On Wednesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared on Hugh Hewitt's radio show, and was gilled on whether or not he should step aside considering that a majority of Americans do not trust him.
"I have lost confidence in the CDC and the FDA and I actually believe a lot of Americans, a significant part of America now have lost confidence in you, Dr. Fauci," Hewitt said to Fauci. "Is there a point where you will say, 'I do more harm than good because people don't listen to me anymore,' and step aside?"
"No. Absolutely, unequivocally no, Hugh. Sorry," Fauci replied. "When you have an evolving situation and data are rapidly evolving in something that is unprecedented and unknown, you have to evolve with it and look at the data as it exists now and make to the best of your ability a decision, a recommendation, all the kinds of things that go into the evolution."
Finally!@hughhewitt challenges Dr. Fauci on why he doesn’t resign seeing as his history of hypocrisy, flip-flops, and failed predictions have destroyed his value as a public-health official.
Fauci, unsurprisingly, is aghast & refuses to take the suggestion seriously. pic.twitter.com/tzV7ckfP4T

"It's just a fact that Tony Fauci, not the guy I'm talking with but Tony Fauci- the person in people's minds, is now an impediment to public health because people won't listen to you," Hewitt challenged. "They actively reject what Tony Fauci says for reasons which are complicated… but can you accept that if that's just the fact, you ought to respond to it and say ‘Mr. President, I think my time is up as a successful and effective spokesperson?’"
"You know, with all due respect… I just completely disagree with that premise because there are an awful lot of people who do listen, who do the right thing from a public health standpoint," Fauci responded. "So because there are a lot of people who have ideas of conspiracies and changing minds and flip-flopping, that's not a reason to step down. Not at all."
"So the idea that people right now are not listening to what I'm saying, what I'm saying is the truth," he added.
"I actually agree," Hewitt said. "I got the booster, I'm Mr. Vaccine, I get the same kind of heat that you do, and what I'm saying though is there comes a point where it is simply a matter of fact that Tony Fauci in the era of social media is different than Tony Fauci of the beginning of HIV. And if a new face for the program developed, we would see an increase in vaccines and an increase in booster use. So if that data is presented to you that more people would get vaccinated if you left the scene, would you leave the scene?"
Fauci then insisted that his presence in the government is "not an obstacle to getting vaccination rates up."
"So people are saying, 'I'm not getting the vaccine because Dr. Fauci is in the government.' Are you kidding me?" Fauci said.
"No actually, I believe that's the truth, doctor," Hewitt noted. "You're not hearing me, doctor. You're not hearing me. I'm saying people see you coming on and they turn off the channel because they don't like you whereas if a new face arrives, a new younger face… if a new person shows up, I think we're more effective."
Fauci dismissed that theory, and added that he will not be stepping down from his position.
