Just watch the clip.

Don’t read anymore before you watch it, unless you’re not planning on watching it for some very specific reason.
If you didn’t watch the clip, here’s the thing: the words “mask debate” sound like “masturbate.”
Is this on purpose? They were saying it over and over again, and “the great mask debate” is not an intuitive phrase. It appears to have been seeded on purpose.
Perhaps it’s subliminal programming: modern people really love to masturbate, and the media wants masks to be associated in their subconscious minds with this thing that they like.
I’m only half-joking here. I think that explanation probably makes more sense than the idea that this awkward phrase was seeded and it is just a coincidence that when you say these two words together, they sound like another word.
