Is there any doubt that Dr. Anthony Fauci very deliberately lied under oath when he insisted to Rand Paul that the U.S. hadn’t funded gain-of-function research on coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology? After The Intercept’s bombshell today, there shouldn’t be. Fauci lied to Senator Paul, and by extension he lied to the American people.
Yet author and progressive Unitarian pastor John Pavlovitz not only thinks Fauci did nothing wrong, but he thinks Fauci is a hero who deserves our worship, not our criticism:
Anthony Fauci has faithfully served the American people under seven presidents of both parties.
He knows far more than you do about most things.
You sound like a complete jackass when you attack him.#FauciLied is a hashtag for stupid or bad people. Which are you?

So, if we’re understanding John correctly, pointing out that Anthony Fauci lied makes you a jackass. It demonstrates that you’re either stupid or bad.
Seems to us that John Pavlovitz is the bad, stupid jackass here.
Imagine being naive enough to assume someone's prolonged career in politics is evidence of their honesty. https://t.co/t2fRVt3IQw

Bless it hard.
But… Fauci literally lied.
This isn't even the first lie, but it is the biggest.
What's your definition of "faithfully?" https://t.co/8ZqI5wwumO

Fauci lies under oath. Who are you working for John? https://t.co/gG0NfL1psg

If twitter has done anything, its removed the veil that our elites are somehow smarter, better, wiser then the rest of us.
This no doubt bothers them immensely, thus defensive reactions like this.
Fauci is a provable liar, the question is, is it criminal? https://t.co/PPJU1MEFAL

The uncontestable fact that he lied would call into question how "faithfully" he "served" us, I would think.
But then I'm not a bluecheck. https://t.co/MpnYqibN6u
