Pittsburgh mayor Bill Peduto steps on his own message, allows ‘Trump Boat Parade’ to proceed

Pandemic

I’m betting that participants will not in fact socially distance and will not in fact wear face masks. They will spread the novel coronavirus among each other and then to vulnerable people, who will require hospitalization. They will not be paying the costs of that hospitalization.

How can I be so confident? Mask-wearing has become politicized—Democrats, who are unlikely to participate in the Trump Boat Parade, wear masks much more frequently than Republicans, and men who object to wearing masks often do so because they perceive that their masculinity is threatened.[1]

I don’t want to fucking hear it. If you don’t wear a mask, you should be taken to a psychiatric hospital prison and left there as a psychopath, unfit ever for release into society again. Because at this point, you’re just making this shit up.
