 I don't do Twitter, so I don't know, but PJMedia tells me that the hashtag #FireFauci was trending yesterday.  Here's the headline.

'Fire Fauci' Trends on Twitter as His Mixed Messages and Inconsistencies Finally Get Called Out

Here's the deal with Fauci.  I don't believe anything he says anymore, because if I wait a couple of hours, whatever he says will change.  I understand that what he is doing is not an exact science, but his understanding of it should not change on an hourly basis. 

But, he probably cannot be fired.  He's a government worker, and is probably so ensconced in the Civil Service that he'll be there until he retires.  But, we can choose to ignore him, or mock him, or even write blog posts about how utterly inconsistent he has been.  He loves the media adulation, and he wants to be relevant, and once this pandemic is over, he'll go back to being a faceless functionary.

The world will be a better place when people forget who Anthony Fauci is.

My guess is that he's a Senior Executive Officer, and therefore may not be protected by the regular civil service mechanisms.
