Why Does Trump Prefer To Not Wear A Mask? A reporter explains | Morning Joe | MSNBC


THERE WERE ACTUALLY SOME PEOPLE WHO BELIEVED IN HIM FOUR YEARS AGO. NO MORE.>>>ALL RIGHT. LET’S BRING IN WHITE HOUSE REPORTER FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, JONATHAN LEMIRE.>>YOU JUST STEPPED ON WILLIE.>>I DID.>>I HAD THIS INCREDIBLE –>>NO, MIKA’S TURN.>>BECAUSE I NEED TO GET TO CARA LEE. CARA LEE FIVE FOR US AT THE WHITE HOUSE WHITE HOUSE. THE PRESIDENT IS HEADED TO THE MICHIGAN. WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT, CAROL?>>THIS IS HIS THIRD WEEK OF TRAVEL SINCE HE BEGAN VENTURING OUTSIDE OF WASHINGTON AFTER SEVERAL WEEKS OF BEING COOPED UP HERE IN THE WHITE HOUSE. AND HE’S GOING TO A FORD PLANT WHERE HE’S GOING TO — THAT’S MAKING VENTILATORS. AND THE BIG QUESTION THINK HANGING OVER THAT IS THIS MASK ISSUE. WE’VE SEEN THE PRESIDENT NOT ABIDE BY HIS OWN CDC GUIDELINES. YESTERDAY HE WAS SAYING THAT THE FORD POLICY IS THAT EVERYONE WEARS A MASK. THE PRESIDENT SAYING, YOU KNOW, HE DOESN’T KNOW NECESSARILY IF HE’S GOING TO DO THAT. AND THE REASON WHY THAT’S SIGNIFICANT IS JUST BECAUSE THE WAY THE PRESIDENT IS PRESENTING HIMSELF PUBLIC AND THE MESSAGE THAT HE’S SENDING PUBLICLY. THE REASON WHY HE DOESN’T WANT TO WEAR A MASK IS HIS AIDES HAVE SAID IS THAT HE THINKS THAT IT SENDS THE WRONG MESSAGE. SO IT’S SYMBOLIC OF THIS BROADER EFFORT BY HIM TO REALLY TRY TO TURN THE PAGE AND MOVE FORWARD. WE SAW THAT YESTERDAY WITH WHAT YOU GUYS WERE TALKING ABOUT ON CAPITOL HILL WHERE HE WENT THERE AND THE WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS WERE TELLING US IN ADVANCE OF THAT THAT THE INTENT WAS TO TALK ABOUT THE ECONOMY, TO TALK ABOUT THE PANDEMIC, AND THE CRISIS THAT’S HAPPENING HERE IN THE COUNTRY. AND HE DID WHAT HE WANTED TO DO, WHICH IS LEAN INTO HIS RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN AND THE MESSAGE THAT HE FEELS COMFORTABLE WITH. AND THAT IS THIS INVESTIGATIONS THAT HE’S — AND CHARGES THAT HE’S MAKING AGAINST JOE BIDEN AND BARACK OBAMA AND TRYING TO GET REPUBLICANS ON BOARD THERE. WHERE THERE’S A LITTLE DISCONNECT IS HIS STAFF WOULD LIKE HIM TO FOCUS ON THE ECONOMY AND THE PANDEMIC. THEY’RE GOING TO TRY TO GET HIM TO DO THAT WHEN HE GOES TO THE FORD PLANT TOMORROW, MIKA.>>YEAH, CAROL LEE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU.>>AND JONATHAN LEMIRE, I JUST — WHAT — WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH NOT WEARING A MASK? I MEAN, IT IS SO BASIC AND, I MEAN, IS IT AN ISSUE WITH MAKEUP OR HIS APPEARANCE? I’M — I’M JUST CONFUSED BECAUSE IT IS SUCH A CLEAR GUIDELINE TO PROTECT OTHERS. AND ALSO FOR THE PRESIDENT IT WOULD BE A CHANCE TO REALLY BE AN EXAMPLE OF SAFE PRACTICES.>>MIKA, MY COLLEAGUES AND I REPORTED A COUPLE WEEKS AGO WE WERE FIRST ON THIS, THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS TELLING PEOPLE THAT HE DIDN’T WANT TO WEAR A MASK IN PUBLIC BECAUSE HE WAS AFRAID HE WOULD SEND THE WRONG MESSAGE. HE RIGHT NOW, AS CAROL SAID, HIS FOCUS IS THE REMEMBERING ARE IT’S NOT THE HEALTH CRISIS HERE. HE IS TRYING TO DESPERATELY TURN THE PAGE ON THE 90,000 PLUS DEATH TOTAL. THE QUESTIONS ABOUT TESTING, THE QUESTIONS ABOUT A VACCINE. HE’S TRYING TO URGE STATES TO MOVE FORWARD, TO PUSH GOVERNORS TO FULLY REOPEN. IT’S HAPPENING SLOWLY, BUT HE BELIEVES THE ECONOMY HAS TO TURN AROUND FOR HIM TO HAVE ANY CHANCE THIS NOVEMBER. HE THINKS WEARING A MASK WHO PERHAPS DISFRAKT PERHAPS PERHAPS DISTRACT FROM THAT. HE THINKS IT SHOWS A SIGN OF WEAKNESS. HE DOESN’T LIKE HOW HE WOULD LOOK IN A MASK. HE’S AFRAID OF A NEGATIVE CAMPAIGN AD. HE DOESN’T WANT TO BE THERE. HE DOESN’T WANT THE IMAGE OF HIM IN A MASK APPEARING ON TELEVISION OR IN A BIDEN ADVERTISEMENT. HE’S NEVER, TO BE CLEAR, REALLY EMBRACED THE IDEA OF A PRESIDENCY AS A ROLE MODEL. HE’S NEVER IN TERMS OF TRYING TO SET AN EXAMPLE FOR THE NATION’S CHILDREN, LET’S SAY, SOME OF HIS PREDECESSORS HAVE REALLY TAKEN THAT AS PART OF THE JOB RESPONSIBILITY. THIS PRESIDENT IS FAR MORE CONSUMED ABOUT THE DAY-TO-DAY MEDIA BATTLES THAN TRYING TO SET AN EXAMPLE FOR THE COUNTRY. EVEN ON SOMETHING THAT HIS OWN HEALTH EXPERTS RECOMMEND DOING WEARING A MASK.

