Philanthropist and self-described “critical thinker” Steve Kirsch, who long has been involved in questioning the Washington ideology about COVID-19, that is, that masks help, has released a stunning story of mask love.
That is a passenger on a Delta flight, sitting next to him, in First Class, who refused his offer of $100,000 to take her mask off for the rest of the flight.
“No joke. This was after I explained they don’t work./ She works for a pharma company,” he said.

He explained, “And I pointed out that when she removed the mask for eating and drinking, she could be infected with one breath. So she had full disclosure.”
And, “She took off her mask as soon as the breakfast was served!!!! Because everyone knows you can’t get infected while you are eating!!”
A report at Not the Bee said, “And what a power move by the based rich dude, Steve Kirsch, who, as it turns out, is a somebody.”
The report noted online resources explain, “Steven Todd Kirsch is an American entrepreneur. He has started several companies and was one of two people who independently invented the optical mouse. Kirsch has been both a philanthropic supporter of medical research, and a promoter of misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines.”
Not the Bee pointed out he also founded Infoseek, and a “bunch of other companies,” and was reported in 2007 with a net worth of $230 million.
“Steve, if you see this, get in touch, my man! I’ll put a mask on real quick and then take it off for way less than what that lady refused!”
A multitude of legacy media outlets, led by the Mirror, chose to focus on one social media reaction from a commenter who suggested Kirsch was a “creep” for making the offer.
One anonymous individual said, “Women don’t want to make deals with creepy men on planes.”
