It seems like Dr. Anthony Fauci has rediscovered his independence. He showed it with his methodical stinging decomposition of a squirming Rand Paul’s hubris based on fake science.
Dr. Anthony Fauci schools Rand Paul
When it was time for Senator Rand Paul to start his questioning, he sounded off the Fox News Channel narrative.
“I think we ought to have a little bit of humility in our belief that we know what’s best for the economy and as much as I respect to dr. Fauci,” an obstinate Rand Paul said. “I don’t think you’re the end-all. I don’t think you’re the one person that gets to make a decision. We can listen to your advice but there are people on the other side saying there’s not going to be a surge and that we can safely open the economy and the facts will to bear this out.”
Anthony Fauci gave a response that was striking, poetic, and belittling of the Senator in a so very classy manner.
“First of all Senator Paul,” Fauci replied assertively. “Thank you for your comments. I have never made myself out to be the end-all and only voice of this. I’m a scientist, a physician, and a public health official. I give advice according to the best scientific evidence. There are a number of other people who come into that and give advice that are more related to the things that you spoke about, about the need to get the country back open again and economically. I don’t give advice about economic things. I don’t give advice about anything other than public health. So I wanted to respond to that.”
Fauci then started twisting the rhetorical knife.
“The second thing is that you use the word we should be humble about what we don’t know and I think that falls under the fact that we don’t know everything about this virus,” Fauci said. “And we really better be very careful particularly when it comes to children because the more and more we learn we’re seeing things about what this virus can do that we didn’t see from the studies in China or in Europe. For example, right now children presenting with COVID-19, actually have a very strange inflammatory syndrome very similar to Kawasaki syndrome. I think we better be careful if we are not cavalier and thinking that children are completely immune to the debilitative effects. So again you’re right in the numbers that children, in general, do much much better than adults and the elderly and particularly those with underlying conditions but I am very careful and hopefully humble in knowing that I don’t know everything about this disease and that’s why I’m very reserved in making broad predictions.”
Whenever Dr. Anthony Fauci voices his fact-based statements independently, America feels safer and informed. We need to completely disregard the president and listen to the fact and truth tellers.

” I don’t think you’re the one person that gets to make a decision.”
With no due respect to Mr Paul (he lost the right to any honorific long ago by his own words and actions), he also does not get to make a decision in that realm. That realm is that of the executive branch of the US government, not the prostituted legislative branch.
Rand Paul seems to really not know his place!
