“I mean, before the CDC made the recommendation change, I didn’t want to look like I was giving mixed signals.”
Time for everyone who criticized Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) to eat crow. They jumped on him in March when he told Dr. Anthony Fauci, “You’re not wearing a mask because of science.”
Two months later Dr. Fauci admitted he wore a mask indoors to avoid mixed signals. He did not base his choice on science. It was all about those pesky signals.
The CDC finally said fully vaccinated people do not need a mask indoors or outdoors in most settings. In other words, they finally caught up to the science that so many of us already knew: vaccines work.
Fauci told George Stephanopoulos:
Well, you know, George, I’m obviously careful because, I mean, I’m a physician and a health care provider. I am now much more comfortable in people seeing me indoors without a mask. I mean, before the CDC made the recommendation change, I didn’t want to look like I was giving mixed signals. But being a fully vaccinated person, the chances of my getting infected in an indoor setting is extremely low. And that’s the reason why in indoor settings now I feel comfortable about not wearing a mask, because I’m fully vaccinated.
