White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre blasted newly crowned Twitter CEO Elon Musk for his “disgusting” personal attacks against the government’s top COVID doctor, Anthony Fauci.
“These personal attacks that we have been seeing are dangerous, on Dr. Fauci and other public health professionals as well,” Jean-Pierre spat at Monday’s White House press briefing.
“They are disgusting and they are divorced from reality,” she complained to reporters. “And we will continue to call that out.”
In between the releases of the “Twitter Files,” which have exposed how the woke social platform was silencing conservative voices while helmed by founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey, Musk took a shot at the outgoing director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
“My Pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci,” Musk tweeted on Sunday. “Truth resonates…” he added.
He followed the initial tweet up with a “Lord of the Rings” meme, with Fauci’s head superimposed over franchise villain Grima Wormtongue whispering, “just one more lockdown, my king” to Biden as aging King Theoden of Rohan.
“Twitter was Wormtongue to the World,” he added early Monday morning.
“These are incredibly dangerous — these personal attacks that we are seeing. Dr. Fauci has served under seven Republican and Democratic presidents, we cannot forget that. He has given his almost entire career to civil service,” Jean-Pierre criticized on Monday.
She also noted that the people of the United States were “fortunate” that Fauci, 81, who is finally retiring from his role as chief medical advisor to the president at the end of this year, has “devoted his career” to public service.
“His work on infectious disease from HIV/AIDS to COVID has saved countless lives,” Jean-Pierre added.
NY Congressman Richie Torres torched Musk for trying to “criminalize” Fauci ” because he disagrees with him.”
Conservative YouTuber David Freiheit pointed out that Musk only want’s to “criminalize” the nation’s top doc, “because Fauci lied under oath, engaged in gain of function research in a Chinese lab, jeopardized the entire planet, and arguably contributed to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.”
The SpaceX CEO simply replied, “correct,” on Sunday afternoon.
Former CIA director John O. Brennan lashed out at Musk for daring to suggest that Fauci is anything less than innately good.
“Dr. Fauci is a national hero who will be remembered for generations to come for his innate goodness & many contributions to public health,” he posted on Monday.
“Despite your business success, you will be remembered most for fueling public hate & divisions. You may have money, but you have no class,” the former Obama White House official wrote.
“Good people in democracies need a more effective way to prevent attention-craving, emotionally immature, & highly devious individuals, esp those of means, from being socially, culturally, & politically destructive.”
Musk replied back, “your house is glass.”
He also came under fire from former NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, for mocking the use of pronouns.
“Elon, please don’t mock and promote hate toward already marginalized and at-risk-of-violence members of the #LGBTQ+ community,” Kelly replied. “They are real people with real feelings.”
Another responder clarified that “Objecting to pronoun rituals is not mocking gay people or trans people.”
“It is rejecting a regressive ideology that is being force fed across the culture, harming many—most devastatingly kids who can’t escape these rituals & accompanying ideology in classrooms.”
Musk tweeted that her rebuttal was “perfectly said.”
The latest installment of the “Twitter Files” was dropped on Monday, and Musk has received nothing but criticism from liberals for detailing that the platform banned former President Donald Trump, despite internally acknowledging that he violated none of their policies.
“The Left is having nuclear meltdowns because [Musk] is dropping truth bombs and they’ve been insulated inside their bubble of lies and propaganda for years,” someone else added.
“Easy to fool people, but it is almost impossible to convince people that they have been fooled,” the Twitter CEO concurred.
