It’s not what they say to your face.
It’s what they say behind your back.
And now we know what kind of person Dr. Fauci is when the camera’s aren’t rolling…
Or at least, when he THINKS the cameras aren’t rolling.
Dr. Fauci was caught on hot mic using God’s name in vain.
He muttered “Jesus Christ” when calling Senator Marshall (R-Kan) a “moron” for questioning him.
Does this sound like someone you want in charge of your health?
Does this sound like the kind of temperament of someone who knows what they are doing?

Can you imagine if President Trump were caught on hot mic behaving like that?
Despite being in the White House for four years, President Trump never had a similarly embarrassing moment.
Because the Trump you get is the same Trump behind closed doors.
Apparently, that’s not the case for Fauci.
According to The Hill:
White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci was caught on a hot mic Tuesday calling Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) “a moron” during his testimony before the Senate Health Committee on the omicron variant of the coronavirus.
The tense exchange came as Marshall questioned Fauci about disclosing more of his personal finances to Congress. Marshall cited a Forbes story that reported that Fauci is the highest-paid federal employee, earning $434,312 in 2020.
“I don’t understand why you’re asking me that question,” Fauci said. “My financial disclosure is public knowledge and has been so for the last 37 years or so.”
“The big tech giants are doing an incredible job of keeping it from being public,” Marshall responded. “We’ll continue to look for it. Where would we find it?”
“All you have to do is ask for it,” Fauci said. “You’re so misinformed, it’s extraordinary.”
After the back-and-forth ended, Fauci could be heard muttering, “What a moron” and “Jesus Christ” in a clip tweeted by Mediaite.
Marshall issued a statement responding to Fauci’s comments caught on the microphone later Tuesday, saying that calling him a “moron” may have “alleviated the stress of the least trusted bureaucrat in America.”
A doctor should be kind and patient.
They should want to explain medical issues to people, not insult them.
This hot mic exchange really reveals a lot about Fauci’s character, if you ask me.

As the highest paid government employee, don’t you think Fauci should show more professionalism?
Shouldn’t he show more respect to leaders who, you know, were actually elected by the people to represent them?
Instead, he appears to be looking down upon Senators doing the will of the people.
The Week confirms Fauci’s nasty outburst:
It’s a bad day to be arguing with Dr. Anthony Fauci.
After a heated exchange with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and criticism from Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), President Biden’s chief medical adviser was caught on an apparent hot mic muttering “what a moron” after “clashing” with Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) during a Tuesday Senate hearing, Mediaite reports.
The exasperated aside came after Marshall “repeatedly pressed Fauci to disclose more of his finances as the reported highest-paid federal employee,” Insider reports.
“All you have to do is ask for it,” Fauci told Marshall, per Insider. “You are so misinformed that it’s extraordinary.”
What do you think?
Was Fauci’s outburst called for?
Or is it an ugly revelation of his character?
