Dr. Anthony Fauci equated the personal attacks he’s faced to “attacks on science” during an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday.

“Sometimes those things were inconvenient truths for people. And there was pushback against me. So if you are trying to get at me, as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really not only attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci, you’re attacking science,” he continued.
