The media continues to disgrace itself with the coverage of Trump such is their desire to turn politics into a blood sport.
The media provokes not investigates, they play petty games rather than seriously trying to hold our elected leaders to account. It’s a game and Trump is on to them.
The new one is: Trump is a terrible guy because he refuses the media’s demands to wear a mask.
Now, if he did put one on they would find some fault or get a bad picture and mock him for it. We know they would do that because they do that with everything Trump does.
Whatever he does is not just wrong but evil and malicious. They view everything he does as a way to get him. So so they will attack him for not wearing one and hint at malicious intent.
So today Ivanka had to shut them down and shame them with the simple truth. She very nicely told them, in so many words: When you are POTUS you can tell everyone else around you to wear masks so you don’t have to. Perks of the job.
From USA Today:
Ivanka Trump, daughter and senior adviser to President Donald Trump, says she wears a mask at the White House, and that’s one reason the president doesn’t have to.
“There are different procedures as it relates to interacting with the president,” Ivanka Trump told USA TODAY on Thursday when asked about criticism her father has gotten for declining to wear a mask in public.
The president “is tested on a daily basis – all those who come into contact with him are tested on a daily basis,” she said in an interview. “No one is in close proximity to him that isn’t wearing a mask.”
She added: “I always wear a mask when I am with the president, and everyone is instructed to do so as well.”
As has happened on previous trips, Trump was notably among the few people not wearing a mask during a tour of a medical supply distributor Thursday in Allentown, Pa.

The president has come under criticism for largely ignoring the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, which advises Americans to wear masks in public and to self-quarantine after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
Last week, the White House implemented new safety measures after two aides tested positive for the coronavirus and three members of the coronavirus task force entered quarantine after attending meetings with one of the staff members diagnosed with the disease.
