Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio., called out Dr. Anthony Fauci on Thursday during an appearance on “The Ingraham Angle,” after the two engaged in a contentious back and forth at a House Oversight Committee hearing.
“In what world does an unelected bureaucrat get to tell American citizens when we can exercise our God-given liberties, when we can exercise our constitutional rights, our First Amendment rights?” Jordan asked Laura Ingraham.
The Ohio representative slammed Fauci for giving vague responses as to when various coronavirus restrictions will come to an end, including mandates against church gatherings and small business operations, and questioned when American life would return to pre-pandemic conditions.
“American people are tired of this,” Jordan said. “And just tell us when it’s going to end, when we get our rights back.”
Jordan said that those who question Dr. Fauci’s medical advice and suggestions for curtailing the coronavirus pandemic are oftentimes censored and “attacked,” referencing Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, an outspoken critic of Fauci.
Fauci himself has been criticized for a number of different comments and recommendations throughout the coronavirus pandemic, including cautioning against indoor dining after being vaccinated, an apparent flip-flop on herd immunity, among other things.
