Rand Paul Lays Into Fauci
The war of words between Sen. Rand Paul and Dr. Anthony Fauci continues as Paul recently called Fauci a “menace,” who has been wrong about almost everything he ever said about COVID, with the possible exception of the vaccines.
Paul recently told “America Reports” that Fauci has been wrong about everything on coronavirus pandemic since the beginning except for the vaccine.
Speaking on the Fox News program, the Senator from Kentucky said, “The thing is if you believe in Dr. Fauci, what you should do immediately is go get stickers and make sure they are on the floor, and a yardstick, so you know you are 6 feet away from people. And Plexiglas – carry Plexiglas around with you because Dr. Fauci thinks it somehow, you know, reflects the virus away from you. None of what he has been for has worked – not one thing he has advocated, other than the vaccine, and I’m not against the vaccine.”
Senator Paul continued, “But the interesting thing is – and he won’t admit this to the public – if you take a sample of blood from 1,000 people in the United States, and you measure to see if they had antibodies to the virus or antibodies to the vaccine, it’s over 95%. That’s why we are doing better with this. We have developed immunity either from having the disease or being vaccinated, and that’s why we are doing better, in addition to the fact that the virus has mutated to a less virulent or less deadly form. But he won’t admit it because he’s so caught up in putting stickers on your floor, putting masks on your face, putting goggles on you. The guy is a menace, and he has not been right really about anything since the start of this.”
This is not the first time that Fauci and Paul have been at odds. In fact, their relationship has been nothing short of contentious since the outset of the pandemic. Last week Paul said that he intends to introduce an amendment to remove Dr. Fauci as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases — saying no one should be “dictator in chief.”
Paul, who has made his disdain for Fauci no secret as he often sparred with him at Senate hearings over the administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, said American ”lives were held captive by petty tyrants and power-hungry bureaucrats” over the past two years.
“We’ve learned a lot over the past two years, but one lesson, in particular, is that no one person should be deemed ’dictator in chief.’ No one person should have unilateral authority to make decisions for millions of Americans,” Paul, who is a medical doctor, wrote in an op-ed for Fox News earlier this week.
