“I think the Governors of New York and New Jersey should be removed from office,” said Paul. “I think they ought to be quarantined and separated from public policy because most of the deaths in most of those communities, the ones you can link not to mother nature and the terrible part of this disease, were public policy decisions.”

Paul also slammed some health experts for coronavirus hypocrisy when it comes to the lack of concern over the protests attended by thousands in cities across the country.
