Fauci fires back at Rep. Jim Jordan during heated exchange about pandemic 1

 

Republican Rep. Jim Jordan and the nation's top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci got into a heated exchange Thursday over the country's Covid-19 mitigation measures, which ended with Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters telling Jordan to "shut your mouth."
During a House subcommittee hearing about federal government's response to the pandemic, Jordan, an Ohio conservative, asked Fauci when the nation can begin relaxing physical distancing measures and mask-wearing — posing it as a question as to when Americans will regain their freedom and liberties.
Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, started to respond that the time will be when the United States has more Americans vaccinated and has a level of coronavirus infection that is low enough that it's "no longer a threat."
Jordan then interrupted Fauci, asking for a specific number.
"We had 15 days of 'slow the spread' turn into one year of lost liberty," Jordan said. "What metrics, what measures, what has to happen before Americans get more freedoms back?"
"You're indicating liberty and freedom. I look at it as a public health measure to prevent people from dying and going to the hospital," Fauci countered. "This will end, for sure, when we get the level of infection very low. It is now at such a high level, there is a threat again of major surges."
Fauci later said to Jordan, "You're making this a personal thing and it isn't."
"It's not a personal thing," Jordan fired back.
"No, you are," Fauci said, sounding exasperated. "That is exactly what you're doing."
Fauci defended his recommendations as being consistent and based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Covid-19 guidance.
"Right now, we have about 60,000 infections a day, which is a very large risk for resurge. We're not talking about liberties. We're talking about a pandemic that has killed 560,000 Americans," said Fauci, who later said his "best estimate" would be to have the number of infections per day to be "well below" 10,000 a day.

    If only Gym was this passionate when it came to defending wrestlers who were sexually assaulted.

      I know what I’m getting J.Jordan for Xmas- a 👔 that is NOT YELLOW

    • @Jan Edwards at least he doesn’t assault children like someone we know sooo dear…..

      Jordan needs some Covid-19 in his life

    • @Bob Davis That’s really unfortunate and horrible. I feel for Vietnam Veterans (they were probably the most mistreated vets in modern history). I visit them at the local VFW here in Az when I can. They really got shafted and some were as young as 15 years old like Dan Bullock fighting in the jungle. Yeah it’s unfortunate these idiots don’t understand or will ever understand. They eat whatever CNN feeds them.

    • @Polo Jack Yea exposed by a quack that is old news. Okeefe has no parts to go face to face. Been at it for ten years had numerous lawsuits and still loses. But most of all ten years and still less than a million followers. All he got was a guy fired using a matt gaetz hooker. Yippee.

  2. The most important thing we can do in this country is keep GYM Jordan and Matt Gaetz away from our children.

    First Gaetz falls, next in line is Jim Jordan. George Clooney is producing a documentary about the Ohio State wrestling scandal. Soon Mr. Jordan’s empty soul will be exposed to the world.

  4. The irony is that Gym didn’t care about the freedom and liberty of the young men who were victims under his care.

      @Silence DoGood which lie?

      He protected the wrestlerblower

    • WileyCoyote69 | April 15, 2021 at 9:10 PM | Reply

      I’m convinced he actually liked them getting violated. That’s how he got his rocks off.

    • There is also more irony that nothing from the past, on ANY of their lives has anything to do with him not answering the question…..but nice deflection, you should have been a goalie.

    • WileyCoyote69 | April 15, 2021 at 9:55 PM | Reply

      @Silence DoGood No. No it wasn’t. If it was, why is it still being investigated, both criminally and with multiple lawsuits? Including Jordan having his brother call up ex-wrestlers to threaten them if they testify. You know. Witness tampering.

  5. “Tell me Dr. Strauss, what is the acceptable number of athletes you can fondle before I am forced to report you?
    “Okay, how does 200 plus-or-minus sound to you?”
    “Thank you, doctor, that works for me.”

    Jordan sitting in the back seat: ” are we there yet”?
    Dad, driving: “no, not yet”
    Jordan: “are we there yet”
    Dad: “no not yet”
    Jordan: “are we there yet”
    Dad: 🙄

  7. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are all worthless if you don’t have a life to pursue it with.

      @Polo Jack I wish you would go watch something else, like your idiot friends on Fox. Leave CNN to us on the left. They influence us, we just happen to think alike. Like you and Fox.

      You are entitled to nothing, tough titty 📣🤷

      Jordan can’t resist any opportunity to prove that he’s a pompous jackass and his constituents love it.

      Politics in twenty first century USA is awfully strange.

      Hopefully we will see some positive changes in the future.

    • @Marty Baldwin i dont watch fox, but if you enjoy being brainwashed, have fun with it. I didn’t name my AR “commie killa” for nothing

      @Jay Trock Exactly. And whats crazy is Dr FRAUDCI replies “I’m not sure” when questioned why states who are fully open have lower number of cases.
      The same Dr that first said dont wear masks.
      The same Dr that says wear a mask.
      The same Dr that says wear 2 mask.
      You might as well wear the whole damn box on your face and live in fear.
      When the flu killed 500000 plus a few years ago, was their mass hysteria and unequal shutdowns?
      CNN just got exposed by Project Veritas for admitting about exaggerating Covid numbers.
      Check it out.
      Hope some people will wake up.

      @Liberal Dumbfuck he is reffering to the up votes…dingy.

    • Liberal Dumbfuck | April 15, 2021 at 10:54 PM | Reply

      @Rhonda Goodrum they did when they proposed them and when they passed them. That was a long time ago and it’s been excepted since then.

      @Liberal Dumbfuck You were trying to make a stupid point forgetting that your fellow red hats have been up in arms for a year about their freedoms to go to bars and restaurants and spread the virus as is their liberty to do. Those are the same people who would sue over food poisoning.

      Feel free to double down on your idiocy, but you’re only kidding yourself.

    • Liberal Dumbfuck | April 15, 2021 at 10:58 PM | Reply

      @Rhonda Goodrum I dont pay attention to the votes. Just the comments. Just because someone thumbs up something doesn’t mean they read it or understood it. I’ve tested that theory before.

    • Liberal Dumbfuck | April 15, 2021 at 11:07 PM | Reply

      @Concrete Lightbulb lol. Funny how no matter what is said, a screen name is all it takes to trigger someone. Thanks for playing along. I’m headed over to fox where I’m known as dumb trumptard to see how many idiots I can flush out there with a simple statement.

    Jim boy is upset because he is unable to hang out in the showers and locker room now.

  10. I attended church with Zoom….no complaint from me. I rather be safe than sorry.

  11. It is because of people like Jordan that the measures have to continue….

  12. Phil Donaldson | April 15, 2021 at 9:04 PM | Reply

    What about right to life? Loving our neighbors by keeping them safe is of utmost importance.

  13. Jordan’s mask is under his nose, Fauci’s mask is covering his nose…that’s all you need to know about this debate!!!😂😂🤣

  14. Seems to be more and more difficult to have a coherent conversation with any of them. Good on you Dr. Fauci, you kept your cool, much respected.

    Jordan is so ignorant lol 😂 she told him shut your mouth haha 😛

    5:50: “And shut your mouth!” Love it!

  17. “Respect the chair and shut your mouth.” Thank you!

  18. The height of ignorance is incredible when people are under pressure that they never felt in their life, especially when they are pushed out of their comfort zone.

  19. Ppl are going to church, they are are back eating in restaurants, and they are socializing in their homes. Thank you for telling him to…SHUT UP!

  20. “I want him to answer my question!” demanded Gym Jordan, after filibustering his own time away.
    “You need to respect the chair and shut your mouth!” Maxine Waters advised Gym Jordan sagely.
