Rand Paul RIPS Fauci: History Will Judge Him ‘Very Poorly’

On Wednesday, Senator Rand Paul appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” and trashed former National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Anthony Fauci for his gross mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Kentucky lawmaker declared that Fauci’s unwillingness to acknowledge the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s role as the origin of the coronavirus, in addition to his possible gain of function research, will cause history to recall him “very poorly.”

The FNC host recalled how Fauci stated that coronavirus did not come from a lab leak because the United States funded the lab, and then asked the senator if we are then responsible for the deaths of six million people around the world.

“Yeah, I think Fauci deserves culpability and history is going to judge him very poorly because he made the judgment to fund this research,” Paul replied. “It’s dangerous research. He doesn’t want to call it gain of function, but most other scientists do call it gain of function, in Wuhan, in an opaque totalitarian country. And in the end, there was a leak from the lab and millions of people died worldwide.”


He also argued that “this didn’t happen sort of accidentally. The leak may have been an accident butt the funding wasn’t an accident at all. Tony Fauci actually went around the system” which was set up with a committee to “judge whether this was dangerous and whether it should be funded. Tony Fauci exempted Wuhan from the committee. They never never went before the committee.”

Paul added, “The committee that was supposed to provide safety and review this never looked at the research in Wuhan because Tony Fauci gave them exemption. So he does bear responsibility for maybe one of the worse judgment errors in the history of modern medicine, or modern public health to fund this dangerous research.”
