Trump Seen Wearing a Mask in Public for the First Time During Visit to Walter Reed

Following months of criticism for not wearing face-covering in public, President Donald Trump was seen sporting a blue mask during a trip to Walter Reed National Medical Center.

Before his visit, Trump told reporters, “I think when you are in a hospital, especially in that particular setting when you are talking to a lot of soldiers, people that in some cases just got off the operating table, I think it’s a great thing to wear a mask.”

Earlier this month,Trump said, “I’m all for masks, I think masks are good.”

However, he explained that he has not been seen wearing a mask in public because he is usually able to remain socially distant, and the people he comes in contact with are tested beforehand.

Images of Trump wearing a mask quickly spread on Twitter:

However, when he left, he was not wearing a mask:

Despite criticism of not wearing a mask, Trump has previously insisted that he has worn face masks and, “I sorta liked the way I looked.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that Americans wear face coverings when they are unable to practice social distancing. 

However, Trump’s refusal for previously refusing to be seen wearing a mask has drawn criticism. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said, “The president should be an example. Real men wear masks.”

“Be an example to the country and wear the mask. It’s not about protecting yourself. It’s about protecting others and their families,” she added. 

And in May, former Vice President Joe Biden (D) responded to a tweet Trump shared that apparently poked fun at Biden for wearing a mask at a Memorial Day event.

“He’s a fool … An absolute fool to talk that way,” Biden said. “This macho stuff, for a guy — I shouldn’t get going, but it just, it costs people’s lives. It’s costing people’s lives.”

“Presidents are supposed to lead, not engage in folly and be falsely masculine,” he added.

  1. Glad to see Trump followed Biden’s advice.” Michael

    Now we will see a spike in Cult-45 chuckleheads wearing masks and berating others for NOT wearing them in public.

  2. According to the latest numbers, at least 1,866,428 Americans are either known to be currently sick or dying because of King Donald The Loser’s total incompetence regarding the Trump Virus, let alone all of the OTHER crazy shit that has done while sitting on his golden throne.

  3. ” It’s a big deal to wear a mask around soldiers

    in a hospital especially if they’ve just come out

    of the operating room. ”
