Fauci made his remarks during an interview with ABC News’ “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” hosted by Martha Raddatz.

Fauci Says Open The Schools

“Martha, that’s a good question,” Fauci said in response to a question about school closings. “We get asked it all the time.”

“We say it not being facetiously as a sound bite or anything, but you know, close the bars and keep the schools open is what we really say,” Fauci said.

Fauci was talking about how a future Joe Biden administration could have a school reopening plan.

He also referred to the closing of New York City schools in November.

Fauci said, “Obviously, you don’t have one size fits all, but as I said in the past, and as you accurately quoted me, the default position should be to try as best as possible within reason to keep the children in school or to get them back to school.”

On Sunday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that middle and high school students would not be able to return to the classroom and must continue to learn virtually.

According to Fauci, reducing “the community level” transmission of coronavirus will “ensure the safety of the children in school.”

Dr. Fauci said, “So, if you mitigate the things that you know are causing spread in a very, very profound way, in a robust way, if you bring that down, you will then indirectly and ultimately protect the children in the school because the community level is determined how things go across the board.”

“So my feeling would be the same thing,” Fauci continued. “If you look at the data, the spread among children and from children is not really very big at all, not like one would have suspected.”

Fauci Previously Feuded With Rand Paul

In the wake of this interview, Senator Rand Paul reminded Fauci that it has not always been clear about the doctor’s view on reopening schools.

Sen. Paul was raked over the coals by the media at the time for citing data that showed school re-openings would be safe.

“Shouldn’t we at least be discussing what the mortality of children is?” Paul asked Fauci during a Senate hearing in May, noting that the mortality rate of coronavirus patients age 0 to 18 “approaches zero” in New York.

Paul said not reopening schools in the fall would be “really ridiculous.”

The Washington Post called Paul’s views on the subject “weird.”

The Week’s Joel Mathis chided both Paul and Trump’s calls to reopen schools as unsafe.

Social media was littered with insults against Paul at the time.

Is the media going to attack Dr. Fauci now? Or accuse him of advocating for unsafe environments for school kids? Or insult him?

Nope, because the media and elites consider Dr. Fauci the be-all-end-all no matter what. For them, he is infallible.

That assumption could present a different kind of danger. Everyone makes mistakes.

Including Anthony Fauci.
