[See NewsBusters for more.] It didn't take long for MSNBC to start attacking new Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin on Monday as Stephanie Ruhle Reports guest host Chris Jansing, correspondent Heidi Przybyla, and Dr. Kavita Patel all condemned Youngkin's executive order that lifted mask mandates for schools.
Jansing set the stage for Przybyla by trying to tie the order to a raise in hospitalizations, "So as we're talking about Omicron pushing hospitals, Heidi, we’ve got, what, more than two dozen states including Maryland and Virginia who are really having trouble keeping up with the patient load, and there's also a controversy involving an executive order by the just-sworn in Virginia governor? Tell us about that."
