Following President Biden’s advice to continue to wear masks despite being vaccinated, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) appeared on the Brian Kilmeade show Thursday to encourage vaccinated people to disregard his advice. Both Cotton and Biden have been full vaccinated for months.
Previously Biden said that wearing a mask even after receiving the vaccine is “a patriotic responsibility, for God sake.” But Cotton says this is sending a terrible message.
“Americans have long disregarded the advice of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) when it comes to things like eating steaks, eating hamburgers and drinking beers,” Cotton said. “I think they should disregard this obviously politicized advice.”
Even though he’s vaccinated himself, Cotton is against “vaccine passports” and political campaigns for vaccination.

State officials, CDC investigating monkeypox case in Florida
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”
Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”
Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
