Fox News accuses Dr. Fauci of working for Biden

It's completely baseless.

Primetime Fox News host Laura Ingraham has found a new conspiracy theory to float in the effort to discredit coronavirus expert Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Ingraham claimed Tuesday night that Fauci is working on behalf of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The host failed to provide evidence backing her monologue, which suggested the two are somehow working in tandem to help the former vice president’s 2020 campaign.

“Dr. Doom [referring to Fauci] himself at a Senate hearing today spreading more COVID panic and undermining Trump’s agenda,” Ingraham began.

The show then posted a graphic stating: “Biden-Fauci 2020.”

The Fox host continued by asking her audience why they don’t consider Fauci and Biden to be working together on the campaign trail.

“Now, at this point, can we all just admit that Fauci is basically working for the Biden campaign?” Ingraham asked. “For all we know, I don’t know, he could be Joe’s running mate. Why not?”

The Fox News host has been an outspoken critic of Fauci, frequently attacking the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director anytime he is not in lockstep with President Donald Trump.

But Ingraham is not the only one.

Just yesterday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) went after Fauci, taking issue with the fact that Fauci has dedicated his life to the study of infectious diseases.
