  1. Trump: “Sure, I could have worn a mask, but as the patron saint of petulant man-babies around the world, I didn’t want to give the press the satisfaction of seeing me do the right thing for once. Phuck that!!!”

    A cruel despot in the eyes of the world…

  3. Insecure little Donnie is afraid wearing a mask in public will hurt his reputation, unlike the lies and crimes he has been impeached for.

  4. I think it‘s pretty obvious: Trump is a no-brainer 😉

    This is typical of the republican mentality : wearing a mask is being weak. They do not care about science…they only care about their dear leader’s propaganda

      Republicans never have any respect for Americans lives. They, with their “Leader and king” Donald Trump pursue the objective of killing as more Americans as possible specially the elderly population in order to save millions of dollars been paid for their retirement and medical plans,etc

    Trump still thinks he stands above the law. Dumb.

    There is one thing Trump excels at, and he’s absolutely brilliant at it. Bragging.

  13. unfortunately lies will come through a mask

    Trump acts like a twelve-year-old girl who refuses to wear her glasses out in public because she thinks they make her look ugly.

    Any woman who can withstand four crises at once — economic, medical, aquatic, and political — without losing her mind is presidential material.

  16. When you have access to the best of the best in medical treatment, I guess you can flaunt it

    Trump: ‘I’ve been robbing people for over 50 years without a mask so why wear one now?” SAD!
