On Friday evening, Fox News show host Tucker Carlson grilled Dr. Anthony Fauci, calling him a "fraud" for his responses to Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan during a recent hearing.
"Jordan grilled Fauci during a heated House subcommittee hearing exchange Friday on whether ongoing protests and demonstrations sparked by the death of George Floyd should be treated the same as churches in some states and banned to curb the spread of coronavirus," the Daily Caller reports.
Carlson played a video clip of the exchange between Jordan and Fauci and then compared the clip to comments Fauci has made in the past.
“Oh, so he is willing to weigh in on specific responses,” Carlson said. “Government 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.”
“Oh, we just have to do it. Really?” Carlson questioned.
“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,” Carlson blasted. “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.”
