It’s refreshing to finally hear the truth.
After months of being told that the Biden administration did not support vaccine mandates, his chief medical adviser Dr. Fauci finally broke down and revealed the truth.
“I have been of this opinion and remain of this opinion, that at a local level, yes, there should be vaccine mandates.” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on CNN.
“We’re talking about life-and-death situations, so yes there should be mandates. We’ve lost 600,000 Americans already, and we’re still losing more people.”
Fauci revealed his opinion after railing against conservatives at CPAC for speaking out against COVID fascism. The CNN hack asked Fauci to respond to a crowd of Republicans loudly cheering on the fact that Biden did not meet his Fourth of July goal of 90% vaccination rate.
Biden’s top doctor called the events “horrifying” and “hard to understand.”

What’s hard to understand is Fauci confusion over vaccine hesitancy and his insistence that is falls purely along party lines. Lest he forget, it was under President Trump’s administration that the vaccine was created, and while many of Trump’s supporters remain skeptical, it’s not because of politics alone. If that’s the case, then why does the highest level of skepticism exist in the African American community — group that largely votes Democrat — a dwindling fact that Trump is turning on its head.
The immunologist went on to say he believes mandates are not more mainstream because the FDA has not fully approved all of the vaccines. According to Fauci, Americans will begin supporting mandates once government drug regulators step it and put their stamp of approval on the vaccines. How does that make any sense?
“I think the hesitancy at the local level of doing mandates is because the vaccines have not been officially, fully approved, but people need to understand that the amount of data right now that shows a high degree of effectiveness and a high degree of safety is more than we’ve ever seen with emergency use authorization.”
A total of 48% of people in the U.S. have been fully vaccinated, while 55% have received at least one dose. The country has had a 59% uptick in cases over the last two weeks, with a 27% decline in deaths and a 5% jump in hospitalizations.
A new, highly contagious COVID-19 delta variant is present in all U.S. states and has quickly become the dominant strain in some parts of the country. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky on Thursday said the “rapid rise” of the variant “is troubling.”
