Dr. Fauci's horrendous first pitch at the Washington Nationals game proves exactly what we already knew: he is our country's top nerd 😍

In Dr Fauci’s defense, he’s spent his whole life making sure no one catches anything. #FauciFirstPitch

I will give Dr. Anthony Fauci some credit here, he did follow social distancing by ensuring the ball was six feet away from the mound. pic.twitter.com/gM30qDiDG8
