    It’s all about his image, he doesn’t want to wear one because having him sat behind the resolute desk and having pictures of him would make his image look bad. That’s all he cares about, not because he cares about his health or anything like that.

    Don't get me wrong, I cant stand the guy but I think him choosing to not wear a mask is fair enough, he just doesn't articulate it particularly well.

    You can see in my posts here that I seriously dislike him but the some of media just come across as petty by nitpicking every single thing. He's a complete moron but sometimes maybe just let it go once in a while.

    He talks so much crap that articles are saturated with his dumb comments but some of them are just insignificant and don't warrant coverage.

    To be fair long term it might be a stimulus for job repatriation, which has been trickling back over the last few years as costs in China have risen or stats quo resumes, who knows. But yea, for the short-medium term it's not going well. :p

    I prefer the ticker headline at the start "Sec Ross : It's almost physically impossible for there to be a recession this year"

    :D

    Since his job is predominantly about image, it is an important factor. Although I think he's wrong in this context, i.e. I think that wearing a mask when meeting people wouldn't look bad at the moment. Depending on the mask, of course. Not Leatherface or Jason Voorhees masks :)

    He's missing an opportunity to sell red MAGA masks to be honest lol.

    He's advising people not to wear masks so there's enough for health care workers, which is really solid advice, but you want him to not take his own advice and wear one?

    I don't particularly care whether he wears a mask, a gag certainly.:p

    Exactly my point but didn’t articulate it very well. I would say the same about any other world leader, wear a mask or gloves when meeting others etc. If not to protect yourself but protect others as well.
    At the end of the day, he shouldn’t be ridiculed for wearing a mask. If the media did that then that says more about the media than it does about Trump.
    Plenty of other things to rip Trump about.

    Because in the UK when they give briefings they are all wearing masks....

    No one mentioned that Trump sacked the Intelligence IG last night. He waited till the middle of a pandemic to get rid of the man who had the balls to do his job when Barr and the DNI said not to. He’ll replace him with someone who he feels will be personally loyal to him rather than the job and constitution.

    Agree with this, pick your battles and all that... if you constantly go on about relatively minor things it's more likely to make his fans etc think you're just being overly critical.

    He does so much stuff that's actually worth criticising that there's no need to look for small things to nitpick.

    Was just catching up, Trump going for revenge and abusing power again. Total disregard for the rule of law and left to do what he pleases when you cross him. Corruption at its finest. Like you say will give that job to another yes man Barr clone to do the dirty work for him. Presidency running more like mob outfit everyday.

    Remarkable displays of bias there.

    Firstly, the distinction Trump made is genuine and makes a lot of difference. Job losses due to a mandatory and temporary shutdown with a 2 trillion dollar stimulus package with cash payments to everyone and expanded welfare payments is very different to job losses due to a massive recession.

    Secondly, note the ellipses in the quote refering to Trump's words. The words were removed to make it look like he said he was probably going to do more to shut the economy down. In fact, he said he was probably going to do more to help people affected by the shutdown.

    That's a degree of bias that is effectively lying. Which is par for the course.

    This is the guy that changed the whistle blower requirements to allow non-witness reporting and an unworthy complaint to be an "acceptable" one in order for the scumbags in the house to try and impeach him

    You can bet your arse that they have enough evidence that allowed Trump to fire him

    And in other exciting news @tang0 has been at the Kool Aid again and has forgotten to put his tin foil hat back on before approaching the internet.

    If Trump wore one he’d be complaining that he’s taken it away from a health worker.
