Revealed in journalist-obtained emails, Dr. Anthony Fauci had a Google alert for his full name and passed along an article about his sex appeal.
Fauci pulled a classic humble brag via email in April 2020 when he complained to someone about a write-up talking about the Internet’s “sexualization” of the bureaucrat, titled, “‘Cuomo Crush and ‘Fauci Fever’ — Sexualization of These Men Is a Real Thing on the Internet.”
A “humble brag,” for the uninitiated, is defined as follow: “an ostensibly modest or self-deprecating statement whose actual purpose is to draw attention to something of which one is proud.”
The Washington Post reported on the emails (emphasis added):
At times, Fauci grew bewildered by the public fascination with him, the emails show. On March 31, a colleague at the National Institutes of Health sent Fauci an article from The Post with the headline, “Fauci socks, Fauci doughnuts, Fauci fan art: The coronavirus expert attracts a cult following.”
“Truly surrealistic. Hopefully, this all stops soon,”
