Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA), who is best known for his role as Hillary Clinton’s
lapdog vice presidential candidate in her failed 2016 presidential campaign bid, questioned NIAID Director Dr. Fauci today, during a Senate Health Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee hearing on the coronavirus. Dr. Fauci is one of the leading figures in President Trump’s coronavirus task force and has been hailed by the left as a brilliant scientist.
It is our opinion, that Senator Tim Kaine’s questioning of Dr. Fauci, along with Dr. Fauci’s responses, were likely pre-rehearsed for purposes of using his testimony in future campaign ads against President Trump.
You be the judge.
We’ve indicated in parenthesis where we believe Democrats and Democrat PACs will clip the conversation for future ads to be used against President Trump in the upcoming election.
Senator Kaine began his questioning of Dr. Fauci by removing what appeared to be one of his wive’s scarf’s over his face, completely ignoring its supposed intent, (to protect others around him in case he’s infected with COVID-19), so the camera could see his face and capture every word of his exchange with Dr. Fauci.
After providing data showing how the financial resources and health care available to the United States are far superior in every aspect to those of South Korea, Senator Kaine asked the first question of Dr. Fauci.
Senator Kaine: The death toll in the United States, especially compared to those in other countries is unacceptable, isn’t it?
A long and dramatic pause followed Kaine’s question, leaving viewers with two possible options for the pause, either Dr. Fauci was struggling with how to answer the question or his response was delayed by poor reception because Dr. Fauci was answering the questions from home.
Dr. Fauci: “Excuse me. Sorry, sir. Uh, yes, of course. I mean, a death rate at that high is something in any matter or form in my mind, is unacceptable.”
Senator Kaine: “And Dr. Fauci, the experience of other nations shows that the U.S. death rate is not only unacceptable, but it’s unnecessary. Isn’t that correct?”
A bumbling Dr. Fauci responds: “I, I, I don’t know if we can say that Senator.”
Senator Kaine: “But would you say that the U.S. has to do better?”
Dr. Fauci: “Uh, uh, of course, you always have to do better. (Cut the clip here for the ad) As a phys…”
Senator Kaine: And the experience of South Korea shows how a nation manages a health care crisis has a huge impact on its economic condition, isn’t that the case?
Dr. Fauci: “That is the case, sir.” (Cut the clip for the campaign ad here)
Dr. Fauci (continued): “I understand where you’re going with that, but there is a big difference between South Korea and the United States in the outbreak.”
Senator Kaine: “And let me get to that. I want to get to factors that do explain the difference since we know it’s not resources or our health providers. First, is testing. South Korea began aggressive testing much earlier than the U.S. Now, in the fifth month of the pandemic, we’ve surpassed South Korea in testing. But in the critical month of March, South Korea was testing its population at a rate of 40 times the testing in the U.S.”
Does any sane person believe that highly accomplished Dr. Fauci was unable to defend any one of the outrageous statements or accusations made against President Trump and his coronavirus task force by Senator Kaine? Each of Kaine’s inflammatory statements was intended to make President Trump look like he alone, is responsible for the global pandemic that emanated in China, and the economic crisis that will result from Trump heading the advice of these so-called experts hailed by the left.
Kaine continued: “Dr. Gerard has set out the standard for us. When we get to September, he says the United States needs to do 40-50 million tests a month to be safe. That equates to about 1.3 million to 1.7 million tests a day. Yesterday, we did 395,000 tests. We’ve got a long way to go.”
Of course, Senator Kaine provides no information about how testing has dramatically increased in the United States or about how in all 50 states, we are now testing at a higher rate per capita than in South Korea.

For anyone who chooses to dismiss our observation about the exchange between Dr. Fauci and Hillary’s former VP pick, as a ridiculous conspiracy theory, perhaps these revealing 2012 emails from Dr. Fauci, where he shares his adoration for Hillary Clinton, might help to explain why the good doctor would be anxious to help Democrats defeat President Trump in the upcoming election.
Dr. Fauci’s email praising Hillary on June 2, 2012, can be seen below. The emails were part of several emails released by Wikileaks from Hillary’s unsecured server. In the first email, Dr. Fauci asks Hillary aides to relay a message to Hillary about her speech that “brought me to tears,” calling it a “bases-loaded home run.” Dr. Fauci was literally tripping over himself with praise for the crooked secretary of state, asking her aides to tell Hillary Clinton, “I love her more than ever” adding, “you guys too, of course.”
Here’s the second email from Dr. Fauci to Hillary aide Cheryl Mills, praising Hillary, asking her to relay a message to Hillary: “Please tell her that we all love her and are very proud to know her.”
With Dr. Fauci’s clear obsession with America’s most crooked Democrat, is it any wonder then, that in 2009, Dr. Fauci did such a great job of downplaying the H1N1 outbreak while Barack Obama golfed and no one in America even noticed?
What do you think? Did Senator Tim Kaine’s questions and Dr. Fauci’s answers seem like a set up for an ad? Share your thoughts with us below.
