Former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan is going after Dr. Anthony Fauci and he is not holding back.

In a lengthy op-ed for the Daily Mail, Morgan said that Fauci needs to “put his ego away” and “shut the f*** up.”

After detailing instances where Fauci flip-flopped on issues or got certain things incorrect, Morgan noted Fauci’s latest brush with partisanship during his interview on CBS, where he referred to himself as science’s lone representative.

“For someone whose day job is supposed to be leading America’s scientific and medical war against Covid-19, he seems to have an incredible amount of spare time for self-promotional media interviews. As time has gone on, Fauci’s become more and more brazenly political in those interviews,” Morgan wrote.

“What he said in these new interviews should give every American serious [cause] for concern, not just about the latest COVID threat but about some of the outrageously partisan statements the country’s top doctor made,” Morgan continued.

Morgan argued that Fauci’s words resemble that of a “religious leader berating non-believers than a scientist trying to grapple with a pandemic. The parallel is apt because the more he’s been attacked, the more self-righteous, zealous, and preachy Fauci has grown.”

“Now aged 80, and said to be ‘exhausted’ after working every day for the past 20 months, he’s showing signs of a stubborn, irascible resistance to any challenge to his, often contradictory, pronouncements that are now doing more harm than good,” Morgan wrote.

“The problem with Fauci saying he IS the Science is that so often in the pandemic, he’s got the science plain wrong. In January 2020, when Covid first erupted in China, Fauci declared the virus was ‘not a major threat for the people of the United States and this is not something the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about,” he added.

“Fauci then said Covid was less concerning than the flu, which again was proven to be total nonsense. In subsequent weeks, Fauci repeatedly said the public shouldn’t bother buying masks as they were ineffective,” he added.

Morgan then really detailed how much Fauci has done wrong:

In January 2020, when Covid first erupted in China, Fauci declared the virus was ‘not a major threat for the people of the United States and this is not something the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about.’

Fauci then said Covid was less concerning than the flu, which again was proven to be total nonsense.

In subsequent weeks, 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,’ he said, ‘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.’

Three months later, he conceded masks do work, and since then has demanded everyone wear them, though his guidance on when and where people should wear them has changed more often than a chameleon having an acid trip.

Fauci initially opposed President Trump’s China travel ban, then later said it had saved lives.

He’s also long dismissed the theory that Covid could have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, insisting it had natural origins. Yet now many top scientists believe the lab leak theory is far more likely.

More damagingly for Fauci, it transpired that the Wuhan lab received $600,000 in funding from the NIAID (National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is part of the National Institutes of Health and run by Fauci) and emails were revealed showing he was informed early into the pandemic that experts were suspicious of the ‘natural origin’ theory.

Morgan rounded out his piece: “With his arrogant partisan performances this weekend, Fauci’s laid bare the inherent weakness of his obsession with going on TV. The more he talks, the less many Americans either like or believe him.”
