The feud between Ted Cruz and Dr. Fauci escalates in Sunday morning TV appearance

The fully vaccinated Republican members of Congress who continue to make political hay by attacking the most prominent public health official in the nation are truly hypocritical and reprehensible but to Dr. Anthony Fauci they are just “noise” to be ignored as he stays true to his mission of trying to protect Americans from the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic and its multiplying virus variants.

That doesn’t mean, however, that the renowned epidemiologist won’t strike back at his politically-motivated partisan critics.

Dr. Fauci made an appearance on CBS News‘s Face The Nation this morning where he was asked to respond to the calls by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) to Attorney General Merrick Garland that Fauci be prosecuted for the role he’s played in the nation’s fight against the pandemic.

Fauci may have responded with a laugh, but his words indicate that he’s no longer tempering his reactions to GOP attacks on his work and his credibility.

“I have to laugh at that,” the Chief Medical Advisor to the President chortled.

“I should be prosecuted? What happened on January 6, senator?” Dr. Fauci pointedly shot back.

Fauci went on to say that “you’d have to be asleep” not to recognize that the Republican assault on him was simply an attempt to make him a scapegoat for Donald Trump’s failures in properly combating the COVID pandemic during his time in office.

Still, Dr. Fauci is unfazed by the partisan blitzkrieg being waged against him by the GOP politicians.

“That’s okay. I’m just gonna do my job, and I’m gonna be saving lives, and they’re gonna be lying,” he said, putting things in the proper perspective.

The dangers of politicizing matters of life and death are very much on the infectious disease specialist’s mind.

“Anybody who is 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 gonna know what they’re talking about,” he said.

“But if they get up and really aim their bullets at Tony Fauci, well, people can recognise that there’s a person there. So it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science, because I represent science,” Dr. Fauci added.

“That’s dangerous,” he warned. “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 that is very detrimental to society long after I leave,” Dr. Fauci cautioned.

America is lucky to have someone as experienced and knowledgeable as Dr. Fauci advising multiple administrations on how to best confront the continuing ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic with its expanding variants.

It’s unfortunate that this dedicated scientist is facing undeserved political assaults by preening, self-important scientific idiots who happen to be Republican members of Congress.

It’s obvious that these numbskulls care about little beyond their own political and financial success and should be ignored as much as the good doctor has in his refusal to be deterred in his mission to spread scientific truth to the nation’s populace.
