'Sure, I Lied. Trust Me!' --Fauci

In a Lying Liars contest, Birx came in 7th of 3 contestants.  But  Brian Hagedorn is now a distant second to Fraudci:

...Early into the pandemic, Fauci repeatedly claimed '60-70%' herd immunity was required to achieve herd immunity. Beginning around a month ago, however, Fauci's estimate drifted higher - to "70, 75 percent," and more recently telling CNBC "75, 80, 85 percent" and "75 to 80-plus percent."...

..."When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent," he said, adding "Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85."

"We need to have some humility here," Fauci then said. "We really don’t know what the real number is. I think the real range is somewhere between 70 to 90 percent. But, I’m not going to say 90 percent," because doing so might discourage Americans....

Fauci is the current leader in the Hagedorn Prize for Lying contest, 2020 edition.
