D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is proving how woke she really is by usurping a Christian holy day to honor the nation’s leading infectious disease expert.
Continuing the Democrat worship of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the mayor of the nation’s capital city declared that Christmas Eve will now be known as “Dr. Anthony S. Fauci Day” in honor of the immunologist’s 80th birthday. The announcement on Wednesday set off an avalanche of reaction on social media where many recalled the coronavirus journey with Fauci’s advice this year.
Earlier this month, President Donald Trump signed an executive order giving federal employees a full day off on Christmas Eve, in a generous move like he has for the last two years, allowing them more time with family over the holiday. But Bowser’s spirit of generosity was aimed at deifying a career civil servant and Washington, D.C. resident.
“In honor of Dr. Fauci’s 80th birthday tomorrow, I proclaim Thursday, December 24, 2020, ‘Dr. Anthony S. Fauci Day’ in Washington, DC.,” the mayor tweeted on Wednesday, along with photos of Fauci with the proclamation in hand.

“We are incredibly proud to count Dr. Fauci among the many DC residents who are sacrificing so much to keep our communities healthy and safe,” Bowser added.
Fauci, who received his first dose of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine this week, has repeatedly discouraged Americans from traveling on Christmas and having in-person gatherings. He told CBS News that he will be following his own advice, something many hypocritical government leaders and officials have apparently failed to do in recent weeks.
“This will be the first Christmas Eve, Christmas since the birth of my daughters… the first time ever, that we haven’t had all three of them together with me on my birthday,” he said. “It’s a little bit sad. But we are looking forward to next year when all three of us will be back together again.”
“The situation of not wanting to travel and trying to abide by the public recommendations that I myself are giving to the American public — to avoid travel and to avoid congregate settings,” Fauci told Politico.
“So I’m going to spend it in a quiet dinner with my wife in my home, and Zoom in my daughters, who are in three separate cities — San Francisco, New Orleans and Boston. So we’re going to have a quiet dinner, we’re going to sort of celebrate me and toast me with a little prosecco through Zoom,” he added. “That’s not optimal, but it’s better than nothing.”
At least he will have an entire city glorifying him while he sits at home collecting a federal paycheck.
“That’s fantastic!” MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow tweeted in response to Bowser’s announcement.
Bowser’s announcement won plenty of applause from those who already see the infectious disease expert as a hero. She followed up by asking for retweets to celebrate the man “for his tireless work to support and protect his neighbors and his fellow Americans.”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson gave a reality check to “Fauci Day,” calling out D.C. as “the Rome of spiritual narcissism.”
“In Washington, human power is worshiped as the living god. You will see temples to human power throughout the city as well as smaller shrines to its saints,” he said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday.
“The latest holy man to be beatified if there is a diminutive federal bureaucrat called Tony Fauci. Fauci is the high priest of the covid cult, a paper mask is his sacred garment, cable television is his pulpit.”

“A holy day indeed, and they tell you the secular world isn’t reverent, it certainly is,” he added after a mocking round of video clips.
Plenty of Twitter users joined Carlson with their own incredulous reactions to Bowser’s announcement.
These weirdos are one step away from deifying this goofy bureaucrat.

The guy who at first said not to wear masks then said actually wear them? Pass.

Hope he treats himself to a nice dinner at one of DC’s many fine indoor dining establishments, which you have thoughtfully kept open

This is vile. Christmas is about CHRIST, not any other person.
And especially not this guy!
