Monday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson lambasted Senator Dianne Feinstein for being caught in an airport without a mask.
Carlson explained “In the photographs, Feinstein can be seen smiling without a mask on. One might even say she’s sowing confusion about whether or not masks are necessary,”
He added “A pilot with a mask is walking in front of her carrying a bag and a dog.”
In June, Feinstein called for a nationwide mask mandate for airlines and public transit.
“I write to urge you to implement a mandatory mask policy for all airport and airline employees and passengers as cases of coronavirus continue to surge. I ask that you issue guidance as soon as possible so passengers can have a clear understanding of the requirements and so that we may reduce exposure for workers and travelers alike,” wrote Feinstein in her letter to the FAA.
“While some transit agencies and airlines have implemented mandatory mask guidance for the public, reports indicate that the patchwork of rules have only sowed confusion among passengers. Therefore, I ask that you issue clear, nationwide, mandatory mask requirements for all aviation employees and travelers.”
