Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) called for Dr. Anthony Fauci to be removed from office committing “malpractice” during Monday’s edition of Fox News Channel’s “Fox News Primetime.”
According to Breitbart News, the doctor and Kentucky Senator didn’t pull any punches calling for Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to be taken out of his position of power.
“But all along this has been — and this is Fauci’s main mistake,” Paul said. He said, let’s treat everyone the same.
Universal treatment whether you’re 10 years old or 80 years old. And that, frankly, is malpractice. Because you are 1,000 times more likely to die if you are 80 than if you are 10, this is a huge mistake.
It’s an unforgivable mistake by Fauci, and it’s one of the reasons why we need to quit taking his advice. He needs to be dismissed from office. Because he is telling you things that aren’t true.”
“About half of the United States has probably had COVID now,” he continued. “He is not counting that at all. He is saying we are not vaccinated. We are not vaccinated. That’s not true either.
“Ninety-five percent of people over 65 are vaccinated. 95 percent. That’s a huge success. And then we also have a lot of people who have gotten it naturally. Ninety-three percent of the public has gotten either vaccinated or gotten it naturally. That’s a huge success.”
Fauci has continued in his position as an adviser to the White House on the COVID-19 pandemic and has come under increasing scrutiny for NIH’s funding of the lab where the virus is thought to have originated, with questions arising as to whether he has been ethically compromised for his involvement with the Wuhan laboratory.
