Sen. Rand Paul slammed former Vice President Joe Biden and Obama Administration officials over the unmasking of Gen. Michael Flynn.
Dr. Anthony Fauci responded Sen. Rand Paul's (R-KY) statement that it would be "kind of ridiculous" to make nation-wide decisions for reopening the country, especially to suggest that children be kept out of school in the fall by saying we should be careful not to think that children are completely immune to Covid-19 and addressed Paul saying Dr. Fauci didn't have the final word on if states should reopen.

Anthony Fauci bluntly told Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday that he has never put himself up as the definitive authority on the coronavirus pandemic.

"I have never made myself out to be the end all and only voice in this. I'm a scientist, a physician and a public health official. I give advice according to the best scientific evidence," Fauci, the director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during a Senate hearing about the coronavirus pandemic.

Fauci pushed back on Paul's comments that scientists should "have a little bit of humility" because they do not know what's best for the economy.

"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," Paul said. "We can listen to your advice, but there are people on the other side saying there's not going to be a surge, that we can safely reopen the economy, and the facts will bear this out."

Fauci responded that he doesn't give economic advice.

"I don't give advice about anything other than public health," Fauci said.
