Fox News host Will Cain called for the firing of Dr. Anthony Fauci during Fox & Friends on Monday. Cain wasted little time taking aim at the administration of President Joe Biden for its handling of COVID-19.

“The Biden Administration, from President Biden to Dr. Anthony Fauci, have handled the Coronavirus pandemic about as poorly as you could possibly handle it,” Cain said. “And someone needs to pay with their job. My suggestion would be you start with Dr. Anthony Fauci.”


Carley Shimkus, a co-host, talked about the vaccine mandate taking effect in New York City and noted Fauci’s words that he believes people on flights will be masked up “forever” while signaling support for vaccine mandates in order to fly domestic.

“This is a massive overreach and it starts small with things that seemingly make sense like 15 days to slow the spread,” Shimkus said. “You have to mask up during the height of the pandemic and now children are being forced to get vaccinated.”

Lawrence Jones noted much of the administration’s policies “defy the science.”

“Dr. Fauci told on himself,” Jones said. “He said the reason why he wants this to continue on the airlines is because it’s going to squeeze people to get the vaccination. That’s the real objective is control, not science.”

Cain reiterated his call for Fauci’s firing.

“He is simply out of control,” he said. “He is power drunk. And I would ask any journalist who has access to Dr. Anthony Fauci, find the limits of his own power. Ask him. Ask him the limit of his own power. See if you can find the point that which he would go, ‘No, that’s too much. We would never do that.’ I would guarantee you you could push the limit as far as you can find it and his answer will be, ‘we’ll have to see what the data says at the moment.’

“We’re not governed by data. Data, which by the way, doesn’t support his power-drunk perspective. Data that shows Omicron is overwhelmingly mild. But his power is limited by the foundational documents of this country. He is not empowered to tell us to get vaccinated to fly. He thinks so. And I would challenge you, find the limits.”
