I Don’t Understand Fauci’s Response Here

Fauci rips Cruz over Jan. 6 when asked about DOJ prosecutions | Washington Examiner

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases quipped about the Capitol riot on Jan. 6 when asked about Cruz, one of several GOP lawmakers who has attacked him.

"Yeah. I have to laugh at that. I should be prosecuted? What happened on Jan. 6, senator?" Fauci quipped during an appearance Sunday on CBS News's Face the Nation.

What’s Fauci’s point? That people aren’t being prosecuted for Jan. 6? That’s clearly not true. In fact, it’s quite easy to argue that they’re being over-prosecuted. But whether you agree with that or not, people are clearly being prosecuted.

Or maybe he means that Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) should be prosecuted? What for? What did he do?

Or maybe he’s trying to make some link between the China virus and Jan. 6? Huh? What?

There’s just nothing about this statement that makes any sense at all.

And then this last bit seems particularly arrogant:

“Anybody who's looking at this carefully realizes that there's a distinct anti-science flavor to this…" Fauci said. "They're really criticizing science because I represent science. That's dangerous. To me, that's more dangerous than the slings and the arrows that get thrown at me.”

Le Science, c’est moi!
