Elon Musk, in a new interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the New York Times published Thursday, produced what he called a “creepy” detail.
Ahead of his retirement from government service, which officially begins Jan. 1, the New York Times reports published an interview with dr Fauci, who revealed his home office is littered with portraits and drawings of himself.
The opening paragraphs of the interview state:
The walls in the office of Dr. Anthony S. Fauci are adorned with portraits of him drawn and painted by some of his many fans. The most notable is that of singer Joan Baez.
The two, he said, “have become pretty good friends over the years.” Fauci seemed a little uncomfortable with people knowing about the pictures. He said that the “far right” had previously attacked him as “egomaniacs” when they were caught on camera. If someone bothered to send him a portrait of themselves, they would “feel I didn’t respect him” if they threw it away.
Musk, the second richest person in the world, drew attention to the detail on Friday, which he described as “creepy”. The world’s second richest person then taunted Fauci, saying, “Maybe he just loves getting into science?”
The rhetorical question refers to Dr. Fauci’s story of the merging of “science” with his perspective on scientific data.
Fauci, who has served as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984, announced his retirement from government service in August. He is ready to collect hundreds of thousands of tax dollars annually retired.
In his interview with the Times, Fauci said his post-administration life will include writing a memoir and consulting roles when necessary.
He also reiterated that he is a registered political independent and said he was willing to work with House Republican government oversight — but fired on them.
“I have no problem testifying before Congress. I have nothing to hide. I could easily explain and justify everything I’ve done,” Fauci said. “So they make a fuss about it, but I respect the concept of oversight.”
