Watch: Dr. Fauci’s ‘Clarification’ Makes Biden Look Even More Incompetent
The circus continues and it hasn’t even been a week yet.
Joe Biden’s Administration proudly announced that in the first 100 days in office they would vaccinate 100 million people.
Biden’s vaccination plan has been criticized by the media, many believe his plan isn’t ambitious enough.
CNN’s Dr. Fareed Zakaria believes Biden plan is “far too modest.”
“He should double that, doing whatever it takes to achieve herd immunity… This will instantly boost America’s standing and give the President leverage with everyone,” Zakaria said.

When questioned if his plan wasn’t ambitious enough, Biden responded, “Come on, gimme a break, man.”

It got even worse for the Biden administration when Dr. Fauci appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Dr. Fauci said that he wanted to make a “clarification.”
“Let me clarify that because there was a little bit of an understanding. What we’re talking about is 100 million shots in individuals,” the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director said.
“At the end of a hundred days, you’re going to have some people who will have gotten both shots, and some will still be on their first shots,” Fauci added.
The New York Post pointed out that Fauci’s clarification contradicted a previous appearance on the network.
From the New York Post:
Fauci had been confronted with a previous interview in which he told CBS: “You know, the goal that’s been set, which I believe is entirely achievable, is to have a 100 million people vaccinated in the first 100 days.”
When asked at the time whether that meant “both vaccines” he had replied, “Primary and boost, yes.”
Biden’s “100 million” goal has already come under fire for aiming too low — with data showing the country was already distributing more than 1 million shots a day when he took office.
You’ll notice in the video below Fauci starts tripping all over himself when the host pushes back over his previous claims.
