Rep. Thomas Massie completely tore Dr. Anthony Fauci and the CDC a new one, encouraging Americans to “question” their scientific conclusions as it pertains to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Once you realize the personal ethical standards of policy makers like Dr Fauci and many of those at the CDC lead them to comfortably misrepresent scientific data in order to achieve public policy goals, it is not just your prerogative to question their ‘science,’ it is your duty,” Massie posted up on Twitter.

Massie’s comments come as Fauci said Sunday that it is “possible” people may still be wearing masks into 2022 despite the country returning to a “degree of normality.”
“If you combine getting most of the people in the country vaccinated with getting the level of virus in the community very, very low, then I believe you are going to be able to say, you know, for the most part we don’t necessarily have to wear masks,” Fauci said. “When it goes way down, and the overwhelming majority of the people in the population are vaccinated, then I would feel comfortable in saying you know we need to pull back on the masks, we don’t need to have masks.”
While masking could continue into 2022, the infectious disease expert signaled optimism that life could be somewhat normal by the “end of the year.”
“As we get into the fall and the winter, by the end of the year, I agree with [President Biden] completely that we will be approaching a degree of normality,” Fauci stated. “It may or may not be precisely the way it was in November of 2019, but it’ll be much much better than we’re doing right now.”
But, of course, Dr. Doom went on to say that different variants of the virus could come around and muck everything up. Which is probably what the man is hoping for, given the coronavirus pandemic made him famous.
“That’s the reason why we’ve got to be careful,” he said. “Because you have variance that you need to deal with. There are so many other things that would make a projection that I give you today on this Sunday, wind up not being the case six months from now.”
Good on Massie for standing up for what’s right. It’s definitely time to question the conclusions this guy and the CDC are coming to, especially since they go back and forth nearly all the time.
