‘F**k you, Dr Fauci!’: Megyn Kelly epically UNLOADS after he says he'll 'consider' testifying at GOP hearing
'You get a congressional subpoena, you show up, or you get the Steve Bannon treatment,' said Megyn Kelly
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Megyn Kelly took off at Dr Anthony Fauci in her recent podcast episode. Her bitterly critical monologue on the Thursday episode dragged Fauci through the ground for his more than a casual response to testifying in front of a Republican-held Congress over his handling of the pandemic. When Dr Anthony Fauci said he would "consider" testifying, it seemed to have ticked off Kelly a bit more than usual.
'The Megyn Kelly Show', hosted by Megyn Kelly, of course, started with a bang on Thursday, August 25, as she smothered Fauci into pieces for his recent comments on the potential congressional subpoena. When Dr Fauci said he would "consider," Kelly said, "He sounds like he’s been invited to afternoon tea at one of our houses." She made fun of the Chief Medical Advisor to the President of the United States, his sentiments and mocked his comments saying, "Only if it’s oversight because what I experienced was personal attacks." Kelly, a former Fox News and NBC Today host, said Fauci must be held responsible for suggesting lockdown which crippled business and did not even lead to controlled deaths.
Then the 51-year-old host snapped out of character and said, "F**k you, Dr 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 faces two years in prison for not appearing before the House select committee investigating January 6, 2021, riots at the US Capitol. He was convicted last month of two counts of contempt of Congress.
Megyn Kelly slams Dr Anthony Fauci
Fauci's "would consider" comments come after the Republican Party is expected to retake the majority in the House after midterm elections this coming fall. Kelly slammed Fauci for his alleged links to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which is considered to be the source of the leak, and funding the 'gain of function' research that makes viruses stronger in hopes of finding treatments for them. She then emphasized the inefficiency of the vaccines and the boosters that were rendered useless against the latest strains.
Kelly's comments come on the table after Fauci appeared on Fox News. While appearing on Fox News this Tuesday, Fauci talked about his retirement and if he has anything to hide. He says, "I have nothing to hide. I can defend everything I've done and every decision I've made. So, I'm not afraid of that at all. What has happened up to now is more of a character assassination than it is oversight. So sure, I'd be happy to cooperate so long as we make it something that is a dignified oversight, which it should be and not just bringing up ridiculous things and attacking my character. That's not oversight."
