Elon Musk has renewed his attacks on Anthony Fauci, labelling Joe Biden’s outgoing Covid czar “creepy”.
Mr Musk was reacting to a Twitter post a few Latest York Times profile on the eve of Dr Fauci’s retirement after greater than five many years on the National Institutes of Health.
Dr Fauci revealed he kept portraits from fans on the partitions of his home office, and told the Times he was reluctant to share the private insight after being previously attacked as an “egomaniac” by the far right.
“Creepy,” Mr Musk wrote on Friday. “Perhaps he just loves taking a look at science?” he added.
It’s the newest in a series of non-public taunts the Twitter CEO has directed against the 82-year-old infectious disease expert.
This week, Mr Musk tweeted: “Latest Twitter policy is to follow the science, which necessarily includes reasoned questioning of the science”.
The post was widely interpreted to be a slur on Dr Fauci, and got here after Mr Musk had made a transphobic comment that his pronouns were “prosecute/Fauci”.
