This Republican Senator’s live phone-in took a hilarious but totally NSFW turn
Republican Senator, Rand Paul, is a devotee of Trump, refusing to condemn the former president’s behaviour during or since holding office.
He is, however, prepared to accuse the National Institutes of Health of colluding with the Wuhan lab to release Covid-19 as an experiment.
Dr. Fauci, one of its senior officials, took understandable exception.
RAND PAUL: Knowing it's a crime to lie to Congress, do you wish to retract your statement where you said the NIH never funded gain of function research in Wuhan?
FAUCI: I've never lied before Congress & I don't retract that statement … you don't know what you're talking about pic.twitter.com/UtWoO2KHsb

Paul, a long-standing anti-vaxxer, who believes that the MMR jab causes autism, recently carried out a virtual townhall meeting, inviting members of the public to ask him questions.
One person rang in with a statement – an instruction – rather than a question, and it was absolutely not safe for work.
It soon made its way to Twitter, courtesy of Republican-turned-Democrat, Ron Filipkowski.
You know, these TikTok pranksters are really out of control. Rand Paul is a United States Senator! Does he really deserve this kind of disrespect? pic.twitter.com/1HvVmiFsrX

He looks confused. She should have said it in Russian.

I hope all Kentucky residents are ready to tell Rand Paul to get fucked in 2022!

A lot of people expressed their love for Alexis Toon, the frank caller.
Does anyone know who she is? Please DM me her contact info. I need to marry her

They could be in luck. Over on TikTok, she made herself known, with this addition to her instruction to Rand Paul. And guess what – it’s NSFW.
When they call you to ask you to be part of a live Town Hall and listen to Rand spew misinformation. This was taken down for bullying ##randpaul
That seems clear.
