Dr. Anthony Fauci schooled Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on basic science after Jordan whined about having to still wear a mask because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has increased in 25 states and is up to a new average of 71,000 infections a day.
During a hearing in the House of Representatives, Jordan demanded to know when Americans could get their “liberty and freedom” back from wearing life-saving masks.
Fauci quickly shot down the ignorant congressman:
You’re indicating liberty and freedom, I look at it as a public health measure to prevent people from dying and going to the hospital.
Jordan went ballistic after hearing the science-based answer:
You don’t think Americans’ liberties have been threatened in the last year, Dr. Fauci? They’ve been assaulted!
Fauci calmly replied to the unhinged congressman:
This will end for sure when we get the level of infection very low.
