Fauci Responds to Elon Musk

Dr. Anthony Fauci fired back at Elon Musk and other critics who are scorching the retired NIAID director’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, saying he can defend his actions.

“I can defend everything that I’ve said and done,” Fauci told “Your World” on Friday. “There was an explanation for it. This was a moving target right from the beginning and people need to appreciate that when something is obvious in January or February, that might not be the same in March, April, May, June or the rest of the summer. This has been an evolving problem. We’ve been through multiple variants. We’ve had a number of different challenges. Having said all that, I have no problem with defending what we did.”

Republican lawmakers, most notably Sen. Rand Paul, have promised to hold Fauci accountable in hearings about the origins of COVID-19. Twitter CEO Elon Musk previously teased the public about releasing “The Fauci Files” to expose the now-retired NIAID director, saying in a Tweet his pronouns are “Prosecute/Fauci.”

“I have no idea what he’s talking about…I wish I did,” Fauci told host Neil Cavuto. “I’m clueless about what he’s referring to. He’s talking about the ‘Fauci Files,’ was supposed to come out last week. We’re now at the end of this week. I just don’t understand what he’s doing.”

Fauci insisted he has “a great deal of respect for the process of oversight” and has “absolutely nothing to hide at all” in congressional hearings.

“A lot of people are spouting out a lot of things about me and Twitter,” Fauci said. “I don’t have a Twitter account. I’ve never had a Twitter account. I don’t intend on having a Twitter account and I’ve had nothing to do with Twitter…I don’t know what they’re talking about when they say that…I just don’t. I’m puzzled.”

Fauci also responded to Americans’ concerns following the CDC opening investigation into a possible correlation between the Bivalent Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and an increased risk of ischemic stroke for people aged 65 and older.

In the Friday statement, the CDC said that the preliminary signal hasn’t been identified with the Bivalent Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Fauci assured it is “still a very good idea to get vaccinated” and to get a booster.

He explained the safety signal “most likely” won’t be a relevant signal as several other monitoring mechanisms and surveillance have not found it and no other country has seen it.

“That’s the reason why they’re saying we’re not changing any of the recommendations of getting people vaccinated with the Bivalent booster, because as you’ve heard, the chances are three or more times less likely that you’ll be hospitalized if you get infected, if in fact you have the Bivalent booster, as opposed to those who did not get the booster,” he argued. “It’s still a very good idea to get vaccinated in the first place and to get your updated booster after that.”

    Well Dr. Fauci, glad to see that you now admit that COVID has been a moving and evolving problem, and that you do not (and never did) have all the answers. Why then did you push for such strict and controlling measures, and why did you shut down other information as it became available. Say what you will, but you have shown yourself to be an over-controlling, politically motivated, ignorant hypocrite who did not “follow the science”.

    Dr Death Fauci funded and designed the killer virus in China. He lied to Congress about the virus being weaponized. Now after millions of murders Fauci has not been charged in the World Court or US courts. This is a massive conspiracy to control world population. The vaccine sterilizes adults and children. Pushed onto healthy children killing many of them worldwide. Why hasn’t Fauci been terminated? He has killed more people than the Nazis during the war..

  • Phil Barberg says:

    I can only hope that I will live long enough to watch Dr Fauci being executed for his crimes.. No one in history has killed more people than Fauci.. Hopefully he will have a slow and painful death for all the survivors to watch the killer of their loved ones die… Just like the children he murdered.
