The criticism of Dr. Anthony Fauci for inconsistencies in his COVID-19 guidance continued Monday as Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) joined the fray during a Fox&Friends interview.
“Yes, Tony Fauci is not acting as a scientist or a doctor anymore,” he said. “He’s acting as a Democratic Party activist in a white lab coat. Why doesn’t he tell us what science — what data backs up the Biden administration’s stupid mask mandate for airports and airplanes? I mean, are you more likely to get the coronavirus at an airport than you are a shopping mall or an airplane with its massive filtration systems?”
Cotton questioned the necessity of some of the things people have done because of Fauci’s influence, like kicking an autistic child off an airplane because he couldn’t wear a mask.
“We shouldn’t allow Tony Fauci and Facebook to determine what we can and cannot say about this virus because from the beginning, he’s been giving politicized advice,,” Cotton went on. “He’s admitted that he’s changed his advice based on — or — what would be herd immunity levels. Not based on what he thinks he sees in the data but what he thinks the American people are ready to hear. Why doesn’t he just tell us what the facts are?”
That is a very good question, Sen. Cotton, and one that millions of Americans would sure like to hear the answer to. I get the feeling it’s something along the lines of, “You’re too stupid to know what’s best for you.”
