I wore one in this back area but I didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it,” he told reporters and photographers covering his visit.

Imagine him not wanting to cover his jowly face at every possible opportunity 🤷🏻♂️ Because he is not a idiot that will wear a mussel because some medical mafia person says so!! He would have the best doctors in the world advising him. Not some puppet that dances too their masters beat for money. It might rune his hair and make up 🤭
At least he was elected in and has a mandate unlike the shower over here. That will keep those hands quiet Masks don't work ! I am no fan of Donald, but there is evidence he did wear one, to inspect the vintage vehicles but not when mixing with people. Asshole ! Varadkar and Harris did the same in Crumlin hospital, surrounded by medics all wearing them but they blithely went without 😡
'Providing open access to valuable journalism' 😂🤣😂🤣 with shit like this 🤣😂🤣😂 yeah let's jump on the hate train for more clicks Perhaps you should look a little closer to home. Plenty of imagery in recent days of people here using public transport WITHOUT masks despite being recommended to do so. It's disrespectful to the staff and fellow passengers. Why not write an article calling the Irish public out?
If he doesn’t have the virus he doesn’t need to wear a mask That's like saying I couldn't have got her pregnant, I wore a condom yesterday This is a non story He doesn’t need to wear the mask if he doesn’t have the virus and he’s tested regularly “Why do I need to wear a condom, sure I wore one last week”!
why would he need to wear a mask?
