Jean-Pierre says Elon Musk calling for prosecution of Dr. Fauci is 'disgusting' and 'incredibly dangerous'

The White House heavily criticized billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk after he tweeted a message that appeared to call for the prosecution of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the leading health expert who guided the U.S. pandemic response.

Musk tweeted about Fauci from his official Twitter account on Sunday.

"My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci," he wrote, garnering more than a million "likes" of support from Twitter users.

On Monday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked about the attacks on Fauci from users on social media.

“They are disgusting, and they are divorced from reality, and we will continue to call that out and be very clear about that,” Jean-Pierre responded.

“We are fortunate that he has devoted his career and his life and his exceptional talent to America’s public health, and that’s what should be discussed right now,” she explained. “That’s what we should be thankful to him about, and, again, these are incredibly dangerous and should be called out.”

Others on the left chimed in with horror and anger at Musk's tweet.

"I’m a big fan of Dr. Fauci and how he’s calmly guided our country through crisis," replied Democrat Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota.

"Re Musk tweet? Courting vaccine-deniers doesn’t seem like a smart business strategy, but the issue is this: could you just leave a good man alone in your seemingly endless quest for attention?" she added.

Others who were critical of Fauci supported the message of the tweet.

"Fauci’s resignation should not prevent a full-throated investigation into the origins of the pandemic," replied Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky. He must be required to testify under oath regarding any discussions he participated in concerning the Wuhan lab leak. His policies destroyed lives."
