One of the most maddening aspects of the pandemic was all the shutdown cheerleading from politicians and public officials who knew they weren’t going to be missing any paychecks. As a matter of fact, the Covid era seems to have brought in quite a windfall for some of the “experts”:

Wow, no wonder Fauci didn’t appear to care if people were losing jobs in droves because of shutdown/lockdown policies he supported, ostensibly in the name of “science.”

From the New York Post:

Dr. Anthony Fauci and his wife’s net worth grew by $5 million during the COVID-19 pandemic as thousands of US residents struggled financially, according to a government spending watchdog group.

The combined wealth of the 81-year-old retiring director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and his bioethicist wife, Christine Grady, soared from $7.5 million in 2019 to $12.6 million at the end of 2021, according to a report from the non-profit OpenTheBooks.

“Despite becoming a figure of controversy, the system has rewarded Dr. Fauci handsomely,” the group’s CEO, Adam Andrzejewski, told Fox News Digital. “While Dr. Fauci has been a government bureaucrat for more than 55 years, his household net worth skyrocketed during the pandemic.”

The couple’s wealth boost was due in part to major salary increases, cash awards and royalties, according to the report.

You might recall that Fauci’s “royalties” have been a point of contention when squaring off against Sen. Rand Paul:

Apparently there are good reasons Fauci didn’t want to go there.

This is considered completely normal in DC circles.

“Thanks for defending science… here’s a million dollars.” Nope, nothing to see here!

The Democrats will have a big retirement party for Fauci in December and some other group will probably hand him another big pile of money.
