We think Senator Rand Paul did a complete take-down of Dr. Fauci at a Senate hearing this past week. The video has generated much commentary from both sides of the issue: Is Fauci doing a competent job?

We add that Fauci comes off as a publicity hound, frequently espousing punching above his weight theories that direct the conversation towards himself. He cuddles the current administration to gain more star power. He wants to be the story.
Thankfully, leaders like Paul know how to verbally spank a student and send him/her home from school.
