Donald Trump’s fervent supporter and former commerce adviser Peter Navarro slipped off the rails in a ridiculous interview with Steve Bannon, recounting how he urged one-time White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney to “strangle that [Dr. Anthony] Fauci baby in his crib.”
Navarro, who has no background in science or public well being, baselessly claimed the nation’s prime infectious illness skilled had lied repeatedly about COVID-19 and in contrast him to Adolf Hitler within the interview on Bannon’s “War Room” Wednesday.
He advised Trump’s former White House strategist that he urged Trump twice to fireside Fauci, however “I’m like … the economics guy,” and the president had “all this stuff going on,” Navarro recounted.
Meanwhile, he stated, “coward” Mulvaney and the White House press workplace had been “quivering in their knees at the thought they might take any blowback if Fauci got fired.”
Navarro stated he advised Mulvaney: “This is like Churchill with Hitler — strangle that Fauci baby in his crib.”
Navarro, former director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, was subpoenaed Thursday by the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis chaired by Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.). The committee is trying into the Trump administration’s response to the lethal COVID-19 surge final 12 months, months after Trump vowed it might rapidly vanish.
Navarro’s subpoena calls for that he appear for a deposition on Dec. 1 and hand over paperwork related to the coronavirus response by Dec. 8.
It doesn’t seem like he plans to show up:
Navarro regularly spouted lies concerning the coronavirus and the administration whereas working for Trump.
He insisted Trump’s calls for to sluggish testing so COVID-19 circumstances wouldn’t look so dangerous had been “tongue in cheek.” He has baselessly known as the pandemic a “product of the Chinese Communist Party.”
