(CBrief) – The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is under fire by social media users for being obsessed with himself.

Fauci sat down for an interview with the New York Times on his last day in office, which was December 30. The opening sentence of the article read, “The walls in Dr. Anthony S. Fauci’s home office are adorned with portraits of him, drawn and painted by some of his many fans.” The author of the Times article observed that “Dr. Fauci seemed a little uncomfortable with people knowing about the pictures.”

“He said that previously, when they were captured on camera, the ‘far right’ attacked him as an ‘egomaniac,’” Sheryl Gay Stolberg wrote. “If someone goes to the trouble of sending him a portrait of himself, he said, he would ‘feel like I’m disrespecting them’ if he discarded it.”
