Dr. Anthony Fauci has been very resistant to the idea that he had done anything wrong in regard to our children during the pandemic.
Most of us would disagree.
Once again, however, Fauci has flip-flopped on this issue.
It’s About Time
Fauci was speaking at The Atlantic Festival, a media festival thrown by the publication.
Before fessing up, Fauci deflected blame on social media for making his guidance so divisive.
He stated, “When you have a divisiveness in society where every time you say something, you have X number of people with social media looking to attack it, that adds to the understandable confusion when you’re dealing with an evolving outbreak.”
Or maybe it was that he was clearly ignoring studies that proved locking down the kids was not the best option.
He continued, “Of course, when you make recommendations, if the primary goal when you’re dealing with a situation where the hospitals were being overrun in New York, intensive care units were being put in hallways, you have to do something that’s rather draconian.
“And sometimes when you do draconian things, it has collateral negative consequences, just like when you shut things down, even temporarily, it does have deleterious consequences on the economy, on the schoolchildren. You know that.”
It was not that long ago that Fauci sat before Congress saying that we still did not know if any permanent harm was done to our children.
My guess here is that Senator Paul (R-KY) is already ordering a copy of that tape to use against Fauci for when Republicans take control back of Congress.
