Kennedy’s remarks follow an interview on MSNBC where a clearly defensive Fauci criticized any attack on him as an “attack on science” itself.
“People want to fire me or put me in jail for what I did,” the White House chief medical adviser said. “Namely, follow the science. “
“The attacks on me, quite frankly, are attacks on science,” he continued. “All the things that I have talked about, consistently, from the very beginning, have been fundamentally based on science. Sometimes these things were inconvenient truths for people.

Fauci, the media darling of the pandemic, has come under increasing scrutiny after a theory that COVID-19 leaked from a laboratory in Wuhan province, China, gained traction.
Fauci has frequently dismissed the idea, while admitting it’s a possibility.
“That’s right, the ‘bat lady’ from the Wuhan lab – the one that received funding via an American subcontractor from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Fauci – experimented with furin sites. to make coronaviruses more infectious to humans. ” https://t.co/wQKdE265UJ

Emails from Fauci
The recently published emails showed the changing views of Dr Fauci, or as he call him, through the “scientific process”, on various topics including the theory of laboratory leaks and the effectiveness of the use of masks during the pandemic.
In an email, he requests that an assistant review an attachment allegedly referring to Ralph Baric, a US-based virologist who has collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Fauci had said Baric was not involved in the “gain-of-office” research. The file was titled: “Baric, Shi, et al – Nature Medicine – SARS Gain of Function.pdf.” “
Kennedy clashed with Fauci on research on “gain of office”, asking the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases if it was possible that grants from the United States could have funded research on the gain of office in Wuhan.
“How do you know that they didn’t lie to you and that they didn’t use the money for job research anyway?” Kennedy asked during testimony in Congress.
“How do you know they didn’t do the research and put it on their website?” He inquired further.
“There is no way to guarantee this,” Fauci replied, “but in our experience with beneficiaries, including Chinese beneficiaries, with whom we have interacted for a very long time, these are very competent and trustworthy scientists. “
Dr Fauci admits that there is “no guarantee” that the Chinese have not used funding for research on gain-of-office.
KENNEDY: “So don’t you think the Chinese would lie to you?”

Kennedy’s interview with Hannity featured other notable liners against Fauci.
“We’re not debating dance moves on TikTok here,” Kennedy joked of Fauci’s legitimate criticism. “We are talking about millions of human lives.
“Since day one, Dr Fauci and his expert friends have been telling us, look, the virus has happened naturally. It went from a bat to a host, then to humans, ”he continued. “Well, it’s been a year. Where is the proof? Where’s the smoking bat?
Kennedy went on to say that the information released was beginning to “undermine public health.”
“People’s trust in public health, and the American people are going to end up trusting Dr Pepper more than Dr Fauci.”
