According to a new book, Dr. Anthony Fauci bluntly mocked “ass-backwards” diners who removed their coronavirus masks when seated — and laughed at the absurdity of his idea of ​​COVID-19 goggles.

An internal account by former White House spokesman Brian Morgenstern was included in “Vignettes & Vino” – released October 25 – which describes Fauci as “horrible” and “egocentric”.

“[I]In January 2020, [Fauci] He said the virus is nothing to worry about for the American people. Then in the months that followed, he said people should not wear masks and that they were ineffective. By June or July, he had changed his tune and said that everyone should be very worried and that they should wear multiple masks and glasses.”

“I vividly remember my blood boiling during an infuriating meeting in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, when Fauci laughed at the hanging of his own glasses, making it clear how ridiculous he was and that he could make people believe anything,” the former aide continued.

He went on to laugh about how people walk into a restaurant wearing a mask, and then sit down and talk to people without a mask. Of course, he wasn’t saying things to that sense in public, but was secretly laughing at the American Sapphire who was cheating on him.”

The practice of wearing masks in businesses but not while eating or drinking was enforced by local orders across the US in mid-2020. Indoor tables were generally spaced out to allow for social distancing between parties.

Around the time of the Roosevelt Room meeting, Fauci urged diners to wear masks while seated — and recommended that masks be hidden while waiting for a waiter at a Comedy Central interview — but the colorful mockery of people who obeyed the mask rules but without enough enthusiasm is new.

Although he allegedly laughed at his remark about goggles, Fauci made a more serious impression when he made the recommendation to ABC News’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton.

“If you have goggles or eye protection, you should use them,” Fauci told Ashton in July 2020.

When asked if eye protection is officially recommended, Fauci said, “It might be, if you really want perfect protection for mucosal surfaces.”

Fauci, 81, will retire in December after 38 years as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. His office did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

Although Fauci is widely respected among Democrats as a public health icon, he is not widely trusted by Republicans and allies of former President Donald Trump.

He has served in office for decades.

Fauci faced accusations of hypocrisy in July 2020 when he sat without a mask between a friend and his wife inside Nationals Park after throwing an opening floor — arguably in violation of DC’s outdoor mandate.

In a series of Senate hearings, he clashed with Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) over US funding for “gain-the-job” research in Wuhan, China, the laboratory where the US intelligence community says the coronavirus pandemic may have begun.

Morgenstern co-authored the upcoming book with his wife, Theresa Morgenstern, the press officer for Operation Warp Speed, which has led the rapid development of COVID-19 vaccines.

The book combines tales from the Trump era with recipes for food and drink. Fauci’s class of “Opening-Day Burgers” recipes are paired with beer.
