The White House press room turned into an absolute madhouse during Dr. Anthony Fauci’s farewell presser, as the world’s most hated doctor was slammed with hard hitting questions about the real origins of COVID-19.
Multiple reporters, scattered across the room, demanded answers from Fauci about the origins of the virus and what he did to get to the bottom of it.
Of course, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tried to shut down any questions related to the topic.
“We have a process here, I’m not calling on people who yell, and you’re being disrespectful to your colleagues and you’re being disrespectful to our guests,” she said to the journalists. “I will not call on you if you yell, and also you’re taking time off the clock because Dr. Fauci has to leave in a couple of minutes.”
However, it was clear that Jean-Pierre was attempting to prevent Fauci from having to answer any of the tough questions and reporters pressed on.
“You need to call people across the room! She has a valid question, she’s asked about the origin of COVID,” a reporter from Africa Today fired at Jean-Pierre.
The question that the Africa Today reporter is referencing was asked by The Daily Caller’s Diana Glebova, questioning Dr. Fauci about what he did to investigate the origins of COIVD.
Unfortunately, Jean-Pierre’s interference seems to have worked well enough as Fauci only ended up answering three questions and none of them were related to the origins of COVID.
One of the questions he did answer, meanwhile, was about House Republicans regaining the majority in Congress and the idea that they will investigate him.
The bureaucrat said that he has testified “hundreds of times” and would do so again if Republicans asked.
“I’ll let other people judge the value or not of my accomplishments, but I would like people to remember about what I’ve done, is that every day for all of those years I’ve given it everything that I have and I’ve never left anything on the field,” Fauci said.
In his final breath Fauci then called on people to get more experimental injections.
“Whether you’re a far-right Republican or a far-left Democrat, it doesn’t make any difference to me,” he said. “I look upon it the same way as I did in the emergency room in middle New York City when I was taking care of everybody who was coming in off the street.”
Fauci: “So my message and my final message — maybe the final message I give you from this podium — is that please, for your own safety, for that of your family, get your updated COVID-19 shot as soon as you’re eligible to protect yourself, your family and your community”
