    No Mask Bask

    US President Donald Trump visited a Ford plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan, without wearing a face mask on Thursday. This was after the state’s attorney general warned that he might be banned from the state if he violated the gubernatorial order.

    No Mask Bask
    Although wearing a face covering out in public is the norm these days, The Donald refuses to wear a mask, as it goes against his image, and he reportedly believes that wearing a face mask would “send the wrong message” and cause him to lose the upcoming election. 

    Trump has never been seen wearing a mask in public, and he didn’t let his very public visit to the Ford factory in Michigan - or the state’s governor - stop him. Prior to Trump’s visit, Michigan State Attorney General Dana Nessel sent him an open letter imploring him to wear a face covering during his visit, pointing out that he has a "legal" and "moral" responsibility to do so.

    She made a point to mention that it is not only the policy of Ford to wear a facial covering, it is also the law of the state. 

    "Anyone who has potentially been recently exposed, including the President of the United States, has not only a legal responsibility, but also a social and moral responsibility, to take reasonable precautions to prevent further spread of the virus," Nessel wrote in the letter. 

    With the leader of the free world setting such a low bar, one can only wonder what to expect from his followers. Nothing like leading by example!
