[See NewsBusters for more.] “Scary,” “unqualified,” and “Florida.” Those were just some of the terms used by MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell and Dr. Peter Hotez on Tuesday as they reacted to the airplane mask mandate being struck down by a federal Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle.

After Mitchell noted the White House will still be requiring masks on Air Force One, Hotez expressed dismay that the CDC cannot simply do whatever it wants, “The idea that some random federal judge in Florida would overturn the Centers for Disease Control is also a scary precedent to set. Because what—what—comes next in terms of overriding other public health measures?”
