(FreedomBeacon.com)- CNN medical analyst, former Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen said the quiet part out loud last Monday, admitting that the cloth masks everybody wears are just for show.
Now, anybody with two functioning brain cells already knew cloth masks were about as effective as wearing a fishnet condom. But it is surprising to hear one of the COVID Panic Porn Peddlers admit it on CNN.
This will come as rather disappointing news to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi who has spent the better part of the last 20 months coordinating her cloth masks to match her ensemble.
Wen joined CNN’s Victor Blackwell on Monday afternoon to offer her holiday gathering suggestions to those Americans who still bother watching CNN. She explained that “we” should keep events safe, but “we” should also make sure people have fun. She dismissed the idea of canceling everything, acknowledging that COVID is now a part of life.
But, Wen explained, people should make sure they’re vaccinated and wearing a mask even if they are outdoors. But not just any mask. Wen advised that masks should be 3-ply surgical masks, not cloth masks. Cloth masks, Wen explained “are little more than facial decoration” and there is no place for them “in light of Omicron.”

In other words, Leana Wen confirmed that the so-called “conspiracy theorists” were right when they said those cloth masks are useless.
Back in August, a former Biden advisor who is the research and policy director at the University of Minnesota Center for Infectious Disease said the same thing Wen said on Monday.
Dr. Michael Osterholm, while appearing on CNN in August, said most cloth coverings people are wearing are “not very effective in reducing any of the virus movement in or out.”
A few days later, Jen Psaki was asked about Osterholm’s remarks. She dismissed Osterholm, noting that he no longer worked as an advisor to the president and the White House would only follow the advice of “experts” who work in the federal government.
Jen Psaki is pressed about Former WH COVID Advisor Michael Osterholm's recent comments about the ineffectiveness of cloth masks.

That might explain why this White House’s COVID response has been such a failure.
