Sen. Rand Paul did not had back when criticizing Dr. Anthony Fauci and the “advice” he has given over the past year.
Paul, also a medical doctor, said Fauci thinks of himself as “Greek philosopher” who tells “noble lies” to help the general public.
“He’s not telling you this because he’s a mean man,” said Paul during a Fox News interview. “He’s telling you this because he feels sorry for you, because you don’t understand and Americans aren’t smart enough to make informed decisions.”
Paul noted that early on, Fauci said Americans should not wear masks. “Later on, he said all masks do work,” said Paul, “but that is a lie also because really only the N95 masks work. It is a compilation of lies, but they’re all done to protect you because he doesn’t think you are smart enough to make any of these decisions on your own.”
Paul didn’t backdown from his criticisms of mandates either. “The mandates did not cause the disease but there is no evidence the mandate slowed down the disease at all,” said Paul.
