Sen. Rand Paul came after Dr. Anthony Fauci during a hearing, but Dr. Fauci fired back by accusing the Republican of using the pandemic for ‘political gain’ while ‘lying about me’ and putting his family at risk.

Dr. Anthony Fauci seemingly had enough of Senator Rand Paul on Tuesday (Jan. 11). “What happens when he [Paul] gets out and accuses me of things that are completely untrue?” Dr. Fauci, 81, asked while testifying at a Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions hearing. Paul, 59, had accused the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of “destroy[ing] the reputations of other scientists who disagree with him,” referring to three conservative academics who opposed lockdown measures in 2020, per the Washington Post. The emails that the Kentucky senator used as proof showed Fauci sending colleagues a link to a Wired article debunking claims about “herd immunity,” and Fauci fired back at Paul. “That’s not what went on. There you go again. You do the same thing every hearing.”

“So the last time we had a committee or the time before, he was accusing me of being responsible for the death of 4 to 5 million people, which is irresponsible,” Dr. Fauci said, per The Daily Beast. Why is he doing that? … The first is, it distracts from what we’re all trying to do here today, [which] is get our arms around the epidemic and pandemic we’re dealing with, not something imaginary. Number two, what happens when he gets out and accuses me of things that are completely untrue? [It]s that all of a sudden, that kindles the crazies out there and I have threats upon my life, harassment of my family, and my children, with obscene phone calls because people are lying about me.”

Dr. Fauci hinted at Kuachua Brillion Xiong, 25, a California man arrested during a traffic stop in Iowa in December. Xiong had an AR-15 and multiple magazines of ammunition in his car. He had a “hit list” that included former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, and potentially President Joe Biden. Dr. Fauci’s name wasn’t included in the federal complaint against Xiong, and his attorney indicated in court that the man intends to plead insanity.

That wasn’t the only accusation Dr. Fauci lobbed at his rival. He brought up how Sen. Paul’s reelection website has a “Fire Dr. Fauci” section and includes “a little box that says contribute here. You can do five dollars. Ten dollars. Twenty dollars, a hundred dollars,” Fauci said. “So you are making a catastrophic epidemic for your political gain.” Rand Paul dismissed the criticism by saying it was “disappointing” for Dr. Fauci to “suggest that people who dare to question you are responsible somehow for violent threats.”

G-EAZY – But A Dream lyrics

[Chorus]
Yeah, Legendary swag, young god, stay drippin’
Spillin’ champagne on a boat, big pimpin’
Life is but a dream, look bitch, stop trippin’
You know what it is, you know what it isn’t
She just get it poppin’ every time daddy visit
Drinking by the pool, go ahead and take a dip in
Life is but a dream, we livin’, stop trippin’
You know what it is, you know what it isn’t

[Verse 1]
I really put the work in, don’t you ever try to play me
I would die a legend if today they JFK’d me
Ridin’ in my ‘65 listening to Amy
I’ve been to hell and back and through it all remained the same me
I never gave a f*ck, a million dollars couldn’t change me
As long as Mark Zuckerberg’s still got that zipped hoodie
I think about the journey and think what it did to me
I’m eating like a king until I’ve got a big tummy
Hair slicked backwards with a skin, fade taper
Captain Save-A-Hoe, never I, can’t save her
She said I drive her Mad, Gerald’s rap’s Don Draper
All day I touch paper, bitch don’t ask me no favor
If you wasn’t here before it, your call, I ignore it
How quickly they forgive, these days I swear I can’t support it
Six-hundred horsepower, I just hop inside and floor it
The money, I adore it, every year I’m getting more lit

[Chorus]
Legendary swag, young god, stay drippin’
Spillin’ champagne on a boat, big pimpin’
Life is but a dream, look bitch, stop trippin’
You know what it is, you know what it isn’t
She just get it poppin’ every time daddy visits
Drinking by the pool, go ahead and take a dip in
Life is but a dream, we livin’, stop trippin’
You know what it is, you know what it isn’t

[Verse 2]
She just so bad, make you take a second look
I fly out for a week, she just come to f*ck and cook
And post by the pool, with her feet up, read a book
I text her “L.A.?” that was all it took
She clicks her heels three times, she’ll be here by tonight
I text my travel agent name and birthday, it’s a flight
When we was broke, I used to tell my moms we’d be alright
I’m gonna work the long nights and never be a fly-by-night
I put my plans in motion, I fly across the ocean
I popped before the flight so I could see her dreams in motion
And I be out in London, Dover Street, I goes in
Fuck that after-party money, spent that on some clothing
And I’m not trying to flex on those who be hatin’
This is for my little bruhs, just some inspiration
Everybody back home, serves as motivation
So go and get the money, get the dreams you been chasing

[Chorus]
Legendary swag, young god, stay drippin’
Spillin’ champagne on a boat, big pimpin’
Life is but a dream, look bitch, stop trippin’
You know what it is, you know what it isn’t
She just get it poppin’ every time daddy visits
Drinking by the pool, go ahead and take a dip in
Life is but a dream, we livin’, stop trippin’
You know what it is, you know what it isn’t
