Governors Push Wearing Face Masks, Say They Are Cool

Of course, they aren’t cool enough for the Democrat governors to actually wear them themselves

(Breitbart) Democrat governors are encouraging residents to wear masks during the coronavirus pandemic, describing it as a symbol or a sign of virtue.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) said Tuesday that wearing a mask during the coronavirus pandemic signified “strength.”

“A face covering signifies strength and compassion for others,” Cooper said. “Wearing one shows that you care about other people’s health.”

Cooper also expressed the sentiment on Twitter.

Every time I’ve seen him on TV he has not been wearing one

On Tuesday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said that wearing a mask was “cool” and suggested he wanted to sign an executive order that said, “Wearing a mask is officially cool.”

“Wearing a mask is now cool,” Cuomo said. “I believe it’s cool. … Wearing a mask is officially cool.”

That link goes to a NY Times video of Cuomo talking about wearing a mask while he’s hold a mask and not wearing a mask. Nor is the person doing sign language (Cuomo also has a world killing water bottle, but that’s a different post)

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday told CNN that wearing a mask was a “symbol.”

“I want to protect myself and protect others, and also because I want to make it be a symbol for people to see that that’s the kind of thing you should be doing,” Fauci said, even though he reminded viewers that masks were “not 100 percent effective.”

The vast majority of masks people are wearing won’t stop the common cold, much less COVID-19. Even ones with filters won’t do it. Wearing one is a symbol. And, if you watch most governors when they are speaking they aren’t actually wearing one, despite telling everyone to wear one. Gretchen Whitmer, Gavin Newsome, etc., no masks.

“What it presents and projects is leadership,” Joe Biden said, berating President Trump for not wearing a mask. “Presidents are supposed to lead, not engage in folly and be falsely masculine.”

The mask Joe was wearing wouldn’t stop Coronavirus, either.

    So, the facemasks are just theater. And everyone knows it, but if you don’t go along with it, there is something wrong with you.

    Yesterday, from the CDC:

    CDC recommends wearing a cloth face covering as a measure to contain the wearer’s respiratory droplets and help protect their co-workers and members of the general public. Employees should not wear cloth face coverings at work if they have trouble breathing, any inability to tolerate wearing it, or if they are unable to remove it without assistance.
    Cloth face coverings are not considered personal protective equipment. They may prevent workers, including those who don’t know they have the virus, from spreading it to others but may not protect the wearers from exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19.

    Remind employees and clients that CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. Wearing a cloth face covering, however, does not replace the need to practice social distancing.
