It’s almost as if Fauci’s inflated ego due to the king-like access he’s been given into the private lives of Americans is growing out of control.
Biden’s chief medical advisor called for the immediate firing of Fox News’ Jesse Watters over comments the host made at a Turning Point USA political conference this week.
Watters implored conservatives to engage in “Project Veritas”-style journalism against Fauci and others, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, explaining how to execute a “set up” question, and then go in for the rhetorical “kill shot.” Watters also told attendees to be “respectful” when they encounter political figures.
Sounds exactly like how liberal reporters interact with Donald Trump…minus the respect.
On Tuesday, Fauci said on CNN airwaves that Watters should be fired immediately from Fox News.
Fauci’s commentary also suggested Watters’ metaphors were not metaphors, but literal.
“I’m wondering how much that concerns you when you hear language like that about you and your wellbeing,” CNN host John Berman asked Fauci, noting that he wouldn’t air the clip “because frankly I think it’s dangerous.”
Fauci responded, saying, “That just is such a reflection of the craziness that goes on in society.”
He goes in like a lion but he leaves like a lamb — that’s Fauci’s strategy.
Fauci, who is not elected, has been a leading voice in lockdown measures since he began working with the White House on the pandemic threat under President Trump.
“Whatever network he’s on is not going to do anything,” Fauci asserted, speaking of Fox News. “The guy should be fired on the spot.”
"The guy should be fired on the spot," says Dr. Fauci about FOX News entertainer Jesse Waters.

During the political conference, Watters encouraged students to ask questions of political leaders and bureaucrats like Fauci, and to get it on camera.
“This is where you say, ‘Dr. Fauci, you funded risky research at a sloppy Chinese lab,’” Watters told attendees.
“‘The same lab that sprung this pandemic on the world. You know why people don’t trust you, don’t you?’ Boom. He is dead! His dead. He’s done. You do that in 30 seconds — it’s all you need, 30 seconds.”
Obviously Watters was not being literal in his describing of a “kill shot” and Fauci knows that full well. This is merely another rhetorical tactic to take down conservative voices one at a time.
The incendiary, dangerous, violent rhetoric against Dr. Fauci continues at AmericaFest. Fox News host Jesse Watters tells them how to go after him to harass him in public: “Now you go in with the kill shot – deadly. Because, with an ambush, he doesn’t see it coming.” pic.twitter.com/V34YZwDdPD

As seen below, Waters used the same metaphors when explaining how conservatives should confront Sen. Warren.
In a statement sent from Fox News, the network said “it’s more than clear” Watters’ was using a metaphor.
It’s only a matter of time before any public criticism of Dr. Fauci, the scamdemic, or the entirety of Biden’s administration will be considered “disinformation” and therefore rightfully prosecuted as a crime.
Free speech in the country is being destroyed before our very eyes.
