National Institutes of Allergy & Infectious Disease Director Anthony Fauci and different high-profile public well being officers have been deified by the institution — and haven’t been held to account for flip-flopping, their suggestions’ impact on the financial system and social norms, or their continued ignoring of different remedies, Senator Ron Johnson, R-Wis., advised Fox News on Monday.

On “Tucker Carlson Tonight”, Johnson commented on the continued reverence given by a lot of the institution and the general public to Fauci, 80, who’s one in all President Joe Biden’s prime COVID-19 advisers and served the same function for President Donald Trump.

“[H]e has been set up on a pedestal and basically – I refer to them as the COVID gods,” Johnson stated.

“You (Carlson) laid out the case quite nicely: the lies, the flip-flopping — but I think the question you have to ask about Tony Fauci – and quite honestly the other people in our health care agencies– is have their policy prescriptions worked?”

Johnson famous there have been 700,000 deaths from the pandemic, along with trillions in new federal spending, “economic devastation” and deepening divisions between the American folks partly on account of blanket federal mandates crafted by Biden and his advisers.

“We are at each other’s throats now with these divisive mandates are going to destroy our health care system, destroy our military readiness,” he stated, because the Pentagon is instituting obligatory injections of the coronavirus vaccine for servicemembers. 

Johnson stated that the mandates and coverage prescriptions proceed to change into extra draconian as extra proof comes out that they’ve been general a “miserable failure”.

He referred to as Fauci and the feds’ “biggest blunder” their refusal to think about early remedies, a few of which have been extensively censored by Big Tech and downplayed by the media.

“Now they are all hopping on board this Merck molnupiravir peer review,” Johnson stated of the institution specialists. “The doctor groups I’m dealing with, they call it money-piravir. [Merck] patented ivermectin. They’ve been trash-talking ivermectin in favor now of this drug that will be like $700 a dose versus ivermectin cost about $0.06 or $0.07 a pill,” he stated.

“So again, you have to take a look at his record, which of course the mainstream media will never do. These people will never admit they were wrong, and they’ve got the power to make sure they are never proven wrong. There’s something very sinister going on here, tucker. It has cost tens if not hundred of thousands of people their lives.”
