These powerful campaign ads are likely going to be our salvation. This one in particular should be effective in red states, where COVID-19 is spiking and even prominent Republicans like Dick Cheney are telling everybody to wear a mask.
Today the White House held it’s first coronavirus meeting in two months. Mike Pence asked people to pray four times — and didn’t say “wear a mask” once. So now Republican politicians and Mike Mattis are taking the reins into their own hands, since the federal government is currently unmanned by anybody but the corrupt and the clueless.

Then James Mattis chimes in. What a pleasure to hear a sentence or two of sanity and leadership in a time of crisis. God knows we’re not getting it from the White House, that’s the last place you’re going to find those two things.
Here's video of James Mattis wearing a mask, urging others to do the same and saying: "Over the course of my career, I’ve learned that divisiveness will never work in defeating an enemy." pic.twitter.com/fOYLnS6Iqn

Rob Portman posted a tweet about mask wearing, John Boozman, Jerry Moran, they’re all making a break from Donald Trump. And here’s the thing with Trump and mask wearing, which would be comical if the implications weren’t so tragic: it’s rumored that Trump won’t wear a mask because he doesn’t want to smear his makeup. Seriously. For those of us with normal skin color and/or real suntans, this is not a problem. As to his other machismo issues, appearing “weak” whatever nuttiness, I have no clue, so I won’t comment.
Another unbelievable day in Trump world.
