Dr. Fauci and Tucker Carlson have a contentious relationship.
But Fauci just escalated things to a whole different level.
And Dr. Fauci’s response to Tucker Carlson’s question will leave you speechless.
Dr. Fauci recently testified before Congress in hearing about the nation’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
As usual, Democrats took advantage of this hearing to try and score political points at the Republicans’ expense.
Illinois Democrat Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi quizzed Dr. Fauci on comments Tucker Carlson made on a previous broadcast asking questions about how Dr. Fauci and other so-called “experts” refused to tell the truth about the coronavirus vaccine.
Dr. Fauci gladly took the opportunity to slam a conservative critic.
While claiming he was “too busy” to ‘get into a back and forth with Carlson Dr. Fauci nonetheless blasted Carlson saying he wished he didn’t say what he said about vaccines because it supposedly hurt the effort to vaccinate the population.
“You know, I wish that he would not have said it. Again, I don’t want to get into a back-and-forth, because that’s what happened between me and Tucker Carlson. I am too busy doing my job to going back and forth with people like Tucker Carlson. He can say what he wants to say. I wish he would not. I don’t think it’s productive.” Dr. Fauci stated.
But all Carlson did was quote Dr. Fauci and point out the alarming nature of Fauci’s comments about vaccines, and how Fauci was the real driver of anti-vaccine conspiracy theories and hesitancy.
In the broadcast Fauci referenced that Carlson played a clip of Fauci at a press briefing explaining that he may never allow the Johnson &Johnson vaccine to be used to again after six women – out of 7 million doses administered – developed a blood clot.
“You know, I think it would be premature to comment on that, and that’s the reason why the pause was done so that they could take a good look at it very carefully. Look at every different factor. I wouldn’t want to speculate as to what would happen.” Fauci said in the briefing.
Carlson explained that the Johnson and Johnson vaccine caused fewer blood clots than common birth control pills, and that Fauci’s alarmism over a vaccine that is safer than other similar products was leading Americans to wonder if the government was hiding anything.
“Now, Fauci has declared that because the Johnson & Johnson vaccine has injured six people — which, if true, would make that vaccine much safer not just than birth control pills, but safer than many other vaccines we’ve distributed in the past — because this vaccine has hurt six people out of seven million, we need to stop using it immediately. Does that make sense to you? No, it really doesn’t. It seems possible there’s a lot more going on here.” Carlson declared.
Carlson also played a clip of Fauci telling MSNBC that it’s too dangerous for fully vaccinated people to eat dinner indoors.
“No it’s still not OK for the simple reason that the level of infection in the community is still really disturbingly high … And if you are vaccinated, please remember that you still have to be careful and not get involved in crowded situations, particularly indoors where people are not wearing masks.” Fauci said in an interview on MSNBC.
Carlson’s point was not that he was questioning the efficacy of vaccines.
It was that Dr. Fauci was.
Either the vaccine works or it doesn’t.
And Dr. Fauci telling Americans that even if you are fully vaccinated you still have to wear masks and can’t resume normal activities many Americans are going to question if they should take the vaccine since Dr. Fauci is telling them their lives won’t change for the better.
