Seeing as Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has managed to drive Boeing out of state, it’s funny to hear him talk about aircraft, but he thinks he has an analogy that will really make people understand the importance of wearing a mask. You see, masks today are what aircraft carriers were during World War II.
What aircraft carriers were in World War II, masks are today. #MaskUpWA

Love you man, but aircraft carriers were the top-of-the-line military tech (at the time) to project Naval/Air power far from our shores. Masks are very important, but this comparison is….reaching, let's say.

It's not that you're a historical ignoramus but you don't even understand logic.

Participants of the Battle of Midway would disagree.
On both sides.

Very true. Japanese navy was really never the same after they lost all their masks at Midway.
