Republican Gov. Says No One Has a ‘Constitutional Right to Walk Around Without a Mask’

Republican Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said during a media briefing about the coronavirus that no one had the “constitutional right to walk around without a mask.”

The dubious claim was made by Hogan while he announced further coronavirus pandemic restrictions on Monday.

“It’s sort of like saying I have a constitutional right to drive drunk. I have a constitutional right to not wear a seat belt, or to yell fire in a crowded movie theater, or to not follow the speed limit,” Hogan said.

“We’re talking about a quarter of a million people dying already. You know, more than, you know, the Korean War, the Gulf War and the Vietnam War added together. Which part don’t you understand?” he asked rhetorically.

“There’s no constitutional right to walk around without a mask,” Hogan added, “this is, we did it in 1918, I don’t know why we can’t do it now. Wear the mask.”

Hogan’s comment was circulated on social media by those upset by his claim:

The Republican also made headlines when he scolded President Donald Trump on Sunday over a tweet criticizing his pandemic response.

“If you had done your job, America’s governors wouldn’t have been forced to fend for themselves to find tests in the middle of a pandemic, as we successfully did in Maryland,” tweeted Hogan.

“Stop golfing and concede,” he added.

  1. This governor is operating from total ignorance…oh wait, he may be a “Republican” but, this is evidence that he is the pocket of the Left. Consider the fruit…

    1. OWNED 100% BY COMMUNISTS. BOUGHT 9 MILLION WORTH OF SO CALLED DEFECTIVE MASKS FROM SOUTH KOREA AND THEN BOUGHT AN ADDITIONAL 2 MILLION FROM THE SAME COMPANY. SHEEP IN MARYLAND LET HIM AND HIS ADMINISTRATION TO RAPE ROB AND PILLAGE THEIR STATE.

  2. Hogan is very uninformed about the afectiveness of wearing a mask. He is either ignorant or one of the sheep promoting the globalist agenda. Be very concerned when you are loosing your rights. People who are sick should wear masks not healthy individuals.

  3. There is a LAW against drunk driving. There is no such law for masks.

    But using his mental argument, there is no “right” to healthcare, or unemployment benefits. Shall I continue?

  4. The masks don’t work & are unconstitutional. Government cannot SUSPEND our rights for any reason! He probably took China money too. We have to investigate every single government official and get these treasonous commies OUT of our government & out of our country!

  5. He drank the kool-aide
    Apparently gets his facts from the Chinese US news media and WHO ….
    Get the real facts and quit trying to manipulate people with your fear tactics. We are NOT going to submit to your communist regime. WE THE PEOPLE
    are taking back our country.

  6. It was the state’s legislators and, in some cases, people voting for laws against drunk driving, using seatbelts, and speed laws. Not a one man or woman totalitarian forcing the law on the population.

  7. From the words of Rudy Giuliani (Which I agree with):

    Does this man look like a Supreme Court Justice?

    Or even a constitutional expert?

    Has he read it?

    Does he understand it?
