Fauci went on to say that due to the harsh criticism he has received, he and his family have received death threats.
“I mean, [my family] don’t appreciate that I constantly receive death threats. Someone somewhere thinks they want to hurt me and/or my family every time someone stands up and spews gibberish which is misinformation, deception and blatant lies,” Fauci said. .
This part, he continued, “is extremely unfortunate. The rest of what they say is pure madness. But when people take it seriously and turn against you and your family, it has a detrimental impact.
Fauci’s critics say that during the early stages of the pandemic, he misled people about masks and vaccinations by making frequent U-turns.
