Conservative powerhouse and host of one of the most popular podcasts on the web Dan Bongino is vowing to defy any officials who pass a “mandatory mask” in his home county.

“You can take your mask mandate and shove it right up your ass,” Bongino said during Wednesday’s show.

His harsh comments were directed at Martin County, Florida commissioners who voted 5-0 to pass the ordinance after a lengthy debate where most residents staunchly opposed the mandate.

“They have no authority to do this,” the former policeman and Secret Service agent said. “These people are just fabricating new tyrannical powers drunk on their own power,” Bongino declared.

Bongino wants it to be known – he’s not an “anti-mask” person. He said that he will abide by the wishes of private businesses who call for masks in their spaces. What he has an issue with are crackpots in the government mandating yet another ‘thing’ that grown adults should all be able to figure out on their own.
