Fox News host Neil Cavuto came to the defense of Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday, asking why he’s become so “vilified.”
Fauci went off on Senator Rand Paul during a Tuesday Senate hearing, after the Kentucky Republican accused him of lying to Congress about the U.S. funding gain of function research in China. Fauci said, “Senator Paul, you do not know what you’re talking about, quite frankly, and I want to say that officially. You do not know what you’re talking about!”
Cavuto spoke with Dr. Bob Lahita hours later and said the hearing “turned into a circus.”
“But this pile-on on Dr. Fauci,” the Fox host said, “what he knew, when he knew it, whether he had sinister plans… I thought he was thinking in real time, didn’t have a handle on stuff, was following it as you were at the time. Do you think this pile-on is fair?”
