Waters told Jonathan Capehart, host of MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show” that she viewed Jordan as an attempt to bully Fauci, adding, “There was an attempt to basically shut him down by Congressman Jordan.”
“We only have five minutes each. And he doesn’t respect the chair. He doesn’t respect the other members. He speaks over time, ”said Waters, accusing Jordan of trying to undermine Fauci and Democrats.
Waters characterized her style as “different from many politicians”. In the past, she has been criticized by Republicans for rhetoric, which they considered excessive.
“I’m taking the opportunity to say what I think needs to be said at any given time,” she said. “And that’s exactly what I did.”
Jordan had accused Fauci of working to deprive Americans of their freedoms. For his part, Fauci said on Sunday that he didn’t particularly appreciate Jordan’s tone.
“I don’t like confrontations like that,” Fauci said of CNN’s State of the Union.
