Americans respond to Fauci and Tapper cancelling Christmas: Come take it!

The liberal media continues to exploit White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci’s affinity for the limelight, but as often as he contradicts himself it’s fair to ask if anyone is still listening to the nation’s top infectious disease expert.

Fauci serves as a useful tool for people like CNN’s Jake Tapper to push the preferred political narrative, which apparently includes cancelling Christmas.


A number of Democratic leaders have already targeted Thanksgiving, daring to limit who may visit your home, how many visitors you may welcome and in some cases even how long they can stay, Tapper shifted his focus to the day the world celebrates the birth of Baby Jesus.

In response to Fauci talking about eventually being able to return to some sense of “normality” after a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available, Tapper chimed in, “So not until the second or third quarter until 2021. Christmas is probably not going to be possible.”

“Yeah,” Fauci replied. “I’m — well, you know, I think if we get most of the country vaccinated in the second, third quarter of the year and the vaccine continues to prove its efficacy and people adhere to those fundamental measures, I think we can start approaching the degree — it’s not going to be a light switch.”

Even with a vaccine, Fauci suggested masks and social distancing will not go away.

He also warned that deaths may almost double in “just the next four months,” as the CNN anchor suggested.

And with talk of another lockdown should Joe Biden find his way to the White House, Tapper set the stage by talking about regional lockdowns with state and local officials — see Democrats — issuing new stay-at-home orders.

“I think that likely will happen if we don’t turn around this surge,” Fauci said. “You’re right. We’re not getting a national lockdown, I think that’s very clear. But I think what we are going to start seeing in the local levels, be they governors or mayors or people at the local level, will do as you said, very surgical type of restrictions which are the function equivalent of a local lockdown but we were not going to have a national lock down.”

“If things really get bad and you put your foot on the pedal and, yet, still you have the surge, you may need to take the extra step you’re talking about,” he added.


One thing seems certain, according to the replies seen online, cancelling Christmas will be easier said than done.

Here’s a sampling of defiant responses from Twitter:
