Fauci's new book on Covid response 'pulled from Amazon and Barnes & Noble' as he's slammed for 'profiting' off pandemic
ANTHONY Fauci's new book about his Covid-19 response has been pulled from Amazon and Barnes & Noble, reports say.
Fauci's new pandemic playbook, entitled "Expect the Unexpected: Ten Lessons on Truth, Service, and the Way Forward," is set for release by National Geographic Books on November 2.
The $18 book was posted for pre-sale on both websites but the pages have since been removed as he's slammed by conservative politicians for "profiting" from the pandemic.
National Geographic Books confirmed the removal to Daily Mail, explaining it was "prematurely posted for pre-sale," after troves of his emails were released.
“The book was developed by National Geographic Books in connection with an upcoming National Geographic Documentary Film about Dr. Fauci," the statement said. "He will not earn any royalties from its publication.”
The touted tome will feature interviews Fauci has done in his role as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
“The earnest reflections in these pages will offer a universal message on how to lead in times of crisis and find resilience in the face of disappointments and obstacles," the overview reads.
A children's picture book called "Dr. Fauci: How a Boy from Brooklyn Became America's Doctor'" will also be released on June 28.
Fox News contributor Joe Concha slammed the release and compared Fauci's upcoming book to NY Gov Andrew Cuomo's.
"Look, I think many in the country threw up in their mouth a little bit when they heard that Dr Anthony Fauci will be releasing a book on the pandemic, thereby profiting off the pandemic," he raged.
"If you look at the numbers again, you had Cuomo profiting off a pandemic, a government official. Now we have Fauci doing it as well. I think this is appalling," Concha added, before it emerged that Fauci won't profit.
Meanwhile, more than 3,000 pages of Fauci's emails were obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and published on Tuesday by Buzzfeed and other outlets.
The leaked correspondence shows he was told Covid-19 may have been engineered at the start of the pandemic, but publicly downplayed it.
Correspondance revealed how Fauci dismissed an email warning about China's Covid "cover-up" at the start of the pandemic because it was "too long" for him to read.
Candace Owens has called for Anthony Fauci to be "tried and put into federal prison" ahead of the top doc's book release.
The emails have led to renewed calls for Fauci to be fired from Republicans like Sen Rand Paul, Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene, and others.
Fauci makes $417,608 per year as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, while the president earns $400,000 per annum.
