    *“Life is much simpler when you stop explaining yourself to people and just do what works for you.”*

    Rodriguez " the heart throb " Cruz says:

    Life is simpler when the government doesn’t pick health care choices on race.
    Life is simpler when the government isn’t forcing a 2 year old vaccine onto 5 year Olds.
    Life is simpler when the FBI isn’t in the business of setting up its own citizens.

    Life is simpler when the political establishment isn’t doing everything in its power to destroy us as a country.

    @Rache; Meatte me and a couple million other people. He hasn’t made a clean, coherent speech in years.

    Gordon Leith says:

    Yes.

    LMFAO HIS MIC WASN’T WORKING RIGHT 🤣

    Because a moment without laughter is a day wasted. I find humor in everything

    Leanne Vande Kew says:

    Roger Marshall told his personal physician: ‘Every day I wake up, I look in the mirror, I want to throw up. What’s wrong with me?’ His doctor replied: “I don’t know, but your eyesight is perfect.”

    Peter S says:

    Lol nice

    Reid Fleming, World's Toughest Milkman says:

    ah.. i can’t..

    Ragnar Lothbrok says:

    Roger Marshall is a physician.

    Michael Toney says:

    Hahaha

    Truth!

    Tom Anderson says:

    If senate hearings weren’t televised it would put an end to a lot of this nonsense.

    Jun3 Shiroyuki says:

    I remember court cases weren’t allowed to be recorded or something. Is that like only for the small cases?

    S Smith says:

    The diagnosis was right Dr. 😎👍🩺

    Courtney Hunnell says:

    That’s no Dr that’s a genocidal demon maniac

    Scott Warren says:

    Senator Doctor’s props included “tay payer” and “tweleve”, in case you weren’t sure about Dr. Fauci’s assessment.

    me me says:

    if this guy. this giya. uh is bothering you mr paul. why dont you just arrest them? theres no reason to keep another one = = a hearing going . (another hearing of course would mean that you are yourself chinese lab patient or something or other that decides where the human race goes and what it does.) rd. draining the swamp uh doesnt mean a thing to me personally but i mean., and i do that there is a reason to hold them liable. why is it that we cant ever act on what we know is right in american life and why does it mean that we have to continue believing that there is some radical alternative to the truth. gain of function research just boils down to the fact that there is no real and in fact true alternative to hwhat is happening to our physical bodies, i could get into it further but it is a fact that funding chinese labs is a traiterous acte whether or not we are at war or not.

    TENET says:

    I first thought this was an SNL skit

    Think3r says:

    He said that the big tech giants are making it hard to find his finances, I got them in literally 5 minutes. If you’re curious, it’s mostly just 42 pages of retirement funds.

    gurp chirp says:

    @Mm Mm that book is a doozy

    Fly Boi Bri says:

    Not to mention the fact that public record doesn’t mean things are just out there to go see. Sometimes you have to submit public records requests to get publically available files. I’m not surprised that a republican doesn’t know how public records work though.

    Courtney Hunnell says:

    His investments is what they are looking for.

    Courtney Hunnell says:

    @Wendy they aren’t public. Fauci lied,no surprise. He needs ARRESTED IMMEDIATELY to save lives. He needs to pay for all his genocide.

    Rodriguez " the heart throb " Cruz says:

    @Mm Mm  The world needs to know that he is a walking crime against humanity. A evil individual from a dying era of deepstate criminals and rats.

    RussianBulls says:

    Guys listen Fauci is Fauci , but your bias towards Fauci is blatantly obvious. He makes a lot of money and it’s public knowledge , let’s move on ..

    Jake Lowney says:

    Breaking news: Highest paid government employee…also lowest paid doctor in the country. 🤣

    Lucky Surfer says:

    In California, the compensation of all state employees is published, and financial statements are required. Most governments do this. This Marshall guy knows it because he also has to reveal his compensation, but he used his voice to fool the public into thinking there’s criminal intent in compensating public employees. How much does Marshall get paid? Is he a fraudster because we pay him for his services?

    Nathan Robinson says:

    What? No, you don’t have access to the private portfolio information of un-elected figures in the government. You can see how much they are being paid, but you absolutely have zero access to their private financial transactions and holdings after that.

    Courtney Hunnell says:

    Faucis are not public,he lied. No surprise,he needs ARRESTED IMMEDIATELY for the good of humanity

    R Reed says:

    Like all Democrats think they are above the law. Ask him if he has any offshore accounts

    Ulysses Grant says:

    He’s right.

    Joshua Batchelor says:

    You didn’t even play the sound bite.

    TheThriftHuntress says:

    Fauci needs to be held accountable.

    nick says:

    Yes, he should be thanked for his efforts to save lives!

    TheThriftHuntress says:

    @nick More like people died because of his funding

    nick says:

    @TheThriftHuntress people died because they didn’t get vaccinated and tRUMP told them Covid would just go away.

    TheThriftHuntress says:

    @nick absolute bullish*t. Partisan bullish*t, the worst kind.

    Ron Swanson’s Dog says:

    Lol literally found it with five clicks. Lies spread more lies. And the gullible public believes them.
