**Biden’s Choice for New CDC Director: A Fauci Fangirl with a Questionable Record**
President Joe Biden is expected to nominate Mandy Cohen, the former North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary, as the new director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Her affinity for Dr. Fauci and her questionable track record, however, raise concerns for conservatives.
Cohen, who has a history with the Obama administration, previously served in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. This potential appointment comes as current CDC director, Rochelle Walensky, prepares to step down at the end of June. Walensky’s own journey with COVID-19 proved to be a puzzling saga of flip-flopping test results and excessive reliance on the Paxlovid drug.
During the pandemic, Cohen expressed her admiration for Dr. Anthony Fauci by donning a face mask featuring his image. In a tweet posted in August 2020, she encouraged others to join her in “masking up” every time they left their homes, claiming face coverings to be essential for slowing the spread of COVID-19.
Biden praised Walensky’s tenure, saying that she leaves the CDC a stronger institution, better equipped to confront health threats and protect Americans. He credited her with saving lives, thanks to her unwavering focus on the health of every American.
**Cohen’s Appointment: Another Liberal Ploy to Cement Control Over Healthcare**
The nomination of Mandy Cohen as the next CDC director demonstrates yet another example of Biden’s commitment to perpetuating liberal ideologies within the realm of healthcare. Cohen’s overt admiration for Dr. Fauci and her questionable past threaten to hinder the progress and credibility of the CDC in its critical mission to protect public health.
