Dr. Anthony Fauci ought to be the punch line of many jokes by now, and if he were a Trump loyalist, he would be. Only because the corporate media refuse to mock him can he appear in public without catcalls and derision as his lot in life.
Yesterday, he blatantly contradicted what he told Senator Rand Paul under oath in testimony last March: yes, wearing a mask indoors after being vaccinated is just theatre (“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.”):
Dr. Fauci admits his wearing masks indoors despite being vaccinated was based on imagery, not science:

The big problem is that two months ago, Dr. Fauci testified the exact opposite under oath to Dr. Rand Paul (a doctor who actually treats people medically):
.@RandPaul evicerates Dr. Fauci over the “theater” of requiring Americans already immune from Covid to continue wearing masks.

Sen. Paul is not amused:
