‘I’m done with you!’ Hostile WH spox freaks out on reporter trying to question Fauci on COVID origin

Now that the midterm elections are over, the Biden regime is once again shifting into COVID mode for the holidays and on Tuesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci was trotted out during the daily press briefing where he was fiercely protected from reporters with legitimate questions who were shouted down by White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

President Joe Biden’s outgoing top medical adviser and White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha joined the historic first black lesbian immigrant to hold the position of top White House spox to discuss the administration’s ongoing efforts to convince Americans to get jabbed when pandemonium broke out, with Jean-Pierre losing her composure to shield Fauci from a reporter’s effort to get an answer about the origins of COVID.


Fauci was basking in the glow of the attention when Diana Glebova, the White House correspondent for the conservative website The Daily Caller tried to get an answer from the 81-year-old who has been the nation’s public face of the coronavirus pandemic on what he has done to investigate the origins of the virus. But Jean-Pierre flew to the rescue, shutting down Glebova whom she scolded for speaking out of turn when things got heated after another reporter stood up for her.

“You need to call people across the room. She has a valid question, she’s asked about the origin of COVID,” said Today News Africa White House correspondent Simon Ateba, defending Glebova’s valid question.

“I hear the question,” the angry Jean-Pierre snapped. “I hear your question but we’re not doing this the way you want it, this is a disrespectful…”I’m done! Simon, I’m done! I’m done with you right now,” she said as she went to another reporter.

An additional video with another angle of Jean-Pierre’s childish meltdown was posted to Twitter by Curtis Houk, managing editor of media watchdog NewsBusters.

Twitter reacted to Jean-Pierre’s refusal to allow non-softball questions for Dr. Fauci, including Ateba who tweeted, “Hello guys, today’s so-called chaos at the White House was not my fault, I just spoke up for a colleague.”

Fauci will be leaving his longtime spot as the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) where the elfin career bureaucrat has been ensconced since Ronald Reagan’s first term in the White House. But he could be made to answer the questions that he didn’t during Tuesday’s presser when the new Republican majority assumes control of the House of Representatives in January.
