Over the last two days, the release of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s emails has lit the internet on fire. While the mainstream media have sought to bury the revelations and paint Fauci as a misunderstood hero, right-leaning outlets have been hard at work mining for information, exposing numerous, scandalous admissions.

As RedState reported, Fauci ignored warnings that COVID-19 looked engineered and was thanked by a funder of the Wuhan lab for dismissing the lab leak theory publicly.

He was a disaster during the AIDS epidemic and was essentially a mediocre careerist until COVID-19 showed up. His thirst for fame should have been a tip-off to everyone that the guy wasn’t going to “follow the science.” Regardless, while many in the GOP have amended their opinions on Fauci,
