Dr. Fauci has several articles of memorabilia centering around his image, including a prayer candle that depicts him as a religious figure.
Fox host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson pointed out the candles on Fauci’s bookshelf Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
In a segment on his show Monday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed them out while connecting the left’s COVID cult to the NAIAD director, Those prayer lights were clearly visible on a shelf behind where the doctor regularly conducts remote conversations in a recent interview.
Carlson slammed the secular, Fauci-obsessed left-wing media, public health officials, and Democratic voters for treating pandemic fear and public responses to it as a religion. He also hit at those same people for treating Fauci as that religion’s high priest.
Carlson said, noting that the doctor has apparently bought into the cultural phenomenon he has become for millions of wayward Americans, “Tony Fauci is himself a devout member of the church of Tony Fauci. Now take a look at this still photo from Tony Fauci’s home office. Look in the back, on the bookshelf.”
Visible from his home camera, prayer candles containing Fauci’s face were right out in the open inside of his private residence.
Carlson said as he mocked the man whose self-admiration and apparent worship have driven so much of U.S. policy throughout the last year and a half, “Those are Tony Fauci prayer candles, prominently displayed inside Tony Fauci’s home, Oh. At least he’s real. Tony Fauci isn’t just the high priest of Fauci-ism. He’s also a true believer himself.”
According to what he told Hugh Hewitt on the radio last week, it looks like this little man will not eat humble pie and simply go away.
“Is there a point where you will say, ‘I do more harm than good because people don’t listen to me anymore,’ and step aside?” Hewitt asked in an interview, noting that Fauci seemed to have lost a great deal of trust with millions of Americans.
Fauci responded, “No. Absolutely, unequivocally no, Hugh. Sorry.”
Well, perhaps the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases could at least tone the narcissism, but it seems Fauci doesn’t plan to go away, not…Apparently.
Fauci found his face on some of these candles. Rather than smile and brush them off as absurd — which they are — he apparently collected a couple of them, and they are being displayed on a shelf inside of his house and It’s not uncommon for popular public figures to find their faces on prayer candles that usually contain images of Jesus Christ or Catholic saints.
Twitter users were quick to mock Fauci over the candles, and they are available for sale on a number of websites.

It says a lot about our society that Fauci’s image on a prayer candle is a hot item online for leftists whose only religion at this point appears to be treating Fauci and the government he represents as a deity. It says even more about Fauci that he thinks enough of himself that he procured some of those candles, and that he doesn’t seem to care who knows it.
