On Friday, Dr. Fauci appeared before a House Committee to give his take on the pandemic and the response thus far.
When Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) questioned Fauci on the impact protests have had on the spread, Fauci seemed to get a case of lockjaw and would not commit to telling the government it needed to limit protests in the wake of the pandemic.
Tucker Carlson could not wait to unload on Fauci after the hearing.
Carlson stated, “Oh, so he is willing to weigh in on specific responses.
“What a fraud this guy is.
“Put on your mask.
“Get off your powerboat.
“Put on some goggles.
“Do it for public health.
“By the way, the consequences don’t matter.
“They are just inconveniences.”
Carlson continued, “Fauci is 79, but maybe if he had like 22-year-old kids who were trying to make their way in this world in an economy that is headed down the tubes thanks largely to his recommendations, he would feel differently.
“It’s not merely an inconvenience when your economy collapses.
“It’s the end of the American Dream. That’s not a small thing.
“Maybe it’s worth it. Maybe it’s not, but if it is, then you probably shouldn’t take a pass on the question, are protests and riots okay? Unless you’re a total fraud, like a complete fraud.”
