Dr. Fauci on Tuesday admitted his mask-wearing indoors despite being vaccinated was all for show and not based on any science whatsoever.
In an interview with Good Morning America Tuesday morning, Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted to having continued to wear a mask indoors for appearance’s sake, not based on the science surrounding the protection of the vaccine.
Responding to questions on how the new mask mandates have changes his own personal mask wearing tendencies, Fauci responded, “I’m obviously careful because I’m a physician and a healthcare provider. I am now much more comfortable in people seeing me indoors without a mask.
“Before the CDC made the recommendation change,” Fauci admitted, “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 continued, speaking to the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Below we have a flashback where Rand Paul eviscerates Dr. Fauci over the “theater” of wearing masks post-vaccination — which Fauci insists he’s not doing.
Paul questioned Dr. Fauci on the necessity of masking after recovering from natural infection or vaccination. “Given that no scientific studies have shown significant numbers of reinfections of patients previously infected or previously vaccinated, what specific studies do you cite to argue that the public should be wearing masks well into 2022?”
Fauci didn’t understand the connection, he said, about “masks and reinfection.”
“You’re telling everyone to wear a mask,” Paul said, whether they have immunity or not. “If we’re not spreading the infection, isn’t it just theatre?”
“No, it’s not.”

On CNN he was even worse:
Fauci tells CNN: "I’m afraid, if people hear what [@RandPaul] says, and believe it, and you have an elderly person who has been infected, and they decide, ‘Well, Rand Paul says let’s not wear a mask,’ they won’t. They could get reinfected again and get into trouble." pic.twitter.com/XwYLdNOZYh

Fauci denied it was all for theater while he was under oath testifying before a senate committee.
