Senator John F. Kennedy (R-La.) Warned White House Chief Medical Officer Dr. Anthony Fauci to “cut the nonsense” on Wednesday night after Fauci described criticism of him as “attacks on science.”
“I know Dr. Foci, I like Dr. Fauci, I respect Dr. Fauci,” Kennedy told Haniti at Fox News. “But Dr. Fauci must reduce the nonsense.” This is not about Dr. Fauci. It’s not about his feelings and I’m sorry if his feelings are hurt. You know, maybe you should buy a pony for emotional support.
“But we’re not discussing TikTok dance moves here,” the color senator continued. “We’re talking about millions of human lives.”
In recent days, Fauci has been criticized on a number of issues related to the coronavirus pandemic since the publication of thousands of emails, including his changed stance on the effectiveness of masks and his early rejection of the virus accidentally leaking from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan.
“Much of what you see as attacks on me is, frankly, attacks on science,” Fauzi told MSNBC earlier Wednesday, “because all the things I’ve talked about consistently from the beginning are fundamentally based on science … People want to fire me or put me in jail for what I did – namely, to study science. “
Fauci went on to confirm his belief that “the most likely origin [of the virus] is of natural origin from animal reservoir to human. However, we did not rule out the possibility of a leak from the laboratory. I have not changed my mind. “
Kennedy disputed Fauci’s claim, noting that “Dr. Fauci gave a lot of money to American taxpayers for the Wuhan laboratory so that Chinese scientists could study bat coronaviruses. Neither Dr. Fauci nor any of his people can guarantee that Chinese scientists have not used this money to do research to gain function and turn a normal virus into a supercharged virus. They weren’t observed, Dr. Fautsi and his men weren’t watching the lab, and it’s not like it hasn’t happened before. ”
Kennedy also asked host Sean Hannity, “Do you really think that if China can prove that this virus occurred naturally, in nature, it will keep that evidence?” No, she would shout at him from the roof to get the world off his back. “
A member of the Senate Justice Committee concluded that Fauci “should hit these things head-on, otherwise it will undermine public health, people’s trust in public health, and Americans will trust Dr. Pepper more than Dr. p. . Fauci. “
