GREG KELLY (HOST): That's the dangerous part, right? Where she's saying that Dr. Fauci gets made fun of and mocked online, that somehow that's unacceptable. It's a-OK, the American way. We're allowed to do it. Now, nobody should be threatened. And I know threatened -- you know, that should not happen. We got laws against it already. Alright, here's Fauci talking about all of the misery he went through — but he's exaggerating.


KELLY: He's loving it. Having protective services in Washington, DC - that means power. Hey, that's actually pretty good. In a country of 300 million people, in a planet of 8 billion people, he only got two credible death threats. I'm glad they caught the guys, but, dude, that's life in the fast lane. Anybody realize my dad is the former police commissioner of New York City? Ray Kelly? He had that job for 12 years. He was awesome at it. Sky high approval rating. And — but there were some nut jobs out there who wanted them dead. And I remember it too. It was like, OK, this happens. Some guy wanted to cut his head off. Yeah, he was going to pay $165,000 to another man to cut his head off. Beheading. I never heard what they were planning to do to Fauci. I don't think it had to do with removing his head. But, you know what? We didn't hide under the bed. We didn't cry to Congress or the City Council. You just, kind of, roll with certain things. You do. This is life in the public eye. Sorry, Mr. Fauci.
