On Friday morning, Joe Biden gave his remarks on the economy following the release of the “unexpected” weak May jobs report. As Biden walked out of the room after finishing his comments he answered two shouted questions about his infrastructure negotiations with Congress. One reporter shouted the third question, “Do you still have confidence in Dr. Fauci?”, as Biden disappeared behind a set of double doors. Several staffers followed Biden through the one open door. Suddenly, after the passing of about seven seconds, Biden’s hand grabbed the closed door as he partially leaned around the door and his head peeked out. Biden said, “Yes, I’m very confident in Dr Fauci,” and then again disappeared behind the doors.

It was an odd show of support in that Biden didn’t put himself out front of reporters to make his declaration. It was also an odd moment for a White House press corps that worships Fauci as the patron saint of COVID but smells blood in the water following the release of Fauci’s emails and a breakthrough Vanity Fair article on the federal government’s internecine battles over the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic.

And another longer version of the video.

Jill Biden is scheduled to interview Dr. Fauci on Monday on Live With Kelly and Ryan per a press release by ABC Disney issued Thursday.

In the exclusive interview, the First Lady and Dr. Fauci will sit down with Ripa and Seacrest to discuss the latest efforts to combat COVID-19, share an update on the progress that the country has made against the pandemic, and talk about the widening scope of vaccination efforts in the U.S.
