Maher: Making Kids Wear Masks ‘Is Unnecessary and Horrible,’ and Hurts ‘Their Education, Their Sanity, and Their Social Skills’

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher said that President Joe Biden’s polling on his handling of the coronavirus pandemic has gone south, and it’s time for the United States to “announce we’re going back to something more like normal,” the same way other countries have. And that the return to normal should begin with “recognizing that what we’re doing to kids is unnecessary and horrible,” and that forcing children to wear masks, despite their low risk from coronavirus is robbing them of their “education, their sanity, and their social skills.”

During his closing monologue on the inaccurate statements of the medical establishment on the virus, Maher stated, “President Biden’s handling of the pandemic started off polling pretty well, but now a majority disapprove. It’s time to do what a growing list of countries have done and announce we’re going back to something more like normal, beginning with recognizing that what we’re doing to kids is unnecessary and horrible, and I don’t even like kids. But making kids, who have a COVID survivability rate of 99.98%, mask up like bandits? Unfortunately, the thing that’s getting stolen is their education, their sanity, and their social skills.”
