The Washington Post reports:
Hours after President Trump was spotted Monday partaking in public Memorial Day remembrances without a face mask, he hopped on Twitter to retweet a Fox News commentator criticizing former vice president Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, for wearing one.
“This might help explain why Trump doesn’t like to wear a mask in public,” Brit Hume, Fox News’s senior political analyst, tweeted Monday evening, sharing a picture of Biden at a Delaware veterans memorial earlier that day.
In the photo, which documents Biden’s first public appearance since mid-March, most of the 77-year-old’s face is obscured by a black mask and a pair of Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses.

It’s not about looking good, it’s about setting a good example which used to be something presidents did

I don’t see a problem so, please, spell it out if you’re trying to make a point.

He looks like someone who doesn’t want to catch or spread the lethal disease that is still classified as a pandemic and for which there is no cure. Machismo, sadly, does not ward it off.

You are garbage
Delete this shitty, inhumane tweet trying to convince folks not to wear masks during a fucking *global pandemic*, post an apology to the nation’s first responders and COVID-19 dead, wait an hour, then delete your account and retire from public life you sad goblin

Looks like @brithume has a problem with leadership and Biden demonstrating for Americans how to stay safe. Brit, maybe you have not lost anyone you love or maybe you have nobody to love, but as someone who has lost people he loves I am thankful that @JoeBiden is doing this.

Looks like a responsible, respectful, compassionate leader.
