Dr. Anthony Fauci has recommended a national quarantine that could save thousands of lives, but also have a deleterious effect on the economy. During his Friday show, Tucker Carlson said that following the renowned immunologists plan would be “national suicide” for the country.

The Fox host began the segment, saying, “We’ve interviewed Dr. Fauci respectfully on this program, and we’d gladly do that again if he came back, and he will come back. He’s an impressive person. But that does not mean that he’s never wrong. On the question of this pandemic, Fauci has been wrong repeatedly.”

Carlson continued:

“More than 10 million Americans have already lost their jobs. Imagine another year of this. That would be national suicide, and yet, that is what Anthony Fauci is suggesting, at least. Now, we’re not suggesting that Fauci wants to hurt America. We don’t think he does, he seems like a very decent man. But Fauci is not an economist or for that matter someone who fears being unemployed himself. Like most of the people around him. This is not an attack, this is just an observation. Fauci has bulletproof job security. He’s not thinking that way. He has the luxury of looking at the world through the narrow lens of his profession. He doesn’t seem to think much outside that lens.”
