He’s furious over this.
According to the Daily Caller, Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul slammed Dr. Fauci stating that he needs to “put up or shut up.”
“You know, I think the burden should be on government, if the government is going to tell you can’t go anywhere if you’re wearing a mask, they should tell you why and present the evidence,” Paul said.
“The government needs to prove and show me a study that says that those people are still transmitting the disease and that they’re a problem to public health. What Dr. Fauci said is they might be. He sort of, well, what if they could spread the disease? Well, that sounds to me like conjecture,” Paul added. “You could look at Dr. Fauci and say what if the Spanish flu comes back? Shouldn’t we wear a mask every year for the rest of our lives because some day the Spanish flu’s gonna come back? That’s not science, it’s sort of emotionalism and fearmongering. Dr. Fauci needs to put up or shut up.” You can read the full article here.
