Dr. Anthony Fauci referred to Republican Senator Roger Marshal as a "moron" while whispering and the hot mic picked it up. Fauci also called Marshal 'misinformed' to his face during the tense confrontation caught on video at a Senate Health Committee meeting.

Fauci called Marshal misinformed because Marshal was questioning his financial disclosures. However, Fauci is a public employee and his financials are already disclosed according to USA Today.

"As Fauci is a public official, his financial disclosure information is available via a Freedom of Information Act request — but Marshall said his staff was unable to find it. He pointed to Fauci's reported salary of over $400,000, making him the highest paid federal government employee."