  • Viktor Renkel says:

    He doesn't want to wear a mask because he wants you fake news haters to get it. #CNN/MSNBC/NONESSENSIALBULLSHIT

  • “I think if this country gets any kinder or gentler, it’s literally going to cease to exist.”
    ― The Donald @ Playboy, March 1990

  • OVER 90,000 in US DEAD, and the VIRUS LAUGHS, US One Fifth of Worlds population, and One Third of the World's Virus Deaths, and the World Laughs at US. Promises Keep where are the Greatest in the World in Death, and Trump is PROUD

  • Tracy4aminute says:

    He refuses to wear a mask because there is NO conclusive evidence of efficacy. It is a symbol or oppression and ignorance. MSNBC. ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE. ENEMY OF TRUTH.

  • the whole pandemic is to benefit pharma, profits have been low for sometime so has dividends, and this whole episode of coronavirus is a way of injecting some much needed profitability into the sector, after much of the chaos is out of the way pharma will be booming with investment, profits, and regenerated drugs, some who have failed to capitalize on the coronavirus will try to lift up their existing drugs in support…clinical trial periods will be lax, govt will make subsides, and help pave the way to reduce time to market increase demand/supply cycles, many pharma companies back politicians, trump is already eye'ing a re-election it will be interesting to note which donors come forward, he is already in support of sanofi for the malaria drug. In fact, if you discover in close inspection, trump has minor investments in literally every major company. Also, isn't it funny that they are discussing about the president not wearing a mask, and yet the entire team of presenters don't appear to be wearing one either. LOL

  • Jason Bourne says:

    The reason he doesn't wear a mask is because his spray-on tan would wear off and show up on the white color mask.

  • Gale Memee of 6 says:

    Trump is so vain he thinks he will look bad wearing a mask. I've got news for you Trump, you look bad and old without a mask. Are you afraid the mask will become orange like your face makeup? You look weak even without a mask. It's your primary school English and your basic misunderstanding of basic common sense rules.

  • Wearing a mask will ruin his hair and makeup. He is working hard to get us to focus on the mask situation, not on 95 000 dead people.

  • Bull! He won't wear a mask because it would rub his orange.spray tan off around his mouth, which would REALLY make him look like an orangutans…

  • christina angelo says:

    What do you mean sends the wrong message thats rich, coming from someone who gets tested every 5 minutes the man is a drop-kick, he really thinks that for one he is above the law and now he thinks that his god like standing amongst us mere mortals is so powerful that he is immune by the mere fact that he is a god in his own mind, please vote him out in November people, he can and he will destroy more of your beautiful country you watch…………………

  • He's protected by taking Hydroxychloroquine and Clorox and wearing a mask sends a bad message….what a clown.

  • Real Patriot says:

    MSDNC loves fear mongering. They need the president to wear a mask so that they can scare as many Americans as possible

  • Aargh. While we discuss Trump's mask over 1,000 Americans have died today. Where are the pictures of them being carried out of the hospitals? Where are the grieving families? If a half-dozen passenger jets fell out of the sky today we'd have wall-to-wall coverage. Once again, Trump has shouted "squirrel" and the media have been successfully distracted from the carnage in our nation. smh.

