"I've never been against masks"

Okay...

"but I do believe they have a time and a place,

Oh so you're sometimes against masks.
While never being against masks.

"... they have a time and a place,"

Yeah, some other time and any other place, according to Trump. His campaign is built on images... and a legit one of him wearing a mask would goose the base. Not that they would desert him.

Just like concubines, according to Tor.

So iow he "respects" the wounded soldiers enough to be considerate of them.
That says a lot for those he doesn't respect enough to wear a mask for
Most likely someone told him he should be seen being respectful of them

It's CNN, I kind of doubt they'd post a fake photo as great as this one.

The truth about the epidemics is slowly sinking in to his pea brain. He sees defeat in denial. I expect more mask wearing in public going forward.

Trump is a primitive person, but his instincts have finally seen that denial of the virus is a LOSER.

He wants to win.

I am so looking forward to gnashing of teeth, and tearing of clothes, from the very confused tRumptardians :)

"But Dear Leader said it was fake news! Why is Dear Leader wearing a mask?"

... I think it's a great thing to wear a mask. I've never been against mask ...

Yes, he has been against masks. Pres Trump prevaricates, and this statements is just another of his prevarications.

When he calls out someone during an official White House press conference for wearing a mask, and demeans that person for being "politically correct" in wanting to wear a mask, Pres Trump is indeed against masks.

But to me the bottom line is...

Americans are dying. Americans are becoming burdened with long-term illnesses. And Pres Trump is focusing upon his political re-election.

That is so wrong.

Being forced to wear a mask is toe-tally-terror-tism.

Pretty sad when it's BREAKING NEWS! that our own President is finally following the CDC guidelines and setting an example for the nation.

But still.

Gratz on Stable Genuis Trumpy for doing something right!

He refuses to wear a mask because E. Jean Carroll and others are requesting DNA samples for their rape/harassment claims and Trump is afraid someone may nab his and provide it to his victims.

You can bet that mask hit the incinerator after the photo op.

Winning!

More like bizarro winning...

Trump wore a mask today because sometime next they will be forced to announce Herman Cain is dead

They hope to create the illusion trump was never an antimasker

They are estimating that within 72 hours of being seen wearing a mask by his faithful, the trumpers will have forgotten he has not been wearing one all along
It's at this time they will start beating everyone with memes that it's all soros's doing

Did Trump's mask have a 5G antenna in it?
That's what the metal strip is.
You woke guys know that, right?

His staff are praising him the same way you'd praise a small child for using a toilet for the first time.

Trump's photo op will have no effect on his cult. They will simply see this as wearing a mask is only necessary when visiting a hospital. Trump can't do the right thing even when he's forced to do the right thing. His followers have already forgotten about it, if they ever even saw or cared in the first place.

What a missed opportunity. He could have done a press conference where he donned a patriotic-themed mask and people would have loved it. This one hospital visit is the very least his huge ego would allow.

Yes, but from Trump's point of view, his "patriotic-themed mask" would be patterned after the 'Stars & Bars'.

Mask wearing ridicule is why he usually doesn't wear one.
Seems he was right after all.

Just getting over it is always too much to ask of Donald Trump.

Really fester? The tRumptard is being ridiculed (in this particular instance) because of the obvious "please re-elect me I'm not a complete buffoon I'm wearing a mask see I actually care" -------.

He got the administration he campaigned for. His method to get into office was to publicly -------- all the cl0wn contenders and then moved into name-calling, ridicule, gossiping about, and badger the opponents... rather than discuss policy.

If he gets slapped around its because that is the way he leads. He leads with insults. You lead with stupid bootlicking. Seriously Phesterbutt... he is leaving office in disgrace and there is nothing you can do to stop it... you're getting the America you deserve... and Mexico isn't paying for the wall
