(PresidentialWire.com)- Last week, National Institutes of Health director Francis Collins appeared on CNN’s New Day and proceeded to tell the vapid hosts that parents should be wearing masks inside their own home if they have children too young to get the vaccine.

It’s almost as if the “experts” want Americans to stop taking them seriously.
“It seems weird?” No, it seems insane.
Public policy should only be determined by those elected to office. America’s system of government is one of self-government, not unaccountable, unelected bureaucrats making mandates and “laws.” But unfortunately, that is what we now have.
We have dopes like Francis Collins instructing parents to wander around their own homes masked. And we have the CDC’s Rochelle Walensky imposing an eviction moratorium that, if a landlord defies it, will result in that landlord facing both fines and jail time. Who elected Francis Collins or Rochelle Walensky? Nobody that’s who.
One Republican Senator who has consistently called out this kind of garbage is Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. Which, by the way, is precisely why the media and the Democrats despise him.
Paul isn’t shy about hitting back against the COVID pseudo-science of Anthony Fauci, Rochelle Walensky, or Francis “Wear a mask in your home” Collins.
Last week, Rand Paul appeared on Fox News Primetime with Ben Domenech to give his response to Collins’ insane suggestion, pointing out that there is absolutely no science behind it whatsoever.
Give it a watch HERE.
Notice once again someone from this administration issues a statement on cable news, then is forced to walk it back on Twitter. It’s become standard operating procedure for these people.
This is the problem with the government’s entire COVID response. Flip-flops, mixed messages, constant walk-backs, and fearmongering – Rand Paul is right, they’re panicking. And in their panic, they scramble around like their hair is on fire spitting out stupid suggestion after stupid suggestion without any consideration about “research” or “the science.”
The other problem is political.
The Democrats and the media are desperate to drag this COVID panic out to the Midterm elections. The Midterms are shaping up to be an absolutely slaughter for the Democrats, and the only hope they have is to deploy the same loose voting regulations that won them the election in 2020.
The question is, will Americans let them get away with it this time?
