Walensky throws cold water on Fauci’s doomsaying about packed stadiums watching sports events

The doomsaying of Dr. Anthony S. Fauci has been undercut by an unusual source when Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky threw cold water on the idea that large crowds of fans in attendance at outdoor stadiums are superspreader events.

Dr. Walensky was put on the spot by host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” over whether the crowds at sporting events who are packed closely together without social distancing and in most cases, not wearing masks along with a corresponding rise in COVID cases in local areas was an indication that the fear has been overstated.

During her appearance, which was primarily to discuss the CDC’s greenlighting of the mixing of vaccines for the booster shots that the Biden administration has been pimping, the discussion took a turn into the direction of the games and those who are attending them.

“You know, there’s a lot of good sports on TV these days and if you watch sports whether its football games in stadiums or playoffs in baseball,” Wallace said as pictures of packed stadiums were displayed, “You see hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of people all packed together, not a mask in sight.”

“I understand it’s outdoors but what does it tell you that there have not been spikes in most of these communities when you have people crowded into football or baseball stadiums?” He asked.

Walensky responded, “We would still encourage people who are unvaccinated to wear a mask in those situations,” she said, as she defended the administration’s fetishization of masks, “but given that these games are outdoors, that tends to be a much safer environment.”

The CDC director’s words were in contradiction with those of Fauci who has become the public face of COVID and is a constant fixture in the media despite his constant shifting of the goalposts and conflicting messages that have caused much confusion.

In early September, Fauci, who is also the nation’s preeminent killjoy, appeared on CNN where he expressed his disapproval of the crowds at college football games.

“I don’t think it’s smart,” Fauci said of people having fun.

But the wave of pestilence predicted by Fauci never materialized, just as his ominous warnings of mass infections during last year’s holiday season were similarly proven to be wrong.

The career bureaucrat’s false prognostication over stadium superspreaders was fact-checked by even normally friendly media outlets like NBC.

Fauci’s latest fumble was also given attention by Clay Travis of Outkick, a frequent critic of the man who has been entrenched at the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since Ronald Reagan’s first term in the White House.

Fauci, who is currently taking fire over the funding of heinous and cruel medical experiments on beagle puppies that effectively make him a dog torturer, will continue to add to the total of his impressive list of inaccurate projections but Joe Biden’s top medical adviser will never be held accountable for the damage that he has done or will do in the coming months.
