CNN medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen first gave the game away a couple of weeks ago when she admitted on air that cloth masks “are little more than facial decoration.” She walked it back a bit, saying she was only coming out in favor of mandating better masks: three-ply surgical masks at a minimum, with N95 or KN95 masks being preferred.

That message found its way to the Los Angeles Unified School District, which is reportedly mandating students to wear a non-cloth mask with a nose wire at all times. Someone whose glasses continually fogged up finally made the connection that breath was escaping those masks.

New York made 2-year-olds wear cloth masks.

The tweeter above was right — they’re never going to give up on masks, no matter what the science says, and no matter how schools are doing in red states that never had masking in the first place.
