Hollywood seems to love Dr. Fauci.
But there are a few dissenters.
And a huge Hollywood actor just asked Dr. Fauci two questions he’s afraid to answer.
This has not been a good week for Dr. Anthony Fauci.
His emails being released provided rock-solid proof of his many inconsistencies, and outright lies that he has made over the past year.
Fauci is hoping people forget about his emails, but there are a number of major figures making sure this scandal doesn’t go away.
Among them is veteran actor James Woods, who has been in Hollywood for decades.
Following the emails being released, the Hollywood actor hammered Fauci over how he handled the coronavirus over the past year.
“What did he know? When did he know it?” he wrote on Twitter, alongside a picture of Fauci.
This line of questioning is something Fauci has been avoiding giving a straight answer to for a long time.
But his released emails are making it more difficult for him to skirt questions than ever.
One of the emails shows that a top infectious disease expert emailed Fauci worrying that the virus could “look engineered.”
Another email also shows Fauci explaining that a “typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through the material.”
Of course, this was at a time when he was encouraging Americans to wear masks in public.
But he never once gave this information that one would think would be valuable, considering states were enacting mask mandates, forcing people to wear masks.
Most notable was an email showing NIAID Principal Deputy Director Hugh Auchincloss responding to an email from Fauci stating, “writing it is ‘essential’ the two speak together about a scientific paper about ‘experiments . . . performed before the gain of function pause.’”
This is troubling considering that Fauci has outright denied any U.S. funding of gain of function research, which many believe to be the cause of the coronavirus outbreak.
Sen. Rand Paul grilled him on this in a Senate hearing, when Fauci, who was under oath, outright denied any U.S. funding of such research.
If the email is true, it shows that Fauci likely committed perjury.
But if that is proven, it is unlikely he will face punishment, considering the Left has a history of letting their friends off the hook for crimes regular people, or political opponents would be charged with.
