Senator Rand Paul and Dr. Anthony Fauci got into a heated exchange on Capitol Hill Thursday when the Republican accused the senior White House advisor of indulging in “theater” by wearing two face-masks after being fully vaccinated.
“You have the vaccine and you’re wearing two masks, isn’t that theater?” the Senator told Fauci.

God bless Rand Paul.
To Dr. Fauci: "You've been vaccinated, and you parade around in two masks for show … You want people to get the vaccine? Give 'em a reward instead of saying the nanny state's gonna be there for a few more years and you gotta wear masks forever."

FAUCI on MASKS: Two Coverings ‘Would Be More Effective’ in Preventing Spread of Coronavirus
Dr. Anthony Fauci revised his previous comments regarding mask-wearing to prevent the spread of CoVID-19 this week; saying “two coverings would be more effective.”
“Because, I mean, this is a physical covering to prevent droplets and virus to get in,” Fauci told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie on Monday. “So, if you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on — it just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective, and that’s the reason why you see people either double-masking or doing a version of an N95.”
“Just 100 days to mask, not forever, 100 days. And I think we’ll see a significant reduction,” Biden said in December.

DIRE PREDICTION: Fauci Warns Americans of ‘Another Spike’ of CoVID Cases Despite Vaccines
Senior White House advisor Doctor Anthony Fauci warned Americans of an impending spike in CoVID cases; saying there’s simply too much “viral activity” occurring despite the distribution of tens of millions of vaccines.
“We’ve just now recently experienced the worst surge,” Fauci said. “The issue is that we are starting to plateau. That plateau is about 60,000 to 70,000 cases a day. When you have that much viral activity in a plateau, it almost invariably means that you are at risk of another spike.
“Many countries in Europe have seen just that — over the past week, an increase in cases by 9 percent, something we desperately want to avoid,” he added.
“Many of us will recall very, very vividly — in the end of the winter and the beginning of the spring — we had a surge that was dominated by the New York metropolitan area. After the surge, what we came down to was a baseline of about 20,000 cases per day. That is a very high baseline, relatively speaking,” he said.
