Trump Mocks Reporter for Wearing a Mask in Oval Office Packed With Maskless WH Officials

What a fucking asshole...



By Joe DePaolo

Just weeks after a coronavirus outbreak at the White House, President Donald Trump mocked a member of the press corps for adhering to safety guidelines flouted by numerous members of his administration.

During a Friday afternoon Oval Office pool spray announcing a U.S.-brokered normalization deal between Israel and Sudan, Trump chided Reuters’ Jeff Mason for taking safety precautions. Mason was trying to direct a question to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was participating via conference call. Trump relayed the query – citing Mason wearing a mask as the reason Netanyahu could not hear the question.

“This is Jeff Mason,” Trump told Netanyahu. “He’s got a mask on that’s the largest mask I think I’ve ever seen. So I don’t know if you can hear him.”

The line drew laughter from Trump officials and others in the room — many of whom were not wearing masks. According to the White House pool report, there were 40-50 people in the Oval Office altogether.

5. Trump wouldn't care.

He's had it and "miraculously" recovered and thinks he's immune now. He couldn't care less if anyone else gets it, including his staff and his family.
