“Real Time” host Bill Maher mocked the update from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention hide advice, calling it “confusing”.
“The CDC has released new mask guidelines now, which is so confusing,” Maher said Friday night on her HBO program. “Inside, outside, vaccinated, unvaccinated, masked, unmasked. Walmart shoppers don’t know who to hit.”
“So now we go back to wearing the mask in front of the restaurant until the waiter brings the breadsticks,” Maher said. “It’s called science, folks! Sometimes I think we have to cover our faces so that other people can cover their a–.”
His comments came in response to the CDC’s update of its mask guidelines on Tuesday for vaccinated people on the threat of the delta variant of the virus. He is now urging people in parts of the country with “high” or “substantial” transmission of COVID-19 to hide indoors.

Some Democratic leaders have also reimposed mask warrants in response to the update, including in Washington DC., and Atlanta. While stores like Apple have announced that they will require most shoppers and employees to wear masks regardless of their immunization status, and Walmart announced workers in high-risk counties will be forced to wear masks.

And Nancy Pelosi treated him. Asshole. Congress, we have some decorum, she said ‘My esteemed moron,’ “Maher continued in her remarks, and also told viewers,” By the way, wash off the mask. ”

Some Republican leaders and lawmakers have pushed back the reimposition of mask mandates, including when dozens of House GOP members and staff marched on the Senate floor on Thursday to protest a mask warrant for the lower house.
“With the majority of Americans, we have rejected President Pelosi’s totalitarian, hypocritical and arbitrary decision to require masks to be worn in the House,” Representative Madison Cawthorn told Fox News in a statement Thursday.
