- Dr. Anthony Fauci revealed he’s had to hire additional security to protect his daughters from death threats.
- The White House health advisor claims he’s been receiving these threats in response to his advice on the coronavirus pandemic.
- We’ve failed Dr. Fauci – and one another too.
Dr. Anthony Fauci needs more security. Why? Because the White House health advisor and his daughters have received death threats.
These threats, he says, are coming from people who disagree with his response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Fauci Does Not Deserve This
By now, it’s evident Dr. Fauci and the Trump administration have vastly opposing views on the coronavirus pandemic.
While the former – a decorated scientist with a decades-long track record of public service – has remained consistent in his messaging, the latter has flip-flopped between “it’s a Democratic hoax” and “it will disappear” to blaming it all on China.
Trump, who needless to say is not a scientist, has repeatedly pushed Congress to slash funding to the CDC. His despicable behavior at the outset of the crisis left the United States ill-prepared to deal with the pandemic. His response to the ever-rising American death toll is to go on more taxpayer-funded golfing trips.

And his supporters respond to this disgraceful display of ineptitude by threatening Dr. Fauci and his children?
As the doctor told Sanjay Gupta:
The unseemingly things that crises bring out in the world, it brings out the best of people and the worst of people, and getting death threats to my family and harassing my daughters to the point where I have to get security — it’s amazing. I wouldn’t have imagined in my wildest dreams that people who object to things that are pure public health principles are so set against it and don’t like what you and I say, namely in the world of science, that they actually threaten you.
What is wrong with you people?
