On Tuesday, Senator Rand Paul said that Dr. Anthony Fauci epitomizes the condescending attitude elite leftists have toward the average man.
Paul made his comments during an interview with podcast host Brad Polumbo.
“We shouldn’t leave the future of mankind to the judgement of one bureaucrat.”@RandPaul joined me for an EXCLUSIVE interview on whether Dr. Fauci LIED to Congress—and the failures of government pandemic “experts” more broadly.
Paul On Fauci: ‘I Actually Am Starting To Question The Sincerity Of What He’s Doing’
After Paul and Fauci clashed on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, in which the senator and Fauci accused each other of lying to Congress, Paul told host Polumbo that he now doubts Fauci’s sincerity.
“In the beginning of this, I said repeatedly that I didn’t question his motives, that I thought his motives were good,” Paul said.
He continued, “I still think his motives are good, but I actually am starting to question the sincerity of what he’s doing, and that it’s not all for the betterment of mankind.”
Paul now says Fauci has been “covering his ass” since late July of last year, with the senator referencing Fauci’s private emails that Buzzfeed made public in June.
Sen. Paul said, “He became very alarmed that this could have come from the lab, he was getting reports of gain-of-function research, and he circled the wagon with this Peter Daszak.”
“And they did come together privately through email to talk about how to put the best spin on this,” Paul added.
Paul: Elites Like Fauci ‘Think That The Common Man’s Too Stupid To Make Their Own Decisions’
Paul then said Fauci was not only being untruthful, but an elitist.
“So I do think that he’s been giving us shades of the truth from the very beginning, but I also think that he is predictable as an elitist,” Paul continued.
The senator went on, “People on the Left believe they know better than you and they think that the common man’s too stupid to make their own decisions, so these decisions need to be made by their betters.”
Paul added, “And I truly think that he believes that he knows better.”
The libertarian-leaning Republican then said that Fauci is “okay with lying because he thinks the lie is for the betterment of mankind.”
“He calculates what the people need to hear and he tells them that regardless of whether it’s true,” Paul said.
