Media Seem Rather Unhinged Over Trump Finally Wearing A Mask

Don’t forget, the CDC guidance on wearing  a mask prior to May 30th was that people didn’t need to and should not wear a face mask unless they were actually sick (via Twitchy)

He wore a mask!

President Trump wore a mask in public for the first time Saturday, more than three months after public health officials from his own administration recommended that all Americans cover their face when social distancing was not possible. (snip)

For months, public health officials and several Republican lawmakers have urged Trump to model good public health practices by wearing a mask in public, even though he is in a unique situation because he is regularly tested for coronavirus. Trump resisted, and the concept of mask-wearing became part of the country’s partisan political battles as the coronavirus spread rapidly in America and other countries gained control of the pandemic.

Can you guess what’s missing from the article? Any actual names of those public health officials. None. Zip. Nada. The only Republican mentioned is

“Unfortunately this simple lifesaving practice has become part of a political debate that says: If you’re for Trump, you don’t wear a mask. If you’re against Trump, you do,” Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said last month during a Senate hearing. “That is why I have suggested the president should occasionally wear a mask even though there are not many occasions when it is necessary for him to do so. The president has millions of admirers. They would follow his lead.”

Perhaps the Washington Post should read the Washington Post

Huh. How about that? The full guidance was changed May 30. Prior to that, in early April, they recommended the use of a “non-medical, cloth mask” when it is essential to be in public places, because some people could be asymptomatic and not know it so a cloth covering could keep these people who are sick from spreading it. Trump is getting tested all the time, so, he doesn’t have it, so, he won’t be asymptomatic.

Whoops! Lots of Democrats and medical professionals were telling people to not wear masks unless they were actually sick. No one really knew about the asymptomatic thing, certainly not helped by China and WHO covering things up. Why did Nancy Pelosi not require House committee members to wear a mask in committee till June 17th? She hasn’t been wearing one all that long, and many of them were just the scarves she has long worn (to hide the Botox effects on her neck) turned into bandana style coverings.

Further, Trump has left it up to the states and municipalities to decide on any mandates, as it should be. Los Federales should not be mandating. Now, just imagine if Trump mandates the wearing of masks: the same media and Dems would call him a dictator.

Further further, if Trump had worn a face mask early, say, back in February or March, there would have been pushback and derision from the media and elected Democrats, saying he was crazy, he was fear-mongering, creating panic, etc. You know how this would have gone. And then Democrats would utterly refuse to wear one.
