"The View" co-host Joy Behar was caught sans mask after vehemently claiming that she would remain masked even if health officials eased their social distancing guidelines.
Behar told co-hosts that she didn't feel safe in public and would continue masking up despite reports that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was considering easing up on mask restrictions.
According to photographs obtained by Libby Emmons of the Post Millennial, Behar appears to feel perfectly safe unmasking in public with her friends at a restaurant.
Emmons reported that Behar also walked out of the restaurant without a mask even as her companions masked up, as per CDC guidelines.
The women of "The View" were commenting on the CDC reviewing mask guidelines in the light of coronavirus cases plummeting when Behar said she listens to voices in her head.
"Personally, I listen to the little voice in my head that doesn't really follow a hundred percent what they tell me because they keep changing it," she said.
"So like, a very short time ago they were saying put the N95 masks on, make sure it's on, and now they're saying you don't have to wear them anymore," she explained helpfully. "So if I go on the subway, if I go in a bus, if I go into the theater, if I go into, where else would I go? A crowded place, I would wear a mask, and I might do that indefinitely."
While CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said the CDC may lessen mask restrictions, Dr. Anthony Fauci was far more cautious. Fauci said that it would be risky to ease up on mask restrictions for children and cautioned that there's always the chance of a new variant emerging.
Here's the video of Behar's comments:
