Ford policy and Michigan law require face masks be worn inside public spaces.

Bill Ford asks him to wear a mask. Says he did but removed it in front of the press

Setting a good example for the rest of us.

Maybe he thinks a mask makes him look less manly.

I get the need to beat on DJT. I'm wondering about all the times you also called out cuomo for not wearing a mask at his press conferences?

should our news anchors also wear them? they're in public space. showing a lack of regard for following rules...

or is this just about finding a reason to hate on DJT?

Yea he’s in a great deal of danger of getting covid standing at a microphone In front of the press whose probably 20 feet away.......
It is about setting an example. How many people will use Trump as a reason not to wear a mask when they should.

However, the WHO still doesn't recommend face masks except when you are sick. Maybe he is just following their advice instead of the CDC. Why follow the advice of his own experts when he can rely on the WHO.
Would you follow CDC, botched test kits, don’t wear a mask do wear a mask, virus lives for days on surfaces ie keep kids out of parks, to oh oops we now know covid is not transmitted by contact on surfaces? And the only good thing about The Who is Babba O Reilly .

Whatever. It is because you are in full on hate mode against Trump. If he'd do EVERYTHING you think would be right in your eyes, you'd still hate him. Trump knows this, so why even try to please people like you who will never be pleased.

Why is it that you hate Trump so much, again, xtra?

You mean like Obama when he hid his smoking and the press never covered it?

You can see Trump not wearing a mask at least. You did get hear Michelle Obama giving lectures on health to everybody though. :)
You make the point better than I ever could and I thank you for doing so. Obama did not want to set a bad example. He knew, as president, that people would be influenced so he did not wish to smoke in public. Likewise, all Presidents would have complied with Ford’s policy.....but not Trump
Another whatever. What a load of caca de la vaca. Obama said he was quitting smoking. So instead of coming clean and saying it is hard as hell to stop smoking, he hid it and lied about it. It is a microcosm of how he operated.

Just what was it he was doing in Vegas on the night of Bengazi, learnin? I missed that explanation, and since you are explaining things for the former leader of the free world.........

Obama wasn't in Vegas on the night of the attack in Benghazi, he left Washington at 2:20 p.m. THE NEXT DAY for a fundraiser in Las Vegas.

If you're going to use trash innuendo tactics at least make a passing effort to get it right.

I would be fine if Trump does not wear a mask when speaking at a microphone to reporters or addressing a crowd. It is my opinion, he should wear a mask when walking around and conversing with people in a facility where masks are required, he has been asked by Bill Ford to wear a mask and every other person has a mask on. It is my opinion and I have explained why I think it is important for the President to set an example. If you do not agree, that is your opinion.

Regarding Cuomo.
He is New Yorks mayor and I think he talks way too much.

However, Cuomo did make wearing masks in public places a New York requirement on April 15. And took time to explain why it is important for those in New York state to do that. And NY case counts and deaths have been on a significant trend since although much of that must be attributed to shelter at home and social distancing.


April 15
Anyone outside in public in New York will be required to wear a mask or some kind of face covering under a new executive order from Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).
Cuomo on Wednesday said the order will apply only in situations where you can't be physically distant from other people, like riding public transit.

But you still don't know where he was, do you? It seems to be stop secret. Why wasn't he in the situation room where he was with Bin Ladin was killed? He is the guy that allows the military to cross borders. what was he doing that kept him from being involved? Feel free to answer any of those questions.

Don't you get tired of being horribly, horribly wrong with each and every one of your right-wing conspiracy theories?

1. Was I with President Obama on the night of the Benghazi attack....no.
2. Was he in the situation room when the attack occurred like he was for the Bin Laden raid....probably not, because it wasn't a PLANNED U.S. OPERATION
3. He was involved. The REPUBLICAN led committees in both the House and Senate concluded so.

Within 90 minutes of the Sept. 11, 2012, surprise attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound that killed Ambassador J.  Christopher Stevens and an aide, the report tells us, Obama had told his secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to do everything possible, implicitly including using military force, to protect Americans.

These were “very clear directions,” according to Peter Roskam (R-Ill.), one of Obama’s harshest critics on the panel.

8 years later and you’re still correcting spot on Benghazi. Incredible how this merry-go-round never stops.
