Fox News Star Doubles Down Against Dr. Anthony Fauci

( Fox News host Jesse Watters, quickly becoming one of the most popular hosts not just on the network but in all of network television, hit out at Dr. Anthony Fauci recently after the public health official called for him to be fired. Watters tore into the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, as well as the outgoing head of the National Institutes of Health Francis Collins, calling them “clown” who funded “dangerous experiments” in China.

Watters noted that even as more Americans get vaccinated, hospitalizations and deaths are still increasing and American universities are “completely locked down” owing to the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

“To top it all off, Kamala Harris just admitted to the LA Times the administration didn’t see any of this coming,” Watters said. “Gee, you mean, Biden’s scientific brain trust and Fauci and Collins couldn’t foresee any of this? Why am I not surprised?”

Watters made the comments after Fauci had earlier said during an interview on CNN that Watters should be fired from his Fox News job for making threats to kill – which isn’t true. He claimed that Watters’ use of the word “kill shot” was literal and that he was effectively calling for Fauci and others to be shot.


Fox News said on Tuesday that the network stands firmly behind Watters – which is good news. We all know that Fox News can be a little hit and miss at times, but on this one, Fox is standing squarely on the side of common sense. It just so happens that Fauci isn’t often on the side of common sense.
