White House coronavirus adviser Dr Anthony Fauci on Sunday continued to call himself scientific as he rebuked those who had the courage to criticize him.
During a Sunday appearance on the CBS show “Facing the nation,” Fauci lamented the politicization of the US response to COVID-19, blaming Republicans who disagreed with him on this politicization.
In his interview, he said that since the dawn when he appeared on the national stage as America battled COVID-19, “There’s been a lot of politicization of that. And I think there’s a lot of misinformation, misinformation and outright lies about that. And that’s really unfortunate.”
He denounced “the politicization of it as completely outlandish. Politicize everything. It’s really politicizing public health, politicizing origins, politicizing it all – I think when we look back at this, we’ll see what we were thinking, what happened at that time. that point? ”
Fauci told interviewer Margaret Brennan that he had never done anything like play politics.
Lawmakers like Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz have called for Dr. Fauci to resign and be prosecuted over the course of COVID-19. Fauci scoffed at such threats, calling them “noise”.

“My work is completely focused on doing what I can with the talent and influence I have to make scientific advances that protect the health of the American public. So whoever turns out lies and threatens and all those movie theaters going on with some investigations and congressional committees and Rand Paul and all that other nonsense, it’s noise , Margaret, that’s the noise. I know what my job is,” he said.

“Senator Cruz told the attorney general that you should be prosecuted,” Brennan said, referring to the Texas Republican’s position that Fauci lied to Congress related to increased function research in China.
“Yes. I have to laugh about that. Should I be prosecuted? What happened on January 6, Senator?” he said.
“Do you think this makes you a scapegoat to deviate from President Trump?” Brennan then asked.
“Of course, you have to sleep to not figure it out,” he said.
“Well, there are a lot Republican Party Senators are targeting this,” Brennan said.
“That’s okay. I’m just doing my job, and I’m going to save lives, and they’re going to lie,” he said.
Fauci later said that anyone who was against him was against science.
“I mean, anyone who examines it carefully realizes that there is a distinctly unscientific taste to this thing. So if they stand up and criticize science, no one will know what they’re talking about. But if they got up and actually aimed the bullets at Tony Fauci, then people could tell there was a person there. There’s a face, there’s a voice you can recognize, you see him on television. So it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science because I represent science. Very dangerous. For me, it was more dangerous than the cable car and the arrows rushing at me. I won’t be here forever, but science will be here forever. And if you screw up science, you’re doing something very harmful to society long after I’m gone. And that’s what worries me,” he said, later adding, “And if you’re attacking me, you’re really attacking science. I mean, everyone knows that. “
The sheer arrogance of someone claiming THEY represent science. It is astounding and alarming that a public health official would even claim such a thing, especially one who has worked so hard to ignore the science of natural immunity. https://t.co/rcDezphVRR

Fauci says he understands Chinese way better than anyone else.
“The experience with China is that even when they have nothing to hide, they are still suspicious. No, that’s right. It’s true. I mean, that’s the truth. They are so, so many things that they don’t – whenever there’s an outbreak, they just want to be able to say there’s nothing to do. And even if they did nothing wrong, they still appear suspicious,” he said.
