Dr. Fauci has become a household name in America, and has become the main source of credible information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. But it seems his brains are not the only thing attracting the attention of the American public.
A petition has been circulated to name Dr. Anthony Fauci the “sexiest man alive” for People Magazine. The petition has already garnered over 10,000 signatures and is growing by the minute. The website features a picture of the 79 year-old Dr. Fauci, happily smiling at the camera donning a laboratory coat and button up shirt.
The website reads, “ His comforting and intelligent demeanor has helped to lessen our national anxiety. He speaks truth to power, a strength few have at this time. His kind face and manner of speaking bring calm during the storm. For sapiophiles and many others, he is the definitive Sexiest Man Alive in 2020.”
And what does Dr. Fauci say about this? Well, exactly what you’d think a man battling the largest pandemic of the century so far.
“We try not to pay attention to that and just focus on the responsibility of the job that we have,” the doctor explained. “That’s the most important thing, not that other stuff.”
