Somebody should check on Dr. Anthony Fauci because there might not be much left of him after Megyn Kelly tore him to pieces on her podcast this week.
The former Fox News host lashed out at Dr. Fauci after he told CNN that he would “certainly consider” testifying before Congress after he steps down from his role at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
The GOP has all but promised the chief government spokesman during the COVID-19 pandemic that he will testify on his recommendations and oversight of funding for coronavirus research in Wuhan, China.
“He sounds like he’s been invited to afternoon tea at one of our houses,” Kelly said on SiriusXM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast. “F*** you, Fauci! You don’t get to say whether you go. You get a congressional subpoena, you show up, or you get the Steve Bannon treatment.”
Steve Bannon was found guilty of criminal contempt of Congress for refusing to answer a subpoena to testify on the Jan. 8 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Kelly took Fauci apart in her monologue for the podcast accusing him of lying repeatedly to the nation and encouraging policies that failed to slow the spread of In a monologue on Wednesday’s podcast, Kelly savaged Fauci, accusing him of lying repeatedly to the American people and of encouraging policies that failed to slow the spread of COVID-19 but hastened the division in the country.
“The truth is that Dr. Fauci, who had a greater hand than anyone in causing Americans to lose their jobs, years of learning, and even their lives — thanks to the social and economic upheaval he helped foist upon us during the pandemic — ought to be ashamed to show his face in polite society,” Kelly said. “Instead the man is self-congratulatory.”
Again, somebody should check on the man.
