President Donald Trump called Dr. Anthing Fauci an “idiot” because of an Oct. 18 interview Fauci did with “60 Minutes” in which he criticized Trump’s super-spreader Rose Garden event to introduce Judge Amy Coney Barrett:
I was worried that he was going to get sick when I saw him in a completely precarious situation of crowded, no separation between people, and almost nobody wearing a mask. When I saw that on TV, I said, “Oh my goodness. Nothing good can come out of that, that’s gotta be a problem.” And then sure enough, it turned out to be a superspreader event.
Trump attacked the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases during a call to his campaign, notes CNN:
People are tired of Covid. I have these huge rallies. People are saying whatever. Just leave us alone. They’re tired of it. People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots.
