People like Tucker Carlson and Peter Navarro who “weapon lies kill people”

Biden’s chief medical adviser, Anthony Fauci, said on MSNBC’s “The Beat” on Tuesday that media figures and politicians who criticized him were “killing people.”

On his Fox News Show, Tucker Carlson said, “He’s decided to unilaterally end Christmas.”

In an interview with OAN, former Trump administration adviser Peter Navarro said, “We want to take Fauci down and put him in an orange jumpsuit.”

Fauci said, “I’m not here for a popularity contest. I have devoted my entire 50-year professional career to trying to save and preserve the health and lives of the American people. As an infectious disease doctor who deals with epidemics, it spreads to the rest of the world. That’s what I do. Praise or arrows and slingshots are really irrelevant. I do what science prompts you to do, and I do. I am not here for a popularity contest. I’m trying to save lives. People who fabricate lies as weapons kill people. So the only question I have is that when you show Tucker Carlson and Peter Navarro criticizing me, I take that as a badge of honor.

He added: “I just wanted to make this statement. People throw out these people who make ridiculous statements. They tell people to do things that they are going to die of and tell me I should go to jail. Like they say in my old Brooklyn neighborhood, give me a break.
