John Berman to Navarro: ‘Why Should We Listen To You and Not Dr. Fauci?’
BERMAN: “Hang on, Pete. I have to ask the question. I let you go to four points in the beginning. I just want to follow-up."
NAVARRO: "Yeah, sure. Sure."
BERMAN: "You’re saying a second opinion here. What are your qualifications to weigh in on medicines more than Dr. Anthony Fauci? Why should we listen to you and not Dr. Fauci?"
NAVARRO: "Let me suggest, John, that later in the day, you have William Grace on, another famous doctor in the city of New York. He has -- he can talk eloquently about this. But John, doctors disagree about things all the time. My qualifications in terms of looking at the science is that I’m a social scientist. I have a Ph.D. And I understand how to read statistical studies, whether it’s in medicine, the law, economics or whatever."
BERMAN: "I’m sorry, that doesn’t qualify you to treat patients. You know it doesn’t qualify to you treat patients."
NAVARRO: "Hang on, John, John, John, John. John, all I’m asking for you to understand, John, is that right in your city, in the New York Health and Hospital System, virtually every patient getting COVID is presenting with COVID-19 symptoms is given hydroxy. Now, you — talk to Mitch Katz, talk to William Grace, and I simply present that, and you can — I think this is important for your viewers. There are downsides to this. There can be in some cases."
NAVARRO: "Negative effects."
NAVARRO: "Yes, that’s true and it’s related to heart and related to vision, and that’s why the task force, was very clear in its decision that it had to be the patient/doctor relationship that would prescribe the drug.”
