As if Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Santa stunt wasn’t bad enough …
Full-time celebrity and media darling Dr. Anthony Fauci, technically the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has told children that he personally visited Santa Clause to vaccinate him from the coronavirus.
Appearing on CNN’s Sesame Street “town hall” Saturday, Fauci was tasked with answering questions from kids who were concerned about the coronavirus.
Questions ranged from whether the kids could hug their grandmothers to how Santa was holding up and whether the virus would prevent him from delivering gifts.
“Well, I have to say I took care of that for you, because I was worried that you’d all be upset. So what I did a little while ago, I took a trip up there to the North Pole. I went there, and I vaccinated Santa Claus myself,” Fauci replied to the latter question.
“I measured his level of immunity, and he is good to go. He can come down the chimney. He can leave the presents. He can leave and you have nothing to worry about. Santa Claus is good to go.”
Well, isn’t that nice …

Santa Claus will be coming to town this year, Dr. Anthony Fauci says.

The segment did not please viewers. Some accused CNN of pushing “propaganda,” while others aimed ire at Fauci for making the story of Santa Clause about himself.

This sort of propaganda should be illegal

Cool that you would try to insert yourself into the folklore surrounding a man that knows all, sees all, can manipulate time and space, was blessed by Mother Nature and Father Time, is immune to literally every and anything, and rewards good children around the world with toys.

I have a problem with this. Given the state of divide in this country regarding vaccination… saying you personally vaccinated a fictional character is only adding to the resolve of many not to vaccinate. You need to be seen as an authority figure not a dude playing cute.

Pretending Santa clause was vaccinated to kids is not cool!!!!! Whoever thinks this is normal is insane.

Dr. Fauci shouldn’t be using Santa for his vaccine propaganda.

Of course, the clip scene above was just the tip of the iceberg.
Asked about hugging grandma, he suggested that doing so is only OK if grandma lives with the kids. Otherwise, if she lives elsewhere, it’s a no go.
“If you are with that person in the house every day, all the time, there’s really not a problem. We’re concerned about traveling. When people come from a far distance, they’re in an airport or in the train station, and then you come into the house, you want to be careful about that. I know it’s tough. You want to hug the ones you love, but you have to be careful,” he replied.
He also warned that this rule applies even if grandma has been vaccinated.
“Well, if your grandparent gets it, you still need to be careful and wear a mask because until we get this blanket of protection over everyone, you can’t be absolutely certain that there isn’t virus there,” he said.

After answering the question about grandma, Fauci then told the kids that the government plans to begin vaccinating them in about a month or two.
“So the reason why you’re not hearing about our vaccinating children right now is because we want to wait a month or two. We’re looking at January, we’re going to start some trials in children,”he said.
“We’ll start with children who are a bit older and work our way down so that hopefully within a few months we’ll be able to tell children, what I know we’ll be able to say, the vaccine is safe and effective in you, and we’re anxious to get you vaccinated. So just hang in there a couple of more months, and we’ll be in good shape.”
He even described what the vaccine shot will feel like.
“The vaccine shot is in the arm. It’s a pinch, but the pinch lasts really a short time, literally in seconds. And I’ll bet you that after you get vaccinated, when vaccines become available for children, you’re going to say, you know, it wasn’t that bad at all. I’ll guarantee,” he said.
