After Dr. Anthony Fauci came out and said Monday morning that it’s “common sense” that wearing two masks “likely would be more effective” than just a single one, CNBC’s Contessa Brewer, citing researchers, claimed that people should wear three masks.

While appearing on CNBC’s “The News with Shepard Smith” Monday evening, Brewer suggested that people should wear three masks to help protect themselves from those who aren’t wearing masks properly or at all.

“The experts keep telling us that wearing masks is really about protecting others from ourselves in the event that we are contagious, but you know if other people aren’t wearing their masks or they’re wearing them improperly, we need to protect ourselves,” said Brewer.

“So experts say you can double up with a tight weave fabric mask for added protection,” she said while putting on two masks, then going on to cite researchers from Virginia Tech who said that three masks is more effective than two.

“Now, Virginia Tech researchers found that doubling up these cloth masks increases the efficiency from 50% to 75%,” Brewer continued. “A three-layer mask could block up to 90% of the particles.”

At the end of the segment, after Brewer emphasized that one’s mask needs to fit on properly to work, host Shepard Smith added that people should also get rid of facial hair due to it possibly getting in the way of properly wearing a face mask.

In an article published last week, CBS4 Medical Editor Dr. Dave Hnida told Summit News that “three masks may be going too far since that could interfere with the ability to breathe,” while saying that two masks is “something you may want to consider” doing.

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child’s father

Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from “White guilt.” She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child’s father to help “produce live events” and other “creative services.”

Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services. Daily Mail wrote that “leaders have attempted to justify” the expenses to her brother by saying the “foundation’s protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations.”

It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.

Cullors also reportedly “reimbursed BLM $73,523 for a charter flight for foundation-related travel, which the organization says she took in 2021 out of concern for COVID-19 and security threats.”

Cullors resigned last year from the organization due to criticism of her finances, such as purchasing multiple homes for herself that cost millions of dollars combined. She also admitted the charity was paying for “employment” of her sister, mother, and brother.

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc revealed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, it ended the fiscal year with nearly $42 million in net assets. “The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations amid racial justice protests in 2020” adds Daily Mail.
