Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) on Thursday blasted the politicization of protective face masks that has occurred during the coronavirus pandemic.

“The politicization around masks, I think history is going to write as one of the worst things that’s happened to this country,” Walz said at a press conference, according to WCCO-TV.

“I think it cost lives,” he said of the pushback against masks by those who view them as a political statement. “I think it’s stupid. It’s the least intrusive thing we can do.”
