Megyn Kelly shares pic of Fauci doll she found in store: ‘My friends, it’s worse than we thought’

Op-ed views and opinions expressed are solely those of the author.

In today’s polarizing times, it’s generally not hard to understand how the left feels about various public officials. When it comes to the “tolerant” progressive cabal, it’s either a hearty thumbs up or a demonstrative thumbs down.

And what can be more of a thumbs up than an action figure cut in one’s likeness?

Megyn Kelly, now an independent journalist with her own podcast, came across a collection of Democratic action figures in an Upper West Side store. Those featured included President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and U.S. Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. The late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was also represented.

And Dr. Anthony Fauci.

“My friends, it’s worse than we thought,” Kelly tweeted, along with an image of the Fauci doll — complete with a mask!

Kelly also shared an image of the action figures mentioned above:

Always eager to live up the hero status bestowed upon him by liberals, the nation’s leading expert on infectious diseases appeared on NBC’s Today Show on Wednesday to talk about Centers for Disease Control and Prevention summer camp guidelines.

NBC host Savannah Guthrie asked Fauci about the “excessive” guidelines that say children and vaccinated adults must wear masks outdoors at all times unless eating, drinking, or swimming.

“I wouldn’t call them excessive Savannah, but they certainly are conservative,” Fauci replied, with a chuckle. “And I think what you are going to start to see is really in real-time continually reevaluating that for its practicality. Because you’re right, people look at that and they say, ‘Well, is that being a little bit too far right now?’”

“We’ve been told, people have been preaching for a year, ‘follow the science’ — the science doesn’t suggest those CDC guidelines are too sensible for little kids outside in 90-degree heat running around with masks,” Guthrie followed up.

“You’re right, it looks a bit strict, a bit stringent, but that’s the reason why they keep looking at and trying to reevaluate — literally in real time — whether or not that’s the practical way to go,” Fauci said.

Of course, if he’s the hero many make him out to be, Fauci could use his influence to get the ridiculous guidelines changes.

As for Dr. Fauci being a “hero,” there really are people who feel this way:

On the other hand, there’s a strong contingent that feels different, with some seeing the adulation of Fauci and little more than “a cult.”

Here’s a sampling of some of those responses from Twitter:
