Dr. Tony Fauci has been frequently portrayed on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The host of "Late Night with Seth Meyers" brought up the topic during an interview with the nation's top infectious disease expert.
"Dr. Fauci, I guess it probably is never good for the rest of us when you are being portrayed on "Saturday Night Live." Is that safe?" he asked.
"That is true," Fauci replied.
"When I'm on "Saturday Night Live," it's not good news for the health of the country," he explained.
Dr. Fauci is flattered when he’s parodied on @nbcsnl, but it’s usually not a good sign for the country. https://t.co/O0KmVFlzZR— Late Night with Seth Meyers (@Late Night with Seth Meyers) 1616889600.0
