DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: I have absolutely nothing to hide or nothing to be concerned about, of anything that I've done. So I never have been – and not now and will never be – afraid of hearings done in good faith in oversight. I mean, obviously, if you looked at some of the hearings, they've started off out of nowhere to be ad hominem attacks without even asking a reasonable question.
I'm a physician, I'm a scientist. … I don't think about it in terms of being a cult person and everybody idolizing me and being a controversial, polarizing figure where other people … do these kinds of things that we've been talking about, about attacking me. Either end of that spectrum to me is irrelevant, Neil. My job is what's important. … So the idea when you're idolized, or you're demonized … that's just a reflection of what's going on in society and really has very little to do with what I am and who I am and what I do. So you may not believe it or appreciate it, but all of that other stuff is irrelevant. It's my job and what I do, that's important.
