Former FOX News anchor Megyn Kelly has slammed Dr. Anthony Fauci for “lying” about the origins of COVID-19 while attacking mainstream media outlets that view him as a “mini-God.”
On the most recent episode of her Megyn Kelly Show, the host discussed recently released emails showing that Fauci commissioned a paper to disprove the possibility that COVID originated in a laboratory, before releasing the study at a press conference. at the White House weeks later.
She suggested that the doctor intentionally lied about the possibility that COVID-19 leaked from a laboratory in Wuhan, China, because the United States was funding gain-of-function research on coronaviruses in the laboratory.
“He didn’t give a *** where the pandemic originated, because China,” Kelly said.
He also mocked the mainstream media for not discussing the recent revelations because they view Fauci as a “superhero” and a “mini-God.”
His tirade came as top scientific advisers testified before Congress that there is mounting evidence that COVID originated in a laboratory and accused Fauci of trying to cover up the claims.

Over the weekend, House Republicans investigating the COVID-19 pandemic released explosive emails showing that the former head of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases commissioned and won final approval of a scientific paper that claimed that it was “unlikely” that the virus leaked from a laboratory
According to one of the paper’s authors, “our main work…has been focused on trying to refute any kind of laboratory theory.”
Then, just weeks after it was published in February 2020, Fauci cited the article in a press conference with former President Donald Trump when asked about the possibility of COVID leaking from a lab.
He said at the time: “There was a recent study where a group of highly-skilled evolutionary virologists looked at the sequence…in bats as they evolved and the mutations it took to get to the point where it’s now fully consistent with a species jump from an animal to a human being.’
“Then the role will be available,” Fauci continued. ‘I don’t have the authors right now, but we can make it available to you.’
Speaking about those revelations on her podcast on Wednesday, Megyn Kelly claimed that he “manipulated” reports about the origins of COVID.
“This guy, he’s unbelievable, he’s gotten away with it,” he said. “It’s amazing that the mainstream media doesn’t show more interest in what are clearly lies, they come out every week, but they love their little Fauci superhero doll.
“Every single one of them sleeps with him at his bedside every night, and no narrative can be advanced that contradicts him.”
He then mocked Fauci’s comments at the April 2020 press conference, saying, “Fauci came to basically pretending that he didn’t know these people” who wrote the report. ‘Like “I can’t even remember the names of the people who were in this role.”
At a press conference in April 2020, Fauci cited a study he commissioned to show that COVID did not originate in a laboratory.
Kelly also suggested that the reason Fauci denied the possibility that COVID could have originated in a laboratory is because he and the other authors of the paper “were in bed with China.”
“They were protecting China,” he said, as “the United States was funding all of this, including what was happening in the Wuhan lab, including the gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses to make them more lethal and more contagious and not We did. I don’t want anyone taking a closer look under the hood, that’s the truth.
“It was all lies,” Kelly continued. “Every day we get new emails showing that Fauci has been lying and his little virologists were involved in that Nature paper, which they used to criticize honest virologists for saying it was a lab leak.
“It was all a Fauci operation — it was disinformation, as the media likes to call it, and you won’t hear about it in the mainstream media,” which views Fauci as a “mini-God,” he said.
“It’s a little superhero left, and they won’t report on this,” Kelly continued.
He’s been lying to us all along, of course, his fingerprints were all over the Nature article. He didn’t give a damn where the pandemic originated, because China.
The United States was funding gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology before the outbreak.

Kelly’s comments came as experts, including a former Biden staffer and Donald Trump’s CDC director, testified before the House subcommittee investigating COVID that taxpayer-funded show profit likely caused the virus. that came from the chinese facility.
Dr. Jamie Metzl, a self-identified Democrat who worked for President Biden when he was in the Senate, said he favored the lab leak theory because “the Chinese government has done everything in its power.” to obstruct investigations.
He said China had an “incentive” to find the animal where Covid-19 had originated while pushing the theory of animal-to-human transmission, but had not done so.
“Since the Chinese government has every incentive to find an intermediary host, it is highly significant that it has not been found,” Metzl said. “I think it’s very telling after three years that we haven’t found it.”
