What happened between him and Maxine Waters

Mrs Waters was infuriated after the congressman criticised The White House Covid advisor, Dr Anthony Fauci, for continuing to share the message of wearing a mask and social distancing – asking when Americans will get their “liberty” back.  

Fauci responded by telling Mr Jordan that the US will return to normality when enough people are vaccinated.

He said: “You’re indicating liberty and freedom. I look at it as a public health measure to prevent people from dying and going to hospital.”

However, the congressman angrily replied: ‘You don’t think Americans’ liberties have been threatened the last year, Dr. Fauci?”

“They’ve been assaulted,” he added.   

This promoted fellow congressman Maxine Waters to angrily interject: ”You need to respect the chair and shut your mouth!”

The spat occurred during a Coronavirus Crisis Subcommittee where Mr Facui was speaking alongside the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky.
