A 30-second clip of disgraced chief medical advisor to the president, Dr. Anthony Fauci, is going viral.
Fauci’s long history of hypocrisy, flip-flops, and failed predictions have destroyed his value as a public-health official.
Making matters worse, Fauci has directly lied to the American people, which has completely eradicated any trust or confidence in him.
This fact has been difficult for Dr. Fauci to stomach. He was utterly flabbergasted during an interview to learn that Americans don’t trust him.
As a result, Republican Senator Rand Paul is running a campaign to “fire Dr. Fauci” and asks for political donations to support this cause.
Fauci attempted to criticize Paul over this initiative, but it quickly blew up in his face as another meme of Fauci went viral on social media.

Fauci accused Paul of “making a catastrophic epidemic for your political gain.”
Paul immediately fired back, “You have politically attacked your colleagues, and in a politically reprehensible way, you have attacked their reputation.”
Paul is 100% correct.
Fauci once claimed that everyone who disagrees with him is lying and doesn’t care about saving lives. “I’m going to be saving lives and they’re going to be lying,” he told CBS.
Fauci also said any criticism of him is a criticism of science. “They’re really criticizing science because I represent science,” he said, adding that it’s “dangerous” for the American people to ever question or criticize him.
“Attacking me is attacking science.” – Fauci
Translation – I am god.

From Western Journal:
While Fauci tried to demonize Paul, he did not gain much support on social media. Instead, many users used an image of Fauci during his rant against him.
During his accusation against Paul, Fauci held up an image of the website saying “Fire Dr. Fauci.” Some savvy Twitter users were able to capture the moment and make it appear as if Fauci was calling for his own firing.

Even Paul himself got in on the fun, joking that he and Fauci “finally agreed on something in our Senate hearing today.”
