Rand Paul tells the government’s leading epidemiologist Dr. Fauci that he is “not the end all,” which is quite the lecture coming from the guy who visited the Senate gym while infected with coronavirus.

*I* had it already, so I’m safe. Why should I care about what might happen to other people?
To the approximately 2 million New Yorkers and others who got coronavirus and survived, don’t let these busybodies tell you that you don’t have immunity. They want you to be lemmings and do as THEY see fit. RESIST!

Yes, but there was a black Democrat in the Oval Office, back then…
Worth recalling, Rand Paul was one of the biggest, more destructive, spreaders of misinformation and panic about how Ebola may spread. That he’s downplaying COVID spread now is quite the 180https://t.co/0n7v2l8oLp
