Dr. Anthony Fookie is facing a backlash when he insists it is too early to say whether COVID-19 epidemics will disrupt Christmas holiday gatherings this year.
In one Interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday The White House Chief Medical Adviser was asked if the groups could get together for the holiday.
“It’s too early to tell. We have to focus on bringing those numbers down and not try to jump beyond weeks or months and say what we’re going to do at a particular time.
But his response was criticized by Republican leaders, who called him “Scrooge.”
“I don’t think anyone is listening to Scrooge Fookie. I know I won’t,” said Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul. Written on Twitter.
Arizona Representative Andy Bugs. “No one chose Foucault as the Tsar of Christmas,” he added.
New York correspondent Alice Stephenick also blew up the country’s top infectious disease specialist.
Fookie has lost all credibility with the American people. We are not waiting for his permission to celebrate Christmas together. Written on Twitter.
Foucault encouraged Americans last year. Skip their holiday gatherings. Hopefully, they will be able to come together safely in 2021.
“For my own family, I’m saying we really had Thanksgiving and Christmas last year. We’re really looking forward to 2021 and Christmas,” Fookie said. Told USA Today. On time. “Let’s make the situation better now and show love and affection to people by keeping them safe.”
