Megyn Kelly has denounced Dr. Anthony Fauci after the former top federal health official sat for an interview with The New York Times and tried to defend his record.
As Slay News reported, Fauci attempted to absolve himself of responsibility for the tyrannical measures that were enforced during the pandemic.
During a testy interview with the NY Times published Tuesday, Fauci denied playing a role in lockdowns.
“From a broad public-health standpoint, at the population level, masks work at the margins — maybe 10 percent,” he said.
“But for an individual who religiously wears a mask, a well-fitted KN95 or N95, it’s not at the margin. It really does work.
“But I think anything that instigated or intensified the culture wars just made things worse.
“And I have to be honest with you, David, when it comes to masking, I don’t know.
“But I do know that the culture wars have been really, really tough from a public-health standpoint.
“Ultimately an epidemiologist sees it as an epidemiological phenomenon.
“An economist sees it from an economic standpoint.
“And I see it from somebody in bed dying. And that’s the reason it just bothers me a lot — maybe more so than some others — that because of the culture wars you’re talking about, there are people who are not going to make use of an intervention that could have saved their lives.”
Megyn Kelly shot back at the claims from Fauci, Democrat President Joe Biden’s former chief medical advisor.
“Good riddance, he will not be missed,” Kelly said.
“We had our kids in these things for two years you absolute bastard,” she said of school shutdowns.
“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.
“Instead the man is self-congratulatory.
“He said he changed the number when he thought the public would tolerate a greater percentage.
“Another lie that he admitted to,” Kelly said.
“This wasn’t the evolution of anything, besides Anthony Fauci’s con.
“He mocked the idea of natural immunity, eliminating the need for his beloved, mandatory vaccines.
“Despite admitting years earlier that natural immunity is in fact the gold standard.
“His unexplained reversal cost millions their livelihoods.
“As of October of 2021, 5 percent of unvaccinated adults said they had lost a job due to a vaccine mandate, according to the Kaiser Foundation.
“But Fauci’s biggest lie was told under oath when he testified before Congress that his group at the NIH [National Institute of Health] never funded gain of function research in Wuhan, China.
“The kind that experiments on bat coronavirus to try to make them more lethal or more transmissible in humans.
“The NIH was later forced to admit in writing that it had indeed funded the research in China.
“We should pray this guy never gets near another grant or health group again in his life.
“He has destroyed the trust in public health. His decisions have hurt countless numbers of people … and we did indeed suffer irreparable harm, sir, whether you care to admit it or not.
“Good riddance Dr. Fauci.
“You are not truth and you will not be missed.”
