  • Ex-trade advisor Peter Navarro spread baseless claims about the coronavirus on Fox News on Tuesday.

  • He called Dr. Anthony Fauci the virus' "father" in response to one of Fauci's vaccine remarks.

  • He also said former President Donald Trump should get more credit for the vaccine.

  • See more stories on Insider's business page .

The former White House trade advisor Peter Navarro delivered a wild rant on Fox News in which he called Dr. Anthony Fauci the "father" of the coronavirus.

Navarro, who served in President Donald Trump's White House, was asked by the Fox News host Rachel Campos-Duffy on Tuesday night for his thoughts on Fauci's saying recently that the decision to start trying to make a coronavirus vaccine in January 2020 "may have been the best decision that I've ever made."

Navarro responded: "Fauci is a sociopath and a liar. He had nothing to do with the vaccine. The father of the vaccine is Donald J. Trump."

"What is Fauci the father of?" he continued. "Fauci is the father of the actual virus."


Peter Navarro calls COVID-19 the "Fauci Virus" calling Fauci "the father of" the virus and accusing him of allowing China and the People's Liberation Army to "genetically engineer" COVID-19. Host Rachel Campos-Duffy lets it slide.

He then repeated an unproven theory that the coronavirus came from a lab in Wuhan, China, and went on to link Fauci to the lab, claims that Campos-Duffy did not challenge on the air.


Trump has repeatedly   complained   that he isn't getting credit for administration's role in vaccine creation and distribution.

President Joe Biden's White House press secretary,   Jen Psaki, has repeatedly refused   to give Trump credit for the vaccine development and rollout that took place during his presidency, instead calling it a "Herculean incredible effort by science and by medical experts."

Trump   said earlier this month   that he had ignored advice from Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, about how to handle the pandemic.

It boggles the mind that Presidents and their supporters are fixated upon assigning credit to the POTUS and blame to the scientists.

Jonas Salk invented the Polio Vaccine in 1953.  It was approved in 1955.

Salk was a hero.

Ike was the POTUS.

Together they ( the Feds ) arranged for 5 companies to produce the vaccine.

One of those companies, Cutter,  fucked up royally; their vaccine was live virus, infecting 40,000 kids, killing 10 and maiming 200 children.

Salk was still a hero.

Ike was still the President.

Ike assumed neither the credit or the blame, just quietly made sure the vaccine was made available at no cost to every American

and eventually polio was for all intents and purposes wiped out.

note in the second article, Ike isn't even mentioned.

Now we all know that Trump cannot deal with NOT being mentioned.  He most likely would call Ike a "loser" because he failed to take credit.

Navarro is one of the few people over the past 5 years that I would call truly evil.
