Sen Rand Paul (R-KY) isn’t a fan of our nation’s top infectious diseases expert. The Kentucky Republican isn’t a fan of any expert for that matter, or even science, amid the raging pandemic that has gripped the United States. So, Paul took a minute to berate Dr. Anthony Fauci for not being more optimistic over the pandemic that has killed more than one hundred and twenty-thousand Americans.

Paul said, “We just need more optimism,” when in reality, what Americans need are facts, something that’s been lacking from the president. While speaking to lawmakers on the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, Rand argued against taking advice from experts, then told Fauci that he wasn’t optimistic enough.


Social media users captured Fauci’s facial expression at one point when Rand was talking.

We are all Rand Paul’s next-door neighbor now.

Rand’s diatribe angered Twitter users.

“We shouldn’t presume that a group of experts somehow knows what’s best for everyone,” Rand Paul said — and that should be used as an ad against re-electing the covidiot.
