The illustrious Dr. Anthony Fauci is testifying today — remotely, of course, since he recently tested positive for COVID — and, well, let’s just say he’s staying very much on-brand for Dr. Anthony Fauci.
As we told you earlier, GOP Sen. Rand Paul backed Fauci into an extremely uncomfortable intellectual corner over COVID vaccine boosters. But if we’re being completely honest, Fauci doesn’t really need any help getting backed into extremely uncomfortable intellectual corners. He quite adept at backing himself in.
He showed that skill off during this discussion of the origins of COVID:
Dr. Anthony Fauci gives an update on investigation into the origins of COVID-19: "We need to keep an open mind and have all possibilities be investigated, but the evidence from the virology community points strongly towards a natural occurrence. " pic.twitter.com/ui8VphACPE

We would very much like to see this “evidence” of which you speak, Dr. Fauci. Because without it, the case for the COVID pandemic stemming from a “natural occurrence” seems pretty weak.
This isn't true. https://t.co/Q2uowVEkLB

The evidence does not, in fact, point to that.

This is, of course, a lie. https://t.co/ZPVCRzoP9y

There’s significantly more evidence out there that supports the lab-leak hypothesis.
we have a ton of evidence saying this is straight up garbage, correct? https://t.co/cAdj4SVlf4

If you haven’t already seen Dr. Alina Chan’s thread on the subject, you should definitely check it out, starting here:
After 2 years, @WHO, US intelligence & more top experts+virologists acknowledge that a lab #OriginOfCovid is plausible and deserving of an investigation.
Yet, the attacks by scientists & pundits on those who called for an objective investigation of a lab origin has gotten worse.

We get that Anthony Fauci cares very much about his pride and about not looking like he made any mistakes, but at some point, if you refuse to just admit that you might’ve been wrong, you give no one any reason to trust your opinion on anything. Especially when the science — not The Science™, but actual science — doesn’t support your claims.
We lost any reason to respect Dr. Fauci a long time ago, but he seems determined to prove us right about him.
