In an incredibly telling declaration Sunday, Anthony Fauci announced that anyone who doesn’t like him or what he says is ‘denying reality’ and spreading ‘conspiracy theories’.
Fox News anchor Chris Wallace told Fauci that he has become “a polarizing figure,” and that “critics accuse you of sending mixed messages.”
Wallace continued, “There’s allegations that you helped fund dangerous research at the Wuhan lab,” before asking “why do you think you’ve become so controversial? And honestly, do you think there’s anything you have done that has contributed to that?”
Fauci replied “I can’t think of anything, but I’m sure some people will.”
He continued, “I have always stood for making science, data, and evidence be what we guide ourselves by. And I think people who feel differently, who have conspiracy theories, who deny reality, looking them straight in the eye, those are people that don’t particularly care for me.”
“That’s understandable,” Fauci further proclaimed, adding “Because what I do — and I try very hard — is to be guided by the truth.”
“And sometimes, the truth becomes inconvenient for some people. So they react against me. That just is what it is. There’s not much I can do about that,” Fauci added.
