Well now, that wasn’t so bad, was it Mr. President?
Donald Trump had infamously avoided wearing a surgical mask in public, despite pleas from his coronavirus pandemic response team that masks are an essential preventive measure against the killer virus.
Trump said he thought the masks looked bad for the president of the United States. How utterly, completely ridiculous!
He went to Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., today to visit with some of our wounded warriors. He wore the mask and allowed pictures of him to be snapped and distributed around the world.
Did anyone on Earth laugh out loud at the sight of Donald Trump wearing a mask? I don’t think so, even though there might have been some giggling at the idiocy expressed by Trump about his reluctance to wear a mask.
Masks serve a dual purpose. They protect the health of those who wear them. They also protect those who stand near the person wearing the mask.
So, it’s not about whether someone looks good wearing a mask. It’s about protecting people’s health and possibly saving their lives.
The president needs to lead in that effort and ditch that moronic notion that we have this virus “under control.” We don’t. Donald Trump needs to wear a mask whenever he ventures into public view.
