Senator Rand Paul erupted on Dr. Anthony Fauci during Congressional testimony on Capitol Hill Thursday; accusing the top NIH official of “covering his own a**” when asked about ‘Gain-of-Function’ research in Wuhan, China.
“Dr. Fauci, I don’t expect you today to admit that you approved of NIH funding for a gain of function research in Wuhan, but your repeated denials have worn thin,” Paul told Fauci.
“The facts are clear. The NIH did fund gain of function research in Wuhan despite your protestations,” continued Paul.
Rand Paul grilling Dr Fauci: "Until you accept responsibility, we're not going to get anywhere close to trying to prevent another lab leak of this dangerous sort of experiment. You won't admit that it's dangerous, and for that lack of judgment, I think it's time that you resign." pic.twitter.com/L1GNw9Nu9S

“Will you today finally take some responsibility for funding gain of function research in Wuhan?” Paul asked.

“Senator, with all due respect, I disagree with so many of the things that you’ve said,” Fauci fired-back.
“There’s the preponderance of evidence now points towards this coming from the lab and what you’ve done is change the definition on your website to try to cover your a–,” Paul claimed.
“You won’t admit that it’s dangerous. And for that lack of judgment, I think it’s time that you resign,” Paul said.

FAUCI 2020: No National Vaccine Mandate Because it ‘Encroaches’ on ‘Freedom of Choice’
Footage from 2020 surfaced on social media Friday showing senior COVID advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci saying he would not recommend vaccination mandates on a national level because it “encroaches upon a person’s freedom to make their own choice.”
“When a vaccine becomes available, are you going to suggest it’s mandated for Americans to get?” asked one questioner.
“I don’t think we’ve ever had a situation where you mandate it for the general population,” said Fauci. “I can see individual institutions mandating a vaccine… I don’t see it on a national level merely because of all the situations you have upon encroaching upon a person’s freedom to make their own choice of their own health.”

Fauci on Biden’s vaccine mandate:
"I think the president is being somewhat moderate in his demand, if you want to call it that."
— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) September 10, 2021
Joe Biden outright rejected criticism of his federal vaccine mandate Friday, telling Republicans to “have at it” should they choose to file lawsuits against his administration.
[Some Governors] are calling your vaccine requirements an overreach and are threatening to challenge it in the courts,” yelled one reporter.
“Have at it,” said the President. “I am so disappointed that -particularly some Republican governors- have been so cavalier with the health of these kids. So cavalier with the health of these communities”
“Have at it.” — President Biden to those governors threatening lawsuits over the vaccine-or-weekly-testing mandate for large businesses.

“My plan will extend the vaccination requirements that I previously issued in the health care field. Already, I’ve announced we’ll be requiring vaccinations that all nursing home workers who treat patients on Medicare and Medicaid, because I have that federal authority.,” said Biden Thursday night.
“Today, in total, the vaccine requirements in my plan will affect about 100 million Americans — two-thirds of all workers. And for other sectors, I issue this appeal: To those of you running large entertainment venues from sports arenas to concert venues to movie theaters, please require folks to get vaccinated or show a negative test as a condition of entry.,” he added.
“My message to unvaccinated Americans is this: What more is there to wait for? What more do you need to see? We’ve made vaccinations free, safe and convenient. The vaccine is F.D.A. approved. Over 200 million Americans have gotten at least one shot. We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin. And your refusal has cost all of us,” concluded the Commander-in-Chief.

100% KENNEDY: ‘Dr. Fauci Needs to Cut the Crap’ on Origin of COVID-19
Senator John Kennedy spoke with Sean Hannity Wednesday night on the growing questions surrounding the shady origins of COVID-19 when he urged Doctor Anthony Fauci to finally “cut the crap.”
“I know Dr. Fauci. I like Dr. Fauci. I respect Dr. Fauci. But Dr. Fauci needs to cut the crap. This isn’t about him. It’s not about his feelings. I’m sorry if his feelings were hurt. We’re not debating dance-moves on TikTok, we’re talking about millions of human lives,” said Kennedy.
“Dr. Fauci gave a lot of taxpayer money to the Wuhan Lab for Chinese scientists to research the Coronavirus,” he added.
