This past week we saw Dr Fauci testify several times before congress. Interestingly, he brought “receipts” to the sessions. I’m not going into those receipts and arguments. I’m here to focus on his hot mic comment. Dr. Anthony Fauci lost his temper when Sen. Roger Marshall, accused him of hiding financial disclosure forms required of public officials. Fauci said his financial disclosures have been public for years. The interesting bit is when at the end of the exchange, Fauci can be heard calling Senator Marshall a “moron.” I don’t believe Fauci apologized for said remark.
All I know, is that many of us could probably be caught in such a hot mic moment if we were walking around with recorders capturing every word. I know that I certainly could be caught laughing incredulously at some amazingly ludicrous statements this week.
People who took things way out of contect. And, further, people who purposely distorted words that were said to fit some political, personal agenda. I would have been caught saying something worse than moron. And that can actually end up being liberating.
