Dr. Fauci, Sen. Rand Paul Clash Over Masks

Dr. Fauci Testifies Before Senate Committee On Federal Response To COVID-19

(Washington, DC) - Senator Rand Paul is clashing with the White House chief medical advisor over masks. 

The Kentucky Republican questioned Dr. Anthony Fauci in a hearing Thursday over the need for vaccinated people to continue to wear masks. 

Paul asked if it was "just theater" to require vaccinated people to wear them because, in Paul's words, "there's virtually zero-percent chance" they're going to get COVID. 

Fauci shot back, saying "masks are not theater" and the emergence of highly contagious variants poses a threat to people who have recovered from COVID or who have been vaccinated.
