Fauci Launches Next Blow In Continuing Verbal Scrap With Sen. Rand Paul

The high-drama verbal fisticuffs between Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Dr. Anthony Fauci continues to rage on, with the White House chief medical adviser making a pivot during Senate questioning and throwing the next blow in the fray by saying that Paul’s criticism of him “kindles the crazies.”

“What happens when he gets out and accuses me of things that are completely untrue is that all of a sudden that kindles the crazies out there, and I have life threats upon my life, harassment of my family and my children with obscene phone calls, because people are lying about me now,” Fauci stated during the questioning in an attempt to deflect from Paul’s questioning to then make accusations against Paul of inspiring people to make death threats against him.

After the chairwoman of the Senate Health Committee, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., ended Paul’s time, she gave Fauci some time to speak.

“Just about three or four weeks ago when, Dec. 21, a person was arrested who was on the way from Sacramento to Washington, D.C., at a speed stop in Iowa, and they asked, the police asked him, where he was going,” Fauci stated. “And he was going to Washington, D.C., to kill Dr Fauci, and they found in his car an AR-15 and multiple magazines of ammunition, because he thinks that maybe I’m killing people.”

Fauci then accused Paul of political attacks for accuing him of “cheap politics,” having worked to disparage scientists who questione the origins of COVID-19 as “fringe.”

“Dr. Fauci do you really think it’s appropriate to use your $420,000 salary to attack scientists that disagree with you?” Paul asked.

Fauci did not answer the question.

“Do you think we slowed down the death rate?” the Kentucky Republican also asked the doctor. This question was also not answered. “More people have died now under President [Joe] Biden than did under President [Donald] Trump.”

“You are the one responsible. You are the architect. You are the lead architect for the response from the government. And now 800,000 people have died, right? You think it’s a winning success, what you’ve advocated for government?” Paul continued.

Then Fauci pivoted and accused the senator of “politicizing” the pandemic. Boy, that’s rich coming from him, right?

“I would like to make something clear to the committee: He’s doing this for political reasons,” Fauci remarked.

Paul then replied by saying, “do you think your takedown of prominent epidemiologist was not political?”

Murray then cut Fauci’s allegations against Paul off by sending the hearing to questioning from other senators.

The fight between these two is the stuff of legend, folks. We’re blessed that Paul is in office and sticking up for the truth, taking it to Fauci every opportunity he gets.
