Mark Meadows just epitomized the White House's stupefying position on masks

For a fleeting moment a while back, President Trump actually gave into pressure to embrace masks. That moment has clearly passed, with Trump again casting doubt on their efficacy, holding largely maskless rallies and returning to ridiculing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for wearing his.

As Iíve written before, itís a decidedly dumbfounding stance ó especially as health experts and even many GOP governors emphasize how wearing a mask is such a simple, vital way to further two of Trumpís coronavirus priorities: reopening our economy and returning to school.

But now that Trump is toeing this line again, he has left those around him to account for it. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows just showed how impossible that is to do in good faith.

During a brief Q&A with reporters Thursday morning, Meadows offered his own bewildering comments about why he doesnít wear a mask. His argument basically boiled down to this: If itís not 100 percent effective, Iím not interested.

4. I feel like this administration is a living cartoon with a creepy clown and a circus full

marionettes who praise him and do whatever he wants because they are corrupt and scared to death of him.

5. There is a weird dynamic with his mob.

He set them off in the direction of being anti-mask. Then he tried to change direction when the virus wouldn't cooperate. The mob kept going in the original direction so now Trump is following them. They can't keep up with all his changes so he changes back.

6. And because of Don-Don, we have idiocy like yesterday's Target Flash Mob.

At least one of those jackasses was the embodiment of Matt Bors' Hat Guy.
