The two Republican senators who were singled out by Dr. Anthony Fauci during an interview, where the nation’s top health bureaucrat arrogantly claimed that they were attacking science for their legitimate criticism of him, struck back at the figure who is arguably the most powerful man in the country in terms of media influence.

On Sunday, CBS News aired an interview between President Joe Biden’s top medical adviser as well as the public face of the government’s COVID response where Fauci was given wide latitude by anchor Margaret Brennan to engage in some despicable political brinksmanship, suggesting that Senator Ted Cruz could face prosecution for the so-called “insurrection” and that he is immune from Senator Rand Paul’s efforts at legitimate congressional oversight.

With the mask ripped off after Fauci’s mocking laugh and delusional insistence that he IS the science fully exposed the megalomania that has manifested itself within the mind of the longtime head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Cruz and Paul are coming for him and they are loaded for bear.

Paul appeared on “Fox News Primetime” on Monday night where he ripped into Fauci’s insistence that the science is now whatever he decides that it is, conjuring images of Medieval times.

“When a government bureaucrat has the audacity and the arrogance to say they represent all of science, we should be running the other way,” he said. “It conjures up images of the Medieval Church and their repression of science. Science has nothing to do with having obedience to any kind of government dogma.”

The Kentucky Republican who has frequently clashed with Fauci during his Senate appearances had already responded to his outrageous remarks in a scathing Sunday tweet.

“The absolute hubris of someone claiming THEY represent science. It’s astounding and alarming that a public health bureaucrat would even think to claim such a thing, especially one who has worked so hard to ignore the science of natural immunity,” Paul wrote.

Cruz intensified his criticism of the elfin high priest of COVID as well, slamming Fauci as the “most dangerous bureaucrat in the history of the country,” during a Fox News appearance with host Sean Hannity, scoffing at the idea that the GOP lawmakers are waging war on science.

According to the Texas Republican, “I don’t think anyone has hurt science, has hurt the credibility of the CDC, has hurt the credibility of doctors more than Dr. Fauci because throughout this pandemic, he’s been dishonest, he’s been political, he’s been partisan and the American people know it.”

On Sunday, Cruz dialed up the heat under Fauci with a series of tweets culminating in the idea that he should face prosecution for his lies to Congress.

Fauci’s smugness will only continue to be effective for as long as he enjoys the protection of a complicit media but, if as expected, the Democrats are ousted from control of both houses of Congress in next year’s midterm elections, he may find himself squirming in his seat once Republicans are able to launch their own investigations.
