“Here are some suggestions that I’ve heard. Ben Stiller, Brad Pitt. Which one?” Camerota said.
Fauci laughed and responded, “Oh, Brad Pitt, of course.”
On Saturday night, Fauci got his wish.
In a surprise appearance, Pitt played Fauci at the opening of Saturday’s “SNL,” which was produced remotely because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“First, I’d like to thank all the older women in America who have sent me supportive, inspiring and sometimes graphic e-mails,” Pitt as Fauci said.
Pitt’s Fauci then explained that there’s been a lot of misinformation out there about the coronavirus, and that “yes, the President has taken some liberties with our guidelines.”
He then said he’d like to explain what President Trump was “trying to say.”
“And remember, let’s all keep an open mind,” Pitt’s Fauci said.
