Maryland’s left-wing Governor Larry Hogan warned his subjects that they have no constitutional right to ignore his coronavirus mask mandates.
King Hogan insisted that people have no “constitutional right to walk around without a mask” in his kingdom.
“It’s sort of like saying I have a constitutional right to drive drunk. I have a constitutional right to not wear a seat belt, or to yell fire in a crowded movie theater, or to not follow the speed limit,” Hogan said, according to the Daily Caller.
“We’re talking about a quarter of a million people dying already. You know, more than, you know, the Korean War, the Gulf War and the Vietnam War added together. Which part don’t you understand?” he asked rhetorically.
“There’s no constitutional right to walk around without a mask,” Hogan added, “this is, we did it in 1918, I don’t know why we can’t do it now. Wear the mask.”

Actually, the gov. has it exactly backward. He has no constitutional right to order everyone to wear a mask. But, you know…
Hogan, who pretends to be a Republican, recently attacked the president and blamed him for the coronavirus scare.
Trump had slammed Hogan for wasting millions on flawed coronavirus tests from South Korea. And in reply, the leftist nitwit replied, “If you had done your job, America’s governors wouldn’t have been forced to fend for themselves to find tests in the middle of a pandemic, as we successfully did in Maryland. Stop golfing and concede.”

Of course, no president has any lawful role in making rules for the coronavirus for the nation. That really is up to the states.
