1. If he'd have set an example by wearing a mask in February we wouldn't be in this mess

What a fucking idiot, his imagined need to keep his 'macho' image has cost us untold thousands of lives and trillions of dollars.

ALL he needed to do was admit that this pandemic is serious and that people should practice social distancing and wear a mask in public. THAT'S IT. That tiny little bit of leadership back in February would have prevented so much of this mess.

7. He also woulda started ramping up...

...if only he knew how important it would be today, the testing, the masks, the etc. Except, he hasnít and it isnít and they arenít.

But the lives. Many if not most all of 130,000 Americans would still be alive had Donald Trump acted like a President.

Thought if his mouth was covered itíd be better.

And of course his mask has to have the presidential seal because, you know, heís the king.

12. You're thinking. Stop it....

You can't understand Trumpmania logically. You just have to feel it....or...something like that.

I don't know how the faithful will deal with this revelation, but they have been known to handle half a dozen contradictory beliefs in their heads at one time without any noticeable damage. Cognitive dissonance is their super power.

10. This is the first time he, and his posse, are all wearing masks.

Of course, he says he always believed in masks, just not at certain times and certain places...like everywhere before this photo.

21. Fucking asshole.

If he had worn masks from the very beginning, many of his idiot followers would have worn them too.

Instead, he cost an untold number of lives and created massive headaches for innocent retail employees with his unwillingness to do the right thing.

Shitbag.

23. I can think of three reasons for him to wear a mask to visit troops

1. Not respecting our troops enough to wear a mask would make him look bad and hurt November chances.

2. If any of our troops became ill after his visit it will make him look bad and hurt November chances.

3. A recent study indicates correlation between non-compliance with social distancing/mask wearing and lowered cognitive abilities. Not wearing a mask makes him look bad.

27. But he's always said wearing a mask would make him look "weak"...

...and it probably does, but only because he's insisted for so long that he didn't need one.

26. Hopefully, the MAGAts will be disillusioned...

...because Their Hero wearing one can mean only one of two things:

1) he turned out to be a scared little snowflake just like the rest of them, or
2) the pandemic really is serious, and not just the "COVID cold" so many of them joke about.

In either case, they might start wondering if they have to worry, and whether he was putting them at risk all along.

He's wearing the mask because he has bad polling numbers. The mask makes him look like the Lone Pussy Grabber.

33. He's turned mask wearing into a divisive political issue.

His followers won't wear masks and that's Trump's personal fault. He'll get no credit from me for finally putting one on.

36. I hope this is the beginning of a new policy for his Administration . . .

If his wearing a mask, even in limited but very public instances, helps to get MAGAts into masks then we will all benefit.

And should the MAGAts turn against him over masks, as he evidently fears, then we'll all benefit from that as well.

I prefer we benefit medically, but I'll take a political benefit if that's what we get.

40. What's the most dangerous about all this...

is that the news media has now made a headline story out of a freakin stoopid jerk finally putting a mask on. It's like a mother who has to make over the first time her toddler makes a poopie in the toilet. "Yeah, look what you just did! Aren't you just a big boy now?"

F*** him and the news media making such a big deal over it. Besides, he was made to wear one here in Michigan, albeit only for a brief time, by our strong, female Governor Whitmer.

42. Control that news cycle

That is one thing the orange goo is good at and that's knowing the news cycles. What better way to change the narrative from the "Hey, I, the self proclaimed 'law and order' president just freed a convicted felon...oh and please ignore the fact that I'm ok with putin killing American troops".

He'll get his 15 minutes of oohs and ahs for his mask, but the mask can't cover that he is a completely loathsome human being.

43. We'll know if he's changed the next time we see him

There's a decent chance the Walter Reed commander informed the White House, "I don't give a fuck who he thinks he is, if he doesn't have a mask on when he arrives, he isn't getting in."

44. "spotted wearing a mask". Are they serious? BULLSHIT It was nothing more than a photo opp.

Once again the spin by the media is that this was an effort on his behalf of showing concern.

He doesn't give a shit about ANYTHING except what is good for his re-election.



edit to add...

Do you notice how he is looking STRAIGHT AT THE CAMERA? He's thinking, "DAMN! This will look good in a campaign ad".
