Recently, COVID-19 “expert” Dr. Fauci has come under fire following brutal Senate testimony and the release of 2,000 of his emails.
Critics have accused the doctor of lying to the American public about the effectiveness of masks, the necessity of business and school closures, and most damningly, that he intentionally downplayed the “lab leak” theory for political reasons.
On Meet The Press Daily, Dr. Fauci attempted to respond to the critics about misleading everyone on the role of the Wuhan Lab.
And weirdly, he decided to defend himself in third person…
“It’s very dangerous, because a lot of what you’re seeing as attacks on me, quite frankly, are attacks on science because all of the things that I have spoken about consistently from the very beginning have been fundamentally based on science,” Fauci told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd.
“Sometimes those things were inconvenient truths for people, and there was pushback against me. So if you are trying to get at me as a public health official, you’re really attacking not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you are attacking science.”
The NIH director conlcuded that “anybody that looks at what is going on clearly sees that. You have to be asleep not to see that. Science and the truth are being attacked.”
Not sure if Fauci was reading off a script at the time or if the Dr. really thinks it’s appropriate to refer to himself in the third person when discussing very serious things, but all he seemed to accomplish in his attempted defense was seeming even more out of touch than ever.
