Fox News reporter Peter Doocy posed the question on every American’s lips Tuesday after Joe Biden, on orders from the CDC, declared that vaccinated Americans now have to wear masks in public again – If the vaccine works, why?
Doocy again was the only reporter in the White House gaggle to question the overlord’s decree, grilling Press Secretary Jen Psaki, who again had no logical answer.
Psaki said it is “Because the public health leaders in our administration have made the determination based on data, that that is a way to make sure they are protected, their loved ones are protected and that’s an extra step given the transmissibility of the virus.”
In other words, Americans all have to wear masks again ‘because we say so’.
There is no logic to the announcement, which is why Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, as well as others such as Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas), quickly responded by saying they would not be enforcing the new rule.
“I’m concerned that this guidance will be used as a vehicle to mandate masks in states and schools across the country, something I do not support,” Reynolds said, adding that the latest guidance is “not grounded in reality or common sense.”

Earlier in the day, Biden also announced he’s considering mandating the COVID-19 injection for all federal workers, also commenting that unvaccinated Americans are stupid.
“That’s under consideration right now, but if you’re not vaccinated you’re not nearly as smart as I thought you were,” Biden said.
