> “Senator Paul, you do not know what you’re talking about, quite frankly, and I want to say that officially. You do not know what you’re talking about,” Fauci said to Paul when the Kentucky Republican suggested that the US’s top infectious disease expert had been dishonest about whether the National Institutes of Health funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China. Paul effectively accused Fauci of lying to Congress about research in China on coronaviruses. > “I totally resent the lie you are now propagating, senator,” Fauci went on to say to Paul. “Those viruses are molecularly impossible to result in SARS-CoV-2 … You are implying what we did was responsible for the deaths of individuals. If anybody is lying here, senator, it is you.” Get him, Dr. Fauci! Rand Paul is such a smarmy weasel, and deserves to be called out on it! This is a guy, for crying out loud, who held up 9/11 funding for First Responders, just to feign outrage over the costs, even though his delay didn’t change a thing. Everything he does is in bad faith and seeks to glorify one thing—Rand Paul! 🤨🙄😡

Good luck Fauci. Every Fed Chairman has been trying to get Rand Paul to admit he doesn’t know anything about what he’s talking about for years. Most conservative politicians are educated from Fox News and don’t know anything anymore.

The official statement from the NIH: “Senator Rand Paul, who has practiced eye-care in Kentucky, but has failed to achieve any kind of board certification, EVEN in Ophthalmology…. clearly doesn’t know shit about epidemiology, virology, or really anything else. But he’ll lie to you about it, just like he lied about being board-certified.”

This video is a political Rorschach test. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see an article linking the same video in /r/Conservative with the headline “Sen. Rand Paul rips into Fauci”
