Fauci mocked after claiming CDC mask mandates shouldn’t be decided by federal courts

Dr. Anthony Fauci has begun to weave his way back into the weekly cable news interview circuit as COVID-19 cases begin to slightly tick up in some cities and other countries.

However, the lord of all things COVID took particular issue with a recent development concerning the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) mask mandate extension for public transportation being reversed by a Florida-based federal judge, according to Fox News

Fauci admitted that he believed the reversal of the asinine mask extension to be “disturbing,” adding that in his expert opinion, such matters are “not judicial” in nature.

Appropriately, Fauci was absolutely torched on social media for apparently not having a basic understanding of the U.S. Constitution.

“Disturbing precedent”

It was U.S. District Court Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle who issued the bombshell ruling to nix the mask mandate for public transportation, such as airplanes, trains, and buses. The judge was immediately demonized by the Branch Covidians on the left and by their allies in the liberal media.

Not surprisingly, left-leaning media networks raced to book Fauci to receive his wisdom on the matter.

“Do you personally agree or disagree with her interpretation of public health law?” CBS anchor Robert Costa asked the infectious disease expert during a segment on the network’s streaming show Red & Blue.

Fauci replied: “Well, I clearly disagree, I mean those types of things should be decided as a public health issue by the public health organizations, in this case the CDC. This is a public health matter, not a judicial matter.”

He added: “But one of the problems that we have there is that the principle of a court overruling a public health judgment by a qualified organization like the CDC is disturbing in the precedent in might send.”

The backlash

It only took a matter of minutes before Fauci was dragged across social media for suggesting that the CDC was immune to judgment from federal rulings.

“Fauci may want to take a little time and review the Constitution and the case law. The CDC must follow the law just like any other agency or person,” tweeted West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R).

“Fauci seems to assert that the bureaucracy should not be beholden to the Constitution and rule of law,” wrote The Federalist Editor-in-Chief Mollie Hemingway.
