White House Rushes To Defend Dr. Fauci From Accusations

According to Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House press secretary, Elon Musk’s opinions of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director and chief medical advisor to the president, Dr. Anthony Fauci, are dangerous.

Musk Offends Sensitive Left

On Monday, Jean-Pierre stated she felt Musk should be held accountable for his comments regarding Fauci and his thoughts are far removed from reality. She went on to praise Fauci for how he handled the coronavirus pandemic.

Her remarks are in response to Musk’s post on Twitter in which he stated his pronouns are “Prosecute/Fauci” and then replied to his own post when it gained traction by stating the truth resonates with people.

It’s said Fauci plans to call it quits at the end of this year.

After over 50 years of service, as well as having been the adviser to seven U.S. presidents, Fauci is now facing questions about how he has handled the coronavirus outbreak and other health crises, such as Ebola and avian flu.

However, it was his management of COVID-19 and his frank evaluations from the White House that claimed Americans were required to alter their actions in response to the deadly virus.

This made him a hero figure to some health advocates while serving under former President Donald Trump, a bad guy to some members of the right, and an unexpected celebrity among bureaucratic authorities who were accustomed to toiling in anonymity.

With almost a million COVID-19-related deaths documented, the United States has the highest fatality rate.

Republicans also vowed to investigate Fauci if they gained Congress’ control after the midterm elections, in which they gained the House, but the Senate was marginally secured by the Democrats.

Left Dramatizes Tweet

Fauci has reportedly received death threats. He received backlash from Trump and other conservatives who disapproved of the precautions he urged, such as immunization, social isolation, and masking to lessen the pandemic’s severity.

Recently, Fauci spoke out about his treatment and that of his family, saying individuals and organizations who threaten and bully him and his family are cowardly lowlifes.

He claims he learned to cope with the trolling and threats, but regrets the impact it had on his wife and children.

At least two individuals are currently under arrest in America for threatening the lives of Fauci’s wife and daughters.

While Musk’s post does not incite violence against Fauci or his family members, many are claiming that it was his intention.

It’s important to recognize the difference between a call to violence and simply stating a person should be held accountable for their wrongdoings. At no point did Musk mention harming Fauci or his family members.

This, however, is not what the left would have you believe. If their blatant lies had any morsel of truth to them, Musk would have to ban himself from his own platform.
