Many are aware that Sen. Rand Paul is not a big fan of the White House’s top doctor, Anthony Fauci. He reminded Fox News viewers on Friday night with his advice to “ignore” the so-called health expert.
Paul made his remarks during an interview on “Hannity.”
Sen. Rand Paul: "Let's not live in fear because Dr. Fauci is promulgating things that are unscientific just to scare you. If you've been vaccinated or if you've had the disease, live your life and ignore this man, and let's hope he can be gone as soon as possible." 🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/caHGuS5GdK

Not Based In Science
Paul not only has many questions and doubts regarding Fauci, but urged Americans to “ignore” him.
“Virtually none of the edicts or the promulgations that come from Fauci’s mouth are based in science at all,” Paul told host Sean Hannity.
Paul said, “Take the idea that we’re now going to test the day of travel. The rapid test is accurate about between 30 and 50% if you don’t have symptoms. So most people traveling, if they know they’re sick, are going to not travel. So, most of the people we’re talking about are traveling are without symptoms. The test is 30 to 50% accurate.”
“The Omicron variant is already across the United States and across the world,” Paul explained. “No travel ban is going to stop it, and no amount of testing is going to stop it.”

“But think about this — Fauci now says if you know someone’s been vaccinated, you don’t have to wear a mask next to him,” Paul continued. “So you see him at one of these glittering Hollywood parties the other day, and it’s like, oh, if I don’t know the person, I put a mask on, if I know them. Well, he doesn’t know their vaccine status.”
“How idiotic is that?” Paul asked.
“Oh, I don’t know that person, so I’m going to put my mask on,” Paul said, mockingly. “But now I’m going to take it off because I know that person. He doesn’t know who’s vaccinated or not by looking at them.”
“It’s a ridiculous standard,” the senator exclaimed.
The libertarian-leaning Republican said Americans need to get back to their regular routines.
“But here’s the bottom line people have been vaccinated or people who’ve gotten the disease naturally do have a semblance of protection and should feel comfortable going about their daily lives,” Paul said.
