The White House has labeled Elon Musk “dangerous” after he mocked Anthony Fauci for his role in the government’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. On Sunday, Musk simply tweeted, “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci,” and the woke left lost their minds.

Former astronaut and retired US Navy Captain Scott Kelly snapped back at Musk, accusing him of promoting hatred toward the “already marginalized and at-risk-of-violence members of the LGTBQ+ community.” He added, “They are real people with real feelings.” The former Navy Captain then defended Fauci by claiming that he acted as a “dedicated public servant whose sole motivation was saving lives.”
The new Twitter CEO defended himself against Kelly’s accusations, saying, “I strongly disagree. Forcing your pronouns upon others when they didn’t ask, and implicitly ostracizing those who don’t, is neither good nor kind to anyone.”
“As for Fauci, he lied to Congress and funded gain-of-function research that killed millions of people. Not awesome [in my opinion],” added Musk.

On Monday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked about Musk’s recent comments about Fauci during a press briefing. Jean-Pierre stated that the Biden Administration believes that these “personal attacks” are “incredibly dangerous.”
Jean-Pierre added, “[Musk’s tweets] are disgusting, and they are divorced from reality, and we will continue to be very clear about that.”
The press secretary then proceeded to heap praise on Fauci for his devotion to “America’s public health,” drawing attention away from Fauci’s even greater devotion to lining his own pockets.
“That’s what should be discussed right now, that’s what we should be thankful to him about,” Jean-Pierre concluded.

The Left, who mercilessly attacks anyone for the smallest semblance of dissent from their agreed-upon message, certainly has an interesting definition of “dangerous.”
Now, something as simple as a tweet that pushes against the liberal agenda is instantly labeled an “attack” that poses ‘incredible danger.’ Of course, when the Left lied all over the media about President Trump and personally attacked him from all angles, no one batted an eye. While Trump was in office, Jean-Pierre likely didn’t lose much sleep over the “dangerous” attempts by liberal media to undermine Trump.
