If Fauci Wanted to Skewer Rand Paul

    Rand Paul to Fauci:

    “You’re telling everybody to wear a mask, whether they’ve had an infection or a vaccine,” Paul said. “What I’m saying is: They have immunity, and everybody agrees they have immunity. What studies do you have that people that have had the vaccine or have had the infection are spreading the infection? If we’re not spreading the infection, isn’t it just theater? … You’ve had the vaccine, and you’re wearing two masks. Is that just theater?”

    Fauci could have said:

    "You are the expert on theater, Senator, I am a scientist. Theater won't save the lives of Americans, facts and science will."

    Rand Paul to Fauci:

    “You’ve been vaccinated and you parade around in two masks for show. You can’t get it again,” Paul said. “There’s virtually 0% chance you’re going to get it and you’re telling people that have had the vaccine who have immunity — you’re defying everything we know about immunity by telling people to wear masks who have been vaccinated.”

    Fauci responds:

    "I've been in immunology for 42 years, what I know about immunity and what you know cannot be described as what "we" know."

    Rand Paul displays his expertise, 2014 on Ebola, and Obama sending US Navy construction crews to help in Africa, Paul compares the US Navy to Carnival Cruise Lines:

     Paul said last week that he feared troops in West Africa could spread the disease into the U.S., where one patient has already been diagnosed with Ebola.

    “If you’ve ever been on a Carnival cruise line and seen a virus spread on a Carnival cruise line, imagine what it’d be like on our military ships,” Paul told conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, dismissed Paul’s concern during an interview with “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

    “I'm sorry, but that's really not a concern,” Fauci said.
