DeSantis Weighs in on NIH Puppy Torture, Gain-of-Function Research Scandals


The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Anthony Fauci are under immense heat lately. News has come out that NIH and Fauci funded gruesome experiments on beagle puppies.

These experiments entailed having sandflies eat beagles’ faces alive. Before this happened, the scientists slashed the vocal cords of these beagles so they couldn’t scream in agony. This development has engendered calls for Fauci’s firing and arrest.

That’s not all, though. Earlier this month, NIH revealed in a written statement they funded gain-of-function research. This revelation conflicts with Fauci’s previous claims and congressional testimonies that NIH played no role in paying for gain-of-function research.

On Monday, Ron DeSantis, the Republican governor of Florida, spoke about these matters during a press conference.

DeSantis on the latest NIH scandals

While in North Port yesterday, the Republican leader held nothing back. DeSantis denounced the puppy torture experiments as “unimaginably cruel.”

The Florida governor furthermore stated his shock that taxpayer dollars would be employed to pay for such “despicable” experiments on animals. DeSantis later made it known Fauci needs to be held responsible for this role in all of this.

Also, during DeSantis’ time in North Port, he sounded off against the revelations of the NIH funding gain-of-function studies. DeSantis proclaimed these government bureaucrats should be shut down; he also made a point of noting they don’t have the right to run amok with taxpayer dollars and do whatever suits them.

Finally, DeSantis stated the “mad scientists” with the NIH cannot be allowed to “play God” in the aforementioned manners.

No word from the White House

DeSantis is far from the only Republican leader to speak out about these latest scandals of the NIH. Many conservatives are in the same boat; they, too, share the outrage of the Florida governor.

However, there is absolutely no word from the White House. President Biden has not condemned the NIH abusing puppies, slashing their vocal cords, and having sandflies eat them alive.

Likewise, the White House has not condemned the NIH admitting Fauci lied about them not funding gain-of-function research. Thus far, there’s no sign the Biden administration will hold Fauci accountable.
