‘Shut your mouth’: Maxine Waters rails against Jim Jordan during tense hearing with Dr. Fauci

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) lost her temper Thursday as Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) pressed her beloved Dr. Anthony Fauci on when Americans can expect coronavirus restrictions to end — and it was all caught on tape.

According to Fox News, Jordan had gone past his allotted time at a House subcommittee hearing in an attempt to get a timeline from Fauci, who was characteristically slippery and even testy at moments. The infectious disease expert said that the current infection level is “unacceptably high” but would not get more specific.

Eventually, Waters snapped at Jordan: “You need to respect the chair and shut your mouth!”

Fauci, Jordan have at it

Jordan had noted that “15 days to slow the spread” had turned into a “year of lost liberty,” echoing the frustration shared by many Americans with Fauci and his advocacy of seemingly endless, and often arbitrary, restrictions amid COVID-19. “When is the time?” the congressman asked. “When do Americans get their freedom back?”

“When we get the level of infection in this country low enough that it is not a really high threat,” Fauci said, wearing a mask with beakers and flasks on it. (Get it? Science!) “That is when,” the doctor added.

At one point, Fauci said, “I don’t look at this as a liberty thing,” prompting Jordan to quip, “Well, that’s obvious.”

“You’re ranting again,” Fauci said at another moment, according to Fox. “No, I’m not ranting,” Jordan said. “Yes, you are,” Fauci said.

Waters swoons: “Fauci, I love you”

Fauci at times seemed to crouch behind bureaucratic authority, accusing Jordan of “making this a personal thing” when, Fauci claimed, he was simply following Centers for Disease Control guidelines. But Fauci is seen by an authority by countless Americans, and he has not hesitated to weigh in on all manner of topics with shifting and contradictory advice, as Jordan noted.

“You’ve given us your advice on baseball, on dating apps, on cruise ships,” Jordan fumed. “You’ve told us zero masks, one masks, two masks, now back to one mask. I’m just asking you: When is it going to end?”

Last year, Jordan called Fauci out for failing to condemn massive anti-police protests even as he criticized other, smaller gatherings. The doctor’s continued grip on the nation recently prompted Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) to dub him a “petty tyrant” who is engaging in “theater” by wearing a mask despite getting the vaccine shot.

But not everyone is so skeptical. Channeling the ingratiating deference shown to Fauci by the media for over a year now, Waters made her own fondness very clear. “Dr. Fauci, I love you,” she said, according to Fox.

  1. waters lives in a multi million$$$$ in Calif… Not even in the district she supposedly repressents.. ..Moved millions of taxpayer $$$$$$$to bank her husband used as a his piggy bank… She does not represent her voters.. just uses them.

      1. This should show that Maxine Waters is dangerous, she is there and inciting riots. She already caused two national guards to be injured, one shot. What does it take for the government to finally do something about her. Don’t say she didn’t know or start this, every american knows it is not the first time she has started trouble, the last time she had a microphone, telling people to confront Trumps voters, get in their faces, cause a scene. This time the old woman went way to far, it’s time to be rid of her, no excuses

  4. Mad Max is as butt ugly as she is stupid! I’ve never heard anything come out of her big mouth that makes any sense. How could any body be dumb enough to vote for this idiot.

  5. If I would have had a kid that looked like her I would have had an abortion. That is one ugliest racist women on the planet. Vote that old hag out alonhg with the rest of the democrats and rhinos. Couldn’t she have gotten a face lift. Or did she already.

  6. Waters should have been out of office when she told people to make a mob and tell Republicans that they aren’t welcomed in any public place. She started mobs of people taking over streets, going in to restaurants and taking people’s food, making them leave their tables and food behind. She started a bunch of problems for honest everyday people and that should have gotten her out of office. If she had been a Republican, they would have kicked her out of office before first light after saying that! She is a trouble maker, a thief…making her daughter and husband rich off of people’s tax paying money & a loud mouth that never takes responsibility for what she’s done.

    1. Amen to all that!!!!!! (Saw an interview on Laura Ingraham, with some guy from Maxine Waters district, who was running against her. Not sure of that outcome, but she did not live in her district, however, he did & he definitely had some things to say, that should have/will (whichever) win that election and “boot” her out. God help us!!!!!!! (And him —- don’t remember his name.)

  7. Wearing face mask could make sense, yet it became tool of people control. Of course many made millions of dollars selling them. Similar panic and pressure was created to get vaccinated, and Fauci became the guru to naive and uneducated.
    For me my best protection comes from above, as well as daily joy of The Lord where from comes my healing and strength. Happy Easter to all Elected to join eternal life! We know that deprived, liars, adulterers cannot enter kingdom of God unless they repent!.Do not worry and keep in your mind our salvation, that is if real value, not as dung if dirty politics!

  8. Maxine Waters is a totally worthless human being. The only people dumber than she is are the ignorant un-educated morons that voted for her.

  9. I don’t understand how she still in her job. We all the things that she has done. She was the one who started to going again the Trump people. Telling them the things that they need to do. We’re Mrs Pelosi. But they put Mrs Green Out of duties in Congress.

  10. Waters should be awarded the dubious distinction of being the stupidest, lowest intelligence member of Congress! Who says America isn’t great when a complete idiot is elected to Congress?

  11. Most of these comments indicate that there is a “court of justice” somewhere that intercedes on behalf of righteousness. Not gonna happen. You’re thinking democrats are going to give up an inch of power? Nope, never. Maxine is as safe now as she was 30 years ago (maybe safer).

  12. will post it again Maxine Waters is a cancerous evil tyrant and will be held accountable this life or the next she did did did incite violence with her comments an idiot could see that however Republicans shame on you coward list spineless bad have all Destiny to ask for donations when you can’t even stand up and fight for the American people God Bless America make America great again
