Jim Jordan (R-OH) Presses Dr. Fauci On COVID-19 Protest Hypocrisy

Zero Hedge: Friday’s testimony before the House coronavirus subcommittee on Friday was supposed to be just another snoozefest with Dr. Fauci fielding the same questions from obsequious Democrats and hostile Republicans.

But viewers perked up roughly 2 hours into the hearing on Friday when Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan, one of the good doctor’s most vocal critics, was called on to ask a question.

His initial question was simple enough: “Dr. Fauci,” Jordan asked. “Can protests spread the virus?”

Considering the straightforwardness of the question, Dr. Fauci seemed surprisingly startled. He took a few moments to gather his thoughts, then responded that all large gatherings where people aren’t complying with all social distancing recommendations are ill-advised – though, the good doctor insisted, he didn’t want to make a specific judgment about what types of activities are permissible, and which aren’t.

But Jordan soon pointed out that the good doctor has made a lot of “judgment calls” – including opposing in-person worship and other practices seemingly protected by the first amendment.

Aside from the high probability that speaking out against the protests would instantly transform him into a target of deranged leftists, why does the good doctor feel justified to couch all criticisms of the protests in such mealymouthed language, while treating work, worship and other “rights” with much less respect?

He couldn’t answer. Instead, he reiterated that it wasn’t for him to say.

As far as Friday entertainment goes, Jordan’s grilling is one to remember.

  2. Jordan: “Dr. Fauci, do protests increase the spread of the virus?”

    Fauci: “Do protests increase the spread of the virus.”

    Is there an echo in here? Answer the question, you grinning goblin. Your fifteen minutes is not so fun anymore, is it?

  5. I really liked this.

    I do wish, however, that when Fauci kep saying “crowds”, Jim would have just asked him yes/no are these “crowds”.

  6. We know Fauci foretold The epidemic 3 years ago, during this administration.
    We know US and Canada supplied funding to the lab in China.
    We know China, Dr. Fauci, French Company Sanofi Pasteur, George Soros and the Gates Foundation, are all involved.
    Are they so demented, that they would continue to infect people to keep this farce on the front page?
    Probably.

  7. I got creamed today by fellow ‘commenter’s’ at the hill …I said this about farce/Jim Jordon:
    Try to stay on track fellow commenters – the issue at hand is whether the protests should be limited in size per dr. farce’s recommendations as he has done in the past. Throwing a hand at Jim Jordon’s questions do not make it go away. Dr. farce truly is a farce.

  8. ‘People’ at the hill tried to cream me today – very rude – all I said was this and it got REMOVED!

  9. Fauci is a weasel, Mr. Pinko. I think Jordon let him weasel away so everyone could see him squirm. Clever. +Classy.

  10. @janitor & @Mr. Pinko have Jordan pegged. He has a great forceful attitude but uses that attitude poorly.

    “Should the govt limit the size of a protesting crowd the same way it limits the size of a worshipping crowd? Yes or no.”

  11. “Jordan is Goudy v.2. Talks the talk but doesn’t walk the walk.”

    Very disappointed in the fact Jordan took money from Google and others. He sounded like a guilty little kid on Tucker. Do we have any law makers that have not been compromised?
