Dr. Anthony Fauci privately made fun of people who took his advice to wear goggles to protect from COVID-19 and those who wore a mask into a restaurant and then took them off when they got to the table, per a new book.

Former White House official Brian Morgenstern makes the accusation in his new book Vignettes & Vino, according to the New York Post.

FAUCI SAYS COVID-19’S INTENSITY ‘UNACCEPTABLY HIGH’ AFTER BIDEN DECLARES PANDEMIC OVER

“In January 2020, [Fauci] said the virus was nothing to worry about for the American people. Then in the months that followed, he said that people should not wear masks and that they were ineffective. By June or July, he had changed his tune and said everyone should be very concerned and that they should wear multiple masks — and goggles,” Morgenstern wrote. “I vividly recall my blood boiling during an infuriating meeting in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, when Fauci laughed about his own goggles comment, making it clear how cynical he was and that he could get people to believe anything.”

Fauci first made the recommendation to wear goggles or eye shields to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in July 2020. He did note at the time the measure was “not universally recommended” but insisted to use the protective equipment “if you really want to be complete.”

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases also allegedly made fun of “a**-backwards” policy regarding dining at restaurants during the height of the pandemic.

“He went on to laugh about how ‘a**-backwards’ it was that people entered a restaurant wearing a mask, then sat down and conversed with people without a mask. Of course, he wasn’t saying things to that effect publicly, just laughing privately at the American rubes he was fooling,” Morgenstern wrote.

Fauci served as a member of the White House coronavirus task force under the Trump administration. He announced last month he will be stepping away from his roles as director of the NIAID, chief of the NIAID’s Laboratory of Immunoregulation, and chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden at the end of the year.

The book Vignettes & Vino, a book detailing stories from the Trump administration paired with recipes, is set to release on Oct. 25.
