During an appearance on FNC’s “Hannity” on Wednesday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) slammed National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci for downplaying the role that power judiciary can play in the application of the COVID-19 protocol.
Paul said Fauci likely disapproves of judicial or constitutional interference.
“I think, though, that Fauci’s kind of absurdity about whether the pandemic is over or not when you see him come out, and he basically said the courts shouldn’t be involved in limiting his power, what he’s basically saying is he’s against individual choice, he’s against american freedoms to choose their own medicine, to choose their treatment, so he’s a man who’s against everything that america represents,” Paul said.
“He believes his edicts should stand, that no court or Constitution should review his edicts, and no person should have a choice to do so,” he added. “But if you look at the airport, I was at the airport this week, everyone is all smiles, and at least 97% of people are not wearing a mask because they judged that they are not at risk for COVID. ”
