan Collins this week that this is not the year to gather for New Year’s Eve unless it is with close, vaccinated and boosted family members.

“I would stay away from that,” Fauci said. “I have been telling people consistently that if you’re vaccinated and boosted, and you have a family setting – in the home with family and relatives – but when you’re talking about a New Year’s Eve party, we have 30, 40, 50 people celebrating you do not know the status of the vaccination, I would recommend strongly stay away from that this year. There will be other years to do that, but not this year.”

Last month, Fauci was seen maskless at an indoor party for Jonathan Karl’s book, “Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show,” despite there being a mask policy in place in Washington D.C. at the time.

While party attendees were required to show vaccination, the public health official nonetheless received attention for periodically going without a mask, only putting it on around people he didn’t know.

“As gawkers tried to snap pictures of him indoors not wearing a mask, America’s doc would put it on and take it off depending on whom he was around,” Politico reported at the time.

The outlet noted that Sally Quinn, who has known Fauci for decades and modeled a character in one of her erotic novels after him, said she told him he seemed “ambivalent” about his mask since no one else was wearing one.

“He said, ‘I just decided that if anyone came up that I didn’t know, I would put my mask on,’” she told Politico.

“He was being safe,” she added. “He knew everyone was vaccinated. If it was someone we knew, he would trust them, and if it was somebody else, he didn’t.”
