On Friday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) criticized the measures Kentucky is putting in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.


Paul's criticism did not sit well with social media commenters, many of whom pointed out he himself had just recovered from COVID-19 — and that he swam in the Senate swimming pool hours before his test came back positive.
