Twitter Owner Elon Musk tweeted a cryptic remark related to Dr. Anthony Fauci this Sunday, shortly after announcing things are about to get “spicy” over on his Twitter.

“Now things get spicy,” Musk tweeted on Saturday, serving as a forerunner to his “spicy” attack on the Biden health advisor.  

“My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci,” Musk tweeted, before adding “Truth resonates …” within the same tweet thread.

After receiving both praise and backlash for his tweet, Musk replied, “The Branch Covidians are upset lol”


Musk has trolled Fauci and the Biden Administration before on this issue. Indeed, late last week, Musk tweeted a comical “Lord of the Rings” themed meme directed at Biden and his health advisor.

Fortunately for Musk, a wide range of Republicans have announced their support for doing just that — investigating Dr. Anthony Fauci.

“We also want to get to the bottom of the origination of Covid-19. We believe that Dr. Fauci and Dr. Collins took steps to hinder investigations early on. We don’t think they’ve been honest with how they’ve spent a lot of tax dollars, especially when they went to the Wuhan lab,” ranking House Oversight member James Comer (R-KY) announced in November.

Rep Jim Jordan threw his support behind investigations into Dr. Fauci all the way back in February:


“There are three critically important [investigations] … All the lies from the misinformation, and disinformation from Fauci and the CDC. That’s because they knew from the get-go this thing [COVID-19] came from a lab, likely came from a lab, gain of function likely done, and our tax dollars being used.”

Indeed, in direct reply to Musk, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) tweeted, “Fauci’s resignation should not prevent a full-throated investigation into the origins of the pandemic. He must be required to testify under oath regarding any discussions he participated in concerning the Wuhan lab leak. His policies destroyed lives.”

If Republicans take action here, we could be in for a very good year in 2023. Americans deserve to have their questions answered. If Fauci is truly interested in public health and public trust, he should be more than happy to cooperate with Republican-led investigations.
