Dr. Anthony Fauci’s greed is on full display, as the retired NIAID director is charging a hefty price for his speaking engagements. Fox News Reported, Despite being one of the most controversial figures of the pandemic, Fauci is listed on the Leading Motivational Speaker’s Agency’s website as a “motivational” and “health care” keynote speaker, with fees ranging from $50,000 to $100,000.
This should come as no surprise, given that Fauci was once considered the highest-paid employee of the U.S. government, even surpassing the President. In 2019, Fauci earned a staggering $417,608 and from 2010 to 2019, he pulled in a total of $3.6 million.
Fauci has been a darling of the media and Hollywood, but to many conservative Americans, he is nothing more than a career bureaucrat who has relished in his newfound stardom.
He has been inconsistent with his messaging from the start of the pandemic, and now we see him cashing in on his celebrity status. Despite this, Fauci continues to make public appearances and has even been selected to give the 2023 Yale Medical School commencement speech.
It’s truly disgusting to see Fauci taking advantage of the public in such a manner, especially considering his net worth has expanded from $7.5 million in 2019 to $12.6 million at the end of 2021.
This increase came from a variety of sources, including investment gains, awards, compensation, and royalties. It’s time for Fauci to retire and let someone with more credibility and integrity take the stage.
The American people deserve better than a greedy opportunist who is taking advantage of a global pandemic to increase his wealth and fame. It’s clear that Fauci is only motivated by money and is using his influence to line his pockets.
This kind of behavior is unacceptable and should be called out for what it is – a disgrace to the medical community and a betrayal to the American people.
It’s time for Republicans and passionate conservative voters to take a stand and demand accountability from those in positions of power. We deserve leaders who put the needs of the American people above their own self-interests.
Let this be a lesson to all public servants: your service should be motivated by a desire to serve and not by the promise of wealth and fame.
