WEST VIRGINIA (FLV) – In an appearance on Tim Pool’s TimcastIRL, Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo slammed Chief Medical Advisor to the President and NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci as a “creepy guy” who mishandled the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Well, you know, I think Dr. Fauci is a creepy guy. To be totally honest, he gives me the creeps,” Ladapo said. “He’s enigmatic [of a] physician who is really more of a politician, and more about, you know, sort of agendas than about health. I mean, that’s been very obvious with how he handled the pandemic.”
The top Florida doctor emphasized that COVID-19 disproportionately put the obese population at risk compared to healthy-weighted individuals and that public health messaging should have centered on diet and exercise.
“You have a condition where obesity is a major risk factor. Did he ever say, ‘Hey Americans, by the way, you know, lose weight if you’re overweight, get some exercise?’ I didn’t hear that out of his mouth,” Ladapo continued.
Pool responded, “He did say vitamin D is important.”
“He did say that once, and, he said that once, alright,” Ladapo said.
After news surfaced of Fauci’s impending resignation from the federal government later this year, Ladapo celebrated on Twitter.
Ladapo has previously criticized Fauci and the Biden Administration’s health and policy recommendations during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, Fauci has been a supporter of children receiving the COVID vaccine while the Florida Department of Health recommended against it.
“Even though the chances of [a child] getting sick and seriously ill are small — why do you want to take a chance of that with your child, when you can essentially protect the child by an intervention that is proven to be both highly effective and very safe?” Fauci asked.
Instead, Ladapo said he recommended against pediatric COVID-19 vaccines for children under five citing “no data” that prove the vaccine is more effective than the placebo in reducing severe illness.
