Trump Finally Tweets That People Should Be Wearing Masks and Twitter Explodes, ‘Four Months Too Late!’

Well, it’s about time.

Trump has finally tweeted that people should be wearing masks. He didn’t explicitly order it, but still, this is a good move.

Trump’s tweet refers to Covid-19 as the “Invisible China Virus” – a name for the disease he has frequently been criticized for using – includes a black-and-white photo of him wearing a mask.

Trump tweeted, “We are United in our effort to defeat the Invisible China Virus, and many people say that it is Patriotic to wear a face mask when you can’t socially distance. There is nobody more Patriotic than me, your favorite President!”

Now, how hard was that??

Imagine if Trump had done this back in March??

The tweet came after the president largely refused for months to wear a face covering in public, but not long after he wore a mask to Walter Reed military hospital.

More than 140,000 people have died due to coronavirus in the United States, according to a Johns Hopkins University tally.

Twitter had some thoughts:
