WATCH: John Kennedy “about half of Americans trust Dr. Fauci now like they would trust Bill Cosby as the bartender”

Appearing on Fox News, Senator John Kennedy said  “I think if I were king for a day — I’m not and don’t aspire to be — I would appoint one person in whom the American people have confidence here in Washington, not a politician, to try to answer people’s questions.”

“Now, fair or not I don’t think that’s Dr. Fauci. I like Dr. Fauci and respect him, but fair or not, about half of Americans trust Dr. Fauci now like they would trust Bill Cosby as the bartender,” he added.
