During an interview with MSNBC, Dr. Anthony Fauci completely embarrassed himself when he tried explaining how Texas’ COVID cases continue to decline despite ignoring his advice.
“It just is inexplicable why you would want to pull back now,” Fauci said last month while reacting to Texas’ decision to open up.
It has been a whole month later since Fauci made these comments and Texas’ COVID cases continue to decline.
“It can be confusing, because … often you have to wait a few weeks before you see the effect … I’m not really quite sure,” Fauci tried to explain. “It could be they’re doing things outdoors.”

Fauci clearly doesn’t know what he is talking about and the state of Texas is making it completely clear that they will not be following his faulty advice.
On Monday, Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order shutting down Democrats’ “vaccine passports,” stating that a passport for COVID would be infringing on citizen’s rights.
“Every day, Texans are returning to normal life as more people get the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. But, as I’ve said all along, these vaccines are always voluntary and never forced,” Abbott said of his executive order.
“Government should not require any Texan to show proof of vaccination and reveal private health information just to go about their daily lives,” he continued. “That is why I have issued an executive order that prohibits government-mandated vaccine passports in Texas. We will continue to vaccinate more Texans and protect public health — and we will do so without treading on Texans’ personal freedoms.”
On Monday, the Texas Rangers launched their season home opener, selling over 38,000 tickets.
Check out what CNN reported:
The paid attendance at Monday’s game was 38,238, a figure which Rangers spokesperson John Blake described as a sellout. The stadium’s overall capacity is 40,518, according to Blake.
The Rangers are the only Major League Baseball team allowing full capacity seating at their ballpark, thanks in part to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott doing away with mask restrictions last month and allowing businesses to open at 100% capacity.
“It felt like it was my debut all over again. It was a good feeling to just have the crowd there cheering us on,” Rangers infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa said. “I think the introduction when I first came out early in the game, that was probably one of the coolest moments of my career to this date.”
