Senator Rand Paul has let everyone know his opinion on mask-wearing.
Sen. Paul in an interview with Breitbart News said wearing a mask is “all about submission to the government”.
He didn’t stop there though, the Senator from Kentucky stated cloth masks are no better than cutting up underwear and wearing them.
Watch Sen Paul’s full remarks below:

Face masks are "all about submission."
"There's no value to the cloth mask, at all. It's like wearing your underwear. You might as well cut your underwear up and wear your underwear as protection. It doesn't work." pic.twitter.com/kERmDG56Bl

Breitbart News covered Paul’s statements and release this report:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Breitbart News on Saturday that mask mandates — ostensibly issued for public health purposes — “are all about submission,” offering his remarks in an interview with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, FL.
Paul highlighted Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci’s ongoing advocacy for mask-wearing as a protective measure for public health.
“If Fauci has his way, you’ll never give up on the mask,” warned Paul. “It’s all about submission. They want you to submit to their will, whether there’s any science. In fact, like on schools, I’ve been telling Fauci for six months, the evidence is that if you open schools, you will not get a surge. The whole world accepts it, except for Dr. Fauci. He finally accepted it last week, six months after I started showing him the evidence.”

Newsweek covered the story too, see what they had to say:
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul said “no science” is able to corroborate mask mandates across the country, warning Americans that “submission” is the real aim of public health officials.
The Republican senator on Saturday reiterated remarks he made to Fox Business Thursday that “there’s no science to keeping schools closed, and there’s actually no good science to keeping restaurants closed, in fact there’s no good science that anything we’ve done has changed the trajectory” of the pandemic.
Speaking with Breitbart News at the Turning Point USA convention—a gathering of young conservatives—in West Palm Beach, Florida, Paul said minor health precautions as simple as washing one’s hands and keeping socially distant have made “no difference” in slowing the spread of coronavirus.
Paul, who practiced ophthalmology for 18 years before becoming a senator in 2010, ridiculed government mandates and just about any other public health measure taken since the start of the pandemic in March.
Senator Paul is right, masks have not lowered the number of cases of COVID at all, and statistics show that.
