Dr. Drew Pinsky joined Dave Rubin on "The Rubin Report" to talk about how Dr. Anthony Fauci lost his trust, how the CDC created vaccine hesitancy, the truth about mask efficacy, and how woke culture is creating a climate where doctors are afraid of being canceled for stating scientific facts.

First, Dr. Drew discussed how the CDC ignored everything it had learned from the HIV epidemic and lost the trust of the public. He explained why Fauci's denial of gain of-function research funding caused him to no longer trust him despite looking up to him for decades.

"I've been overly fair [with Fauci] because I've been through five pandemics with him," Drew told Rubin. "He was my really my man during HIV, MERS, SARS-1, H1N1 — H1N1 was a terrible pandemic. You don't even know what happened. That was bad ... why didn't we have a moderate reaction to that one at least?"

"I figured [Fauci] had been adulterated by what everyone's getting adulterated with, which is the tribalism of our time. And I thought he would revert to the mean," he continued. "His judgment has been awesome and I still to this day believe we'll see a reversion to the mean in terms of him looking OK. However, he finally did something that upset me, which was ... in front of Congress, multiple times, whenever they would ask him about the gain of function or funding, he would just be like, 'I'm confused. What are you talking about?' ... What didn't you [Fauci] just tell us?"

"That's how you create vaccine hesitancy," Dr. Drew continued. "Now it's like, OK, I can't trust you. You knew what we were asking, answer the damn question. Be open about this. Trust the American people to be able to digest what you're telling them, give them a recommendation, and then move on."

Drew went on to talk about why people don't know who to trust for public health advice and why it was "offensive and disgusting" that the decisions Joe Rogan made with his doctor resulted in such an outcry.
