Rand Paul: ‘Little Dictator’ Fauci ‘acts like an ignoramus every day’ over masks

US HEADLINES:

The COVID-19 pandemic may be nearing an end, but the war of words between Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci doesn’t appear to be stopping anytime soon.

“He probably has the highest IQ for someone who actually acts like an ignoramus every day of the week,” Paul said of the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Friday in an appearance on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

What set Paul off this time was Fauci’s statement in a recent MSNBC interview that while vaccinated parents and children don’t have to wear masks in their home, “when a child is outside and is not vaccinated and [is] interacting with other people, either in an outdoor or in an indoor setting, you want to make sure the child is masked.”

“I mean, really?” Paul responded. “Kids don’t get this disease. When they do get it, it’s a mild form. They don’t transmit it well. We’ve got two years worth of evidence on this. We don’t have a rash of deaths [in kids aged] 1-10, 1-18.

“They [the CDC] still have their camp provision. They want them going around camp wearing a mask, doing the 6-foot stuff,” the senator went on. “There’s no science behind it. It’s all conjecture, it’s all Tony Fauci, his way or the highway, Mr. Little Dictator . . . If Fauci wants kids to mask up and wear masks everywhere, he should show us the science.”

Earlier this week, Paul and Fauci butted heads during a Senate committee hearing over grants by the National Institutes of Health to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the lab from which many believe the coronavirus emerged.

“The NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Institute,” Fauci said at one point after describing Paul’s claim to the contrary as “entirely and completely incorrect.”

Rand Paul's comments come as the CDC announced that regardless of the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, unvaccinated children should still wear masks.
