Dr. Fauci announced Monday that he is stepping down as Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and as chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden in December, but said he's not retiring.

NBC news reports, "While I am moving on from my current positions, I am not retiring," Fauci said in a statement. "After more than 50 years of government service, I plan to pursue the next phase of my career while I still have so much energy and passion for my field."

Dr. Fauci spent a lifetime protecting the US from infectious disease, but unfortunately then came the cockwobbler.

As Trump continually failed in 2020 to help the country when it needed it most, the MAGA-led GOP made Dr. Fauci their scapegoat to shield Donald Trump's inhumane actions (like telling his followers to drink bleach as a cure) during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As soon as the news broke on Dr. Fauci, the wingnuts came hard and fast.

Fox News host Pete Hegseth said Dr, Fauci is "going out at the bottom -- no one trusts him --he's still trying to cover up for a communist Chinese..."

The only people who don't trust Dr. Fauci are the Steve Bannon contingent of Christian nationalists and those Republicans who tried to revoke the electoral college votes on January 6 at the US Capitol to keep the incomprehensible jizztrumpet in power.

What a guy.

And then their predictable and dishonest avalanche of scorn rained down on Twitter.

These creeps have no shame.

As a palate cleanser, here's Rachel Maddow's interview with Fauci himself Monday night:
