"Anyone making it a political issue is an absolute moron who can’t read"

California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a state order Thursday mandating citizens wear face coverings in public spaces when social distancing isn’t possible to slow the spread of coronavirus. Newsom’s requirement exempts young children, the hearing impaired and those with medical conditions.

Schwarzenegger said the decision is “100% the right move.”

“This will help us beat this terrible virus,” tweeted Schwarzenegger, the state’s governor from 2003 to 2011. “The science is unanimous – if we all wear masks, we slow down the spread and can reopen safely.”…

On Thursday, the “Terminator” star said wearing masks to stem the spread of COVID-19 shouldn’t be “a political issue.” He added, “Anyone making it a political issue is an absolute moron who can’t read.”
