Jean-Pierre Not Happy After Reporter Asks About COVID Origin: ‘Stop Being Disrespectful!’

During Dr. Anthony Fauci’s final press briefing Daily Caller reporter Diana Glebova asked the doctor about the origins of the COVID-19 virus. This signaled Press Secretary Katrine Jean-Pierre to step in and cut the reporter off without an answer as she moved the room to take another question.

Today News Africa’s Simon Ateba was understandably upset noting that the Press Sec was handling reporters unfairly and only calling on some while ignoring Glebova’s legitimate question.

The exchange exploded and ended with KJB snapping saying, “Simon, I’m done. Simon I’m done with you”.

Now, we’re not talking about requirements or mandating.  We’re talking about if you’re in a situation and each individual person evaluates their own risk and that of the risk of their family members, for example, like a person who is a 25-year-old living alone versus someone who has a elderly parent or grandparent or someone who is immune compromised.

First of all, everybody should be vaccinated and boosted with flu and with COVID.

Whether or not you wear a mask — or another thing we shouldn’t underestimate is testing.  So, when we’re gathering at a family gathering for Thanksgiving or for Christmas or for any other holiday as we get into the winter, it makes sense that you might want to get a test that day before you come into a place in which you might be infected and spread it or other people who might be there in order to protect.

So, there is — masking is important.  But you can count masking, vaccine, boosting, testing — all of that is part of the spectrum of protecting yourself and your family.

Q    So what do you say about the word “mask” now being a pejorative in some communities?

DR. FAUCI:  No, it shouldn’t be.  I mean, you’re absolutely right.  I mean, I know sometimes when you walk in and you have a mask and nobody has a mask, you kind of feel guilty.  You shouldn’t feel guilty.  You look terrific, right?  (Laughter.)

Q    I do.  I have no problem in here wearing a mask.  Thank you.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  All right.  We’ve got to move on.

Q    Dr. Fauci, what did you personally do to investigate the origins of COVID?

MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  Go ahead Alex.  Go ahead, Alex.

We have a process here.  I’m not calling out on people who yell.  And you’re being —

Q    You call on the same people every single time.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  You’re being — you’re being disrespectful to your colleagues, and you’re being disrespectful to our guests.  I will not call on you if you yell.

And also, you’re taking time off the clock because Dr. Fauci has to leave in a couple of minutes.

Q    I think that’s (inaudible).

Q    You’re being disrespectful.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  I’m done.  I’m not going — I’m not getting into a back-and-forth with you.

Go ahead, Jeremy.

Q    Could we get an answer to the question?

Q    Thanks.  Dr. Fauci —

Q    But she’s asking — she’s asking a great question.

Q    It is a valid question.

Q    Stop being disrespectful.

Q    No, she’s asking a valid question.  If you’re ask your question — you should allow her to ask her question.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  Go ahead, Jeremy.

Q    Dr. Fauci —

Q    She’s asking a valid question, Dr. Fauci, on the origin of COVID-19.  And people —

MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  It is not — it is not your turn.

Q    No, because —

Q    Stop being disrespectful!

Q    You call on the same people.  That’s the thing.

Q    Many people have this question.

Q    You complete the press briefing, you need to call from people across the room.  She has a valid question.  She’s asking about the origin of COVID-19.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  I hear the question.

Q    And Dr. Fauci is the best person to answer that question.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  I hear your question, but we’re not doing this the way you want it.  This is a disrespectful —

Q    It’s not about me.


Q    It’s about calling from people across the room —

MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  I’m done.  Simon, I’m done.

Q    — not just the same people.

MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  Simon, I’m done.  I’m done with you right now.

Go ahead.  Go ahead.

Q    (Inaudible) asked a valid question.  (Inaudible).

Q    So, only —

MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  Go ahead.  You’re taking time away from your colleagues.
