It appears Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has just about had it with Dr. Anthony Fauci and his coronavirus recommendations. From last night on Laura Ingraham’s show:

This was in response to Dr. Fauci’s testimony on Tuesday where he said the country is going “in the wrong direction”:
"Clearly we are not in total control right now."

Now, before libs get all huffy with Lt. Gov. Patrick, Texas and Dr. Fauci aren’t actually that far apart. Here’s Dr. Fauci on bars:

Dr. Fauci also said, “I feel very strongly we need to do whatever we can to get the children back to school”:

Dr. Fauci also pointed out that our lockdowns never came close to lockdowns in Europe:
FAUCI: "When we shut down as a nation, in reality, only about 50% of the nation shut down… Many of the European countries, 90-95% of all activities were shut down… The countries in Europe and the other countries you have there had a much more uniformed response."
