President Donald Trump wore a mask today before the cameras as he went to visit military at Walter Reed Hospital.
Going to go out on a limb here and say President Trump looks pretty badass in a mask. https://t.co/BaxoizKrPN

So you would think that media was glad, right? Because they’d been trying to make an issue of the fact that the president hadn’t generally worn a mask in public although he has worn it behind the scenes, just not for cameras.
Since he gets tested all the time in the White House and doesn’t have it, wearing the mask really isn’t essential for him but he wore it anyway going into the hospital.
But not so much, liberal media still attacked him, because that’s what they do.
Here’s Jake Tappper’s offering:
Some day someone will do a study on how many lives might have been saved if this happened in February or March https://t.co/Y5iL9XFPC6

Incredible. Remember February and March was when Trump had already formed a task force, cut travel with China and Europe, declared a public health emergency. What were the Democrats doing? Calling cutting travel with China racist and encouraging people to go on the subway and hang out in crowds at parades in Chinatown. The first case in New York, the epicenter of the pandemic wasn’t until March 1.
Stop wearing face masks. #coronavirus

Here’s Joe Biden famously cursing out an autoworker, no mask, no social distancing, March 10.
In February and March, “experts” were saying wearing a mask was counterproductive and could lead to greater risk of personal infection.

But yeah, this is probably on Trump for not listening to Fauci or something. https://t.co/k5PTc9I0eS pic.twitter.com/KxkE8d84hx

Media would have ripped him apart if he wore one and said he was weak.
What was media like CNN doing?

Meanwhile where is the criticism for media like CNN cheering on BLM protests in the middle of the pandemic? Funny how there started being spikes in cases after that.
But for the final word on what media thinks of you, we give you the Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty.
Trump finally put on a mask. Dear nutty right-wing people: It’s okay now for you to do it too.

Objective journalist doesn’t even have any idea why this is wrong and how she just called half the country “nutty.” This is what they think of you, that you don’t have a mind of your own.
Meanwhile they can flip on a dime from saying “don’t wear a mask, it’s wrong” to “wear a mask or you’ll kill grandma” without any reflection or question, and without having any idea of the science, but acting as though they’re acting on science.
Remember when Karen Tumulty was supposed to be a straight edge reporter for Wash Post and became incensed at any hint or insinuation that she was biased one way or the other?

Meanwhile none of these folks and especially the folks at CNN where Chris Cuomo works seems to have the slightest concern about NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordering nursing homes to accept positive virus patients and how that likely led to thousands dying.
