Sen. Cruz Rips Fauci, Reveals Why He Thinks He Keeps Changing His Message
Sen. Ted Cruz is none too happy with Dr. Anthony Fauci (who among us is, right?) going on to accuse him now of editing his message and engaging in what he referred to as “pandemic politics” concerning the coronavirus pandemic after the doctor’s comments concerning the number of children who have ended up in the hospital during this whole mess.
Fauci, who is the chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden and heads up the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has been a target of “Cruz missiles” on Twitter after he did an interview with MSNBC in which he stated that there is a difference between the number of kids who are in the hospital with as opposed to those who are there because of COVID.
“And what we mean by that: If a child goes into the hospital, they automatically get tested for COVID and they get counted as a COVID-hospitalized individual, when, in fact, they may go in for a broken leg or appendicitis or something like that. So it’s over counting the number of children who are, quote, hospitalized with COVID as opposed to because of COVID,” Fauci went on to say during the interview.
Cruz later retweeted the clip with the caption, “Now Fauci says this? Is this because pandemic politics have changed for the Biden admin?”
The comments from Fauci come after a record surge of young children in the U.S. being hospitalized with the coronavirus.
An average of 378 children ages 17 and younger were admitted with COVID to hospitals, a jump from 66% the week before.
The Biden administration is also facing new criticism over how the omicron outbreak is being handled. This week, President Joe Biden told the nation’s governors that there is no “federal solution” for the pandemic, but instead, “this gets solved at a state level.”
“Ultimately gets down to where the rubber meets the road, and that’s where the patient is in need of help or preventing the need of help,” the president said.
What Fauci said is exactly what we’ve all been saying about hospitalizations and deaths ever since the pandemic started. He, and others like him on the left, viciously attacked folks for holding that sort of thinking at the time.
Funny how things change, right?
