Joe Biden is trying to get more Americans to take the COVID vacccine.
Senator Rand Paul has a suggestion for Biden to help achieve this goal and it’s rooted in freedom.
Paul thinks Biden should burn his mask on TV. It’s not a bad idea.
FOX News reports:
Sen. Rand Paul: If Biden wants more Americans vaccinated, he should ‘burn his mask’ on national TV
If President Biden wants to motivate more Americans to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, he should “go on national TV, take his mask off and burn it,” Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told “The Story” Wednesday.
“[Biden should] light a torch to it and burn his mask and say, ‘I’ve had the vaccine. I am now safe from this plague. If you’ll get the vaccine you can be safe too,’” Paul told host Martha MacCallum. “The burden of proof should be on the government to prove we’re spreading it. [If we are.] then we’ll listen to them. Instead it sounds like fear-mongering.”
Paul also continued his criticism of White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci for insisting that vaccinated Americans continue to wear massk to avoid inadvertently infecting vulnerable people.
“The science is about proving that things are happening,” he said. “If Dr. Fauci can prove that people who are vaccinated are spreading the disease, I will listen to him. If he can prove people like me, who have already had it [COVID-19], are spreading the disease, I’ll listen to him. But there is no evidence of that.”

While this is a fun idea, it’s highly unlikely to happen.
Biden is part of the government class that is benefiting from the pandemic.
It gave them power and they don’t want to give it back.
