Former White House Adviser on Trump Not Wearing a Mask: ‘Do as I Say Not as I Do Isn’t Very Useful’

Former homeland security adviser Tom Bossert says President Donald Trump’s decision to not wear a mask in public is not a good way to convince people to follow the government’s guidelines to do so.

“Do as I say not as I do isn’t very useful to reinforce what the doctor just said,” Bossert said during an interview on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday,

He continued, “Instead of focusing on what you can’t do this weekend, a couple of things you should do: Wear a mask it’s common decency, pray and think about those that passed in our former wars for Memorial Day … but also that passed in the last three months.”

Bossert also reminded Americans to continue to practice social distancing and proper handwashing.

Watch the video below:

Bossert’s comments come after Trump has attended several public events without wearing a mask. 

On Thursday, Trump toured a Ford factory in Michigan. When asked why he was not wearing a mask, Trump said that he had worn one, but reporters did not see it, “I had one on before. I wore one in this back area, but I didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it.”

After Trump’s visit, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel told CNN that he is not welcome back in the state when she was asked. 

She responded, “I would say speaking on behalf of my department and my office, that’s right. That’s exactly right. I mean, today’s events were extremely disappointing and totally predictable.”

Before his visit, Nessel warned, “If he fails to wear a mask, he’s going to be asked not to return to any enclosed facility inside our state. I know that Ford has asked him to do the same thing.”

Responses

  1. Who cares? Can we not think for ourselves? Do we need government to hold our hand?

  2. is this guy for real? The doctors, leaders of other countries, and governors to mention a few DO NOT wear masks when speaking since they cannot be understood. A leader does not cower besides Trump is damned whatever he does. Well it seems like there was good reason for this person to be replaced.
    By the way, who cares what Michigan’s AG said – the people of MI voted for the people in government and now they are learning what they are worth.

  3. “Common decency”? Since when do pro-choicers care about human life? Pets got better healthcare than people, and pets don’t pay taxes.

    Democrats, and republicans (keep it real, but passed in the democrat-controlled house first) spent $2T on ‘economic relief’ when that $2T should’ve been spent on curing coronavirus and all other diseases and viruses.

    PS: They shouldn’t have spent that money on anything. They’re not the ones who have to pay it back.

  4. I bet there is a real good reason that you are an EX-Homeland Security adviser. But I bet you are still holding a grudge because you were fired, huh.

  5. I don’t believe you were wearing one either. And besides, he was further away then 6 feet and this whole thing was created by the left to try and steal this year’s election. Not to worry, we’re not as stupid as you Devilcrats make us out to be. The only way a Devilcrat is going to get in the White House after November is if they take the tour.

  6. Coming from someone not working in the White House was he fired or was working for Obama. Either way sour grapes.

  7. Wonder why they left out the mayor of Chicago or the gov of VA? Selective outrage is all the rage with MSM hacks.

  8. A lot of European and other world leaders don’t wear masks, either. Are they getting slammed too?

  9. Looks like ABC found another disgruntled former employee to attack the President. Do they ever try to report the truth, like Trump hasn’t contracted the disease, despite all the Democrats’ criticism?

      1. go back to bed, Tom. You woke up stupid again.

        1. Trump needs his face on a Postage Stamp the only way that will happen is if your dead I can live with that lets put him on a stamp

          1. Yeah right, then you’ll complain that he wasn’t worthy enough to be on a postage stamp. You’re pathetic TOM. #DHS should really be following you and your #DeathThreats

  10. Guess what Bossert?!? America is open and if you don’t have anything nice to say Please STFU…

  11. Robert, John is telling the truth, the one that the liar in chief and you refuse to accept.

    1. Minerva, are you in John’s basement, stroking him. You two sound like you’re in love.

  12. Ever notice the liberal media hunts these guys down…

    Tom Bossert, Trump’s homeland security adviser, fired as Bolton takes power, source says
    National Security Adviser John Bolton — whose first day on the job was Monday — is consolidating power and Bossert’s removal is the first of those steps.

    What?? Did I miss the medical training??

    He attended the University of Pittsburgh, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Economics in 1997, and attended George Washington University Law School, earning his Juris Doctor in 2003.[9]

    1. When the IQ descends, the commie lefties pounce. That is our new guy

      1. When you have an I Q as low as Trumps assholes like you defend him because your I Q is lower than his and that is hard to do.

        1. Did your mommy help you write that? Pretty big words for you, Tom.

  13. I never wear a mask either unless I have to go inside the grocery store. Many have said the masks are harmful and we should not be wearing them. If your eyes and ears aren’t covered, then it’s a waste anyway.

  14. trumpukelicans not only put up with their god-idol trumpukeisapsychopath’s- THE RECTUM-IN-CHIEF”S- evil self service , refusal to take responsibility for anything, pathological lying, and grotesque narcissistic personality disorder they actively embrace and encourage them.

    Making them far more evil, toxic, useless, and worthless than he is in my view.

    1. All this love for Donald. You want those hands to touch you. Your love and obsession

      1. Describing yourself when speaking of others is a mental illness. Your god-idol trumpukeisanabortion does it all the time.

      1. Yet you ALWAYS read and reply.
        Only Caucasian trash with their head permanently
        lodged in their rectum does stupid shit like that.

        1. It’s fun to watch just how stupid you can be, although it is becoming boring. Nothing new from you. You’ve begun losing control of your fingers, unable to lift then from the keys. It appears your limited number of brain cells have reached their limit. Do get help.

    2. I’m finding it hard to reply to a left-wing idiot who doesn’t understand how things work and has been up the Devilcrats ass for so long the lack of oxygen has caused a massive stroke.

      1. Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhtttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt !

        Of course you being a stupid, Caucasian trash, trumpuker with your head locked up your ass forever has nothing to do with your inadequacy.
