    Megyn Kelly Shreds Fauci After Comments He Made On Mask Effectiveness

    Published on

    Former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly has criticized Dr. Anthony Fauci for an interview in which he appeared to suggest that COVID masks are not particularly effective.

    “From a broad public-health standpoint, at the population level, masks work at the margins — maybe 10 percent,” he said in the interview, and that made Kelly furious.


    To take his full quotation into account, however, he did not claim that masks were only 10% effective.

    “From a broad public-health standpoint, at the population level, masks work at the margins — maybe 10 percent. But for an individual who religiously wears a mask, a well-fitted KN95 or N95, it’s not at the margin. It really does work,” he said to The New York Times.

    “But I think anything that instigated or intensified the culture wars just made things worse. And I have to be honest with you, David, when it comes to masking, I don’t know. But I do know that the culture wars have been really, really tough from a public-health standpoint. Ultimately an epidemiologist sees it as an epidemiological phenomenon. An economist sees it from an economic standpoint. And I see it from somebody in bed dying. And that’s the reason it just bothers me a lot — maybe more so than some others — that because of the culture wars you’re talking about, there are people who are not going to make use of an intervention that could have saved their lives,” he said.

    However, this is not the first time Kelly has denigrated Fauci. Kelly opened her SiriusXM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast with a brutal takedown of Fauci, arguing that he should never be in a position of authority again. This occurred in August, after Fauci announced his impending retirement.

    “Good riddance,” she said, adding that he would “not be missed.”

    “The truth is that Dr. Fauci, who had a greater hand than anyone in causing Americans to lose their jobs, years of learning, and even their lives — thanks to the social and economic upheaval he helped foist upon us during the pandemic — ought to be ashamed to show his face in polite society,” Kelly explained. “Instead the man is self-congratulatory.”

    “He said he changed the number when he thought the public would tolerate a greater percentage,” the former Fox News host answered her own question. “Another lie that he admitted to. This wasn’t the evolution of anything, besides Anthony Fauci’s con.”

    “He mocked the idea of natural immunity, eliminating the need for his beloved, mandatory vaccines,” she added. “Despite admitting years earlier that natural immunity is in fact the gold standard. His unexplained reversal cost millions their livelihoods. As of October of 2021, 5 percent of unvaccinated adults said they had lost a job due to a vaccine mandate, according to the Kaiser Foundation.”

    “But Fauci’s biggest lie was told under oath when he testified before Congress that his group at the NIH [National Institute of Health] never funded gain of function research in Wuhan, China,” Kelly continued. “The kind that experiments on bat coronavirus to try to make them more lethal or more transmissible in humans.”
