    Piers Morgan has had it with Dr. Anthony Fauci's insatiable need for celebrity status. In a column for The Daily Mail, Morgan pointed out Fauci's incessant media appearances and snaps, "If, as he insists, his only interest is in saving lives, then it's time Anthony Fauci put his ego away, stayed off TV and shut the f*** up."

    Morgan started his column by writing sardonically: "I've never heard Dr. Anthony Fauci's cell phone voicemail greeting, but I imagine it says: 'Yes, I'll come on your show,'" adding, "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."

    Morgan noted the partisan nature of Fauci's appearance on CBS' "Face The Nation" on Sunday in which he attacked Texas GOP senator Ted Cruz and other senators critical of himself, smirking, "That's okay. I'm just gonna do my job. I'm gonna be saving lives, and they are gonna be lying." After host Margaret Brennan said, "It seems another level of danger to play politics around matters of life and death," Fauci responded, "Exactly. And to me, that's unbelievably bad, because all I want to do is save people's lives."

    Morgan commented, "Right, and the best way to do that is to alienate half the country from listening to you by trading in political point-scoring!"

    "The more he's been attacked, the more self-righteous, zealous and preachy Fauci has grown," Morgan opined, pointing out, "The problem with Fauci saying he IS the Science is that so often in the pandemic, he's got the science plain wrong."

    Noting Fauci having claimed that the NIH "has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology" and saying at the same hearing that "there was no way to know if Chinese scientists working at the lab had lied and conducted gain of function experiments on bat coronaviruses using U.S. tax dollars," as Morgan put it. He continued, "[His] furious reaction to any suggestions he's not being entirely transparent about it raises more suspicion than it dampens."

    Morgan concluded:

    But to borrow pandemic language, his ego has been spiking to dangerous heights in this crisis, and his demands for Republican senators to be prosecuted exposed a political bias that has no place in the office he holds ... The more he talks, the less many Americans either like or believe him.

    They just see a narcissistic blow-hard who likes the sound of his own voice and constantly changes his mind. ... as we know, when it comes to facts about Covid, the good doctor's proven himself to be extremely fallible.

    And the more he contradicts himself on TV, the more he erodes public trust.

    If, as he insists, his only interest is in saving lives, then it's time Anthony Fauci put his ego away, stayed off TV and shut the f*** up.
