Dr. Anthony Fauci, former medical adviser to President Joe Biden, was seen being grilled by GOP lawmakers Monday while testifying during the House Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Fauci appeared before the committee to discuss his leadership amid the COVID-19 lockdowns, during which many cities and companies eventually required masking, six-foot distancing, and vaccinations. However, while testifying, Republican lawmakers like Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene refused to address the former medical adviser as a doctor, stating that he should be in prison.

Greene called out Fauci’s use of over $400,000 was directed to a University of Georgia researcher in 2020 to test an experimental drug on beagles that were intentionally infected with disease-causing parasites while he was director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

“I want to tell you this is disgusting and evil, what you signed off on and these experiments that happened to beagles paid for by the American taxpayer, and I want you to know Americans don’t pay their taxes for animals to be tortured like this, so this type of science that you are representing, Mr. Fauci, is abhorrent and it needs to stop,” Greene stated.

“You’re not doctor; you’re Mr. Fauci,” she added, before stating that his license should be “revoked” and he “belongs in prison.”

The former medical advisor was also called out by Republican Georgia Rep. Rich McCormick, who played an audio recording of an interview in which Fauci was heard stating that they should push vaccine mandates by making things “difficult” for Americans so that they’d drop their “ideological bullshit.”

“Once people feel empowered and protected legally, you are going to have schools, universities, and colleges are going to say, ‘You want to come to this college buddy, you’re going to get vaccinated, lady, you’re going to get vaccinated,’” Fauci stated during an interview.

“Big corporations like Amazon and Facebook, and all those others, are going to say, ‘You want to work for us, get vaccinated,’ and it’s proven that when you make it difficult for people in their lives, they lose their ideological bullshit and they get vaccinated,” he continued.

McCormick was heard pressing Fauci on his rhetoric, asking if people who refused the vaccine believed in “ideological bullshit,” to which the former medical adviser denied.

“You affected people’s ability to work, travel, be educated, to actually flourish in America, to self-determine, as well as God given rights,” McCormick stated.

Later on Monday evening, Fauci was seen on CNN with host Kaitlan Collins expressing his shock around the “level of vitriol” he received from the hearing, stating that there was “nothing about trying to better.”
