Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) war of words with White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci seems as if it has no end after he slammed Fauci over his call for kids to wear face coverings, calling him “an ignoramus”, New York Post writes.
“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.”
Paul was set off by Fauci saying that while vaccinated parents and children don’t have to wear masks at home, “when a child is outside, not vaccinated and [is] interacting with other people, either in an outdoor or in an indoor setting, 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 don’t have a rash of deaths [in kids aged] 1-10, 1-18,” 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.”
