Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) pushed back on calls to wear face masks amid growing evidence they don’t work against COVID-19. While talking to reporters Tuesday, the Texas lawmaker was asked why he wasn’t wearing a mask at all times amid the spread of the Omicron variant.

“Just once I’d like to see a reporter say to Joe Biden when he stands at the damn podium (slams fist on podium) at the White House without a mask, ‘Mr. President why aren’t you wearing a mask?’” said the Republican.

Cruz continued by saying if Democrats like masks so much they should be able to wear those masks while others should be able to go mask-free.

“I do know Dr. (Anthony) Fauci has been all over the map on it; he said ‘yes’ masks, ‘no’ masks, he said I lied to the American people because they couldn’t handle it,” Cruz stated. “At some point, the American people ought to be able to exercise their own freedom and make their decision. If you want to wear a mask, God bless you. You can wear a mask the rest of your life, that’s your choice, but other people ought to be able to have the right and choice not to wear a mask.

Over the past two years, many Republicans have criticized masks as being a show of “political theatre” and “virtue signaling” that have no practical purpose.
