Boner Candidate #1: THE MASKED SINGER; PART OF A CORONAVIRUS PLOT

A conservative activist is bizarrely speculating that the celebrity song show “The Masked Singer” could be a “demonic” effort to force the American public to wear face masks during the coronavirus pandemic. DeAnna Lorraine, a political correspondent for right-wing outlet Newsmax, on Friday offered the conspiracy-themed tweet about a show in which singing celebs don head-to-toe crazy costumes, including full-face coverings. “I find it very interesting how the show ‘Masked Singer’ hit America in January 2019, a little bit over a year before they started forcing us all into masks,” she tweeted. “It’s almost like they were beginning to condition the public that masks were “normal” and ‘cool’. The media is demonic.” Mask-wearing did not become a widespread behavior in the U.S. until the COVID-19 crisis hit this spring. The show itself is based on a South Korean program, “The King of Mask Singer,” that debuted in 2015. Lorraine, who was defeated in a Republican primary in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s California district in 2020 but still uses the handle “@DeAnna4Congress” on her Twitter bio, was skewered on social media for the wild theory.

If it was too much longer, we wouldn’t be here,” Qualls said. DeSantis’s announcement Friday allowed all bars and restaurants to reopen effectively immediately — and prevented local municipalities from implementing restrictions that would force them to operate at less than half-capacity unless it can be justified for health or economic reasons. “We’re not closing anything going forward,” DeSantis said. The governor closed bars and nightclubs on St. Patrick’s Day due to outbreaks across the state.
