Last week, the CDC updated their mask guidelines to say that fully vaccinated invidiuals no longer have to wear a mask.
This was a huge departure from previous statements by Dr. Fauci, who continued to wear TWO masks despite his vaccination in early 2021.
On Monday, Dr. Fauci admitted that his mask-wearing had less to do with science and more to do with optics.
He told Good Morning America that “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,” Fauci said.
Just months ago during heated Senate testimony, Senator Rand Paul insisted that Dr. Fauci was wearing masks for “theater,” considering he was already vaccinated.
At that time, Fauci responded “I totally disagree with you.”
