During an interview with far-left MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace, Dr. Anthony Fauci claimed that he was never “anti-Trump,” but then went on to slander Trump supporters for not understanding how science evolves.
The comments from Fauci came as he tried describing how his science “recommendations” changed from the Trump administration to now.
Fauci said, “Yeah, I mean there is no doubt there are people out there, for one reason or another, resent me for what I did in the last administration, which was not anything that was anti-Trump at all. It was just trying to get the right information, to try and get the right data. What they didn’t seem to understand —I guess that it is understandable that they didn’t understand it— that science is a dynamic process.”
He added, “So something that you know in January—you make a recommendation or a comment about it. But as you get more and more information, the information leads you to change. Because that is what science is, it is a self-correcting process. So when you hear someone say something at one point, then two or three months later, if you stick with what you said at the original time when you had one-fifth the amount of data that you have now, I think that would be inappropriate. It is appropriate, although sometimes it is difficult for people to understand, how as you learn more and more, you have to continue to evolve with the data. That is what I was trying to do, is always tell the truth on the basis of what the data is. It was never deliberately something against the president.”
Fauci has been facing intense backlash in recent days after his private emails were discovered.
In one email, Dr. Fauci was told that the COVID-19 pandemic “looked engineered” yet decided to stay quiet and instead promoted Chinese propaganda that there was no evidence the coronavirus could have been engineered in a lab.
The new revelation is damning for Fauci considering it appears to prove he is not credible.
In an email from infectious disease expert and professor at Scripps Research Kristian G. Andersen on January 31, 2020, Fauci was told that some of the features of the virus “(potentially) looked engineered.”
“Yes, I saw this earlier today and both Eddie and myself are actually quoted in it,” the email from Andersen began. “It’s a great article, but the problem is that our phylogenetic analyses aren’t able to answer whether the sequences are unusual at individual residues, except if they are completely off. On a phylogenetic tree the virus looks totally normal and the close clustering with bats suggest that bats serve as the reservoir. The unusual features of the virus make up a really small part of the genome (<0.1%) so one has to look really closely at all the sequences to see that some of the features (potentially) look engineered.”
The revelation is extremely concerning because Fauci has been promoting Chinese and media propaganda over the past year, stating that there is no evidence suggesting that the virus could have come from a lab. This now appears to be a total lie.
