The Zoom backgrounds of politicians and celebrities have been closely watched during the pandemic when in-person interviews ceased and viewers began to look inside their real homes.

Whitmer discussed efforts by the GOP to push through electoral reform legislation, including 39 GOP-led bills in the Michigan legislature that would require new IDs, ban prepaid out-of-office envelopes, and reduce the number of out-of-office dropboxes.

“We have just had a historic, free, fair, full election. There was no fraud as this big lie carried on and fed people’s fears and inspired the unthinkable on January 6, ‘Whitmer said.

She added: ‘But basically this is a solution looking for a problem and it’s unacceptable and so if and when those bills come on my desk and they try to make it harder for people to vote, they get a veto . ‘

Dr. Fauci gained thousands of fans in the US and the world last year when he rose to fame as a result of his coronavirus briefings alongside President Trump.

In March last year, it was revealed that he held his head in his hands, behind President Trump, and eventually he was played by Hollywood actor Brad Pitt on Saturday Night Live.

He has been dubbed “ the truth-teller ” for repeatedly contradicting and rebuking the former president’s claims about the coronavirus.

In March last year, Trump told the media that there had been positive results after doctors tried chloroquine on COVID-19 patients, suggesting the drug could be a game changer.

“It has shown very, very encouraging early results. We will be able to make that drug available almost immediately. It’s approved, ”Trump exclaimed.

But Dr. Fauci dampened the president’s excitement a few hours later, in an appearance on CNN that bluntly said, “There is currently no magic drug for the coronavirus.”

‘Let me put it in perspective for viewers … there is anecdotal unproven evidence that it is [chloroquine] works … but when you have an uncontrolled trial, you can never say with certainty that it works. ‘
