During an interview on Tuesday, Senator Rand Paul explained why he feels that Dr. Anthony Fauci is so condescending towards the "average" person.
“In the beginning of this, I said repeatedly that I didn’t question his motives, that I thought his motives were good. I still think his motives are good, but I actually am starting to question the sincerity of what he’s doing, and that it’s not all for the betterment of mankind,” Paul said, in refernce to the heated exchange that he had with Fauci on Tuesday.
He said he believes Fauci has "been covering his ass" since last July, judging by the information in Fauci's private emails that were leaked by Buzzfeed.
“He became very alarmed that this could have come from the lab, he was getting reports of gain-of-function research, and he circled the wagon with this Peter Daszak,” Paul continued. “And they did come together privately through email to talk about how to put the best spin on this.”
“So I do think that he’s been giving us shades of the truth from the very beginning, but I also think that he is predictable as an elitist,” he said. “People on the Left believe they know better than you and they think that the common man’s too stupid to make their own decisions, so these decisions need to be made by their betters. And I truly think that he believes that he knows better.”
Paul added that Fauci is “okay with lying because he thinks the lie is for the betterment of mankind," and that he "calculates what the people need to hear and he tells them that regardless of whether it’s true."
“We now have a groupthink on COVID because Fauci controls all the funding,” he noted.
