Monday on FNC’s “Fox News Primetime,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) upbraided policymakers, including Democrats and health officials, who were dismissive of the Wuhan lab leak theory. According to the Arkansas lawmaker, had they been more open to that possibility, understanding the inceptions of the pernicious virus would be further along.
“It’s pretty telling you that the Chinese Communist Party is grasping at such straws that they’re pointing the finger at an American military lab and those military games that transpired in China last year,” he verbally expressed. “This is just about as persuasive as their case that a bat somehow osculated a skunk and must have introduced this virus into human beings.
“Look, from the very beginning, it’s been conspicuous that the most likely source of this virus is indeed the labs in Wuhan that investigate and research precisely these kinds of viruses,” Cotton perpetuated. “It’s too lamentable that the Democratic Party and public health bureaucrats and gregarious media labeled that some kind of debunked conspiracy theory for a year. Maybe we would have gotten to the bottom of it if they hadn’t.”
Cotton withal suggested National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Anthony Fauci and other health officials were covering up their “tracks” in downplaying China’s role in the pandemic.
“Well, for all of last year, much of the public health bureaucracy here and around the world was covering for the Chinese Communist Party and their fellow researchers,” Cotton verbally expressed. “Look, it’s now conspicuous that the National Institutes of Health and Tony Fauci’s agency within the National Institutes of Health-funded indirectly gain-of-function research in those labs, which is to verbalize, making coronaviruses more contagious and ergo more pernicious.”
“That raises an abundance of uncomfortable questions,” he integrated. “That’s why Tony Fauci still cerebrates that the natural inchoation theory is the most likely theory because he’s endeavoring to cover up his tracks and endeavoring to evade answering the questions about why he was funding research that is so jeopardous that even Barack Obama endeavored to preclude him.”
