North Carolina GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn called the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, a “demon doctor” while calling for a “formal commission” to investigate him.
“Madam Speaker, today I am calling for the creation of a formal commission to investigate the true origin of COVID-19, the role Fauci played in its creation, the false statements he made to members of Congress under oath, and they the hell Americans are funding the torture of puppies in Africa,” Cawthorn said from the House floor on Tuesday.
In regards to the puppies, Cawthorn is referring to allegations that Fauci’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) division funded a lab in Tunisia that conducted science experiments that allegedly mistreated dozens of beagle puppies.
“Americans deserve the truth, and this demon doctor must never be allowed to escape justice,” he added.
Cawthorn’s speech comes nearly a week after the Republican representative claimed society is trying to “de-masculate young men” and urged any mother raising a son to “raise them to be a monster.”
Members of the US Congress calling us “demon doctor” as I’ve written in @PLOSBiology antiscience aggression in America 🇺🇸 began with targeting the science, now they’re going after prominent US scientists https://t.co/LKriiz1C0a https://t.co/1chRyz9HuB
