Podcaster Joe Rogan lambasted Democrats in a December podcast with American surfer Shane Dorian. While discussing the environmental damage disposable masks cause, Rogan opined, "Masks are like the Democrats' MAGA hat."
"You wear it to make people feel comfortable," Rogan said about masks in a late-December edition of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast.
"I know it's illogical, and I'm fine wearing it if it relaxes people and makes them feel better. But if people want to argue that they do something, it just doesn't make any sense, man. It doesn't make any sense," Rogan added.
"I don't even know if they work," Rogan continued in the podcast episode. "I don't think they do. I mean maybe they stop spittle from getting into someone. If you can get your finger in the side of it, and air is coming out."
"I just feel like it's one of those things where we accepted early on," Rogan said, noting the supposed ineffectiveness of masks.
"And now we're just pretending it's somehow or another protective. But at the end of the day, it's really just a piece of paper over your mouth and you're breathing perfectly through it, so like how does that work?" he asked
The discussion on disposable masks began when Dorian and Rogan discovered that 1.6 billion disposable masks entered the ocean in 2020 and will take 450 years to biodegrade, according to Visual Capitalist's reporting.
