White House chief medical adviser Dr Anthony Fauci “is not being honest with the American public” about when to wear masks, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky said on Friday. “Tucker Carlson Tonight”.
Paul joined host Tucker Carlson a day after the senator challenged Fauci to present hard evidence that people should wear face masks even after receiving the coronavirus vaccine.
At one point, Paul referred to the double-masking as Fauci’s “theater”, which visibly annoyed the immunologist.
“Here we are again with the ‘theater’,” Fauci fumed. “Let’s get down to the facts.”
Paul told Carlson on Friday that Fauci had presented “no scientific evidence” to justify wearing masks after people were vaccinated.

“There was Dr. Fauci’s opinion, his conjecture that one day there might be a [coronavirus] variant that gets out of control of the vaccine and becomes a pandemic and hospitalizes and kills people, “he said.” But there is no evidence that this has happened. He thinks it might happen, so you have to wear the mask until he’s sure things that might happen won’t happen. “
Paul went on to describe Fauci as “reckless of freedom”, adding that the onus should be on him and other bureaucrats to prove that their dictates and recommendations are necessary.
“There are no reports or scientific studies indicating, after vaccination, that there is some kind of widespread contagion that people [who are] vaccinated spread the disease, ”he said.
“What Fauci won’t tell you is that he’s telling you a ‘noble lie.’ He’s lying because he doesn’t think we’re smart enough to make decisions, ”continued Paul. “His fear is that if we stop wearing masks, the vaccinated [people] will say “What is it, I’m not wearing a mask either.”

Paul concluded by reiterating that the burden of proof lies with the government and health officials in cases where personal freedoms are curtailed.
“I shouldn’t have to prove that I want to be free and left alone,” he said. “I want to breathe the air.”
