Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) told the Todd Starnes Show National Institute of Health (NIH) Director Dr. Anthony Fauci needs to go for lying to the American people.

Mace, along with 23 colleagues, sent a letter to Fauci on Friday following a bombshell report by the White Coat Waste Project that his department used taxpayer funds for abusive testing of dogs

She detailed one of the “horrific,” “gruesome,” tests: “to take the vocal cords out of these beagle puppies, 44 of them to then drug them, kill them and dissect them.” Then another where the canines were eaten alive by insects from the neck up.

“And for what purpose?” Mace asked. “We would never allow this in the U.S. and so our taxpayer money is going overseas…we are demanding answers and you know, obviously I’m not going to stop until I get them…Like, what is the purpose of this? There is none. It’s not helping us get through COVID for sure.

The South Carolina representative told host Todd Starnes Fauci lied about gain-of-function research, masks, and the origins of COVID.

“He needs to go, right. We need to get him out of there. And if this is what it takes, then I’m here for it,” Mace said. “I do want to know what other experiments are happening. I’ve been reading about other research where they’re trying to scare monkeys to death, frighten them to death, or they’re trying to get mice addicted to cocaine. Like what the hell is going on? Like, I don’t understand it at all.”

Starnes responded: “It’s despicable. And then it does make you wonder, ‘OK, so if they’re doing that to the animals, what are they doing to the humans?'”

Below is a rushed transcript of Rep. Nancy Mace’s interview on the Todd Starnes Show Tuesday:

STARNES: [00:42:42] I want to go, though, to the Patriot mobile newsmaker line right now. We are always honored to have our friend, Congresswoman Nancy Mace with us. Congresswoman, hope you’re doing good today. [00:42:52][9.4]

MACE: [00:42:53] Yes sir, doing great and thank you as always for having me on. [00:42:56][3.1]

STARNES: [00:42:56] And you know, before we get to this letter, I just, you know, what’s happening in Loudon County, Virginia, is it is inspiring. I think, Nancy to the entire country where you have moms and dads and students rising up. I know the government wants to call them domestic terrorists, but these are people who care about their country. They care about the education of their kids. And I’m proud of these folks. [00:43:17][21.0]

MACE: [00:43:18] It’s it’s patriotic is what it is. And as someone who is a victim of rape, I was raped when I was 16 to see the community come together to protect other victims of rape, and this happened at their school is remarkable and should make all of us proud to be American. [00:43:35][16.5]

STARNES: [00:43:36] Now, yesterday or day before yesterday you sent a letter to Dr. Fauci regarding this horrifying story about the taxpayer funded experiments on little puppies, little beagle puppies. Have you gotten a response yet from anybody? [00:43:53][17.0]

MACE: [00:43:54] Not yet. We learned about this a couple of weeks ago. I worked with White Coast White Coat Waste Project and they told me about this and I sent this letter on Friday, and it was about two dozen lawmakers signed on to my letter. Republican and Democrat alike is a bipartisan issue where we learned that there has been expended, in this particular case, one point seven million dollars to take the vocal cords out of these beagle puppies, 44 of them to then drug them, kill them and dissect them. And for what purpose, right? We would never allow this in the U.S. And so our taxpayer money is going overseas and this is what happened. And it’s horrific. It’s gruesome. And this isn’t a partisan issue in most of America. You can see over the last four days it’s all anyone is talking about. And if that’s what brings the country together to get Fauci out of out of his office, that is the role that he has today at the NIH. And then so be it. But we are demanding answers and you know, obviously I’m not going to stop until I get them. I have since learned tired of many other horrific experiments. The same article that folks read about a half a million was sent to put again beagles, allowing them to be eaten alive by insects from the neck up. Like, what is the purpose of this? There is none. It’s not helping us get through COVID for sure. [00:45:12][78.3]

STARNES: [00:45:13] It’s despicable. And again, we’re talking about the man who is the highest paid government worker in the entire country, making more than even the president of the United States. [00:45:21][8.3]

MACE: [00:45:23] And you know, he lied to us about gain of function research. He lied to us about masks. He’s lied to us about the funding that went to Wuhan lab. Now he’s saying, Hey, there’s no way that our money paid for the COVID 19 virus that was started in that lab that our money paid for. And now this and the and the beagles, I mean, I just it’s incredible. He needs to go, right. We need to get him out of there. And if this is what it takes, then I’m here for it. I do want to know what other experiments are happening. I’ve been reading about other research where they’re trying to scare monkeys to death, frighten them to death, or they’re trying to get mice addicted to cocaine. Like what the hell is going on? Like, I don’t understand it at all. [00:45:59][36.1]

