Huh. It only took a majority of Red States showing massive spikes in coronavirus to get Republicans to switch up their messaging! Funny how that works!
Today, it was reported that President Trump is ditching plans to hold a rally in Alabama next weekend after Alabama’s Governor Kay Ivey announced a state order Tuesday encouraging face coverings in public and prohibiting non-work-related gatherings of any size where social distancing cannot be maintained … making a massive rally unfeasible.
Says TMZ: The scrapped rally is just the latest sign some of the President’s allies are getting serious about COVID-19 concerns — even if he isn’t yet.
Donald Trump Jr. now says “I don’t think it’s too complicated to wear a mask or wash your hands and follow basic hygiene protocols.” Mitch McConnell finally said wearing a mask can’t be stigmatized, and wearing face coverings in public are part of American’s new routine in the pandemic.
And here’s the sudden about-face from FOX news host Sean Hannity.
Oh, wait… what? Did you say wear a mask? NOW? THREE MONTHS LATER? Had you only known…— jay arnold 🎬 (@jadedcreative) June 30, 2020
Sooooo…. How long do you think it will be before Trump wears a mask… and is hailed by the right for being a COVID-19 hero? I predict a month before the election….
