Fauci gives first post-Trump press conference: ‘It’s liberating to talk science without repercussions’

Standing at the podium in the White House press room this Thursday, Dr. Anthony Fauci was asked by a reporter how he feels being “released” from the constraints of the Trump administration now that he’s part of President Biden’s coronavirus task force.

“Obviously I don’t want to be going back over history, but it was very clear that there were things that were said, be it regarding things like hydroxychloroquine and other things like that, that really were uncomfortable because they were not based on scientific fact,” Fauci said.

“I can tell you, I take no pleasure at all being in a situation of contradicting the President,” he continued. “So it was really something that you didn’t feel that you could actually say something and there wouldn’t be any repercussions about it. The idea that you can get up here and talk about what you know, what the evidence — what the science is and know that’s it, let the science speak, it is somewhat of a liberating feeling.”
