Appearing on Hugh Hewitt’s radio program, Fauci was asked if he could ever see himself resigning if he caused “more harm than good.”
“No, absolutely, unequivocally, no,” Fauci replied.
The infectious disease expert then went after Hewitt and other critics on a variety of “controversies” related to his own medical advice, as well as that of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
“We have been dealing with an evolving situation,” Fauci said at one point, echoing a defense he’s presented for himself in the past. He added that examples of his advice changing – such as being against masks early in the pandemic – can be chalked up to changing data influencing his perspective.
