Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul joined “Fox & Friends” Thursday to defend his earlier statements at Wednesday’s coronavirus hearing.
At the hearing, Paul challenged infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci’s stance on immunity and asked him to provide evidence on why people who have been vaccinated need to continue wearing masks.
“That’s the science of vaccines. When you get an infection or you get the vaccination, you develop immunity. Yet [Fauci] keeps moving the goal post saying, ‘well you might get this variant from South Africa.’ My point to him is: show us the evidence. Show us the scientific evidence that people who have already have Covid, people who have already had the vaccine, are getting it again,” Paul said on Fox & Friends.
“If they’re getting it in large numbers and they’re getting ill and going to the hospital and dying, we should know that. But it’s not true. It’s his conjecture. He says we might get it, therefore we need to wear the mask for another year.”
“It’s a ridiculous notion not based on science and what he is doing is theater and it goes against the science of vaccines. Dr. Fauci has immunity, he can’t get it again. He’s wearing a mask because it’s one of his noble lies to convince everybody to wear masks, but it’s not true.”
Paul went on to say that as an incentive for those who have been vaccinated, they should be allowed to not wear a mask.
“It should be the incentive for people to go out and get vaccinated,” Paul said.
Fauci said he “totally disagrees” with Paul and explained that new, highly contagious variants could pose a threat to people who have recovered from Covid or who have been vaccinated.
Fauci has said the U.S. is in a race against virus variants and he is concerned the country will “declare victory” over the virus too soon.
“I’m concerned that if we pull back in our enthusiasm for the fact that vaccines are rolling out, and things look good, if we pull back prematurely, we may trigger another surge. And that would really set us back in all the things that we’re trying to do,” Fauci said at the hearing Thursday.

Biden Administration shipping thousands of baby formula pallets to border while our shelves are empty
American Democrats won’t spend money to secure our borders but will send billions of dollars to Ukraine to help them secure theirs, and now they are taking away the little baby formula that’s left and giving that away, too.
As photos and videos of stores across the country that haven no more baby formula in stock are going viral on social media, Republican Congresswoman Kat Cammack made a shocking discovery. According to Cammack and reported by Townhall, “pallets of baby formula have been delivered by the Biden Administration as store shelves go bare.”
“Biden is sending pallets of baby formula to the border. Meanwhile, store shelves across America are empty and moms are being told they don’t know when more is coming in. Welcome to Biden’s America where American moms and dads are last,” Cammack posted on Facebook. “What is infuriating to me is that this is another example of an America last agenda. Pallets [of baby formula]”.
“The American government is sending by the pallet, thousands and thousands of containers of baby formula to the border,” she said in a video.
Border Patrol agents have been instructed not to take baby formula home for their own children.
The first photo is from this morning at the Ursula Processing Center at the U.S. border. Shelves and pallets packed with baby formula.
The second is from a shelf right here at home. Formula is scarce.
This is what America last looks like. pic.twitter.com/OO0V99njoy
