It’s a non issue, they will wear masks if required.
It's not that a mask will make Trump look unmanly. It's the fact that the mask lifts his makeup onto the mask.
These are the new problems the RNC now has.
I would like to see Trump and his troop wearing masks.
He would not wear one, but everyone else could.
If the virus is still raging, everyone should, including him. Even Mitch McConnell, Trump's chief enabler, has endorsed wearing masks. https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/30/politics/republicans-encourage-wear-a-mask/index.html
Mitch McConnell, senate leader, can make his own decisions. It’s none of our concern whether the President wears a mask or not. I don’t know how you do it. I can’t sustain the anger of hatred continually. That must be exhausting and a lot of negative energy.
Showtalks says; "Mitch McConnell, senate leader, can make his own decisions."
No. He's recommending that all of us wear masks. It's a blanket statement:
"We must have no stigma, none, about wearing masks when we leave our homes & come near other people,” said McConnell, R-Ky. “Wearing simple face coverings is not about protecting ourselves, it is about protecting everyone we encounter."
“In fact, the more we dislike the pain and suffering caused by the strict stay-home guidelines a few months ago, the happier we should be to take reasonable small steps every day to ensure our country can stay on offense against the virus [bolding mine --MD].” McConnell added. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/mcconnell-face-masks-protecting-everyone

I disagree. He should provide a model. I'm sure that there is a smattering of people who say to themselves "if he can do, so can I." Not really a good attitude under the circumstances.

That's rather humorous. You know nothing about me but keep trying to insult me.
That's like an abusive father telling his son "do as I say, not as I do" when he smacks his wife.
Leaders should lead by words, by actions and by example. Just leading by words is simply blowing hot air.
I am not trying to insult you, it’s an observation. Many times when you mention a major Republican figure you call them names that come out of anger or derision when most people use them. It’s happening so often, I made the assumption there was emotion behind it. If not anger, then what? I don’t mind being corrected. It is still very negative, whether anger or not.