STARNES: [00:46:00] It’s despicable. And then it does make you wonder, OK, so if they’re doing that to the to the animals, what are they doing to the humans? [00:46:08][8.1]

MACE: [00:46:09] I mean, right there, that is the question. That is the million dollar question rhetorical question. Right now that I see a lot of people asking questions about. This is the kind of thing this isn’t going to go away. And I’ve been working on animal rights issues for a long time and it’s something I’m going to continue working on. I don’t want to see our money going towards these kind of horrific experiments. They’re not doing any good for us as a country, and most of us are animal lovers in this country. We are, but a lot of us have dogs and other pets, and it’s really it’s sad and it’s disgusting. It’s medieval almost. [00:46:43][34.4]

STARNES: [00:46:45] No, it is. And I was just impressed with the fact that it was bipartisan. And you have yeah, I see a lot of liberals who signed, who signed on to this. So that had to be encouraging for, you know. [00:46:56][10.6]

MACE: [00:46:56] They sure did. And you know, one of the things and I’m a staunch constitutional conservative, I represent a swing district. And you know, my promise to people is, Hey, I’m not going to raise taxes, I’m not going to add to the deficit. But where we agree whether that’s five percent, 10 percent, 20 percent, then I want to work with anyone who’s willing to work with me. And this is one of those places. Same thing with the when Britney Spears testified this summer, I worked with the Democrat on the free act, right? That would allow folks in conservatorship the able to petition a judge to have their own conservator who’s not you’re not going to make money off of them, right? I mean, these are just basic human rights, basic animal rights that Republicans and Democrats can work together on. And we and we ought to do that for the American people, and I’m going to keep trying. Right. It’s very hard for us to do anything in the minority, but I’m passing bills that all of your audience would agree with. I’m doing things like this letter to Dr. Fauci, who’s sending puppies to slaughter. I’m doing them with Democrats. That’s what I promised to do. [00:47:49][53.0]

STARNES: [00:47:50] You need to start like a free Britney Free Beagles caucus or something up on. [00:47:54][4.1]

MACE: [00:47:55] Well, you can. You can get your free Britney T-shirt on my campaign website at NancyMace.org. That’s where folks can go to get one if they support that movement. But again, that is a place where the left and the right, Republican and Democrat, we all agree on that issue. And so those are the these are the kinds of things that I worked on because I want to get something done on it and I want this. You know what? Stop. [00:48:15][20.1]

STARNES: [00:48:15] I’m really hoping, you know today, Jen Psaki holding the White House press briefing. And I really do hope someone raises this issue and the letter that you wrote to Dr. Fauci. He needs to. The administration needs to be held accountable. He needs to be held accountable. They need to answer to these these charges [00:48:32][16.4]

MACE: [00:48:33] and what other experiments gruesome experiments are they? Are they hurting animals like this? I mean, there are alternatives to testing where you don’t have to do this to animals. There are plenty of alternatives out there. It’s not something we would ever do in our country. So why are we sending our money overseas to be done elsewhere? [00:48:49][16.7]

STARNES: [00:48:50] And Nancy and I think it also exposes something else, and this is a culture crisis in this country where you had you had you had thousands of senior citizens who lost their lives and nary a word in the media. But you bring up a puppy and then it becomes national news. [00:49:06][16.6]

MACE: [00:49:08] The same thing happened in Afghanistan, right? It was the left was an outrage until we left dogs behind as sort of the thinking. Although Republicans and independents rallied from the get go in Afghanistan and that horrific evacuation that it takes us coming together over animal rights and then we ought to do it, we ought to work together. And I’m proud to have folks on both sides of the aisle say in agreement, Yes, this is worth fighting for. We’re going to do it together. [00:49:30][22.3]

STARNES: [00:49:30] All right. Good stuff. Well, Nancy, God bless you and you’re doing a great job for your constituents and for the country. And we appreciate you. [00:49:38][7.3]

MACE: [00:49:38] Thank you. As always, Todd. Have a great day. [00:49:40][1.5]

STARNES: [00:49:40] All right, you too. Nancy Mace. She represents a district there in South Carolina. And look, you may not agree with everything Nancy Mace says, but that’s OK. She promised she made a promise to her voters, and she’s keeping those promises and she’s protecting the puppies. And you got all. You got to appreciate that. [00:49:59][18.4]
