Jared Polis Calls Colorado Anti-Maskers ‘Selfish Bastards’ on Facebook
Governor Jared Polis pulled no punches describing how he feels about Colorado residents who don't wear a mask in a Monday social media post.
As the mask debate continues to heat up around the country, Colorado's governor is stepping into the ring with a post on Facebook Sunday (July 12) specifically calling out people who don't believe in wearing a mask. The comments were attached to an article from the University of California that shows, in a new study, wearing a mask reduces "risk by 65 percent".
If you’re a selfish bastard and wearing a mask to protect others isn’t enough of a reason to do so, then maybe protecting yourself is?
According to Newsweek, this followed a flurry of new orders from the governor limiting petition gathering for elections, adding rent relief to struggling residents, and requiring high-risk residents to stay home as much as possible.
