Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) chided Dr. Anthony Fauci in a tweet calling for him to apologize to parents and students for warning that Covid poses a danger to them if they go back to school.
“Dr Fauci owes @RandPaul an apology,” one of Paul’s Twitter followers said.
Paul replied: “No, he owes one to every single parent and school-age child in America. I told him this multiple times this summer.”
Fauci, the director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and Paul clashed a couple times in recent months over Covid lockdowns, with Paul arguing that children are not at risk of the virus the way older populations are.
“Dr. Fauci, every day we seem to hear from you things we can’t do. But when you’re asked, ‘Can we go back to school?’ I don’t hear much certitude at all. ‘Well, maybe.’ ‘It depends.’ Guess what? It’s rare for kids to transmit this. I don’t hear that coming from you. All I hear is, ‘We can’t do this, we can’t do that, we can’t play baseball,’ ” Paul said during a Senate hearing in late June.
“It’s important to realize that if society meekly submits to an expert and that expert is wrong, a great deal of harm may occur when we allow one man’s policy or one group of small men and women to be foisted on an entire nation,” he added.
This comes after Fauci recently admitted that Covid doesn’t pose a high risk for children, and as such should go back to school.
Those with ears to hear and the guts to do something about it!
