A Republican senator from Kentucky told a clinician to stop requiring everybody to cover their nose and mouth, if they have already been vaccinated against the deadly disease.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) accused Anthony Fauci of unnecessarily wearing multiple face masks in public, even after the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director was administered the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus vaccine.
“You have been vaccinated and you parade around in two masks for show,” Paul said in a video shared on Rumble. “If you ask immunity they are theater … you are wearing a mask to give comfort to others–you are not wearing a mask because of any science.”
The senator, a survivor of the CCP Virus, revealed nationally there have been no recorded deaths or reinfections involving Americans who had already received both antiviral jabs.
“There is no evidence that there are significant reinfections after vaccine,” he said. “There is virtually zero percent chance you are going to get it, yet you are telling people who have had the vaccine–who have immunity–you are defying everything about immunity by telling people to wear masks who have been vaccinated.”
Paul believes the absence of reinfection cases suggests there is no need to indefinitely require every American who was vaccinated to wear a mask in public.
“You are making your policy based on conjecture–that we are going to get variants, so you want people to wear masks for another couple years,” he said. “Instead you should be saying there is no science to say we are going to have a problem from the large number of people being vaccinated.”
He also suggested the Democrat could make the national CCP Virus immunization program far more effective by giving Americans a good incentive to be vaccinated.
“Tell them they would not have to wear a mask after getting the vaccine,” he said. “Give them a reward instead of telling them that the nanny state is going to be there for three more years, and you have got to wear a mask forever. People do not want to hear it and there is no science behind it.”
However, Fauci rejected the proposal and defended his decision to keep swapping his face masks.
“I totally disagree with you,” he can be heard saying in the video. “We do not have a prevalent of the [virus] variant yet … [and] let me just state for the record that masks are not theater, masks are protective.”
