President Trump Mocks Reporter for Wearing Mask

Despite health officials saying that wearing a mask is a matter of safety, President Trump continues to frame it as a political statement. He refuses to wear one in public, and Tuesday mocked a reporter for choosing to keep his mask on, saying “you want to be politically correct.” But even Fox News' own Sean Hannity is at this point begging people to don masks in public. As late as March, Hannity called the coronavirus pandemic a “hoax” targeted at Trump’s reelection bid.
