Republican lawmakers are demanding that top U.S. immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci be fired from his post, with one taking a unique tack.
Rep. Warren Davidson (R-OH) on Tuesday proposed the “FIRED Act,” which stands for “Fauci Incompetence Requires Early Dismissal.”
“Dr. Fauci represents everything that President Eisenhower warned us about in his farewell address: the scientific-technical elite steering the country toward their own ends. Americans have had decades of Dr. Fauci’s leadership, and he publicly failed to respond appropriately to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is time for him to step aside so that new leadership can ‘follow the science’ and start reopening America,” Davidson said in a statement.
