Paul Rips Fauci
Paul attributed the reduction in incidents of infection and death to the rollout of the vaccine.
Asked by host Neil Cavuto about coronavirus pandemic doctor Anthony Fauci, Senator Paul said, “Here is the problem with Dr Fauci. We shouldn’t have government mandates based on what we don’t know. We should make warrants based on what we know. When they can prove that something is a real problem, consider a warrant.
Paul then described a recent exchange he had with Fauci which showed that while something is not necessarily proven, Fauci is erring on the side of caution.
Senator Paul thinks that is overbreadth.
“The last time he [Dr. Fauci] looked back with me, he said, “What about the variants?” You may have had the infection or have had the vaccine, but you may be susceptible to the variants, ”Paul said.
Dr Fauci, good news! T cell immunity after natural infection has been shown to include variants. Do we still need to wear multiple masks after recovering or immunizing?https://t.co/sSsE66wJbs

Senator Paul: “ What we need to do is not to instill fear ”
He added: “All the studies so far show that the vaccine works well against most of the variants and that natural diseases work very well against the variants.
“In fact, a study published in January by one of his [Fauci’s] own institutes, one of his scientists who works for him, said that natural immunity, those who got it the natural way, the way I did, also have immunity against all variants, ”said Paul.
“What we need to do is not push fear,” Paul insisted. “Is it perfect? No.”
But Paul said, “The onus should be on the government to prove that there are people who have had it or are not getting it by the tens of thousands, or [that] vaccinated people still transmit it. “
Paul also noted, “Even the CDC admitted, before someone backed it up, but the CDC chief was on TV saying if you were vaccinated we found out you were not wearing it, that you did not transmit. “
“This is all good news,” said Paul.
March 30, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said, “Our data from the CDC today suggests that people vaccinated do not carry the virus, do not get sick, and that it is not only in clinical trials, but also in clinical trials. real world data. ”
April 2, The CDC is back this claim, with a spokesperson telling The New York Times, “It is possible that some people who are fully vaccinated could contract COVID-19. The evidence is not clear as to whether they can spread the virus to others. We continue to assess the evidence. “
I urge everyone to get vaccinated if you think you need it or want it. And then I urge everyone in America to throw off their masks, demand that their schools be open, and live their lives without more government mandates and interference. https://t.co/RV7IoWkxQm

Paul: “ These people can’t stand the good news ”
It was then that the Republican senator said he believed these officials were opposed to the “good news.”
“These people can’t take good news because it means you are taken out of their pocket and allowed to start living your life again,” Paul said.
“They don’t want you to be free from their mandates,” he added. “They like the idea of submission because most of these people, deep down, are great members of the government.”
Paul explained the good news.
“So far the good news is that we are finding long-standing T cell-mediated immunity, memory immunity, for people who have had it,” he said.
Paul continued, “There aren’t any big studies showing that we get widespread re-infection from those who have had it. It’s very, very rare. “
Without a doubt, Paul’s opinion of the mindset of health officials will be controversial.
