Dr. Tony Fauci has a giant problem on his hands.
Donald Trump and other Republicans are beginning to cast doubt on Fauci’s strategy to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.
And Dr. Fauci was just asked one question that exposed a secret he’s been hiding.
Dr. Fauci expected to get another set of softball questions when he testified before a Democrat-controlled House subcommittee.
During these appearances, Dr. Fauci lets Democrats do his dirty work by asking him leading questions that “force” him to contradict Donald Trump and criticize the administration’s response to the coronavirus outbreak.
But Dr. Fauci was not prepared for conservative Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan to grill him over the politicization of science and how the left uses it to reward its allies and punish its enemies.
Jordan asked Fauci a simple question: Does the coronavirus spread at protests and if so, should the government curtail protests?
Fauci tried to dodge the question and claim you should avoid crowds in general, but Jordan demanded a specific answer as to if the government was being unfair in banning church services, but allowing mass gatherings for Black Lives Matter protests.
“I’m not favoring anybody over anybody,” Fauci responded. “I’m just making a statement that’s a broad statement, that avoid crowds of any type, no matter where you are, because that leads to the acquisition and transmission. And I don’t judge one crowd versus another crowd. When you’re in a crowd, particularly if you’re not wearing a mask, that induces the spread.”
Jordan pointed out that the Black Lives Matter “protests” weren’t really protests, but instead violent political riots.
“There’s been no violence I can see at church. I haven’t seen people during a church service go out and harm police officers or burn buildings, but we know that for 63 days, nine weeks, it’s been happening in Portland,” Jordan added. “One night in Chicago 49 officers were injured, but no limits to protests but boy, you can’t go to church on Sunday.”
Fauci again tried to dodge Jordan’s questioning, claiming he didn’t opine on such things.
“I don’t know how many times I can answer that,” Dr. Fauci added, trying to evade the question. “I’m not going to opine on limiting anything.”
But that is a giant lie.
Dr. Fauci has openly spoken out about canceling the NFL season and the World Series.
If there is one thing Dr. Fauci loves doing, it is giving his opinion on anything and everything he is asked so long as he gets to trash Donald Trump.
Fauci has proven himself to be a sly political operator these last several months.
Dr. Fauci pulled off advocating an economically ruinous shutdown strategy that damaged Donald Trump’s re-election chances without coming across as a partisan Democrat.
So Dr. Fauci knows where his bread is buttered.
He did not want to criticize the Black Lives Matter riots for acting as vectors of disease spread to avoid offending Democrats and his fans in the “resistance” media.
