AMC Theaters Not Requiring Masks Because they are too Political

WTF? WEARING A GODDAMN MASK ISN’T POLITICAL YOU FUCKING MORONS! It’s science. Masks drastically cut down transmission of the virus. Listen to the scientists on this matter, not to some disgraced impeached, bleach drinking, lying piece of festering feces that is currently masquerading as president. Why is this country so stupid?

AMC will not mandate that all guests wear masks, although employees will be required to do so. Nor will AMC perform temperature checks on customers, though it will monitor its employees’ temperatures and have them undergo screenings to check for signs of coronavirus. The situation will be different in states and cities that require residents to wear a mask when they’re in public, but Aron said that AMC was wary of wading into a public health issue that has become politicized.

“We did not want to be drawn into a political controversy,” said Aron. “We thought it might be counterproductive if we forced mask wearing on those people who believe strongly that it is not necessary. We think that the vast majority of AMC guests will be wearing masks. When I go to an AMC feature, I will certainly be wearing a mask and leading by example.”

Florida shatters daily record with 3,207 new coronavirus cases

From USA Today:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida added another 3,207 coronavirus cases Thursday, shattering the previous daily record as the state emerges as an alarming hot spot among places grappling with a resurgence of the disease.

Thursday’s new record topped the 2,783 cases reported just two days earlier by the Florida Department of Health, which had been the third record-setting total in less than a week.

There have been 85,926 coronavirus cases reported in Florida since the outbreak began and 3,061 deaths. The state reported 43 additional COVID-19 deaths Thursday.

Looks like they may have to start shutting things down to slow the spread and flatten the curve. What does their fearless Trump-suckling governor have to say?

Gov. Ron DeSantis said after Tuesday’s record high that he had no plans to pull-back on reopening efforts that he launched in May and since expanded.

“We’re not shutting down, we are going to go forward, we are going to continue to protect the most vulnerable,” DeSantis said Tuesday, adding, “the negative effects” of shutting down again would be much worse than “any gains you’re getting.”

Oh.

Schwarzenegger: Anyone making coronavirus masks a ‘political issue is an absolute moron’

True story:

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) on Thursday lauded new California measures requiring residents to wear masks outside of their homes, saying that “Anyone making it a political issue is an absolute moron who can’t read.”

The measures were released by the state health department Thursday as the state gradually reopens businesses amid the coronavirus pandemic. It calls for residents to wear face coverings when they are inside or in line to enter a public space, in addition to other settings.

“This is 100% the right move,” Schwarzenegger tweeted. “This will help us beat this terrible virus. The science is unanimous – if we all wear masks, we slow down the spread and can reopen safely. It’s not a political issue. Anyone making it a political issue is an absolute moron who can’t read.”
