"In my nearly five decades of public service, I have never publicly endorsed any political candidate," Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CNN over the weekend. Above, Fauci testified before the House Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis hearing on July 31, 2020 in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday he was taken completely out of context - and without his permission - in a campaign ad for President Trump lauding the U.S. response to the pandemic.

"I can't imagine that ... anybody could be doing more," Fauci is shown saying in the 30-second ad, with the ellipses inserted in a caption to the video, just at the point where there appears to be a split-second break.

According to CNN, Fauci's quote came out of a Fox News interview conducted in March in which he praised the efforts of the White House coronavirus task force. At the time, he spoke about the unprecedented nature of the coronavirus threat and the "all hands on deck" nature of the response.
