A joke made by President Joe Biden on Thursday has led many Americans to wonder who is really running the country. The President cracked a joke that made many observers question if Joe Biden believes he has been replaced by Dr. Anthony Fauci in leading the nation.
“I’ve seen more of Dr. Fauci than I have my wife, we kid each other,” Biden joked. “They look, who’s president? Fauci. But all kidding aside, I sincerely mean it.”
Did he just say what I thought he said? @POTUS Biden: “Who’s President? Fauci! But all kidding aside…” Well mister President it is very dangerous to even joke about this, but it does answer a lot of questions about the pandemic now. pic.twitter.com/zgbxlTBJAE

Biden’s Fauci comments occurred during his Thursday visit to the National Institutes of Health headquarters in Maryland. The president also gave a speech regarding the nation’s winter strategy against the COVID-19 virus.
The plan also addressed concerns with the recently discovered Omicron variant. Cases of the variant were first discovered in the U.S. this week.
“Freudian slip? Perhaps, but individual liberty remains at risk as long as Fauci is anywhere near the reins of power,” Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul tweeted.

The words made have been made as a joke, but many see the truth that Fauci is controlling the nation more than he should.
