Conservatives Mock Fauci After Photos Show His Office Has Life-Size Portrait, Bobblehead Of Himself

Social media erupted this week over an image of Doctor Anthony Fauci’s office which revealed a bobblehead and a massive, life-size portrait of himself.

The image cropped up after a Twitter user posted a screenshot of something they had seen in the National Geographic documentary titled “Fauci,” released in September.

The documentary describes Fauci as an “unlikely cultural icon” who has “valiantly overseen” various epidemics in America throughout his career.

And the Biden administration’s chief medical adviser seems to be all in on his own press.

“A peek inside Dr. Anthony Fauci’s home office reveals he’s surrounded by images of himself — including his own bobblehead and a life-size portrait on the wall,” the New York Post writes.

Fauci’s Office Is A Shrine To Fauci

While most of us feature pictures of our spouse or children on our desk or workspace, Fauci seems to be rather obsessed with … well, Fauci.

The Post continues to describe the scene – Fauci typing what appears to be an email while “a canvas print of his likeness looms over him,” and a “framed photo of what appears to be Fauci’s face” and “a Dr. Fauci bobblehead” can all be observed.

One social media user got a rise out of others by posting the screenshot and photoshopping the computer screen to make it seem like Fauci was also watching himself at his desk.

Critics seized on what many viewed as evidence of a narcissist at work.

New York City Council member Joe Borelli simply captioned the image with, “My God.”

Radio host and columnist Tim Young tweeted, “Sooo… Fauci is a total narcissistic piece of shit… got it.”

“Doesn’t this tell you everything about Fauci?” added Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe.

Others defended Fauci, suggesting that if they were as famous as he is, they might do the same thing.

“I mean, if someone made a bobblehead of me…I’d have 9 of them,” author David Burkus said.

He added that “the giant portrait is a little much though.”

The Peril Of False Idols

Fauci isn’t the only one in love with Fauci. Many left-wing commentators and political pundits have been smitten with the good doctor.

Social media is littered with liberals and Democrats who have posted images of their Fauci bobblehead dolls, posters, or other various ornaments.

Even Olivia Troye, a former aide to Vice President Mike Pence, has an unhealthy infatuation with Dr. Fauci.

Her pandemic crush is present in posted pictures of her super-creepy Dr. Anthony Fauci Christmas ornament with the caption “In Fauci we trust.”

Aside from consulting with his larger-than-life portrait and bobblehead, Fauci has praised himself as representing science.

“If they get up and really aim their bullets at Tony Fauci,” he said of his many critics, “well people can recognize that there’s a person there, so it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science because I represent science.”
