Republican anger with Fauci reaches new heights - AOL via Yahoo News

Republican rage directed at Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical adviser on the coronavirus pandemic to Presidents Trump and Biden, seemed to reach new heights over the weekend, with former Trump administration trade adviser Peter Navarro claiming the renowned physician and scientist has likely "killed millions of Americans."

"For whatever reasons, Fauci wanted to weaponize that virus, and he is the father of it. He has killed millions of Americans if that thing came from the lab. Now it's 99.999 percent sure it did," Navarro told former Trump White House strategist Steve Bannon regarding an unproven theory that the coronavirus originated in a lab in Wuhan, China, that had received funds from the National Institutes of Health, where Fauci is director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

For the better part of the past year, every time Fauci speaks on the pandemic, some Republicans take to social media to decry him. On Sunday, Fauci's appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" sparked just such a reaction. Asked if Americans might need to wear masks seasonally to prevent the continued spread of COVID-19, Fauci responded, "You know, that's quite possible."


Do you know how exhausting it is to read the news and consistently feel like you've entered a parallel universe where the lowest common denominator gets all the attention, says the dumbest things sans evidence, then gets lapped up by the masses like it were super charged sugar water?

I can understand the outrage fatigue this side would have because of these people. And Kelli Ward opened her vapid, empty mouth to "fart" out a turd of wisdom too. And she's running to replace term limited Governor Ice Cream Flinger. But my state has Paul Goser and my soon to be opponent, the odious Joel John. . .the Republican barrel literally has no bottom.

1. This is bullshit, Obama CUT OFF Gain of Function grants in 2014

They were reinstated in late 2017, under guess which administration? They’re trying to throw the blame on Fauci because he has been in every administration since Reagan. And Fauci probably would have had not been in charge of approving GOF research. All of this is operating under the extravagant and salacious conjecture that GOF had anything to do with Covid-19, so far there is no evidence of it.

The Dems need to get ahead of this story before the idiots in the right-wing world try and pin it on Fauci, the narrative needs to be that IF this was due to a GOF experiment gone wrong it’s on the Trump administration, they’re the ones who restarted the grants. The Obama administration paused it in 2014 over just these sort of concerns.

4. Fox/Tucker was pushing this lie earlier. "Fauci was paying a lab in Wuhan to produce the virus.*"

* A member of the Trump administration Navarro, told Newmax's Steve Bannon. Another "big lie" for the
MAGA mouth breathers.

5. Meghan McCain on The View ...

She has often called Dr Faucci a liar and demanded that he be fired.

As best I can tell it is because as knowledge about the virus grew his position has evolved over time.

6. I call our current era

the Post-Springer Era...all the lowest forms of thinking and behavior have been normalized and all the people who once had a a tiny vestigial sense of shame about how scummy they are have risen to the top of the cultural swamp like an impenetrable blanket of toxic algae.
