President Trump Says Some Mask Wearers Do So to Spite Him

Never has a medical issue been quite so political.

Coronavirus has been a political subject for weeks now, despite the fact that that the illness is very much a real life, life-and-death issue.  The virus doesn’t spread down any discriminatory lines, except when it comes to medical conditions and age, and COVID-19 certainly doesn’t care what your political affiliation is.

Yet, the response to COVID-19 has been polarizing, likely on account of the mainstream media’s race to split this nation down the middle, into sects that can be more easily intrigued by advertising.  Every issue in this nation has to have some political slant, otherwise CNN and Fox News won’t have any way to compete with one another.

And so it goes with coronavirus, with the fervor reaching all the way to the White House, where President Trump has indicated that the masks themselves may be some sort of political statement.

President Donald Trump said some Americans might wear face masks not as a way to prevent the spread of coronavirus but as a way to “signal disapproval of him.”

In a wide-ranging interview with The Wall Street Journal published Thursday, Trump also said a big issue he has with masks is that people fidget with them.

“They put their finger on the mask, and they take them off, and then they start touching their eyes and touching their nose and their mouth,” he told the Journal. “And then they don’t know how they caught it?”

President Trump has not been seen in public wearing a mask, nor is the Trump 2020 campaign requiring masks at this weekend’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
