“If You’re Attacking Me, You’re Attacking Science” Dr. Fauci Rips Into Marsha Blackburn and Other GOP Lawmakers [VIDEO]

Slowly but surely, the fight against COVID-19 is coming to an end. A fair amount of people in the country are now fully vaccinated and businesses are fully opening.

And now that Donald Trump is now out of office, Republicans are focused on gaslighting the public on his leadership during the pandemic. One of the ways they choose to do so is by attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci. Fauci appeared on Meet the Press Daily on Tuesday and ripped into some of his critics.

Host Chuck Todd asked the doctor about a recent video posted by Marsha Blackburn. The Tennessee senator claimed, “Dr. Fauci was emailing with Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook, trying to create that narrative. Cherrypicking information so that you would only know what they wanted you to know, and there would be a narrative that would fit with this cherrypicked information.”

Fauci responded, “I don’t have a clue of what she’s talking about. … And I’m sorry, I don’t want to be pejorative against a united States senator but I have no idea what she’s talking about. And you know Chuck, if you go through each and every one of the points which are so ridiculous, just painfully ridiculous, if you go through each and every one of them, you can explain and debunk it immediately.”

Ted Lieu Roasts TN Sen. Marsha Blackburn Over Her Ignorance of the Constitution

Today was Constitution Day in the United States. Donald Trump celebrated the event by giving an incredibly sleepy speech at the National Archives Museum.

Trump told attendees, “We embrace the vision of Martin Luther King where children are not judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. The left is attempting to destroy that beautiful vision and divide Americans by race in the service of political power.”

Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn decided that she would celebrate Constitution Day with some insane and inaccurate words. She took to Twitter, writing, “We will never rewrite the Constitution of the United States.”

Obviously, Blackburn missed out on the fact that the Constitution has been amended a number of times.

Congressman Ted Lieu of California wrote, “I simply note that Senator Marsha Blackburn became a senator through the process established by the 17th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. And her right to vote came from the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.”

Taylor Swift Asks Fans to Vote Against Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee

Pop music superstar Taylor Swift broke her long-held public political silence in an Instagram post Sunday night, encouraging her followers to vote in the November midterm elections. She also said she would be voting for Democrats and slammed Republican senate candidate, U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn.

“In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now,” Swift wrote in her post.

“I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country,” she added. “I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.”

“I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love,” the superstar continued. She then lambasted senate candidate Blackburn, saying she cannot vote for her due to her political record. She listed some of the policies Blackburn supports, including the idea that businesses have a right to turn away gay patrons. She concluded by writing, “These are not MY Tennessee values.”

“I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives.”

Cooper currently represents the fifth congressional district based in Nashville. Bredesen is a former Tennessee governor and mayor of Nashville who is locked in a tight senate battle with Blackburn.

Swift included in her post a plea to her followers to get engaged with the political process, writing:

“Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway.” read more
