"Boy, they’re really, really getting messaging wrong here"

Reiner told Erin Burnett, “I have enormous respect for CDC and their mission and for Dr. [Rochelle] Walensky in particular. But boy, they’re really, really getting messaging wrong here.”

“Do you really think that CDC has changed mask guidance for vaccinated adults, to use Dr. Walensky’s words, because of rarely a vaccinated person may transmit virus to an unvaccinated person? No,” he said. “They changed guidance to do the right thing, which was to force basically unvaccinated people to be vaccinated… and to mask up.”

Reiner argued that “they need to articulate the problem clearly” that tens of millions of Americans have not gotten the vaccine and are not masking up and “that is the force that is propagating this virus around the country.”