  • Why doesn't trump put on a mast when he is standing behind when other speaks
    The cops wrestle down people that doesnt use mask

  • He's gonna do what he's gonna do. He is a stupid man and I wish he wasn't the president . He isn't going to change. Let's just vote his face out and everyone else in government that supports his face.

  • Stephen Burrows says:

    He is setting an example for children – lie, cheat, steal, and distort the facts… 😢, as a role model for kicking the little bloke and bullying as a preferred strategy for life…

  • Емиля Чернова says:

    I hope he gets the disease and dies (as long as Americans sit down doing nothing and let this man crush their freedom, rights and the whole idea of democracy, I don't see any other way of getting rid of him for USA's own sake)

  • Please stop telling this pos to put a mask on,dotard is unhealthy so let's pray he gets it so we can celebrate his funeral signed Hitler

  • hopethisworks1212 says:

    Being only partially human he has total immunity, unless of course it jumps species again to sewer rats

  • But he is taking the Dr (his) recommended drug 💊 so Professor Trump is ok 👍. Plus he has complete understanding of everything. He is like a great Wizard.. I wonder 🤔 the great Wizard who knows all and sees all how come he can't fix 🔨🔧 his hair?

  • trumpy thinks no mask shows courage and strength.
    He goes that route since showing intelligence is impossible for the dotard.

  • So he can look more or less Presidential in addition to letting all the people see his ruggedly handsome good looks?

  • Marion Wilson Thomas says:

    When men in white coats finally drag this insane orange person from the White House, books will be written by psychiatrists. I feel sorry for his youngest son.

  • While donnie is in MI he should stop and visit his beloved protesters in Lansing. C'mon donnie what are you afraid of? Liberate yourself.

  • Cynthia Placido says:

    Doesn't want to spoil his ugly oops I mean good looks. Hate to tell him but an orange pimple is always an orange pimple.

  • Karrin Perez says:

    The masks are ineffective and perpetuate this climate of fear! You wear a mask when you’re sick not all the time. Wise up people and think for yourselves! Stop pandering to the fear mongering and listening to everything you’re told without using critical thought.

  • President Donald J Trump does not wear a mask because he is not a coward and he sees the media as the traitors they are! MASKS ARE FOR COWARDS! WEAR YOUR MASKS AND STAY HOME YOU COWARDS AND THE COURAGEOUS PATRIOTS WILL FIGHT THE EVIL COMMUNISTS THAT ARE WIELDING THEIR TYRANNY! It was the same 3 percent of patriots that fought the revolutionary war and started this great country. It was the same small percent that has fought and died that has kept this country free. So it is a small percent that continues to keep this country free while the mask wearing cowards are social distancing or hiding in their homes, because they believe the media lies! THE MEDIA LIES!

  • My guess is Trump will get away with not wearing a mask at the Ford Plant in Ypsilanti, MI.
    Ford Motor Co. won't want to risk angering Trump supporters because they want to make sure those people continue to buy Ford products.

  • Joel Vorensky says:

    He's set an example, over 95,000, over 95,000 Covid-19 dead, 1.5 million cases, and 14.7% unemployed. Know, Trump came to power because of his alliance with Russian Troll Farm disinformation/ conspiracy theory guru Rykov. Now, it's time for we the people take our power back in November! Vote!

  • The tan would erase on the points of contact….Making him…

    DUSTED OFF DONALD….Plus he sees himself above y'all….wake up, he's living this dimension……remembernovember

  • no name is necessary says:

    Actually not wearing a mask is about security, if he wears a mask it will be easy to fake or stage trump in bad light or even replace the president just long enough to take over the military. It's about safety and image, showing himself. So someone else doesn't adjust the eyes with makeup and hairstyle and covers up the face so no need to mimicking facial movements, use a speaker behind the mask to project trumps voice and cause confusion amongst the military.

  • Sophie Sadeghi says:

    The question is why should he wear a mask? When he’s getting tested everyday for COVID-19 and the result is negative 👍🏻✅

  • Dale Marcell says:

    I believe most people would live to put a mask on this A-hole. Let’s have a mask party. Let’s see how he can breathe if everyone puts a mask on his face all at once. Would you join this party mask 🎊 ?

  • Raymond Duberry says:

    Hello it is Raymond Duberry again, Well having been cured by God of the coronavirus his recipe mentioned on my youtube web site, i being a karaoke compare contracted covid on the 6th of February 2020, I suffered for 4 weeks but through God i am healthier now than i have been in a long time, i never knew what was wrong with me but now i am here to spread the cure check out my youtube channel.

  • KEV WAINWRIGHT says:

    because he knows exactly how many the virus is really killing – he knows the true number and the mortality rate is why

  • He doesnt wear one because hes absolutely stupid.and just those fools that watches and follow him are just as dumb as he is .

  • I do declare… this virus is really showing off Trump's true colors.
    They (who know) say trying times brings forth our true character!
    And then again… maybe a mask would smear his spray-on tan??!
