It would appear that Dr. Fauci is getting a bit nervous about the storm that is headed his way.
Fauci is now denying he had anything to do with school closings.
The problem... he is lying.
Then and Now
Fauci was being interviewed by ABC News’ Jonathan Karl.
When Karl asked him if it was a mistake to do the shutdowns, Fauci responded, “I don’t want to use the word ‘mistake,’ Jon, because if I do, it gets taken out of the context that you’re asking me the question on.
“We should realize, and have realized, that there will be deleterious collateral consequences when you do something like that.”
Karl then gives him an out, stating, “You’re not the head of a school board.”
"Was it a mistake...to see schools closed as long as they were?"

I won’t deny that Fauci had made statements saying that we need to do everything we can do keep schools open, but he DID advocate for them to be closed.
Here are just a few of the snippets on this front...
Fauci scolded @GovRonDeSantis for opening schools in fall20. And his constant caveats - schools can only open IF - gave unions & districts cover NOT to open. His refusal to acknowledge the harm to kids earlier this month, & now, his refusal to accept accountability is pathetic. https://t.co/r4T3ecUg4j pic.twitter.com/ZM83lAyLQ8

8/4/20 Fauci on schools:
"There may be some areas where the level of virus is so high that it would not be prudent to bring children back to school."
In clip, he endorses Zoom education & school closures in areas w/ COVID transmission. Fauci has never been for full reopening. pic.twitter.com/eORstr2Lf8

Unbelievable! Does Fauci NOT know that the Internet lives forever? HERE are the receipts:

As you can see, the man is blatantly lying, and has been throughout this pandemic.
He regularly played both sides against the middle, and he is going to pay for it once the GOP takes over Congress again.
