The criticism of Anthony Fauci only gets louder. On this occasion, Fox News host Tucker Carlson talked about the doctor’s emails, asserting that he should be brought to justice and face a criminal investigation.
“The utter fraudulence of Tony Fauci is obvious now and it’s widely acknowledged,” Carlson charged. “But it was not always obvious. In March of last year, we interviewed Fauci on this show. We treated him with respect. We took his answer seriously,” he added.
Carlson denounced the vote of confidence Americans initially gave Fauci. “We also assumed he must be honest, but we were wrong.” He stated that before long it became clear that Fauci was just “another sleazy Federal bureaucrat, deeply political, and often dishonest.”
He also claimed that in the end the doctor was implicated in the very COVID pandemic he was initially called upon to fight. Fauci, Carlson said, supported the grotesque and dangerous experiments that seemed to have made the virus possible.
The host recalled that the doctor was concerned that the coronavirus was known to have originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and wonders why he would be concerned that Americans knew that.
“Possibly,” Carson continued, “because he knew perfectly well that he had funded gain-of-function experiments in that same lab.”
“Is Tony Fauci under criminal investigation? We can only hope he is. He certainly deserves it,” Tucker Carlson added.
After elaborating on the doctor’s emails, Carlson asserted, “In retrospect, that looks a lot like perjury.” To Carlson, the doctor lied, “he seemed determined to hide those facts from the public. Again, why?” he asked.
One reason, Carlson argued, is the constant back-and-forth between the doctor and Bill Gates. Tucker Carlson reminded viewers that Bill Gates is not a doctor, not a scientist, but a very rich man who made his fortune making software for office computers.
Countless times the name Bill Gates is linked to Fauci. The presenter then set out to ask questions that had not been asked since the leak of the emails.
Has Bill Gates profited in any way from Tony Fauci’s COVID guidance? That would definitely be worth knowing, immediately. And yet, we don’t know. Our media don’t seem interested in finding out,” he observed.
Tucker Carlson, who pulled no punches against the other traditional media outlets, showed CNN’s biased coverage of the email leak: “Thousands of e- mails from and to Dr. Fauci reveal the weight that came with his role as a rare source of frank honesty within the Trump administration’s COVID-19 Task Force.”
The host then revealed that not only was CNN the perpetrator of such a dishonest act. He claimed that no journalist asked about such emails at the White House press briefing.
“Tony Fauci is too big to question at this point,” Carlson said. He then quoted a message from a Biden voter to Fauci where he blurts out a mawkish thank-you: “Oh, my God, is there anything I can do for you besides being grateful?” Carlson quips, “Wash my feet with your tears, Fauci may have responded.”
