Robert Ian-Salit of Panama City Beach thinks President Trump’s refusal to wear a face mask sets a terrible example for Americans.
Almost three weeks ago I was in our beach Publix and almost all the shoppers were wearing some type of face mask, as it seemed all the staff was.
Last week I was again in Publix and to my surprise while the staff were still all wearing face masks, only about half the shoppers, at least to me, were wearing some type of face mask.
This morning (Monday 5/11) when I went into the same Publix, almost none of the shoppers were wearing some type of face mask, while all the employees had face masks on.

I know this is Republican country, although I have no idea why, and these Republicans watch and listen to Trump. I wonder if they realize that Trump is tested for COVID-19 every day. Testing is not a problem for Trump or the White House staff.
Masks are now required for most if not all of the White House and the VP’s staff. Of course, Trump doesn’t wear a mask and doesn’t seem to care about us, the average citizens, wearing one, but when the first Trump aide was found with the COVID-19 virus, Trump was reported to have had “a lava like meltdown” that that his own staff was not doing enough to protect him.
In other words, according to Trump, do as I say, not as I do. You, the average citizen, don’t have to get tested and don’t have to wear a mask, but if you’re me, Trump, you get tested every single day and all those around Trump now have to wear masks.
Is it just me or is there some type of double standard in Trump’s message?
