The Terminator and former Republican governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is backing the current Democratic governor, Gavin Newsome, on the state's new measures requiring people to wear Covid-masks when in public.
"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."Unfortunately the United States of America is now under the boot of a president who is both an absolute moron and also can't read. Perhaps that's why Trump is almost never seen wearing a Covid mask.
It will be interesting to learn how many of Trump's flock will turn out to his rally this weekend without wearing masks.
However, Newsome and Schwarzenegger are right. So why are Canadian provinces not taking the obvious precaution of requiring people to wear masks when in public? You shouldn't be able to ride in a cab, on a bus or any conveyance without wearing a mask. You shouldn't be allowed to walk through a park, down a sidewalk, or into a store without wearing a mask. That's not too much to ask. Really, when you think about it, it's a piffle.
