Carlson took on all of these during his monologue.
“What is the downside of wearing masks?” the Fox News host asked rhetorically. “There’s got to be a downside. What is it? And above all, why make children wear masks? What’s the point of that?

Well, because the teacher’s unions demanded it. But beyond that, very few people asked. Instead, we are treated to a daily insensate drumbeat from the media: “Wear a mask! Wear a mask! Wear a mask! All good people wear masks!”
