(PatrioticPost.com)- Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who lied to Congress last year about the National Institute of Health’s funding of gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, will be honored with his very own portrait at the National Portrait Gallery this year.
Announcing its 2022 Portrait of a National Honorees on Wednesday, the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Galley published a list of honorees that included Dr. Fauci. The controversial decision comes as documents reveal how Fauci warned during the early days of the COVID pandemic that the novel coronavirus would have originated from the Wuhan lab.
According to documents shown by Bret Baier on a Fox News special report last Tuesday, Fauci was told on January 27, 2020, that his agency was indirectly funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan via American non-profit group EcoHealth. He was also told by virologist Dr. Kristian Anderson in private that many features of COVID-19 don’t appear to be consistent with normal evolutionary theory.
And yet, despite hiding this evidence and literally lying to Congress, Dr. Fauci is all set to receive his very own portrait in the National Portrait Gallery.
“We are proud to introduce the 2022 Portrait of a Nation Honorees who embody creativity, individuality, excellence, and service to the people of our country,” a statement said.
Fauci and six others will attend a gala in November, which the Smithsonian said will “celebrate seven remarkable individuals for their transformational impact on the nation’s history, development, and culture.”
“Transformational” is accurate, at least…
