The beef between Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul and Dr. Fauci has been ongoing for months — but this just made it even juicier!
Sen. Paul is placing a great deal of blame for the thousands of monthly COVID-19 deaths squarely on Dr. Anthony Fauci over his bias toward vaccines versus therapeutics.
“I would venture to say that thousands of people die in our country every month now from COVID because Fauci deemphasized the idea that there are therapeutics,” Paul, who is also a doctor, said in an interview on the Ron Paul Liberty Report.
Senator Rand Paul on Fauci's History of Hindering Therapeutics In Favor of Vaccines

Noting Fauci’s failure to develop a solution for the AIDS virus, Sen. Paul hinted that perhaps vaccines aren’t the best solution to every viral outbreak.
“I think Fauci is of the philosophy that vaccines are incredibly successful and are the way to go versus therapeutics, for example. With regards to AIDS, he wanted to develop a vaccine. There’s nothing wrong with that, but as we can see a vaccine didn’t work for the AIDS virus.”
Paul has previously backed the use of monoclonal antibodies in treatment, saying they “are one of the most promising treatments for the virus” once a person has contracted COVID.
Recent data showed that monoclonal antibody treatment cuts the risk of death and hospitalization by 70% in high-risk patients and reduces the chance of infection among a household by 80%.
Monoclonal antibodies have only just begun to be mentioned by the mainstream media, and misinformation still plagues government bureaucrats when discussing this scientifically-backed treatment.
Fauci, an immunologist and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who served on former President Donald Trump’s White House Coronavirus Task Force and is now President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser on COVID-19, has come under fire of late. The 81-year-old doctor has been at the helm of handling the pandemic since its beginning, and some critics say he has not succeeded.
On Sunday, the top U.S. immunologist admitted the federal government failed to authorize and distribute at-home COVID tests in a timely way.
He also came under fire on Monday when he suggested a federal requirement for vaccines on domestic flights. “That’s another incentive to get more people vaccinated,” he said during an appearance on MSNBC. “If you want to do that with domestic flights, I think that’s something that seriously should be considered.”
Meanwhile, Fauci is still the mainstream media darling he’s always been. He’s brilliantly positioned himself as the all-powerful guide of science and anyone who doesn’t worship at his alter is a de facto conspiracy theorist.
