Donald Trump has not been happy with Fox News for months.
Now Donald Trump will be red with rage after what he just saw on Fox News.
Fox News Channel’s anti-Trump host Neil Cavuto provided a platform for Dr. Fauci to respond to North Carolina Congressman Madison Cawthorn’s declaration that if Republicans win control of the House in 2022, Dr. Fauci will face criminal charges.
Tucker Carlson also believes Dr. Fauci should face charges for funding the gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Many believe this research, which was funded by the NIH, helped facilitate the pandemic since the coronavirus became a research experiment gone wrong and escaped the lab in Wuhan, China.
Speaking with Cavuto, Dr. Fauci tried to weasel his way out of any accountability for that decision.
“No. I’m a scientist, and my job which I’m doing, which I’ve done was to develop the vaccines that saved millions of lives already, is to be a scientist and a public health official. I certainly don’t like how all of this has turned out to be so contentious. I mean, when a congressman makes a statement, I forgot what it was, that they take over the House in 2022, I should be criminally investigated. On what basis is he making that comment? Neil, you’ve got to get realistic about that,” Dr. Fauci said.
Cavuto then asked Fauci why so many conservatives dismiss him as an incompetent buffoon whom they ignore or mock.
Fauci claimed it was because he spoke “the truth” during the Trump administration.
“I think there’s no doubt that because I had to speak the truth during the Trump administration, which at times was contrary to President Trump, that that annoyed a lot of people who got very upset with me. But I wasn’t doing anything personal. I was just trying to speak the truth about what was really going on with the outbreak. It was nothing at all against President Trump. And in fact, if you look at the record, I have never said anything derogatory against the president. I was only talking about correcting misstatements about the science. I had nothing against the president at all. Not at all. He knows that. In fact, he even says that at time.”
“But when I was saying things that this is not going to just disappear, that this is not going to just go away, that we do have a very serious problem, that annoyed a lot of Trump loyalists. I’m sorry it annoyed them, but it is the truth. And that’s what I was trying to do and still do, is to tell the truth,” Fauci concluded.
In real life, many on the right turned against Dr. Fauci because he proved to be a glory-hound bureaucrat who wanted to extend his fifteen minutes of fame and has ended up wrong about everything – from his lies, excessive fear mongering, support for disastrous lockdowns and ineffective mask mandates, to the constantly shifting goal posts on vaccinations and immunity.
