TED NUGENT Explains Why Masks Don’t Work

The “Motor-City Madman” Ted Nugent, who overcame an infection with COVID-19 four months ago, would like to take a minute to explain to you why masks don’t work. Ted took to his YouTube livestream yesterday (Monday, August 23), explaining (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “When someone tells you ‘wear a mask,’ and the overwhelming evidence from the overwhelming health professionals are they don’t work. You know your breath comes through the mask.

He alleges that Kovac did so after he became unhappy with Vext‘s increasingly vocal right-wing conspiracy theories and his sharing of those beliefs...
