It looks like a certain someone sees the writing on the wall. 

"Dr." Anthony Fauci, Director of both the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), says he going to retire "by the end of President Joe Biden's term," according to Politico.

But according to Fauci, there might be an ulterior motive to announcing his retirement early. If Republicans take over the House and/or Senate after the midterms in November, Fauci knows that he would become a prime target.

"They're [the GOP] going to try and come after me, anyway," Fauci said. "I mean, probably less so if I'm not in the job. I don't make that a consideration in my career decision."

Really? Then why even bring it up?

During the interview with Politico, Fauci even admitted what many of us have known for a long while - the Chinese coronavirus (COVID-19) is just something we're going to have to live with for the foreseeable future.

"We're in a pattern now," said Fauci. "If somebody says, 'You'll leave when we don't have Covid anymore,' then I will be 105. I think we're going to be living with this."

Even though the doctor who has a vaccine nickname in his honor - the "Fauci Ouchie" - is allegedly retiring, it can't come soon enough.
