Dr. Anthony Fauci's last day as a federal employee of the United States came and went this past Saturday, marking an end to his career as the director N.I.H.’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
His 38-year career was marked by an oftentimes tumultuous relationship between himself and the American public over the last three years as the Covid-19 pandemic raged across the world.
Some Twitter users reacted to the news of Fauci's retirement with comments filled with well-wishes, while many users across social media used this opportunity to make their negative feelings known.
User Victorshi2020 offered heartfelt thanks to one of the most polarizing public figures in recent American history:
Today marks Dr. Anthony Fauci’s last day serving as the director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a position he has held for nearly 40 years. Dr. Fauci embodies the best of public service and science. He will be so missed. Thank you, Dr. Fauci. pic.twitter.com/YkJOkBF252— Victor Shi (@Victorshi2020) January 1, 2023
Others users weren't shy about wanting Fauci to be prosecuted over the way he handled the pandemic response via mandates:

This Twitter user decided that in the end, he will regard Fauci as an asset to the country as a whole:
When the history books are written, Dr. Fauci and his decades of government service to America curing the sick will go down as one of the greatest contributions to all of humanity by one individual.— Grant Stern is boosted! (@grantstern) January 1, 2023
He made this world a better place.

There is no vaccine for HIV after 40yrs of research.— Vanessa Sierra (@vanessasierra00) January 2, 2023
No cure for cancer after 100yrs of research.
The flu spreads like wildfire each year without any concern.
Yet a virus appears out of nowhere, a vaccine magically appears from 4 different pharma and forced on us?
Some users chose to take this time to express their gratitude towards him:
Today is Dr. Fauci’s last day of service to our nation. He’s an American hero who has saved millions of lives. I’ll forever be grateful for him!— Harry Sisson (@harryjsisson) December 31, 2022
…While other users like TimRunsHisMouth wouldn't be surprised to see Fauci enter the private sector as soon as possible.
How long until Pfizer or Moderna hire Fauci as an executive… 3 days?— Tim Young (@TimRunsHisMouth) January 2, 2023
