LYNCHBURG, VA—In a press release to students returning to Liberty University in the middle of a massive pandemic, school president Jerry Falwell, Jr. reminded students to cough into their MAGA hats to prevent the risk of infection.
While professionals recommend an approved medical mask for those close to others in public, the school says MAGA hats are far better for this purpose. To facilitate this new anti-coronavirus strategy, the school distributed free MAGA hats to the student body.
"If you feel a cough coming on, pull off your MAGA hat and hack your lungs out into that," he wrote. "That's what it's there for. If we all do our part, we can stop this thing from spreading."
It's true that the hats have holes and mesh in them that probably aren't great for stopping particles that may contain the virus. But Falwell says he has personally prayed a hedge of protection over the hats to stop any stray viruses from getting through.
