  • All he had to do was embrace the facemask

    Now that we are several months into the pandemic, one thing that has became very clear.... wearing facemasks has drastically slowed the spread and saved lives. Instead, trump wanted to portray an image of "toughness" that he felt wearing a mask would go against. Shutting down the economy might never had been necessary. Look at South Korea... they never had a full nationwide shutdown... but what they did do is wear facemasks. Every image of Korean would show everyone wearing facemasks... and the pandemic has pretty much died within their borders.

    If trump would have embraced the facemask, his supporters would have likewise done so, the economy would be fully roaring and trump would be a national hero.

    The MAGAts are willing to die for Dear Leader, whose re-election hopes hinge on the extent to which he can successfully deny, downplay and minimize the reality of the pandemic.

    The fruitcakes in the red hats have arrived at their Jonestown moment.

      It is yet another unforced error. Covering the nose/ mouth when there is a very contagious respiratory virus just seems common sense, if you do some basic research how the virus is spread.

      I don’t see the correlation b/n disease exposure risk and toughness. People make very strange associations

        If he was smart, and realized if that if he managed this crisis right he would win in landslide. Instead he made it about himself and refused to understand that this won't go away.

          Well it would if we quit doing so much testing. 🙄 Out of sight out of mind, dude.

            He was never going to win in a landslide.

              Not only has he refused to wear a mask, he's actively discouraged it and tried to hold huge rallies knowing that people would get sick.

              What a scumbag.

                  Wearing a mask to protect oneself -- has marginal value. But it does prevent you from infecting others. If person "A" wears a mask, he probably won't infect person "B" -- however, if both persons are masked, the chance of either one being infected goes way down.

                      The CDC and the WHO have said so many things it's hard to keep up these days. However, wearing a cloth mask does not stop the spread. It only helps when combined with other measures like social distancing and personal hygiene. IE, keeping hands washed with soap and water, and using at least a 66% alcohol content hand sanitizer. Even the medical grade masks worn in hospitals don't stop the virus from spreading from one person to another.

                      3 and a half months ago it was. "Everyone needs to stay home and social distance" "A mask doesn't stop the spread" Now all you hear is, "You're an asshole if you don't wear a mask and you don't care about other peoples lives."

                        Sounds like you may have some poor news sources. Faux News, perhaps?

                            CDC and the WHO are faux news now? What liberal source should I use?
