During an interview on CBS’ Face The Nation, Fauci claimed that he represents science, and criticizing him is “really criticizing science.”
Fauci said, “Anybody who’s looking at this carefully realizes that there’s a distinct anti-science flavor to this, so if they get up and criticize science, nobody’s going to know what they’re talking about. But if they get up and really aim their bullets at Tony Fauci, well people can recognize that there’s a person there, so it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science because I represent science.”
Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, elected officials who literally represent the will of their constituents, blasted Fauci for his claim of representing the entire body of “science.”
The absolute hubris of someone claiming THEY represent science. It’s astounding and alarming that a public health bureaucrat would even think to claim such a thing, especially one who has worked so hard to ignore the science of natural immunity. https://t.co/rcDezphVRR

Fauci is an unelected technocrat who has distorted science and facts in order to exercise authoritarian control over millions of Americans.
He lives in a liberal world where his smug “I REPRESENT science” attitude is praised.
Here are the facts:

In the same interview, Fauci laughed off Ted Cruz’s suggestion that Fauci should be prosecuted for lying to Congress over the alleged gain of function research conducted by his team.
Cruz had tweeted, “It’s a crime to knowingly lie to Congress, so I asked AG Garland if he’d appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Fauci.” To that, Fauci responded, “What happened on January 6th, senator?”
