‘What a Moron!’: Fed-Up Dr. Fauci Heard On Hot Mic Calling GOP Senator Who Tried To Smear Him ‘A Moron’

A video posted n Twitter by Mediaite shows the moment an exasperated Dr. Anthony Fauci was heard on a hot mic calling GOP Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) a “moron” after the Kansas Republican repeatedly demanded more financial disclosure from Fauci during a Senate hearing on Tuesday.

Holding up a giant fake paycheck, Marshall sought to illustrate the fact that he couldn’t find Fauci’s public financial disclosure. Fauci shot back saying that his finances were readily available, and had been “for the last 37 years or so.”

He added that Marshall, who blamed “the big tech giants” for concealing Fauci’s finances, just had to file a public information act request to view his disclosures.

“You are so misinformed that it’s extraordinary,” the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said. As Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) shut Marshall down and regained control of the proceedings, Fauci could be heard muttering to himself, “What a moron. Jesus Christ.”
