Fauci Criticized After Suggesting CDC's Authority Greater Than Court's

America, the greatest Democracy that this planet has ever known, has not survived and thrived this long by accident, or by luck.  Our Founding Fathers developed a system for the ages, ready to withstand even the most salacious affronts to her sanctity.

In this government, we rely heavily and ultimately on the judicial system to process claims of authority, as it was designed and as it has succeeded for centuries.

Apparently, Dr. Anthony Fauci doesn’t quite grasp this concept.

During the segment on the streaming show “Red & Blue,” CBS anchor Robert Costa asked Fauci, “Do you personally agree or disagree with her interpretation of public health law?”

Fauci responded, “Well, I clearly disagree, I mean those types of things should be decided as a public health issue by the public health organizations, in this case the CDC. This is a public health matter, not a judicial matter.”

“So, obviously the CDC will abide by the order of the court because it’s a legal obligation,” he continued. “But one of the problems that we have there is that the principle of a court overruling a public health judgment by a qualified organization like the CDC is disturbing in the precedent in might send,” Fauci concluded.

Twitter users were less than thrilled with Fauci’s interpretation of governmental authority.

Rep. Dan Bishop, R-N.C., responded on Twitter, “What’s ‘disturbing’ is that Fauci and the bureaucrats think they are above the law.”

Conservative radio host Mark Davis tweeted, “Stupidity or willful blindness? The #CDC is entitled to whatever opinions it wishes; it does not have right to impose them through law into the interiors of aircraft.”

He added, “This is why #JudgeMizelle was right; none of this is about anyone’s view of masks. It’s about the rule of law.”

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, R-W.V., tweeted, “Fauci may want to take a little time and review the Constitution and the case law. The CDC must follow the law just like any other agency or person.”

Morrisey then wrote, “We must fight against the woke-left which appears hell bent on using Covid to control people as long as possible. #NoToFauci.”

Dr. Fauci has faced significant criticism throughout the coronavirus pandemic, and it doesn’t appear as though this will be changing anytime soon.
