Trump on Being an Anti-Masker and Refusing a Mask Mandate: ‘I Want People to Have a Certain Freedom’

Trump is into “freedoms” and that is why he won’t issue a national mask order. His freedom principle keeps him from wearing a mask – free to look uncaring. That is regrettable because we, too, are into freedoms. We want to be free from breathing in lethal viruses coughed up by the person standing two people in line behind us at the Piggly Wiggly, even when socially distanced. We are learning more and more than they’re classifying this as an airborne, not droplet, virus, and can thus hang for thirty minutes.

We think this is complete and utter BS. Trump is forcing schools open by using the power of money. That type of “order” isn’t about “freedom” to make choices. He is forcing (or trying to force) schools to open so as to create the illusion of a normal economy, one that isn’t ravaged by an epidemic, so that people should be out shopping, going to restaurants, and movies. We believe that Trump is afraid that every time someone sees as a mask on someone else, that person is reminded that we’re in the midst of the fight of our lives and therefore, spend accordingly and act accordingly.

This is where stupidity meets self-obsession with Trump. It is always about him and he cannot even do that right. Every other nation on earth – seemingly, with the exception of Russia and Brazil (see a link?) – has the virus dropping and is opening their economy. Those nations waited and listened to scientists.

We honestly wonder if this is the case, and if it is, the United States will have lost over 100,000 lives to the vanity of a president.

Who do you think is/was a better president?

Evidently they cause makeup problems, and the manly men in the MAGA crowd simply don’t like being told what to do. If a gun fought off the virus they probably wouldn’t want a nationwide issue on guns.

Above is the best answer yet. It is why we have DUI laws. Yes, it should be your freedom to drink eight beers and navigate your way home, but it is the family you kill while doing it that worries us.

This is the saddest thing. We’ll go over 150,000 deaths before next Saturday.

Yes, he does.

Exactly.

Peace, y’all
