Jen Psaki crumples when Fox News reporter grills her about face masks for vaccinated people

Gotta love it! No freakin' answer -- except basically to say because the CDC said so -- with zero data to support or justify the CDC's "determination". In other words, the new CDC guidelines is grounded in circular reasoning.

Here's how Psaki finally attempted to justify the new guidelines:

Doocy asked again, "But if the vaccines work, which this sign says that they do, then why do people who had the vaccine need to now wear masks the same as people who have not had it?"

This time Psaki essentially deflected to "because we said so."

"Because the public health leaders in our administration have made the determination, based on data, that that is a way to make sure they're protected, their loved ones are protected," she told Doocy. "And that's an extra step, given the transmissibility of the virus, that people that they're advising people to take." (emphasis mine)

What data!? Show us the data!

Of course, the article goes on to point out that the CDC itself elaborated a little bit more with it's "explanation".

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky provided a better explanation Tuesday as to why the CDC is yet again reversing course.

While she reaffirmed the overwhelming majority of COVID-19 cases are among the unvaccinated, she explained that studies show vaccinated people carry a significant viral load of COVID-19 variant in their nose and airway, enough to infect other people.

So non-medical masks are going to prohibit the transmission of this "viral overload"?
