One moment she's playing a street worker for Richard Gere, and the next she's giving courage awards to Dr. Fauci. That would be Julia Roberts who presented 80-year-old Dr. Fauci with the Award of Courage, calling him a "beacon for us."

I'm not exactly sure what Dr. Fauci does that warrants a courage award, but it happened. The report stated:

"You've been tireless and true for all of us and I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart," the "Pretty Woman" actress says while presenting the nation's top infectious diseases expert with amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research's Award of Courage. People on Thursday was first to report details of the organization's virtual event, scheduled to be seen on March 4.

Roberts, 53, heaps praise on Fauci and his work fighting AIDS amid the coronavirus pandemic, telling him, "You have been a beacon for us."

"Thank you so much Julia, those are such very kind words. I really do appreciate them. Coming from you, that really means a lot to me," Fauci, 80, replies.

Julia Roberts was starstruck when she chat with Dr. Fauci nine months ago, as shown by Good Morning America.

Is Julia Roberts trying to hook up with Fauci or something?

Either way. I don't really care, but I do have to say that just being a doctor doesn't make Fauci a man of courage in comparison to the front-line workers who've been to work since day one of the pandemic breaking out a year ago.

No one has more courage than the front-line workers, doctors IN hospitals, nurses, people working the register when I step out for a hoagie, and teachers lucky enough to work in a clean school that can be opened.

Some 80-year-old doctor who should have retired 15 years ago, who is surrounded by the best care available, isn't that courageous.

Spare me with me the bullsh*t and the fake awards.
