There oughta be a law against this stupid shit…..
Biden areas a mask …
He’s out campaigning …
Trump seldom did…
He’s in the hospital…
Jason Miller, a senior adviser to President Trump’s re-election campaign, argued on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday that Joe Biden has often “used the mask as a prop” and defended the campaign’s handling of the coronavirus even as Trump remained in the hospital with a COVID-19 diagnosis.
Why it matters: Trump has rarely worn a mask in public and often downplayed its usefulness. A large coronavirus outbreak in the White House has infected over a dozen people in Trump’s inner circle, including many who attended a Rose Garden celebration to announce Amy Coney Barrett as the nominee for Supreme Court Justice. Photos of the event show hardly anyone wearing a mask.
What he’s saying: “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos pushed Miller on why the president had mocked “former Vice President Joe Biden for wearing a mask and reporters who wore a mask” and why Trump had been so “cavalier” about mask-wearing at his rallies and elsewhere.
- “We take it seriously. It’s why we give everyone coming to rallies or to events, we give them a mask. We check their temperature,” Miller said.
- “You know, I would say that with regard to Joe Biden, I think too often he’s used the mask as a prop. A mask is very important, but even if he’s — he could be 20, 30 feet away from the nearest person and still have the mask on,” Miller added.
- “That’s not going to change anything that’s out there. But also we’ve seen with — with Joe Biden, I mean, we can’t all just stay in our basement for the rest of our lives.”
Of note: Even after close Trump aide Hope Hicks was diagnosed with COVID-19, Trump attended a New Jersey fundraiser despite knowing he’d been exposed to the virus….
