NBC’s The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon reacted when Dr. Anthony Fauci announced his intention to retire after President Joe Biden’s term ended by suggesting that everyone is curious as to “when” the president would do so.
” I read that Dr. Fauci stated that he would retire at the end of President Biden’s term. Biden was then asked if he had any announcements. ‘” Fallon said.
“Ofcourse, Fauci’s departure will mean that a slightly less powerful version of him is in his place,” said the talk-show host.

Fallon also poked fun at Biden’s recent trip to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in his monologue. Fallon called it “not a great looking .”
“President Biden met with Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia in a highly controversial encounter. But the main controversy was when Biden gave him a “fist bump”.
“Biden stated, “That wasn’t an arm bump, that’s me trying to punch his as hard I could,” Fallon jokingly said. It’s not a very good look. This is like greeting Putin with both a chest bump .”
and a hug.
Recently, Biden’s approval rating has sunk to a historic new low of 29 percent — making it the first time in his presidency in which he has reached the 20s with regards to approval rating numbers, a Civiqs poll revealed last week.
Biden has seen his approval ratings steadily drop due to many factors. After his disastrous and fatal withdrawal from Afghanistan in August which saw American citizens being stranded behind enemy lines, the president’s approval ratings began to decline.
That disastrous move was then followed by a 40-year-high inflation, record high gas prices, and a food shortage for the nation’s youngest, most vulnerable citizens, leaving desperate mothers scrambling to find baby formula on store shelves.
In recent months, Biden’s mental state has been also questioned. The majority of voters think Biden is not fit to serve as president and question his mental abilities. Sixty-two per cent believe he’s too old to run for president, and fifty-nine per cent are worried about his mental or physical health.
