The Federalist's Ben Domenech on Sen. Rand Paul's exchange with Dr. Anthony Fauci: "Look, I want to be measured and when i am saying here, Dr. Fauci is someone who has worked very hard for the American people. He is in many ways someone that we all should respect, but I think that the fact is that he is someone as a messenger who has outlived his usefulness to both administrations, this one in the previous one because of his inconsistency is and because I think people see through this kind of theater that Rand Paul was criticizing. Which basically says, despite the fact that you've been vaccinated, even if you have gone through this whole procedure in order to get the shots, nothing about your life is going to change under our guidelines. That's the opposite of the message we ought to be sending and it is the opposite of the message politicians ought to be sending. Virtually all of them that you see on your tv cameras have been vaccinated. They are not going to be transmitting this disease, they are not vulnerable to it anymore, and instead of living that out in front of us as an incentive for more Americans to get vaccinated, they are engaged in this type of theater that is to play on our cameras that really illustrates to people, you shouldn't even bother because nothing about your life is going to change, and that to me is very dangerous."
