Donald Trump Jr. said Fauci doesn’t just need to be fired, he needs to be investigated:
Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter on Thursday to blast New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci over their handling of the Covid pandemic and their ‘insane amount of hubris and arrogance’.
The son of former President Trump hit out at the pair they were engulfed in a string of scandals – the latest the leak of emails which appear to show Dr Fauci was made aware that the virus could have been engineered in a lab.
‘These morons really see themselves as heroes when in their respective positions anyone could credibly argue they did the worst job imaginable,’ he tweeted. ‘Cuomo #49 or 50 out of 50 and Fauci… well the emails speak for themselves. Insane amount of hubris and arrogance!’
Don Jr linked to a December 2020 exchange between Fauci and Cuomo where the pair congratulated each other for their successes during the pandemic, and compared themselves to the actors Al Pacino and Robert De Niro.
We’re like the modern day De Niro or Pacino you can be whichever you want, you can be the De Niro or Pacino, whichever you want. Fauci and Cuomo,’ Cuomo said. ‘Who do you want to be De Niro or Pacino?’
‘I love them both,’ Fauci replied. ‘I love them both I don’t want to insult one or the other.’
