Anthony Fauci on Sunday said Sen. Ron Johnson’s (R-Wis.) comments that the infectious diseases expert “overhyped” the AIDS epidemic and the COVID-19 pandemic are “preposterous,” adding, “I don’t have any clue of what he’s talking about.”
Asked about Johnson’s comments by co-host Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Fauci said he did not know how to respond to such a remark considering the high death tolls caused by both AIDS and COVID-19.
“How do you respond to something as preposterous as that? Overhyping AIDS? It's killed over 750,000 Americans and 36 million people worldwide. How do you overhype that? Overhyping COVID? It's already killed 780,000 Americans and over 5 million people worldwide,” Fauci said.
“So I don't have any clue of what he's talking about,” he added.
During an interview with Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade on "The Brian Kilmeade Show" on Wednesday, Johnson said Fauci, who helped lead research into AIDS in the 1980s, “overhyped” the epidemic and claimed that the nation's top infectious diseases expert is doing the same for the COVID-19 pandemic.
Discussing the omicron variant, Johnson accused individuals in the U.S. of trying to “create a state of fear” to “maintain controls” amid the pandemic before turning to Fauci.
“By the way, Fauci did the same exact thing with AIDS. He overhyped it. He created all kinds of fear, saying it could infect the entire population when it couldn’t, and he’s doing, he’s using the exact same playbook with COVID: ignoring therapy, pushing a vaccine,” Johnson said.
Tapper noted that Facui was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by then-President George W. Bush for his leadership amid the AIDS crisis.
And I would believe Fauci WHY?
And the liar continues to lie.
He has ZERO credibility....NONE!!!!
He knows EXACTLY what’s being talked about.
I remember when they said everyone was going to get AIDS.
NOT the only thing fauxnocchio is clueless about.
Fauci’s right about one thing: he doesn’t have any clue.
The very same responses given when the Nazi medical persons who did types of experiments on prisoners in the concentration camps.
All backed by governmental agencies. AND NOT particularly nazi government agencies either...although they did tow the line the nazis ordered them.
“Overhyping COVID? It’s already killed 780,000 Americans and over 5 million people worldwide,”
Since it was you who were in this bio weapon up to your eyes most believe you should be tried and executed for crimes against humanity you sordid little son of a bitch.
BTW Fauci..how about those orphans you killed?
Fauci makes Mengele look like a grade school drop out.
SEE? Fauci doesn’t ALWAYS lie completely. “ I don’t have any clue . . ..” Fair enough.
Well, at least he realizes that he hasn’t a clue. The first step on the road to recovery.
What gets me is he says die to all, nothing to him..
Like china and the used to be free world, cower and agree
With Fauci’s old AIDS vaccine renamed COVID 19 vaccine
Peace to Israel
Fauci put forth that AIDS could be contracted simply by being in the proximity of a carrier. Fauci is a fool. He has been a bureaucrat for so long that he thinks he knows everything. How have these few people totally disrupted the entire planet without any consequences whatsoever? It really is amazing.

“I don’t have any clue of what he’s talking about.
If you heard what he is talking about
then you obviously have at least one clue and you prove you do know what he’s talking about
Fauci could have at least worked to forbid homosexuals from giving blood, being organ donors and probably quarantined the sick while AIDS was still known as GRID!
But he stood by and let the poofters become even more of a disease vector than they already were, and then when that kid got HIV from blood transfusions the ghoul and his allied eagerly trotted him out as if to say: “see that we were right? A general population disease!”
… when had they not covered for the faggots and drug users the boy might not have got AIDS at all.
How many of those hundreds of thousands dead lay at your doorstep, Fauci?
