WATCH: Fox’s Chris Wallace Takes Apart HHS Secretary Azar Over COVID Response

Alex Azar has worked as the Secretary of Health and Human Services since January of 2018. His job was made more difficult this year by the presence of a global pandemic. And Donald Trump certainly made Azar’s job even harder with his comments and behavior.

During a Sunday Fox News appearance, Azar attempted to defend the president’s record on the coronavirus. Host Chris Wallace, however, was not interested in the HHS’s Secretary’s excuses.

Wallace began the interview by discussing Joe Biden’s plan to ask Americans to wear masks for 100 days. Azar responded, “Well, Chris, I welcome Vice President Biden to the club. Since the middle of April the president’s guidelines for reopening have called [for wearing] masks.”

The Fox host responded, “First of all, it’s the president-elect, Joe Biden, Secretary Azar. Secondly, … on April 3rd the president said he wasn’t going to wear a mask. He didn’t wear a mask in public for three months until July. And just last night at that rally in Georgia, not only didn’t he wear a mask … but [of] thousands of people packed together, none I could see wearing a mask. That is a direct violation of what the CDC and you are recommending.”

Azar countered, “Chris, our advice has always been the same. Wash your hands. Watch your distance. Wear face coverings when you can’t watch your distance.”
