Donald Trump wore a face mask in public for the first time when he visited Walter Reed Medical Center, where he met with wounded troops and medical staff. “You’re in a hospital setting, I think it’s a very appropriate thing, the stable genius said. No shit, Sherlock!
The commander-in-chief had defiantly refused to don a mask in public throughout the coronavirus pandemic, that’s akin to a firefighter refusing to put on his flame-resistant uniform whenever he responds to a call.
A firefighter who responds to a raging fire clad in jeans and a polo shirt would be ridiculed by onlookers and fired by the Fire Department, but Trump has been lauded by his fanatical base for refusing to wear a face covering in a raging pandemic.
It should be noted that Trump wore a mask in public for the first time only after almost every other prominent Republican has urged citizens to wear a mask and only after over three million Americans have been infected by the virus, and over 130,000 have died from the disease.
Trump’s fancy mask was navy blue bearing the presidential seal in gold, maybe if someone designs a mask bearing the presidential seal in gold and Trump’s name in gold, he might wear it every time he appears in public.
Certainly he needs to set an example for his followers, because they won’t wear a mask until their messiah consistently wears one in public.
