Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) will not back down on his opposition to yet another lockdown — a move he denounced as “arbitrary.”
Speaking with FOX Business on Thursday, Sen. Paul said the second wave of COVID-19 lockdowns are distracting from the gains that have been made with the vaccines. He ultimately hoped that the courts would intervene.
“Let’s hope, in this case, the court will intervene,” Paul said. “I’ve been calling my governor for months ‘DWP,’ drunk with power, because he’s taken this power without any consent from the legislature.”
“…the edicts that are coming from the governor, and from the governor of Michigan, they’re completely arbitrary,” he said. “They’re not based in any kind of science. There is really very little objective science to prove that any of this works.”
As to the cloth mask mandates, Paul, a physician, said that studies show that they do not work and exist merely as an act of “theater.”
