Rolling Stone reports:
As Trump toured the factory, which is producing N95 masks for the federal government, he and other officials wore safety glasses but did not wear masks.
In a clip from Reuters, at one point on the tour, workers blasted Guns N’ Roses’ cover of the James Bond theme song from Wings, “Live and Let Die.”
As Trump spoke to a worker that was wearing a mask, he could barely be heard over the din as he asked how many masks were made in a day and the worker’s response is hard to discern. Afterward, Trump gave a thumbs up to the camera.
They blasted “Live and Let Die” while Trump walked around a Honeywell plant today in Arizona without a mask. It’s hard to believe this clip is real. pic.twitter.com/M1dMe8KaMK

Without covering his own face, President Trump visited a Honeywell factory making N95 face masks in Arizona while Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Live and Let Die’ played in the background https://t.co/ighshLku9i pic.twitter.com/damCXpt9Oh

I’d like to see every Republican who embraces their “Live and Let Die” philosophy carry a signed card in their wallet saying that they refuse treatment for any and all medical conditions in order to preserve the US economy.

Whoever had the balls to play Live and Let Die while Trump toured the mask factory can deejay any party I ever have for the rest of my life. https://t.co/PQv6gT5p5F

Ignoring CDC requirements to the tune of “Live and Let Die” wasn’t the ideal photo opp for Trump’s first trip outside the White House in a month https://t.co/zuCjwfGhgu

I can think of no better metaphor for this presidency than Donald Trump not wearing a face mask to a face mask factory while the song “Live and Let Die” blares in the background. pic.twitter.com/mJzU1HW7HA

Trump not wearing mask but goggles at Honeywell facility. Other aides not wearing masks at all. Sign in facility says “face mask required in this area.” pic.twitter.com/Uq7Fr2ioeS
