“I’ve never heard Dr. Fauci’s cell phone voicemail greeting, but I imagine it says: ‘Yes, I’ll come on your show.”
This is the first sentence Piers Morgan began with his new article about Anthony Fauci.
He wrote that barely a week seems to go by without him popping up on TV or in newspapers and magazines, and as time has gone on, Fauci’s become more and more brazenly political in those interviews since the Biden administration took over, adding that what he said in these new interviews should give every American serious for concern.
Margaret Brennan, an interviewer CBS’s Face The Nation asked Fauci if he thought he was being used as a scapegoat to deflect attention from President Trump’s culpability over the Capitol riots, on which he answered smirkingly with: “Of course! You have to be asleep not to figure that one out!”
“Well, there are a lot of Republican senators taking aim at this,” said Brennan.
“That’s okay, I’m just gonna do my job. I’m gonna be saving lives, and they are gonna be lying,” responded Fauci.
“It seems another level of danger to play politics around matters of life and death,” continued Brennan with the argument.
To which Fauci nodded: “Exactly. And to me, that’s unbelievably bad, because all I want to do is save people’s lives.”
When a public figure starts talking about themselves in the third person, it’s always a worrying indicator of rampant egomania, and sure enough, that’s what Fauci then did, wrote Piers Morgan in his article.
“Anybody who’s looking at this carefully realizes that there’s a distinct anti-science flavor to this. If they get up and criticize science, nobody’s going to know what they’re talking about. But if they get up and really aim their bullets at Tony Fauci — people could recognize there’s a person there, so it’s easy to criticize. But they’re really criticizing science because I represent science, and that’s dangerous,” said Fauci.
Fauci repeatedly said the public shouldn’t bother buying masks as they were ineffective: “If you look at the masks that you buy in a drug store, the leakage around that doesn’t really do much to protect you.” He also told 60 Minutes: “People should not be walking around in masks.”
Just three months later, he conceded masks do work, and admitted telling people not to wear them had been wrong but said he did it because there was a mask shortage and he was concerned there wouldn’t be enough for health workers. And since then has demanded everyone wear them, though his guidance on when and where people should wear them has changed several times.
Fauci initially opposed President Trump’s China travel ban, then later said it had saved lives.
Morgan however, refuses to be canceled and also slammed people like Megan Markle as a liar.
