During a House hearing of the committee investigating the Trump administration???s pandemic response, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) asked Fauci, ???Do protests increase the spread of the virus????
???Crowding together, particularly when you???re not wearing a mask, contributes to the spread of the virus,??? Fauci said. Jordan asked the question again. Fauci dodged, then claimed he didn???t think the protests question was relevant. ???I???m not in a position to determine what the government can do in a forceful way,??? he said.
Not in a position to determine what gummint does, adding carefully crafted qualification “in a forceful way.” He’s our chief political doctor.
