The nation’s top infectious disease expert revealed today he wears a mask in public partly as a “symbol” of best practices during the pandemic — a break with Trump, who's resisted criticism that he should model similar behavior for Americans

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, revealed Wednesday he wears a mask while in public partly as a “symbol” of best practices during the coronavirus pandemic — a break with President Donald Trump, who has resisted criticism that he should model similar behavior for Americans.

The difference of opinion between Fauci and Trump on the issue of masks was thrown into stark relief earlier this month at a Rose Garden news briefing focused on the development of a vaccine for Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. Although Trump could briefly be seen wearing a navy blue face covering while visiting a Ford Motor Co. plant in Michigan last week, he declined to put on a mask during his public tour of the facility or model it for members of the media. “I didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it,” he explained.

At this point it is now all about keeping Trump from having his monster rallys and Biden locked in the cellar w his mask on.

GinaGWeiss Dr. Fauci can't be trusted

He just started doing that. He has several conflicting public statements on masks. Hes a fake. We know because Pathetico LOVES him.

Physicians often see themselves as an example & role model. It's a pity some politicians don't. Honestly, what parent or parents point to Trump & say 'Here is what you should aspire to, educate yourself to become & work towards.' What parent would admit to this kind of abuse?

A symbol. Jeezus.

...while not wearing a mask

Uh oh! Fauci is gonna get a Tweety Beatin' from Spanky! Fake News rant forthcoming...

Nobody effing cares anymore, all you do is lie.

Translation: A mask does nothing to protect you.

Proving yet again it has NOTHING to do with health! It's virtual signaling and attempt to create division and stir up bullying against anyone who doesn't bow down to it!

Trump doesn't do symbolic He takes action....

I don't like how smug Fauci comes off man.

Dr Strange Love is a fraud.

Fauci has gotten more mistakes than an expert America needs better experts than old Bureaucrat Fauci & Brix

Well, the two travel in different circles quite honestly. The president has more safeguards and is able to socially distance much easier than the doctor.

I know its gotten rough out there and it seems like all humility and civility have gone by the boards since realDonaldTrump took office, BUT I DON'T THINK HE'S A ROLL MODEL FOR ANYONE!!

Trump wears no mask as a symbol of having American balls.

In all fairness it's very hard for Trump to put on a mask with his little hands.

That's 'Leadership' A word Trump wouldn't know if it bit him on the ....

'Look, I mean, er, wearing a mask is a personal choice, ummm, I didn't mean anything by what I said yesterday' Fauci tomorrow.

Tony Fauci on masks 😷 Masks are for show and optics and to “make people feel better”.

Symbolic of his Leftist agenda. Scarlet Letter for the easily herded nanny staters. Wear one if you like, show your submissive nature. I put up a picket fence to keep my mosquitoes from getting out. Same same.

The reason that realDonaldTrump doesn't wear a mask is because they can't find one big enough to cover those chubby cheeks and chin. He wants to but can't, isn't that right Tubs?

Virtue signaling. I knew it!

I still believe that Trump is biding his time wondering when it would cost him the least amount of political damage to jettison Fauci. I am now 30 days in on a 90 day over/under making it now a 60 day one.

Rt WhiteHouse

He is not an example nor will ever be.

He wears a mask as a “symbol” = he is virtue signaling.

Poor Dr. Fauci still facepalms himself around the president.

The 'experts' have been wrong about everything since the beginning of the pandemic. Why should I believe they're not wrong about this, too?
