Donald Trump may be gone from the White House. But the anti-Trumpian hoaxes keep coming.
A month ago, Dr. Michelle Fiscus was the top COVID-19 vaccine official for the Tennessee Health Department. Fiscus, a pediatrician, drew the ire of Republican lawmakers who complained about her advocacy of jabbing teenagers.
According to NBC News, they were bothered by Fiscus citing a 1987 state Supreme Court decision that said teenagers could receive medical treatment without parental consent, if they were deemed mature enough to accept it.
Fiscus was fired shortly afterward.
And she subsequently made the liberal media rounds, on MSNBC and CNN. One thing she mentioned was having received a dog muzzle in the mail, which Fiscus and her husband asserted was both a “threat,” and a sign for her to stop talking about injecting children. The Tennesseean even featured a photo of Fiscus holding the muzzle and wearing a defiant look.
The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security investigated. NBC News reported the outcome on Monday.
The muzzle “was bought on an Amazon account and with an American Express card in her name,” the network noted. “There is no evidence to indicate the dog muzzle was intended to threaten Dr. Fiscus,” state Special Agent Mario Vigil wrote in the document.
Fiscus, as liberals often do when cornered, claimed her account was somehow hacked.
She told the local media that the card was hers. But on Twitter, she denied any involvement.
“The state’s investigation did NOT conclude I sent the muzzle,” she said. “In fact, it only concluded my credit card was charged with the incorrect billing address – my state work office – to an Amazon account I didn’t know existed.”
“That account was apparently accessed from the State of Washington, where I had never been, by a cell phone using a carrier I have never used,” she added in another tweet.
The report tended to disagree, NBC News noted.
Tennessee authorities contacted Amazon and were told that a company review of the order showed “the receiver (Dr. Fiscus) was also the sender,” although Amazon said it could not be certain, their report noted.
Agents obtained a subpoena to gather more details about the order, and learned that “the account which the muzzle had been purchased on was in Dr. Fiscus’ name and had been opened in March 2021,” NBC News reported.
