During a heated exchange at a Senate Health Committee meeting, Dr. Anthony Facui appeared to call U.S. Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS) a “moron.”
Fauci was field questions from lawmakers regarding the country’s COVID-19 response. According to USA Today, Moran was questioning the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases on his financial disclosure.
Throughout the conversation, Fauci was visibly frustrated and repeatedly called the Senator “misinformed.” At the end of the altercation, Fauci could be heard quietly saying “what a moron, Jesus Christ!”
Fauci, as a top health advisor to President Joe Biden, is a public official. Therefore his financial records are to be public information per the Freedom of Information Act. However, Marshall announced his office is unable to access it. Fauci reportedly makes over $400,000, making him the highest-paid federal government employee.
Marshall said, “This is a huge issue. Wouldn’t you agree with me that you see things before members of Congress would see them so there is an air of appearance that there are some shenanigans going on. I assume that’s not the case.”
Fauci responded, “What are you talking about? My financial disclosures are public knowledge and have been so. You have amazingly wrong information.”
