Dr. Anthony Fauci has made a lot of questionable decisions. Now, Senator Rand Paul has decided to give him a little reminder.
According to the Washington Examiner, Paul knocked Fauci for incorrectly predicting how widespread the coronavirus pandemic would be in the U.S.
“I think we ought to have a little bit of humility in our belief that we know what’s best for the economy,” Paul stated. “And as much as I respect you, Dr. Fauci, 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’re opening up a lot of economies around the U.S., and I hope that people who are predicting doom and gloom and saying, ‘Oh, we can’t do this’ … will admit that they were wrong if there isn’t a surge because I think that’s what’s going to happen,” Paul said.
“In rural states — we never really reached any sort of pandemic levels in Kentucky and other states. We have less deaths in Kentucky than we have in an average flu season.“
Earlier that day, Fauci had warned the possibility of “needless suffering” if states choose to reopen to early.
