Neil Cavuto: Ebola Czar Critics Should 'Shut Up'

By    |   Tuesday, 21 Oct 2014 07:33 PM

Fox News Channel's Neil Cavuto says Republicans who are critical of Ebola czar Ron Klain's lack of a medical background should "shut up and save it for issues that matter."

Though most of Klain's critics don't have medical backgrounds either, "that hasn't stopped a lot of you from pontificating as if you were Marcus Welby," Cavuto said.

Story continues below video.


Cavuto compared Klain to Stewart Simonson, tapped in 2004 as President George W. Bush's bird flu czar. Simonson was just as much a Republican political insider as Klain is a Democratic insider, he said.

Simonson was assistant secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, which gave him thorough knowledge of how government agencies work together, Cavuto said. That is the same credential President Barack Obama has cited for Klain.

Picking on someone who is just getting started is "unfair," Cavuto said, and is a breakdown in civility.

"How would you like to be pre-labeled just coming out the chute?" he said.
