Dr. Anthony Fauci is calling for Fox News host Jesse Watters to be fired over recent comments Watters made at the right-wing America Fest event in Phoenix, Arizona. Watters suggested that people confront Fauci and tell him that he funded research at the Wuhan lab and then “boom, he is dead, he is dead, he’s done. You do that, thirty seconds, it’s all you need.”
Watters also used the terms “ambush” and “kill shot” when making his suggestions. Of course, Watters can just hide behind these being rhetorical devices and claim he doesn’t want anyone to literally kill Anthony Fauci. But given the vitriol against the nation’s top infectious disease doctor from the right, and given that Fauci has received a multitude of death threats, Watters should have known better.
Fauci responded this week to the Fox host’s comments and said that he should be “fired on the spot.” Fauci told CNN’s John Berman, “what kind of craziness is there in society these days? That’s awful that he said that. And he’s going to go, very likely, unaccountable. I mean whatever network he’s on is not going to do anything for him.” Unfortunately, Fauci’s prediction here is most likely going to be correct and hopefully his life is not put in even more danger over Watters’ comments.
