Joe Biden was heavily criticized Thursday for saying during the presidential debate that the best way to beat COVID-19 is to “wear a mask all the time”.
Biden accused President Trump of having “no comprehensive plan” to combat the virus and said his plan was to “make sure everyone was encouraged to wear a mask all the time.”
As has been comprehensively noted, masks are not a solution to the virus and were almost universally dismissed as an effective weapon against it from the start, before governments grabbed hold of the concept and started giving them the mandate to give the impression that they were taking action.
Many were quick to point out that wearing a mask all the time is not a plan:
What is Biden’s plan to fight the coronavirus? Wear a mask.
It’s not a plan, man.

Biden: “I would make sure to advise everyone to wear a mask all the time”
Tbh, I should probably wear a mask while I’m pooping.

“Wear a mask all the time.”
I feel like this requires follow-up.

“I would make sure everyone was encouraged to wear a mask all the time,” Biden says – totally disqualifying, in my opinion

Um, people don’t want to wear masks all the time Joe.

Biden’s Covid Plan: Mask Mania. Mask all the time. Masks masks masks.
6 months ago, it was “tests tests tests”
Lockdowners don’t know how to stop this virus and got it wrong every step of the way

Damn, why not wear TWO masks all the time?
Biden also said he was “going to stop the virus, not the country,” but then declined to rule out another lockdown:
Trump responded by stating that “everything [Biden] talks about closures, ”further noting that the most economically dire conditions have been brought about in states like New York, California, Pennsylvania and North Carolina by Democrats. “They are so closed and they are dying,” Trump urged.
“We have to open up our country,” the president continued, adding: “We are not going to have a country. You can’t keep this country closed. It is a massive country with a massive economy. You can not do this. People are losing their jobs. People are killing themselves. “
“The cure cannot be worse than the problem itself, and it is. And [Biden’s] will shut down the country, ”Trump proclaimed.
💬 “The cure cannot be worse than the problem itself” – Trump
💬 “We should be able to open safely” – Biden

Earlier in the debate, the president said, “we can’t lock ourselves in a basement like Joe does”:
