DeSantis calls Fauci a ‘little elf’ who should be thrown ‘across the Potomac’

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis described retiring Dr. Anthony Fauci as an “elf” and called for him to be thrown “across the Potomac River” in a speech Wednesday afternoon.

Fauci, 81, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical adviser to the past seven presidents, announced Monday that he will retire at the end of the year.

DeSantis, speaking at a GOP “Keep Florida Free” rally in Seminole County, mocked Fauci is 5’7″ – two inches shorter than his own – and called for him to be physically thrown from the US capital in Maryland, WFLA News reported.

“I’m sick of watching it. I know he says he’s going to retire. Somebody needs to grab that little elf and throw him across the Potomac,” DeSantis told the cheering crowd after discussing Fauci’s “bad” treatment of children during the coronavirus pandemic.
