[See NewsBusters for more.] MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell just can’t quit pandemic restrictions. On her Friday show on MSNBC, Mitchell declared that airplane mask mandates should remain, not because of any scientific reason, but because they make her feel more comfortable.

As part of a conversation with Dr. Vin Gupta, Mitchell expressed wonder and the idea that people with COVID might be able to get onboard a plane, “One of the things that surprised me because I travel internationally and you always have to get tested and show a negative test before you can even get a boarding pass, is that domestically you don't have to. You just have to be masked and so, people who have COVID could be on those airplanes, right?”
