DeSantis Blasts Fauci Over Alleged ‘Cruel Experiments On Puppies’: He ‘Needs To Be Held Accountable’

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) slammed Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, during remarks on Monday over alleged experiments that were conducted on puppies.

Fox News reported:

A report from the White Coat Waste Project that was based off a Freedom of Information Act request with the National Institutes of Allergy & Infectious Disease found that more than $400,000 in taxpayer money was spent on canine experiments during which beagles were infected with parasites via biting flies.

DeSantis made the remarks while also talking about the latest revelations on gain of function research that was being conducted in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“And then come to find out, what else is Fauci and NIH doing?” DeSantis said. “They’re doing cruel experiments on puppies. What they were doing with those puppies, is flat-out disgusting. It’s despicable, that needs to stop. I cannot believe American tax dollars would go to treat those dogs the way those dogs are be[ing] treated. And, you know, I really think Fauci needs to be held accountable.”

“These people, these bureaucrats, they don’t get to just run wild and do whatever the hell they want to with our tax dollars,” DeSantis continued. “And so from funding gain of function research, to treating these puppies with really unimaginable cruelty, I think that whole lot of them need to be cleaned out and we need to be standing up for the American taxpayer and doing things ethically and not doing things like gain of function research and certainly not abusing puppies.”

DeSantis tweeted out the video clip, adding, “NIH not only funded dangerous gain-of-function research in Wuhan, but it also funded cruel experiments on puppies. Where is the accountability?”

TRANSCRIPT:

RON DESANTIS, GOVERNOR OF FLORIDA (R): We know, NIH gave money to fund research, gain of function research, at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. So, what they’re doing is they’re taking U.S. tax dollars in China, and they’re trying to create super viruses that will be more dangerous for humans. And they’ll say, ‘well, we want to figure out how to combat the viruses.’ But you’re doing this, this is very hazardous. I think it’s unethical to do it. They should have been banned from doing it, but I think they went around the ban. And so we’ve got to shut that down. You can’t have mad scientist running around playing God like this. And then come to find out, what else is Fauci and NIH doing? They’re doing cruel experiments on puppies. What they were doing with those puppies, is flat out disgusting. It’s despicable, that needs to stop. I cannot believe American tax dollars would go to treat those dogs the way those dogs are be[ing] treated. And, you know, I really think Fauci needs to be held accountable. These people, these bureaucrats, they don’t get to just run wild and do whatever the hell they want to with our tax dollars. And so from funding gain of function research, to treating these puppies with really unimaginable cruelty, I think that whole lot of them need to be cleaned out and we need to be standing up for the American taxpayer and doing things ethically and not doing things like gain of function research and certainly not abusing puppies.
