Far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) asked a ridiculous question about the coronavirus on her recently reinstated Twitter account — and got a torrent of predictably acrid replies.
“I just want to ask you,” Greene continued. “If a pair of underwear, really thick ones, high quality cotton, can’t protect you from a fart, then how will a mask protect you from covid??”
While masks are no longer legally required in many situations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says “masking is a critical public health tool for preventing the spread of COVID-19, and it is important to remember that any mask is better than no mask.”
Greene’s question is nonsense. Fart molecules are much smaller than COVID ones.
