On Friday afternoon, Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan asked the almighty Dr. Anthony Fauci – Holy be his name, as far as the liberal media is concerned – to offer his opinion during House testimony on whether or not the U.S. government should limit protests in order to control the spread of COVID-19.
Fauci, as is common with any spineless weasel, hemmed and hawed before attempting to walk the political line by asserting that “any crowd of people close together without masks is a risk.”
Jordan pushed back, asking Fauci the Ferret DIRECTLY: “Should government limit the protesting?”
“I don’t think that’s relevant,” Fauci said while likely wetting his finely-tailored trousers. “I’m not in a position to determine what the government can do in a forceful way.”
“You make all kinds of recommendations,” Jordan replied, noting that state governments were limiting people attending church services.
“Is there a world where the Constitution says you can favor one First Amendment liberty, protesting, over another, practicing your faith?” Jordan asked.
“I’m not favoring anybody over anybody,” Fauci Ferret lied. “I’m just making a statement that’s a broad statement, that avoid crowds of any type, no matter where you are, because that leads to the acquisition and transmission. And I don’t judge one crowd versus another crowd. When you’re in a crowd, particularly if you’re not wearing a mask, that induces the spread.”
There’s “no limit to protests,” Jordan said, but “you can’t go to church on Sunday.”
“I don’t know how many times I can [fail to] answer that,” Fauci panicked, fearing expulsion from the liberal elite fantasy sports league and wine appreciation society. “I’m not going to opine on limiting anything.”
Jordan punched back, reminding Fauci that he had “opined on a lot of things.”
Oh, the exchange was glorious.
