Fox News host Tucker Carlson took aim at Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday night,
unleashing a furious tirade against the top infectious disease expert, whom he
called the “chief buffoon.”

Piggybacking on Sen. Rand Paul’s criticism of Fauci at Tuesday’s Senate hearing
on the coronavirus pandemic, Carlson said the Republican lawmaker was right to
complain about experts’ predictions about the virus.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson took aim at Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday night,
unleashing a furious tirade against the top infectious disease expert, whom he
called the “chief buffoon.”

Piggybacking on Sen. Rand Paul’s criticism of Fauci at Tuesday’s Senate hearing
on the coronavirus pandemic, Carlson said the Republican lawmaker was right to
complain about experts’ predictions about the virus.

“A lot of wrong predictions have come out of Washington on the question of the
coronavirus, and quite a few of them came directly from Dr. Fauci himself. We
are not singling him out or attacking him,” the Fox News star declared before
devoting the next few minutes to directly attacking the White House coronavirus
task force member.

Carlson proceeded to point out some of the positions Fauci has shifted on
throughout the crisis, such as on face masks. After playing a clip of the
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease director saying in March
that “there’s no reason for people to be walking around in a mask” at that time,
Carlson appeared to liken Fauci to a false messiah.

“This might be painful for some people, it’s kind of like learning a religion is
fake,” he said. “But this religion is fake! It shouldn’t be a religion in the
first place. It’s supposed to be science. You are supposed to admit when you are
wrong and you are supposed to be totally transparent with your reasoning.”

The conservative host also aired a Jan. 21 interview of Fauci and claimed that
Fauci at the time was telling Americans the virus was nothing to worry about. In
the interview, Fauci said that “we need to take it seriously” but that “this is
not something that the citizens of the United States right now should be worried
about.” (The first confirmed case of the virus had just been documented in the
United States at the time.)

The primetime host also took issue with Fauci encouraging people last month to
refrain from shaking hands, ridiculing the doctor for purportedly claiming that
it was also fine to hook up for casual sex during the pandemic. (Fauci actually
said people should weigh the risks and should postpone hooking up if they “don't
want to have any part of this virus.”)

“This is buffoon-level stuff at that point and we are not doing this to mock the
guy,” Carlson said. “I mean anyone who talks as much as Anthony Fauci does is
apt to say some stupid things.”

Grousing that “some people think that he should be dictator for the duration of
this crisis,” Carlson complained that Fauci—a public health expert—hasn’t been
elected to anything and that the American people haven’t had any say in picking
him.

Carlson later brought on conservative activist Ned Ryun to criticize Fauci some
more. During their conversation, in which Ryun repeatedly questioned why Fauci
was still serving in his role, Carlson got in one last shot at the infectious
disease expert.

“Now we’re finding, this golden calf of the administrative state is ringing
hollow, and Fauci, to be very blunt, is the face of this failed administrative
state. You have to question the entire premise of this!” Ryun bellowed.

“The chief buffoon of the professional class,” said Carlson, who’s been credited
with pushing the president to finally take the pandemic seriously.

Welcome to the world of science, jackass Carlson, where you only
get the best guess based on what is known at the time of the
guess.

Obama bore the blunt of his wrath the following day.
Obama undoubtedly wears Carlson's wrath as a badge of honor.
