Dr. Anthony Fauci was called out on social media after it surfaced that the retired NIAID director is charging up to $100,000 for speaking engagements. The DC way is to cash in on government service and Fauci is no different than the rest.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ rapid response director Christina Pushaw broke the news by posting a screenshot from the Leading Motivational Speaker’s Agency’s website where Fauci is listed as a “motivational” and “health care” keynote speaker but it will cost you $50,000 to $100,000 to hire him.
The website says of Fauci: “Keynote Speaker Anthony Fauci is America’s leading expert on infectious diseases. He is currently the Director of the National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases (NIAID). He is a lead member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force addressing the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.
“Anthony’s career as a public health servant has spanned over 50 years. He is the son of a pharmacist and earned his medical degree from Cornell University Medical College.

“He then went on to serve as the Head of the Clinical Physiology Section before being appointed Chief of the Laboratory of Immunoregulation. In 1984, he took his current position as Director of NIAID.
