Dr Fauci on the hot seat

Yesterday a strange thing happened at the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing. Senator Rand Paul actually confronted the man responsible for America's original lock down last spring. Dr Fauci was directly asked about his demands that even the vaccinated continue wearing masks indefinitely.
(I had trouble focusing on Sen Paul with that distracting background)
“You’re telling everybody to wear a mask, whether they’ve had an infection or a vaccine?
“What studies do you have that people who have had the vaccine or have had the infection are spreading the infection?
"If we’re not spreading the infection, isn’t it just theater?
"If you’ve had the vaccine and you’re wearing two masks, isn’t that theater?
Dr Fauci could only respond with:
“Here we go again with the theater.” Dr Fauci then raised his concerns about "variants."
“What study shows significant reinfection, hospitalization, and death either after natural infection or a vaccine?”
“It doesn’t exist… There is no evidence there are significant reinfections after a vaccine.”
“You’ve been vaccinated and you parade around in two masks for show. You can’t get it again… You want to get rid of vaccine hesitancy?
"Tell them they can quit wearing their masks after they get the vaccine.”
Dr Fauci was unable to cite any studies. He was left to mutter: “Well, let me just state for the record that masks are not theater." “Masks are protective.”
As his time was running out Sen Paul, who is a doctor, managed to respond with the final word - “If you already have immunity, they are theater.”
Dr Fauci's high horse was nowhere to be found.
