Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick announced he will no longer be taking White House Coronavirus Task Force Member Dr. Anthony Fauci’s advice on Fox News’ The Laura Ingraham Show, Tuesday claiming Fauci “has been wrong every time” about the pandemic.
After Laura Ingraham noted that Texas’ increase in coronavirus cases has been compared to New York’s issues with the virus, Patrick said, “reality is a lot different.”
“We’ve had 2,424 people die and New York has had over 31,000. Even California has had almost three times as much as Texas, and remember Laura, those two states have been locked down the whole time while we have been open, so locking down doesn’t work,” he declared, claiming, “If it did, those two states would be doing better than Texas.”
“Fauci said today that he’s concerned about states like Texas that skipped over certain things. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about, we haven’t skipped over anything. The only thing I’m skipping over is listening to him,” Patrick continued, adding, “You know, you have a lot of doctors on your show from day one, your doctors have been right almost every time, and he has been wrong every time on every issue.”
As of today, Texas has over 167,000 cases and identified almost 8,000 new cases yesterday.
By contrast, New York had just a smidge over 500 new cases yesterday.
I don’t know what the fake doctors that Fox News puts on the air are saying, but Dr. Fauci’s recommendations are in lockstep with essentially all of the other medical professionals in the country.
By ignoring their advice Patrick is committing political malpractice and essentially killing his own people.
Time for his ass to get kicked to the curb.
