Trump campaign emails supporters encouraging mask-wearing: 'We have nothing to lose'

Source: The Hill

President Trump’s campaign emailed supporters on Monday encouraging them to wear masks when social distancing is not possible as the president has shifted his tone on the practice over the past few weeks.

The reelection campaign’s email, which is signed by the president, requested Trump’s supporters don face coverings but acknowledged “there has been some confusion surrounding the usage of face masks.”

Trump says in the email that he doesn’t “love wearing them either,” but adds “they can possibly help us get back to our American way of life that so many of us rightfully cherished.”

“I recently tweeted that many view wearing a mask as a patriotic act, and there is no one more patriotic than me and you. Why not give it a shot!” the president said in Monday’s email.

NEW: Trump campaign emails supporters to wear masks... seemingly trying to appeal to mask skeptics, but also not fully endorsing them?:

"I don’t love wearing them either. Masks may be good, they may be just okay, or they may be great...My feeling is, we have nothing to lose..."

6. While he is certainly an asshole I think the Republicans in elected office at the state level are

bigger ones for actually joining him in calling it a fake virus and resisted and in some cases continue to resist taking action.

7. Their day is gonna come, too.

First the federal government, then the state governments. Exterminating Republicanism will kill the Trump virus in every state government.

9. Problem is you cannot exterminate it as its an idea and it will live on sadly.

We can though take some steps to make it more difficult for them in the future but those will take awhile to setup.

10. Nope. The expiration date is November 2020.

Once we take back the federal government, we are going after the Republican virus at the state level. Mark my words.

12. All that will occur on that date is their will be a shift and our guys will probably regain the

majority in the Senate and win some additional elections but the Republican party itself will continue to be a thorn in our side as they have millions of people supporting them.

13. Nope, I am 68 years old and have been disappointed probably a whole lot more

than you have been. I am finally optimistic that-

1) We take over the House / Senate, and Presidency this cycle.
2) Everyone realizes how precarious a Democracy is and
3) Knows which Party has sold out to the Trump/Putin worldview.

We'll be going after these same folks at the State and local level.

We will be understanding how Organized Crime can infiltrate our Democracy. Because we will investigate at the Federal level....to start. Republican's taking $60MM in bribes (Ohio Senate Majority Leader!) to fellate Big Oil/Nukes? Tip of the Iceberg. Lots of pols will be going to jail or going to a friendly (extraditionously-wise) country. Stay, that is serious prison time. Drop a dime? Most likely....no Profiles in Courage with this bunch. Any Democrats doing this same are gone, too.

It's going to be dealt with.

If Republicans try to overturn the popular vote this time, there will be significant prices to be paid. All bets are off as to what the next chapter will be. It won't be pretty, though.

17. Unfortunely I am not nearly as optimistic in thinking that 50+ million people that have been

openly supporting a bigoted, misogynistic political party lead by people willing to deal with our nations enemies in secret for assistance to win elections will suddenly wake up like that.
It could happen of course but I doubt it.
For example my youngest brother whom is one of them is still supporting Trump and my oldest brother is a borderline on Trump and might even support him if his wife and I were not around to try and slap some common sense into him now and then.

11. The idiot just figured out his opposition to wearing

those dreaded Democratic face masks were killing off his own voters.

Genius.

14. Maybe the transfusion has convinced them to take precautions

It seems like they've been treating him with IVs and maybe they're beginning to realize they can't continue with that subterfuge so now they'll lazily admit to using masks, yet still stubbornly sticking to their hoax claim.
