There’s No Such Thing as a Federal Mask-Wearing Mandate

David Harsanyi, National Review

Have any reporters every wondered which federal agency would be tasked with forcing Nevadans or Texans to wear masks in public? Mask wearing has become just another stupid front in our partisan war. The fact is that whenever Donald Trump fails to engage the federal government in ways that Democrats demand, they claim he is negligent; and whenever he uses the federal government in ways they oppose, they rediscover the Tenth Amendment and accuse him of being a dictator. Trump could no more declare a no-mask mandate than Biden could force the entire country to wear masks. It’s all just political theater.
