Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) are saying Dr. Anthony Fauci, a top medical adviser to President Joe Biden, has become dangerous with his pronunciations after he claimed to “represent science.”
Appearing on CBS’ “Face the Nation” over the weekend, Fauci said that Republican senators who have criticized him are in the wrong.
“That’s OK. I’m just going to do my job. And I’m going to be saving lives, and they’re going to be lying,” Fauci said.
“They’re really criticizing science, because I represent science. That’s dangerous. To me, that’s more dangerous than the slings and the arrows that get thrown at me. And if you damage science, you are doing something very detrimental to society long after I leave,” he added later.
Fauci also specifically went after Paul, lumping him with others he said “spins lies and threatens and all that theater,” and also suggested Cruz should be probed for objecting to electoral results from a state on Jan. 6.
