Candace Owens says Fauci 'should be locked up in federal prison' after calling him and Bill Gates 'pure evil'

CANDACE Owens said that Dr Anthony Fauci should be locked up in "federal prison" after calling him and Bill Gates "pure evil."

The conservative commentator took her latest jab at Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, on Monday night.

"Dr. Fauci should be in federal prison," Owens tweeted, though it's unclear exactly what Fauci did this week to warrant the tweet.

Owens is a frequent critique of Fauci and of Joe Biden's administration's handling of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Last year, shortly after the Pfizer and Moderna Covid vaccines were approved in December, Owens declared that she would not go anywhere near a vaccine, and slammed Fauci, Bill Gates, and the pharmaceutical industry as a whole.

"Dr. Fauci is evil. Bill Gates is evil. The pharmaceutical industry is wrought with corruption and pure evil," she tweeted on December 15.

It's unclear what Fauci did to draw Owens' ire on Monday, though it could have had something to do with his latest commentary on mask-wearing and when the US can expect to return to normal life.

On Sunday, Fauci told ABC's This Week that he expects to see mask mandates relaxed "as more people get vaccinated."

"The CDC will be, almost in real-time, updating their recommendations and their guidelines," Fauci said of recommendations regarding masking.

"But, yes, we do need to start being more liberal as we get more people vaccinated."

Fauci also told ABC's George Stephanopoulos during his Mother's Day appearance that he hopes the virus situation will be drastically different by next Mother's Day.

"I hope that next Mother's Day, we're going to see a dramatic difference than what we're seeing right now,” he said.

"I believe that we will be about as close to back to normal as we can, and there's some conditions to that, George.

"We've got to make sure that we get the overwhelming proportion of the population vaccinated. When that happens, the virus doesn't really have any place to go."

Currently, nearly 35 percent of the adult US population has been fully vaccinated against Covid, and about 46 percent of the population has received at least one dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.

Owens is, apparently, not one of those people.
