President Trump Wednesday responded to all the crap he is taking for not wearing a mask, saying they are a good idea and that he uses them himself.
Trump told Fox News Business:
I’m all for masks. I think masks are good. If I were in a group of people and I was close, I would. I have. People have seen me wearing one if I’m in a group of people where we’re not 10 feet away. But usually, I’m not in that position and everyone’s tested because I’m the president and they get tested before they see me, if I were in a tight situation with people, I would, absolutely.
I had a mask on, I sort of liked the way I looked. I thought it was okay. It was a dark, black mask, and I thought it looked okay. It looked like the Lone Ranger.
Trump is right not to be parading around with a mask, though. He thinks it looks weak on a leader, and it does. He certainly could avoid denigrating the use of them, as he has, and could do more to promote them. But I don’t think Churchill or Caeser would have walked around with an N95 over their face.
