This is why Ted Rall is a national treasure.
Anybody else notice that thousands of recent news stories, opinions, editorial cartoons, and millions of snarky posts failed to even mention the great mask hoax?
As usual, their lie is sprinkled with half-truths and ‘good’ [for whom?] intentions.
N-95 masks, properly used by trained professionals, protect the wearer from contamination and also prevent the wearer from contaminating others.
Any mask covers your mouth & nose will help prevent you from infecting others, and used properly, somewhat lessen your chances of someone directly contaminating you.
Thanks Ted, for the welcome and timely reminder:
The roots of our problems with government goes way, way deeper than Trump. They all lied about masks when we should have been advised to wear them all along. I seriously doubt that — with this particular issue — it would have been different under any president.
