Tony Fauci is having a really bad run over the past couple of weeks. Of course, not as bad as the country that adopted some of the suggestions he made which helped confuse and anger Americans over the past year but I digress
I’m actually surprised that I have not heard or read of Dr. Fauci being called science fiction before Trump just hit him with this. I’m sure that one of my colleagues here at Red State that have been covering this COVID-19 China cover-up might have, but I might have missed it.

He was at it again on Meet the Press with Chuck Todd, blasting attacks on him as “attacking science.”

I guess Brad Pitt playing him on Saturday Night Live really did go to his head.
Donald Trump was not having any of this and issued this statement earlier today that pretty
