Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Friday to address his recent attack on National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases chief Dr. Anthony Fauci.
“I don’t mean to pile on Fauci, but we are making very important decisions based on what he’s saying,” Portnoy told host Tucker Carlson, “and I think it’s OK to say ‘I really don’t know, guys’.
“But I get the feeling if you asked him this question, or ‘What does one plus one equal?’ you’re going to get seven different answers.”
Portnoy’s Friday diatribe was in response to a CNBC interview in which Fauci admitted Americans “can’t stay locked down for such a considerable period of time [or risk] irreparable damage and have unintended consequences including consequences for health.”
Portnoy took to Instagram to unleash his rage.
“He thinks we should start opening the country. What the f–k are we talking about? This is my whole point,” Portnoy said, later adding that Fauci should “pick a f******* side or at least say you don’t know.”

“Listen, Fauci may be the nicest guy in the world, but he said wear masks [then] don’t wear masks,” Portnoy told Tucker Carlson Friday. “He said the lockdown may go on indefinitely [then] we have to end the lockdown. It’s tough to put that much stake in what he’s saying when I just don’t think he knows.”
“Right now, I don’t trust what he says, I don’t know how anybody could,” he concluded. “I don’t know if it’s intentional, I just honestly think this thing moves. There [are] videos of Fauci all through this, he’s on different sides depending on the day, depending on the mood, we are making seemingly life-changing decisions for other people based on facts that are clearly not facts.”
