Schwarzenegger: Anyone making coronavirus masks a 'political issue is an absolute moron'

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) on Thursday lauded new California measures requiring residents to wear masks outside of their homes, saying that "Anyone making it a political issue is an absolute moron who can't read."

The measures were released by the state health department Thursday as the state gradually reopens businesses amid the coronavirus pandemic. It calls for residents to wear face coverings when they are inside or in line to enter a public space, in addition to other settings.

"This is 100% the right move," Schwarzenegger tweeted. "This will help us beat this terrible virus. The science is unanimous - if we all wear masks, we slow down the spread and can reopen safely. It's not a political issue. Anyone making it a political issue is an absolute moron who can't read."

Schwarzenegger also shared guidance from U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams calling for people to wear a cloth face covering when "you're in public & it's difficult to keep a distance," as well as thorough hand washing and other measures.

California Gov. Newsom (D) in a Thursday statement said that "Science shows that face coverings and masks work."
