Leaked Audio Reveals Former NIH Director Francis Collins Touting Vaccine Mandates, Threatening Unemployment

(FreedomBeacon.com)- Leaked audio recordings obtained by The Daily Wire prove that Francis Collins, the former head of the National Institutes of Health who was recently appointed by President Joe Biden as his new science advisor, is not politically neutral and has expressed a deep hatred of former President Donald Trump.

Collins not only expressed support for authoritarian vaccine mandates, which have stopped American citizens – and more so citizens of European states like Austria- from living their lives as normal unless they agree to take an experimental vaccine.

In the audio obtained by The Daily Wire, which was recorded at an event on October 26 last year during an event hosted by the Institute of Politics at the University of Chicago, Collins can be heard claiming that there is “no question” that mandates are legal and that people should lose their jobs if they don’t want to take it.

“The US government does have the authority to mandate vaccinations if there is an outbreak that is threatening people, because it’s not just about you, it’s about the people you’re going to infect,” he said in the clip.

Collins very clearly indicated his support for forcing people to take the jab through fear of losing their job, too. As if he was happy to do it.

“Do mandates convince people who otherwise wouldn’t get them? Oh yeah, especially if it means losing your job,” he quipped.

Imagine saying something so evil so casually.

He also claimed that “great harm” was done to the United States by a “very, very self-involved and misguided president in the previous administration.” He said this without citing evidence that the former president’s policies did anything to harm the United States, and ignored the fact that Democrat-backed lockdowns caused the most economic damage to this country in hundreds of years.

He also wrongly claimed that “hundreds of thousands of people have died who should not have had to do so,” again without backing up his ludicrous claim.

How, exactly, could President Trump have prevented even more deaths from a virus released by China?

And this is the man who President Joe Biden wants as his science advisor?
