Chaos Breaks Out As Reporters Ask Fauci About COVID Origins
Chaos broke out in the White House press room on Tuesday, after multiple reporters asked Anthony Fauci questions about the origins of Covid-19 and related investigations.
As reporters began asking questions, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre attempted to shut down the discussion.
“We have a process here, I’m not calling on people who yell, and you’re being disrespectful to your colleagues and you’re being disrespectful to our guests,” she said, scolding the journalists. “I will not call on you if you yell, and also you’re taking time off the clock because Dr. Fauci has to leave in a couple of minutes.”
“You need to call people across the room! She has a valid question, she’s asked about the origin of COVID,” a reporter from Africa Today shot back.
