VT: It has been a long time coming but finally Anthony Fauci has taken down Rand Paul once and forever, proving that Paul’s so-called medical education is sorely lacking in actual science.
This is a pure bloodbath and great TV to boot. Time to send Rand Paul to the showers.
AOL: Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) received a sharp education lesson on virus immunity and prevention from Dr. Anthony Fauci during a Senate hearing on Wednesday when the Kentucky physician attempted to attribute New York’s dramatic reduction in COVID-19 cases to herd immunity instead of people following safety protocols.
In a heated exchange, Dr. Fauci challenges Sen. Rand Paul’s assertion that New York’s current low positivity rate is attributable to “community immunity”: “If you believe 22% is herd immunity, I believe you’re alone in that” pic.twitter.com/36tDpA8cTy

During a heated back and forth, Paul, who has opposed mask mandates, criticized Fauci’s past praise of New York and its Democratic governor’s handling of the pandemic.
Dr. Fauci has had just about enough of Rand Paul, basically calls him a moron.

“New York had the highest death rate in the world,” Paul said. “How can we possibly be jumping up and down and saying, oh Gov. [Andrew] Cuomo did a great job? He had the worst death rate in the world.”
Watching dr. Anthony Fauci smackdown Rand Paul is just the moment of zen I needed today

Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, responded with a fact check.
“No, you misconstrued that, senator, and you’ve done that repetitively in the past,” Fauci fired back. “They got hit very badly. They made some mistakes. Right now … the things that are going on in New York to get their test positivity 1 percent or less is because they are looking at the guidelines that we have put together from the [coronavirus] task force.”
Rand Paul just confronted Dr. Fauci to his face on lockdowns:
“You have been a been fan of Cuomo and the shutdown in NY. You lauded NY for their policy. NY had the highest death rate in the world. How could we possibly be jumping up and down and saying Cuomo did a great job?” pic.twitter.com/VdXWVZ5TGM

I LOVED every second of Dr. Fauci ripping apart Rand Paul for spreading misinformation re: #COVID19
With 200K Americans dead, you would think that Senator Paul would care. You would THINK so? BUT, Rand Paul doesn’t care!pic.twitter.com/NRcFCCQi8Y
