Fauci Flips Out After DeSantis Calls For Investigation Into Vaccines
The Republican Governor must have gotten under Dr. Anthony Fauci's skin. Fauci chastised Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, R, for asking the state Supreme Court to convene a grand jury to examine any "wrongdoing" related to the coronavirus vaccine.
DeSantis made his announcement on "The Ingraham Angle" on Tuesday, stating he was prepared to examine the effects of COVID-19 immunizations as far-left politicians pushed to require them throughout the country.
"At the end of the day, what we're looking for is to provide truth, to provide accurate data, and provide accurate analysis," DeSantis said.
Many media pundits slammed DeSantis' Florida Supreme Court request, including Fauci, who defended the vaccination on CNN's "At this Hour with Kate Bolduan" on Wednesday.
"I don’t have a clue, Kate, what he’s asking for. I mean, we have a vaccine that unequivocally is highly effective and safe, and has saved literally millions of lives. The Commonwealth Fund has come out with a report just this past week, that vaccinations that have been administered over this period of time, this last year and a half to two years, has saved 3.2 million lives, 18 million hospitalizations, and approximately $1 trillion in costs. So what’s the problem with vaccines? I mean, vaccines are lifesaving. So quite frankly, Kate, I’m not sure what — what they’re trying to do down there," Fauci said.
Although Fauci boasted about the immunizations' efficacy on CNN, he confessed in July on Fox News' "Your World" that the shots do not protect "overly effectively" against illness. Despite this, Fauci noted that the vaccination has been politicized and appealed for unity.
"It has been politicized. And it has been politicized in a way that has actually cost lives. Because if people don’t get vaccinated, which unequivocally is lifesaving, because of political ideology, or because of misinformation and disinformation, that costs us lives. And we just got to get the American public regardless of whether you lean left, you lean right, it doesn’t matter at all," Fauci said.
