‘Daily Show’ host Trevor Noah slams CDC over ‘incoherent’ messaging surrounding masks
Trevor Noah took a shot at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) over what he called its “incoherent” messaging surrounding mask guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic.
On Tuesday, the CDC updated its coronavirus mask guidance, now saying fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask in outdoor settings as long as they are not in a large crowd. But the CDC in its guidance also says there are certain outdoor situations where unvaccinated individuals can also go without a mask.
“The Daily Show” host dedicated time out of his show Tuesday to comment on the situation, initially rejoicing in the brief return to normalcy that the new mask guidelines offer Americans. “Guys, I’m so happy, you know why? Because now we won’t have to give each other dirty looks on the street just for wearing or not wearing masks,” Noah joked at the top of the segment. “You know? Now we can go back to the good old days of giving each other dirty looks because of racism, classism, sexism, ableism, homophobia and those people wearing Adidas pants with Nike shoes.”
