Retired Dr. Fauci has found a way to still make profits off his role as the world’s most famous doctor during the pandemic, and it will surely leave you feeling sick – not from any virus related illness, however! Keep watching to find out how this retired doctor found a new stream of income after leaving his post at the White House.
On Sunday, critics found out that the retired NIAID director – Anthony Fauci – is charging $100,000 for speaking engagements, despite being once the highest-paid federal government employee in the nation.
FOX News reports, a screenshot from the Leading Motivational Speakers Agency website, which lists Fauci as a “motivational” and “health care” keynote speaker with a price tag ranging from $50,000 to $100,000, was tweeted by Christina Pushaw, Ron DeSantis’ rapid response director.
The website describes Fauci as someone “who’s career warrants execution under immense pressure that can alter the course of human existence.”
“His work on domestic as well as global health issues has saved millions of lives. This high level of research, discovery and execution is amazing given the grave challenges he faces on a daily basis,” the agency writes.
On Twitter, Fauci’s critics accused him of inflating his self-worth while emphasizing his position as one of the most controversial figures of the pandemic.
Substack writer Jordan Schachtel tweeted, “Follow The Science Starting at 50k an hour”
Kingsley Cortes, a conservative influencer and Trump 2020 campaign staffer, quipped, “The grift that keeps on gifting”
Bitcoin and finance expert Saifedean Ammous tweeted, “Motivational? WTF is he motivating them to do? Triple mask? Gain of function?”
And NewsBusters’ Tim Graham replied, “Gotta replace the 400K federal salary”
Dr. Fauci’s recent move to charge an upwards fee of $100,000 for speaking engagements has rightfully been met with outrage and disbelief from the public. After being one of the highest-paid federal employees in the nation, people feel as though he is unrealistically taking advantage of his current position and continuing to profit off being one of the most controversial figures during the deadly pandemic. The fact that he can cash in on something so serious and personal to millions of people across the globe is sickening, and it appears to show that it’s all about the money to him.
