Shawn Thew/Pool via AP In what may be the most hilariously timed interview, CNN+ streaming service show host Kasie Hunt teased an interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci just hours before the streaming service was canceled after only 22 days in operation. But the timing wasn’t the only entertaining thing about the Fauci announcement.
Hunt, who hosts the soon-to-be short-lived “The Source With Kasie Hunt,” boasted a huge interview with that seldom-interviewed, hermit-like, shy, and retiring “get” of the century, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the man who helped bring the world Covid.
On Twitter, Hunt enthused, “Today on #TheSourceKasie I spoke with Dr. Anthony Fauci about the mask court decision, vaccines for young children and what it’s like living as a hero to some and a villain to others. Hope you’ll watch @CNNplus.”
Response to her announcement was entertaining, to say the least.
David Freiheit, a Canadian attorney and YouTuber known as Viva Frei, asked Hunt: “Wow, how did it feel to be looking directly at science?”–a reference to the humble and retiring Fauci claiming to be science itself. Wow, how did it feel to be looking directly at science? — Viva Frei (@thevivafrei) April 21, 2022 There was concern about Dr. Fauci not wearing a mask after he complained about the end of mask mandates on public transportation. Why are they not wearing a mask? I am outraged! — Joshua Willis (@Joshdwillis82) April 21, 2022 But a closer look at the background of Fauci’s office shows that the octogenarian, wearing skinny jeans and coat and tie, suffers from a common Beltway ailment.
“Me-itis” occurs when a person is granted authority by government and wields the budget the size of a small country to, for example, buy viruses from far-flung labs.
It begins to so thoroughly overtake a person that it begins to manifest externally.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
