Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul told Laura Ingraham on her show that Dr. Anthony Fauci has framed himself as a “Greek philosopher” who has been forced to feed the public “noble lies.”
“But you have to remember that his lies are noble lies, Laura. He’s not telling you this because he’s a mean man,” Paul said. “He’s telling you this because he feels sorry for you because you don’t understand, and Americans aren’t smart enough to make informed decisions. So, he fashions himself some sort of Greek philosopher. He tells you these noble lies.”
Paul made note of Fauci’s ever-changing recommendations on masks over the last year as an example of his “noble lies.”
“So, at first, he told you that all the masks don’t work. But he told you that because he wanted to protect the N-95 masks, which actually in a health setting do work,” Paul said. “But then, later on, he said, all masks do work. But that’s also a lie also because really only the N-95 masks work.”
“It’s a compilation of lies,” the Kentucky Republican continued. “But they’re all done to protect you because he doesn’t think you’re smart enough to make any of these decisions on your own.”
Paul also slammed President Biden’s latest COVID-19 speech and his tyrannical statement about maybe letting us congregate a little by July 4th.
“Well to show you so far out of touch President Biden is, he said he’s going to let us get together with two or three people from our family July 4th,” Paul said. “Has he not met anybody? Everybody is making their own decisions now. Where we are forced to comply with Dr. Fauci and his Faucisms, we do. But in private, most of us are doing what we want, when we want, and have been for a long, long time. We do try to take precautions.”
Paul also expressed doubt about the efficacy of lockdowns.
