People noticed something very bizarre in Anthony Fauci’s home.
Fauci recently faced a tough grilling during an interview with Hugh Hewitt.
He was directly confronted with the fact that many Americans do not trust him given his history of hypocrisy, flip-flops, and failed predictions.
But something in the background caught the eye of viewers.
On the bookshelf behind him, Fauci appears to have prayer candles containing Fauci’s own face.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson pointed out these “Tony Fauci prayer candles” on his show Monday night.
“Those are Tony Fauci prayer candles, prominently displayed inside Tony Fauci’s home,” Carlson said mockingly.
“Oh. At least he’s real,” Tucker joked. “Tony Fauci isn’t just the high priest of Fauci-ism. He’s also a true believer himself.”

Fauci was immediately mocked on social media.
“Lord Fauci has Fauci candles in his office,” one person responded. “What a total loser.”
“Who knew Fauci had worship candles of himself in his home office?” another person wrote. “Talk about worshipping yourself.”

Carlson brutally criticized Fauci as a secular public health official who is obsessed with the left-wing media attention.
This isn’t the first time Fauci has been criticized for appearing to be full of himself.
Fauci previously sat down for glamour shots for InStyle magazine wearing sunglasses with his legs crossed next to a swimming pool:
During the recent interview, Hewitt told Fauci directly, “I have lost confidence in the CDC and the FDA and I actually believe a lot of Americans, a significant part of America now have lost confidence in you, Dr. Fauci.”
He asked, “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?”
“No. Absolutely, unequivocally no, Hugh. Sorry,” Fauci reacted.
To explain his hypocrisy and flip-flops, Fauci said, “When you have an evolving situation and data are rapidly evolving in something that is unprecedented and unknown, you have to evolve with it and look at the data as it exists now and make to the best of your ability a decision, a recommendation, all the kinds of things that go into the evolution.”
“It’s just a fact that Tony Fauci, not the guy I’m talking with but Tony Fauci- the person in people’s minds, is now an impediment to public health because people won’t listen to you,” Hewitt said.
“They actively reject what Tony Fauci says for reasons which are complicated… but can you accept that if that’s just the fact, you ought to respond to it and say ‘Mr. President, I think my time is up as a successful and effective spokesperson?’”
Fauci responded, “You know, with all due respect… I just completely disagree with that premise because there are an awful lot of people who do listen, who do the right thing from a public health standpoint.”
“So because there are a lot of people who have ideas of conspiracies and changing minds and flip-flopping, that’s not a reason to step down. Not at all,” Fauci added.
Watch the fiery exchange:
Finally!@hughhewitt challenges Dr. Fauci on why he doesn’t resign seeing as his history of hypocrisy, flip-flops, and failed predictions have destroyed his value as a public-health official.
Fauci, unsurprisingly, is aghast & refuses to take the suggestion seriously. pic.twitter.com/tzV7ckfP4T
