It shouldn’t even be an issue but for some wearing a face mask in public has become political, and now that Gov. Jay Inslee has made it mandatory and President Trump won’t wear one, all the “lib” haters will be showing their “patriotism” by refusing to wear one, as if someone cares about their politics.
Some of this is merely our young feeling invincible and some are just plain too lazy or ignorant. More just don’t care and some repeat the social media garbage that mask wearing is dangerous, while every health care professional on this planet says that wearing masks helps contain the spread and saves lives. CNBC says that Trump told an interviewer that “some people might wear masks to signal disapproval of him.” This from the president who pooh-poohed the virus and told us it would “disappear as if by magic.”
This is badly failed leadership on all fronts, both domestic and foreign from the president of the United States and it is literally killing Americans. Here we are, with a worst in the world, nearly 130,000 deaths and over 2.5 million Covid cases, and some medical experts saying that the virus could affect up to half of us while Trump frets about the higher case count because it makes him look bad and wants to slow the testing down. That will really slow the death rate down, won’t it Mr. President?
Hopefully the end of Trumpism will be the beginning of something much better than we are right now.
