"The Donald Trump of L.A. County" Won't Enforce New Mask Mandate

NEWSWEEK:  Alex Villanueva, the Los Angeles County Sheriff who has been called "the Donald Trump of L.A. County," has said that his office will not enforce the county's recently re-instated mask mandate. Villanueva says the mandate is "not backed by science."

The county's indoor mask mandate went back into effect on Saturday by order of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH).

"Forcing the vaccinated and those who already contracted COVID-19 to wear masks indoors is not backed by science and contradicts the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines," he claimed. "The underfunded/defunded Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department will not expend our limited resources.”


REMNANT COMMENT: So here we go again. They failed to intimidate the thinking people in this country into getting the jab, and so now they're just going to start making things up again.

A few weeks ago, I sat and listened to Tony Fauci tell the children running CNN that the vaccines were perfectly effective against the variants, so just "get vaccinated now!" and everything would be hunky dory. 

Uncle Joe Biden said we could have a 'lil cookout' on the Fourth of July so long as most of us got vaccinated by then. 

Well, half the country apparently told Biden to pound sand, and now--waddaya know!--the variants are terrifying the vaccines into ineffectiveness and we all need to mask up again.

Bottom line: If you're still falling for these scary COVID stories for children, that's on you. Maybe you should pray to the Easter Bunny... or something.  

Meanwhile, thanks to Sheriff Villanueva for remaining one of the few adults left in the entire state of California.
