As Twitchy reported Monday, CNN medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen said on air that she didn’t think that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio should cancel the New Year’s Eve festivities in Times Square. “We need to continue activities that are of high-value while adding precautions that reduce risk,” she tweeted.

Many pointed out another part of the interview she posted online — the part where she admitted that “cloth masks are little more than facial decoration.” We figured she’d be “clarifying” that, and she did:

“We should require masks that are most effective to prevent disease transmission” — that doesn’t negate what she said about cloth masks at all.

She actually wasn’t evil enough to last as the president of Planned Parenthood. We knew she was going to try to walk this back.
