Must See: Fauci Calls US Senator A Moron In Hot Mic Slip-Up

Written By BlabberBuzz | Thursday, 13 January 2022 09:30

After a heated argument in a hearing Tuesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci overheard on a hot mic offending a Republican senator.

President Joe Biden's Chief Medical Adviser called Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall a "moron" after the Republican asked Fauci whether he would be willing to disclose his financial information.

The question comes after reports in recent weeks said that the doctor will be making at least $350,000 per year after he retires from his job as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. This government pension is the largest in U.S. history.

"My financial disclosures are public knowledge and have been so," Fauci told Marshall. "You are getting amazingly wrong information," he continued after the senator cast doubt on whether Fauci has been completely transparent regarding his current and past investments.

Marshall stated that his office could not locate the documents, after which Fauci emphasized that his financial disclosure information is accessible to the public. The line of questioning then ended, but Fauci's frustration boiled over, even as the next senator was called upon.

"What a moron," Fauci announced. "Jesus Christ."

Hours after the heated exchange went viral, Marshall replied with a press release that insisted "contrary to what Dr. Fauci said," his "financial disclosures for the years of the COVID pandemic are not public."

The senator continued, "I understand that Anthony Fauci had a very frustrating day: having a bombshell report show he in fact did award U.S. tax dollars for gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and being called out about his personal financial disclosure during the COVID pandemic NOT being publically available must be very frustrating."

Marshall announced that Fauci calling him "a moron during a Senate hearing may have alleviated the stress," though it didn't help to "take away from the facts."

Fauci was asked to respond to the hot mic moment during an appearance on MSNBC with host Chris Hayes.

"He was implying, if you listen to the entire dialogue, that in my position, responsible for drug trials and having so-called inside knowledge of what drug works and what drug doesn't work, that maybe I was making investments sort of ... ahead of the game here. He was totally implying that," Fauci stated.

"And he made the statement ... 'We can't get your financial statement.' It was stunning to me that a United States senator doesn't realize that my financial statement is public knowledge. It was just, like, where have you been?"
