MSNBC Holds Fauci’s Hand Through First Damage Control Interview Since ‘Email-Gate’
Having apparently seen his book pulled, as backlash builds against Dr. Anthony Fauci – as his ‘untouchableness’ becomes vulnerable amid an avalanche of inflammatory emails suggest the flip-flopping bureaucrat was anything but honest with the American people.
And so, the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases Director first appearance in public since his emails from the early days of COVID-19 were released to journalists was on MSNBC… of course.
As Summit News’ Paul Joseph Watson notes,despite released emails highlighting innumerable cases of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s bumbling response to the COVID-19 outbreak, an MSNBC host said the emails made Fauci “look good” during a pathetic softball interview.
Despite the fact that the emails reflect terribly on Fauci, Nicole Wallace used the first interview with Fauci since the scandal broke to obsequiously genuflect over his behavior.
“I wonder if you feel like you’re still making up some of that lost ground from many months under the last administration from not just no information but disinformation out there,” said Wallace.
Presumably she’s been hiding under a rock for the last 3 weeks as what the media and Fauci once called “disinformation,” the Wuhan lab leak theory, is now having to be treated with seriousness it deserves.
“The true mark of someone is that they look good even when their personal emails come out,” said Wallace, while laughing and smiling at Fauci. “So you pass a test very few of us would pass.”

Among other things, Fauci’s emails reveal;
How he decided to deliberately dismiss the Wuhan lab leak theory early on despite being warned by scientists that the virus looked “engineered”.
How he helped out and was thanked by Dr. Peter Daszak, someone with intimate ties to the Wuhan lab, for publicly discrediting the lab leak theory.
How he said face masks were useless because the virus could pass through them before going on to promote the use of face masks.
How Fauci committed perjury by denying he was involved with ‘gain of function’ research at the Wuhan lab, despite this being documented in the emails.
How Fauci responded to an email from a physicist who tried to warn him that China was engaged in a COVID cover-up with the words “too long for me to read.”
How Fauci conspired with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to control the narrative on COVID-19.
Of course, Wallace asked Fauci about absolutely none of the above.
And the media wonder why they are so reviled.
Wallace’s groveling opinion isn’t apparently shared by White House officials, who are reportedly preparing for Fauci to make a quiet exit in a bid to avoid further fallout from the emails.
Fauci also appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” this morning, and the adulation continued (with little to no actual journalistic pushback on any of his monologues).
As SaraACarter.com reports, first, Fauci was asked about the purported Wuhan lab leak.
While it is currently being investigated by U.S. officials, back in April of 2020, Fauci was emailing back and forth with National Institute of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins about how it was a “conspiracy theory.”
Now, the Chief Medical Advisor is walking back the email, telling host Willie Geist “we don’t know that for sure.”
Fauci re-admitted that he “can’t guarantee everything that is going on in the Wuhan lab” in the wake of criticism after a trove of his emails were published Tuesday.
“It was just trying to get the right information, to try and get the right data. What they didn’t seem to understand, I guess that it is understandable that they didn’t understand it, is that science is a dynamic process,”
But a manmade origin was “low on the list of what we thought the likelihood was.” On Thursday, he asked everyone to “keep an open mind” about COVID-19 origins.
Fauci also appeared on MSNBC’s Deadline Wednesday as his first appearance since the news broke. When asked about his emails then, he tried to look on the bright side.
“There’s no doubt that there are people out there who for one reason or another resent me for what I did in the last administration,” Fauci said.
But, at the very least, his emails were “not anti-Trump at all” he added.
“You look at my emails, I never said anything derogatory about President Donald Trump,” Fauci said.
We give the last word to Naomi Wolf…
We humbly suggest Dr. Wolf has had many other opportunities in recent years to be “ashamed of [her] profession.”
