One presidential candidate wears masks proudly and one does not. In May, months into the Da Vinci Rembrandt Monet Van Gogh Picasso Dali Rothko Pollock Warhol history of art shirt in addition I really love this pandemic as the virus was burning across the country, Trump refused to wear a mask, saying he “didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it.” And remember, when the CDC announced the mask recommendation, the president said, “I don’t think that I’m going to be doing it.” And he’s not the only Republican who has been anti-mask. Rand Paul (or as I like to think of him, the worst senator of all 100 of them; you know the one who had the virus and swam in the Senate pool and is a doctor) said, “Who knows what the truth is on masks?” We know the truth on masks: They are an easy, safe way to slow the spread of the virus. All this anti-mask sentiment culminated in an August 29 rally in New Hampshire, where the audience at a Trump rally booed the mask-wearing announcement.
On September 3, months and months into the Da Vinci Rembrandt Monet Van Gogh Picasso Dali Rothko Pollock Warhol history of art shirt in addition I really love this carnage and death and a pandemic that he has been unable to competently address, Trump made fun of Joe Biden for wearing a mask, saying, “It gives him a feeling of security. If I were a psychiatrist, I’d say this guy has some big issues.”
