As a general rule, if this idiot says something, I assume that the correct response is the opposite.
Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious diseases expert, told Americans on Sunday that removing masks on airplanes is ‘not something we should even be considering,’ as hundreds of flights in the U.S. continue to be canceled due to the spread of the Omicron variant across the country.
Appearing on ABC’s This Week, Fauci made the comment while answering Jonathan Karl’s question on the possibility of introducing a vaccine mandate for domestic air travel.
‘We want to make sure people keep their masks on. I think the idea of taking masks off, in my mind, is really not something we should even be considering,’ Fauci said.
Here’s the thing… as someone who has flown multiple times this year… the only time the vast majority of people wear a mask anymore is when flying and in the rideshare cars on the way to and from the airport. These same people get off the plane, take off their masks, and mingle in hotels, restaurants, resorts, stores, and homes. Even if you thing stupid cloth and flimsy paper masks work, their effectiveness ends at the airport doors. Masking on planes is useless as a means of mitigating the spread of the virus as witnessed by the rapid global spread of Omicron despite universal masking on planes.
But the evidence never mattered to Fauci and the government tyrants like him. It’s about the power. It’s about the control.
