Fauci scolds Rand Paul during tense exchange at hearing
It was beautiful, and so well deserved. Someone suggested today they Rand Paul's license (as an ophthalmologist) should be revoked, as he's clearly incompetent as a doctor.A seemingly irritated Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, scolded Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) at a congressional hearing on Wednesday after the senator claimed that COVID-19 cases might not be rising in New York because of herd immunity.
Fauci, the country's top infectious diseases doctor, told Paul he was wrong to make the suggestion, and he said Paul had also been wrong in other public comments about the concept of herd immunity.
"No, you've misconstrued that, senator, and you've done that repeatedly in the past," Fauci said.
This happens with Senator Rand all the time... If you believe 22% is herd immunity, I believe you’re alone in that.
