MSNBC’s Joy Reid took on a medical professional, claiming she wears two masks while jogging despite being outdoors and vaccinated.
The host of “The ReidOut” sparred with pulmonologist Dr. Vin Gupta on Tuesday, claiming she wore her masks because of other people breathing around her.

“I am among the fully vaccinated, joined team Pfizer, and I did go jogging today in the park, and this is the mask that I wore with a doctor’s mask under it,” Reid said. “”And most of the people that I saw that were in the park —the park was packed— I would say 95% of the people still had masks on. Should people be freaking out that some people like myself who are vaccinated are still wearing masks outdoors? Should we do that?”
Gupta, however, said that was excessive, citing the low transmission rate outoors and the CDC’s updated guidance on masks.
“Definitely not,” Gupta responded.
According to FOX News, Reid became defensive and continued to talk about wearing a mask outside.
“The reason that I still do it is that people who are jogging are all breathing, and it’s like you’re in their backdraft, and it’s like if I’m going to run behind a lot of people I do it,” Reid said.
Needless to say, the comments earned the TV host some ridicule on social media.
“Well, the oxygen deprivation says a lot,” wrote Duane Patterson.
On Tuesday, the CDC stated that those who are fully vaccinated no longer need to wear a mask outdoors, unless in crowded settings and venues.
