That’s not the reason he doesn’t wear face-masks. He knows that the masks only protect against giving someone the virus and he kinds of thinks it an honor if someone already needs to get the virus that they’d get it from him. He’d sign it if he could. But the masks don’t protect the wearer.
Besides, it’s against his macho bully ego to be scared of such a small virus.
UK PM Boris Johnson, often nicknamed the British Donald Trump, almost died from the virus so you’d think that would have woken up the US President. But it didn’t. Why?
The latter is even in heightened risk groups. He is an older obese male. But being the eternal and baseless optimist The Donald is, he only looks at his low-risk factors. All his life he winged any situation so why not now too?
Already one person close to the President got infected and three people close to him had someone close to them who got the virus. To not be a link in the chain of infection, a majority of US citizens sit at home in isolation for weeks already. But the White House is like a hive of activity. (In Dutch we call such a dovecote, a place where people come and go non-stop.) Still, Trump isn’t impressed. Why?
The disease is mainly transmitted by hands. Have you seen his hands?
He has kid’s hands and the virus doesn’t bother kids so much. The trickster in chief thinks to fool the virus too.
And President D. (Dennis the menace) has one more secret weapon. Ever seen how he shakes hands? He doesn’t give hands — he doesn’t give but to himself. He takes hands and then tries to squeeze the living daylight out of them. He guesses that will flatten the virus’ curves better than bleach.
Some still ridicule Trump and don’t notice that he has the best strategy for fighting COVID-19 and winning the 2020 elections. He leaves the decision to open the States to the respective governors. If s/he so stupid, careless, greedy, or ignorant to reopen the State too early, he’ll blame him/her for the extra deaths. But if the economy of the State crumbles more than the American average, he’ll blame the Governor for that. Fail-proof.
If the American People would reelect Trump, may the L^rd protect them. Because no one else will.
