Sen. Rand Paul: Fauci ‘Tends To Gloss Over The Science’

Paul went after Fauci, who has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and on the White House Coronavirus Task Force, for being overly cautious and not respecting personal liberties.

Paul alluded to a clip showed to him of Fauci shortly before Nov. 3, explaining that “normal life” will likely not return until the end of 2021 … Read more.
