Fauci says the United States is "out of the pandemic phase" and it's causing a hilarious backlash from public health officials who don't agree with him ๐Ÿ˜‚

You know the Democratic internal polls must be really, really bad when the White House is obviously pressuring Anthony Fauci to say this sort of thing:

The United States is out of the Covid-19 pandemic phase, said Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden's chief medical adviser and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

"We are certainly, right now, in this country, out of the pandemic phase," Fauci said on PBS NewsHour Tuesday.

"Namely, we don't have 900,000 new infections a day and tens and tens and tens of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands of deaths. We are at a low level right now. So, if you're saying are we out of the pandemic phase in this country? We are," he said.

Folks, you know and I know that Biden and Harris absolutely went to town on Fauci in order to make him go on live television and utter those words.

It must have been quite a sight to see.

Yet not everyone was happy with Fauci's pronouncement. CNN, for one, interjected a bit of pandemic commentary into its own coverage of his remarks:

But daily cases are still two times higher than they were for most of last summer.

New cases are ticking back up in most states, and hospitalizations have started to rise over the past week too.

Fewer people are dying of Covid-19 now than during most of the pandemic, but with more than 400 deaths a day, the past two months of Covid-19 have been more deadly than most recent flu seasons.

A wide variety of public health experts on Twitter, meanwhile, were none too pleased with his claims:

It's almost like these nice folks really, really want the "pandemic" to continue!

In any event, with the White House this desperate, I for one can't wait for those midterms!
