Sen. Rand Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, recently delivered a scathing comment about Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who announced earlier this year that he would be stepping down from his position in the coming days.
In a recent interview with The Washington Post, Dr. Fauci responded nonchalantly to a question about whether he would have handled the COVID-19 epidemic differently. Fauci told the Post, “I’m the first to admit I’m far from perfect, but when you say do over, you know, I really can’t see something that I would do completely over.”
In reaction to Fauci’s comments, Paul stated, “Likely there is no public figure, or public health figure, that has made a greater error in judgment than Dr. Fauci. The error in judgment was to fund gain-of-function research in a totalitarian country — fund research that allowed them to create super viruses that, in all likelihood, accidentally leaked into the public and caused seven million people to die.”
“Think about it. This is right up there with decisions, some of them malevolent or military, to kill millions of people,” Paul added. “This is accidental, but it goes to judgment. Talk about errors. You think he might apologize to the world for funding research that allowed superviruses to be created in a lab – a lab that was not properly outfitted for safety, that people were already reporting was dangerous – to support that kind of research, and then to look the other way and say, ‘Nothing to see here,’ and to cover it up.”
“For the last two years, he’s been covering his tracks, but we’ve caught him red-handed, and he won’t get away,” said the Republican senator who is also a physician.
Last week, Megyn Kelly, an independent journalist, slammed Fauci for “all the lies” he uttered and how there “will be no accountability” for the several significant choices he participated in and made.
“Absolutely no accountability for anything Fauci did, all of the lies he told, the bad decisions he made, the funding of the gain of function research – which suddenly he doesn’t remember the depositions – You’re not familiar?! You’re not familiar at this point, it may have caused a global pandemic what was happening there, we’ll never know apparently because we can’t really get answers from the Chinese or from YOU and you can still sit here and say, ‘Oh, I don’t know, I’m not familiar’. And now he’s going to go be honored as the Yale commencement speaker for the future doctors of America, it’s infuriating!” Kelly ranted.
Kelly continued with her diatribe against Fauci:
“He said he changed the number when he thought the public would tolerate a greater percentage,” the former Fox News host answered her own question. “Another lie that he admitted to. This wasn’t the evolution of anything, besides Anthony Fauci’s con.” CONTINUE READING…
