WATCH: “People Who Deny Reality Don’t Care For Me” Dr. Fauci Explains Why He’s So Controversial

Dr. Anthony Fauci is the leading expert on infection disease in the United States. Or, he’s part of a conspiracy to create a fake pandemic and trick people into wearing masks, depending on who you listen to. So, how does one individual — one intelligent, highly-educated individual who has been deemed so capable that every administration since Ronald Reagan’s has relied on his expertise — become the center of such a divide?

WASHINGTON, DC – JULY 20: Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, arrives to testify before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee at the Dirksen Senate Office Building on July 20, 2021 in Washington, DC.

Dr. Fauci has an explanation, and it echoes a quote often attributed to Mark Twain: “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.”

He says that people who have made up their minds to reject reality aren’t ever going to like him, because “I have stood for always making science, data, and evidence be what we guide ourselves by.”

Two clips follow. In the first, Fauci addresses political moves that make it harder to fight the pandemic, and why these are dangerous, and in the second clip, he answers the prime question: why has he become such a polarizing figure?

“People who…deny reality that’s looking them straight in the eye, those are people who don’t particularly care for me…Sometimes the truth becomes inconvenient for some people.”

Since the pandemic — and the pandemic denialism — began, Fauci has faced an increasing spate of right-wing threats, worse even “a magnitude different” than the attacks he saw during the height of the HIV/AIDS crisis. Republican legislators have also called for him to be fired, or even charged with crimes.
