Laura Ingraham Spews Yet Another Wild Conspiracy Theory About Anthony Fauci

The Fox News personality called the nation's top infectious disease expert “Dr. Doom" and criticized him for "undermining Trump’s agenda."

Fox News personality Laura Ingraham has cooked up yet another wild conspiracy theory involving Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert.

The host of “The Ingraham Angle” described Fauci last month as “the medical deep state.” On Tuesday, she railed against Fauci’s dire warning to a Senate committee that the United States could soon see up to 100,000 new daily coronavirus infections.

Ingraham suggested, without offering any evidence to back up her claim, that Fauci is working for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

“Dr. Doom himself at a Senate hearing today spreading more COVID panic and undermining Trump’s agenda,” said Ingraham, who often uses her widely watched show to defend President Donald Trump.

A mock “Biden Fauci 2020” graphic appeared on the screen.

“Now, at this point, can we all just admit that Fauci is basically working for the Biden campaign?” Ingraham asked, stifling a chuckle. “For all we know, I don’t know, he could be Joe’s running mate. Why not?” Ingraham did not make it clear if she was joking.

“I guess he doesn’t fit the bill,” she added, likely in reference to Biden’s stated plan to pick a woman to run with him.
