Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) outed Dr. Anthony Fauci as a liar and a “punk” when he appeared on Newsmax TV on Tuesday to talk about Fauci’s testimony in a congressional hearing that day.
“He did lie to Congress, which is a crime,” Cawthorn said of Fauci, then added, “He is a punk who is trying to further his own career, make himself wealthy and famous. But let me tell you, he deserves neither wealth nor fame because he has destroyed countless small businesses.”
Cawthorn said he thought Fauci deserved to be charged for lying to Congress because “he has taken years of development away from young children” and “has shackled entire states and destroyed their economies.”
“Anthony Fauci does not have the best interests of the American people at his heart,” he continued. “I believe he is a pawn for the Chinese government . . . . It’s disgusting, it’s wrong, and 4 million people are dead all around the world because of it.”
If Cawthorn is right, Fauci presents himself as the voice of science and reason, but he is hiding some insidious ulterior motives and some egregious past actions behind that calm demeanor.
