*Trevor Noah is firing shots at folks who refuse to wear a face mask or covering in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
As reported by thejasminebrand, during a recent episode of “The Daily Show” Noah said: “Now, when the coronavirus pandemic began, the CDC said people didn’t need to wear masks unless they were showing symptoms. But a couple of weeks ago, they changed their mind after realizing that if everyone wore masks in public, it could stop people from spreading the disease.”
He continued: “Now, this all seems reasonable enough, right? Everyone just needs to wear a mask when you’re gonna be outside around other people. But apparently, it’s the furthest thing from simple.”
He also reminded viewers, “Wearing a mask can make it hard to breathe. You know what else can make it hard to breathe? Coronavirus.”

Noah pointed out the absurdity of refusing to wear a face covering amid this global health crisis.
“Forget a vaccine, scientists need to start working on a chill pill,” Noah said. “Health officials are asking us to cover our faces to protect ourselves and everyone’s acting like they have to get spayed and neutered.
“The people who don’t wear masks are ruining it for everyone,” he continued, noting a park in Miami that had to be closed due to people defying the guidelines. “Miami, you know I love you, but what are you doing? Getting mad about being asked to cover your face? I’ve been to Miami, nobody’s looking at anybody’s face.”
He then mentioned the security guard in Michigan who was reportedly shot after a confrontation with a customer who refused to wear a face mask inside a Family Dollar store.
“Whoa! Why are people so angry? Health officials are asking for us to cover our faces to protect ourselves, and everyone’s acting like they have to get spayed and neutered. And the people who don’t wear masks are ruining it for everyone […] Nobody’s looking at anybody’s faces. But if we know that masks can help save lives and stop the spread of coronavirus, why are so many people refusing to wear masks when they go out in public? Well, one reason is that, just, honestly, they’re not super comfortable.”
After analyzing a series of stories about the public’s reaction to face coverings, Noah said: “The question [still] remains why are so many Americans resistant to wearing a mask in public? It is really weird to me that so many of these people who refuse to wear masks claim to be proud patriots who would do anything for their country. Because right now, America is at war with the coronavirus, and if you’re going out in public without wearing a mask, well, then, you’re fighting for the other side.”
