MSNBC health expert’s plane-masking advice is self-admittedly certifiable: ‘I know this sounds crazy …’

In the wake of a court ruling that struck down the federal mask-wearing mandate on airplanes and public transportation, the left has shown its true colors with fear-mongering meltdowns.

Many Americans celebrated the decision Monday by U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle who noted that the mandate went beyond the statutory authority of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But the CDC soon issued a statement recommending masks still be worn in those settings and asked the Biden Justice Department to file an appeal.

And the left-leaning media continued to beat the drum of panic over suddenly unmasking while on public transportation or on flights. One eyebrow-raising bit of advice came from a health analyst on MSNBC who even admitted that what she was advising “sounds crazy.”

“If people want to stay safe, the best thing they can do — high-quality mask. And that when possible carry some extra masks,” Dr.  Kavita Patel suggested.

“I know this sounds crazy — but if you tell someone next to you on a plane — N95 mask or surgical mask and just say, ‘I’ve got an elderly mother at home or I’ve got a child with cancer at home, please do me a favor,” she added.

“Having the people at least closest to you in that row protecting yourself and them can be the best safety,” Patel said.

Patel’s advice was ridiculed on social media for being just as “crazy” as she thought.
