America’s Coronavirus Story: Wasted Pain.

Donald Trump mocks those who wear masks. He suggests that not wearing a mask is a means for his supporters to show their loyalty for him. He refuses to wear a mask himself. He holds mass, indoor political rallies where almost no one wears masks because of the above messages from our President.

He lied to you months ago as this problem built. He lies to you now as it surges to record levels, still telling you in defiance of plain facts that it has gone away. That you may not believe this reality-defying insanity is not the point. Enough do that they abandon the common sense precautions of social distancing and wearing a mask. They heed Trump’s call to show their loyalty to him by not wearing a mask and going out. In doing so they put not just themselves but everyone else at risk.
