Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who is a doctor, went at it with White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci Tuesday, suggesting his approach lacked humility and that he was exercising too much power.
I think we ought to have a little bit of humility in our belief that we know what’s best for the economy. And as much as I respect you, Dr. Fauci, I don’t think you’re the end-all. I don’t think you’re the one person that gets to make a decision.”
We’re opening up a lot of economies around the U.S., and I hope that people who are predicting doom and gloom and saying, ‘Oh, we can’t do this’ … will admit that they were wrong if there isn’t a surge because I think that’s what’s going to happen.
Fauci responded that he was only trying to make the best recommendations he could based on public health.
