Dr. Fauci on Sunday appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” and told host Jake Tapper he just doesn’t get why conservatives at CPAC cheered Americans who don’t want the Covid vaccine.
CPAC attendees on Saturday applauded and cheered a comment on low vaccination rates.

Fauci thinks it’s horrifying that Americans are capable of critical thinking and doing research.
There are now 6,985 reported deaths from the COVID-19 vaccinations across the United States this year.
There have been 411,931 adverse reactions reported to the vaccine.
“It’s horrifying…I just don’t get that. I mean, and I don’t think that anybody who is thinking clearly can get that,” Fauci told Tapper.
“We’ve got to put aside this ideological difference or differences thinking that somebody is forcing you to do something. The public health officials, like myself and my colleagues, are asking you to do something that will ultimately save your life and that of your family, and that of the community,” Fauci whined. “I don’t know. I really don’t have a good explanation, Jake, about why this is happening. I mean, it’s ideological rigidity, I think. There’s no reason not to get vaccinated.”
Jake Tapper asks Dr. Anthony Fauci to react to the CPAC Texas crowd cheering that the government has been unable to reach its vaccine goals so far.
