Fauci is our top charlatan

The NY Times reports for its top story:
Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert and a central figure in the government’s response to the coronavirus, intends to warn the Senate on Tuesday that Americans would experience “needless suffering and death” if the country opens up too quickly.

Dr. Fauci, who has emerged as the perhaps nation’s most respected voice during the coronavirus crisis, is one of four top government doctors scheduled to testify remotely at a high-profile hearing on Tuesday before the Senate Health Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.
Got that? He is both the top expert and the most respected voice.

This is so idiotic. It is like saying, "our top expert says that you will risk injury if you drive your car too fast". It tells you nothing about how fast to drive.

One way to tell an expert is really a charlatan is when most of his opinions are outside his expertise. If he were really such a top infectious disease expert, he would advise us on how different policies would affect the spread of the disease, and the ultimate death count, and leave it to others to decide whether the cost is worth it. But he has given policymakers extremely little useful info, and much of that has been incorrect.

Fauci is just more proof that the world has gone mad. No one should take that clown seriously.

Update: Here is a list of 15 Fauci mistakes.
