Fauci Comes Out Swinging Against Critics Defends COVID-19 Decisions

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Chief White House medical adviser, came out swinging against his critics and defended his actions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

During an interview on the New York Times podcast “Sway,” with host Kara Swisher, Fauci called the criticism of him “craziness.”

Fauci defended his positions that changed over the past year as being based in science. He said, “It is essential as a scientist that you evolve your opinion and your recommendations based on the data as it evolves.”

Also, Fauci added, “And that’s the reason why I say people who then criticize me about that are actually criticizing science.”

CNN host Brian Stelter quoted Fauci in a Tweet.

Critics pounced on Fauci.

Some pointed out Fauci was referring to himself in the third person while defending himself.

Others used his recently released emails to challenge the position he was describing in the podcast.

Fauci is aggressively trying to defend his actions by wrapping science around himself claiming essentially he was following the science.

In reality, as pointed out above and elsewhere, Fauci was not following science according to his own emails.

For example, early last year he cast doubt on the lab leak hypothesis in public while his emails showed he was concerned about that possibility.

Unfortunately, with the media and Democrats circling the wagons around Fauci, he will not be held accountable and interviews like “Sway” will only provide talking points to his defenders.
