On Monday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) slammed Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, for reports that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) under Fauci funded torturous experiments on otherwise healthy puppies.
“A report from the White Coat Waste Project that was based off a Freedom of Information Act request with the National Institutes of Allergy & Infectious Disease found that more than $400,000 in taxpayer money was spent on canine experiments during which beagles were infected with parasites via biting flies,” Fox News reported. “The Project reported that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s bureaucracy’s budget in 2021 is an estimated $6 billion and that documents obtained through FOIA show evidence of a study in which otherwise healthy beagles were treated with an experimental medication before being introduced to biting flies that were carrying a parasite known to be contagious to humans.”
DeSantis made the comments after discussing recent news that suggested Fauci lied about whether gain of function research on bat coronaviruses being conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
NIH not only funded dangerous gain-of-function research in Wuhan, but it also funded cruel experiments on puppies.

“And then come to find out, what else is Fauci and NIH doing?” DeSantis said. “They’re doing cruel experiments on puppies. What they were doing with those puppies, is flat-out disgusting. It’s despicable, that needs to stop. I cannot believe American tax dollars would go to treat those dogs the way those dogs are be[ing] treated. And, you know, I really think Fauci needs to be held accountable.”
“These people, these bureaucrats, they don’t get to just run wild and do whatever the hell they want to with our tax dollars,” DeSantis added. “And so from funding gain of function research, to treating these puppies with really unimaginable cruelty, I think that whole lot of them need to be cleaned out and we need to be standing up for the American taxpayer and doing things ethically and not doing things like gain of function research and certainly not abusing puppies.”
DeSantis later posted the video of his comments on Twitter with the caption, “NIH not only funded dangerous gain-of-function research in Wuhan, but it also funded cruel experiments on puppies. Where is the accountability?”

Fauci and wife’s net worth ‘skyrocketed’ to $12.6 million at the end of 2021
No wonder Dr. Anthony Fauci was in no rush for the global COVID-19 pandemic to come to an end; it was making him a very wealthy man. According to a report from the non-profit OpenTheBooks, a government spending watchdog group, Fauci and his wife’s networth grew by $5 million during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The combined wealth of the 81-year-old retiring director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and his bioethicist wife, Christine Grady, soared from $7.5 million in 2019 to $12.6 million at the end of 2021.”
“Despite becoming a figure of controversy, the system has rewarded Dr. Fauci handsomely,” the group’s CEO, Adam Andrzejewski, told Fox News Digital. “While Dr. Fauci has been a government bureaucrat for more than 55 years, his household net worth skyrocketed during the pandemic.”
Specific chunks of money came in part to “major salary increases, cash awards and royalties, according to the report.”
“Fauci’s soaring net worth was based on career-end salary spiking, lucrative cash prizes awarded by non-profit organizations around the world and an ever-larger investment portfolio,” Andrzejewski said.
“He is the top-paid federal employee, his first-year golden parachute retirement pension is the largest in federal history, and he’s accepting $1 million prizes from foreign non-profits,” he added.
The New York Post reports:
Last year, Fauci raked in lucrative awards from nonprofits, including $1 million from the Dan David Foundation for “speaking truth to power” and “defending science” during the Trump Administration.
He kept $910,400 of that award, while roughly 10% went to scholarship winners, according to OpenTheBooks report.
His total compensation was $456,028 last year, up from the $434,312 he earned in 2020.
Overall, the couple’s investments also increased by more than $900,000 in 2021 while their portfolios — which included trust, retirement and college education accounts — jumped $800,000 in 2020, according to the analysis.
At the end of last year, Fauci’s account totaled $10.2 million and Grady’s had reached $2.4 million in investments.
