"They are disgusting and they are divorced from from reality. And we will continue to call that out and be very clear about that. Again, these are incredibly dangerous, these personal attacks that we're seeing," Jean-Pierre said.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre at a briefing on Monday addressed questions about Twitter CEO Elon Musk's critique of Biden's Covid czar Dr. Anthony Fauci. Musk took aim at Fauci over the weekend, accusing him of lying to the American people. Jean-Pierre said it was "dangerous" to criticize the federal medical official.

Fauci has been at the center of Covid policy since the beginning of 2020. He advocated for school closures, vaccine mandates and masking, for people to spend time alone on holidays, and has been the subject of an investigation by Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who has looked into what Fauci knew, and when, about gain-of-function research that he suspects may have been a contributing factor to the emergence of the Covid virus on the world stage. 

"As you know," a reporter asked Jean-Pierre, "Musk launched a series of attacks on over the weekend calling for prosecution. And then he shared some other memes about him and suggesting he lied about and is lying about the origins of the coronavirus. What's your response? First of all, specifically to the attacks on Dr. Fauci and second, how is your view of Twitter as a public forum for yourself and the president and many other officials here. 

"So we've been very clear about this. These attacks these personal attacks that we've been seeing are dangerous, on Dr. Fauci and other public health professionals as well.

"They are disgusting and they are divorced from reality. And we will continue to call that out and be very clear about that. Again, these are incredibly dangerous, these personal attacks that we're seeing," Jean-Pierre said.

Dr. Fauci has served under seven Republican and Democratic presidents, we cannot forget that. He has given, he has given his almost entire career to civil, civil service, public, or as a public servant.

"His work on infectious diseases from HIV Aids to COVID has saved countless lives. And, you know, it's unfortunate that he has, you know, we are fortunate, I should say, that he's devoted his career and his life and his exceptional talent to the American public health, to America's public health. and that's what should be discussed right now. That's what we should be thankful to him about. And again, these are incredibly dangerous and should be called out, I'll leave it there," she concluded.

Musk said "he lied to Congress and funded gain-of-function research that killed millions of people. Not awesome imo." This tweet lead to speculation that in an upcoming drop of Twitter files, a relationship between Fauci and Twitter content moderators may be explored.

This was in response to Arizona Senator Mark Kelly, who took issue with another tweet of Musk's that criticized Fauci, which simply read "My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci." This after Michael Schellenberg tweeted out an epic thread on the Twitter Files, which got into the suppression and censorship that was rampant under the platform's previous leadership.

There is currently a lawsuit making its way through the courts, brought by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, and other state's attorneys general, which alleges that Biden, Fauci, and others at the federal level "have colluded with and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content 'dis-information,’ 'misinformation,' and 'mal-information.'"
