Jon Franks, Montel’s Senior Advisor and the President of LUCID STRATEGIES returns to Let’s be Blunt to discuss the increasingly crazy politicization of mask-wearing in this time of COVID-19. Across the country, as a result of increasing politicization of masks, good people have been misled about masks by false information like “masks cause hypoxia” (or CO2 poisoning). In this episode, Jon wears a 3m N-95 mask with no exhalation valve throughout the interview while monitoring his blood oxygen levels (O2 sat). Jon even wears 3 masks at once to demonstrate that wearing a mask does not reduce blood oxygen levels. Montel and Jon discuss the ways in which masks have become a partisan issue as well as the need for Americans to act like grownups and take steps like wearing a mask so that we can keep the economy open and kids can return to school.
