Dr. Fauci Lets It Slip – Reveals His True Thoughts
(NewsBroadcast.com) – Doctor Anthony Fauci, MD, is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the chief medical advisor to the president, and is without a doubt, well educated and intelligent. Though, perhaps he should have taken a couple of civics or government classes along the way. Most kids learned from Schoolhouse Rock that Congress makes the laws, the president enforces those laws, and the courts make sure they are Constitutional and are being followed. Based on recent comments in an exclusive Fox News interview, it appears that the good doctor doesn’t have a firm grasp on that concept.
During the interview, host Neil Cavuto asked Fauci how he felt about the recent federal court ruling about mask mandates on public transportation. He responded saying, it isn’t so much about the mandates, but is instead about “who has the right and the authority and the capability of making public health decisions.”
Czar Fauci has spoken: “The mask mandate is a CDC issue. It should not have been a court issue.”
In other words: he says the administrative state’s decisions should not be constrained by law.
At least he’s being candid.

But that’s not exactly what the court decided, in fact, the decision didn’t make any health decisions at all.
In January, the Supreme Court ruled that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) lacked the authority to order employees at large companies to be vaccinated because Congress did not give it to them. On a similar note, a federal judge in Florida recently ruled that the CDC overstepped its bounds with the mandate that a mask must be worn on public conveyances because, again, the legislative branch did not authorize it.
When the mask decision was first handed down in April, Dr. Fauci appeared on “Red & Blue” on CBS News and said he has a problem with the “principle of a court overruling a public health judgment [and that it] is disturbing in the precedent” it sets.
To be clear, neither court made any kind of judgment on the quality of the orders; they interpreted the law and found that the administration cut lawmakers out of the loop. In other words, the judges did their jobs by making sure the other branches of government were held accountable.
