‘Why was Rand Paul going to the Senate gym in the middle of a pandemic’: Ex-federal prosecutor demands answers

Published

on

Sen. Rand Paul isn’t showing symptoms of the coronavirus, but he tested positive for COVID-19. But that didn’t deter him from the gym. Other senators saw him at the members-only area on Sunday morning. It prompted one former federal prosecutor to ask why Paul was out and about to begin with and why he was putting the lives of others at risk.

“Why was Rand Paul swimming and going to the Senate gym in the middle of a pandemic?” asked Renato Mariotti.

Paul’s office said that once he was given a positive diagnosis, he immediately went into quarantine. It’s unclear why Paul still thought it was safe to be in public when he was waiting for test results.

It’s a question those at the Senate are asking too, according to CNN’s Manu Raju.

One of his followers explained it may be due to a kind of “libertarian selfishness” that prompted Paul to ignore physician suggestions for processes and precautions.

Others wondered why the gym was open, to begin with, when gyms across the country are closed. The members-only gym has now been closed.

Paul is also a doctor who attended the Duke University School of Medicine.

Reporter Robert Costa revealed that Jared Kushner has been coordinating the distribution of medical supplies with Republican donors.

The Washington Post national political reporter said President Donald Trump's son-in-law has sparked confusion in those efforts by placing himself in the chain of command, and both Kushner and trade adviser Peter Navarro were contradicting advice from White House medical experts.

"When you ask about the inner circle, it is clear to me," Costa told MSNBC's "Morning Joe," "based on my reporting, that Peter Navarro, more than anyone now, whether it's on urging the president to take a position that's different than Dr. [Anthony] Fauci, or when it comes to the Defense Production Act, nudging corporations, sometimes pushing corporations to do what the White House wants, that Navarro is at the center."

Published

CNN's John Berman on Monday got into a heated exchange with Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro after he questioned whether Berman actually wanted to see people recover from being infected with COVID-19.
