In stark a contrast Wednesday, Twitter users did not take too kindly to the White House announcement that the travel mask mandate will be extended another 15 days, while on MSNBC Andrea Mitchell and NIH Director Anthony Fauci wanted more.
The news elicited a wave of anger from conservatives and the anti-lockdown side of Twitter who remembered how the first wave of COVID-19 restrictions started with a “Two weeks to stop the spread” plan in 2020.
The article goes on to state the following:
Fox New columnist Bethany Mandel reacted with some sarcasm, saying, “Two weeks to stop the spread. That’ll do it.”
“Why only 15 days?” Mitchell asked Fauci on Wednesday.
“I would agree we really do need more time,” Fauci replied.

“We’ve seen this play before. “Two weeks to slow the spread,” Sen. Ted Cruz tweeted. “Enough with the mandates!”

Many others slammed the move to extend the mandate around the same time the Biden administration decided to end Title 42 at the border.
“The CDC has extended the airplane mask mandate an additional two weeks because being on airplanes without a mask isn’t safe due to covid,” radio host Clay Travis tweeted. “Simultaneously the same CDC has opened up our Southern border and ended Title 42 because they say covid is no longer a threat.”

“On one hand, the CDC extends travel mask mandates, while on the other, they announce they will be dropping Title 42 at the border,” Fox’s Bill Melugin wrote.

Joe Biden’s CDC just announced they will extend the mask mandate on airplanes.
Two weeks ago, the same CDC announced they will be ending Title 42 at the southern border.
So covid restrictions will end for illegal immigrants but continue for Americans.

It is truly ridiculous that the CDC removed covid restrictions for illegal migrants but is going to keep forcing the rest of us to wear masks on airplanes. The agency has become wildly politicized and shouldn’t have the power to do any of this.

Twitter users pushed back on the ‘moronic’ extension as ‘theater’ and encouraged airlines to refuse enforcement of the ‘ridiculous’ mandate.
CDC extends airline mask mandate 15 more days, to May 3, 2022.
Airlines should just say no.
Refuse to enforce it.
What’s Biden gonna do? Shut them down? LOL. No.

This will do absolutely nothing except further inconvenience passengers and make them uncomfortable.
It’s moronic. https://t.co/B51DKyhfco

The evidence – Masks don’t work.
Scientists – Masks don’t work.
European and British airlines – Masks don’t work.
TSA – Masks work! Two weeks to two years to slow the spread.

This is getting incoherent. No one is kept safer by my pro-forma silk scarf compliance AND I’m irritated at having to do it https://t.co/Mh1FiHfJcz

I’m just going to declare every flight I’m on “historic” so that I don’t have to wear a mask. That’s how it works for Kamala Harris and DC Democrats when they break mask rules. Good enough for them, good enough for the rest of us.https://t.co/bBqBtYjQ0m
