5 scathing words from Dr.Anthony Fauci bring house down on ‘the Late Show’

Dr Anthony Fauci made headlines on Tuesday for retaliating against two of his Republican critics during a ruthless session on Capitol Hill. And “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert loved every minute of it.

“In the usual way, senator, you twist everything about me,” Fauci told Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Then pointed out that lawmakers often use attacks on him as fundraising ploys.

Or as Colbert translated it: “I have your results, senator, and I regret to inform you, you have tightened my boot in your ass.

Fauci, one of the country’s leading infectious disease experts, also clashed with Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), Who demanded that Fauci make his financial disclosures public. But as Fauci noted, these disclosures have been public for decades, as required by law.

“Our office can’t find them,” Marshall said.

When Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash.) Called the next Senator, a hot mic picked up Fauci’s uncensored thoughts about Marshall.

“What a jerk,” Fauci could be heard saying. “Jesus Christ.”

Colbert and his audience were there for that:
