Donald Trump denied mocking former Vice President Joe Biden for wearing a mask to an outdoor Memorial Day event, then appeared to do just that to a reporter who insisted on keeping his face covering on during a Rose Garden event on Tuesday.
"You want to be politically correct," the president said to Reuters reporter Jeff Mason, whom he had asked to remove his mask to ask a question more audibly amid the coronavirus outbreak.

"No. I just want to wear the mask," Mr Mason shot back, his mask in place.

Mr Biden and wife Jill Biden wore black masks on Monday to a Memorial Day event in Delaware, while the president and wife Melania Trump did not for ceremonies in Baltimore and Arlington, Virginia.

I really wish we could cut off his oxygen supply by not reporting on him and his stupidity, because you know he would go nuclear. He’s now saying Twitter is trying to suppress his free speech because they are now putting fact checks on his tweets. He’s president but doesn’t understand the first amendment. Peachy.

We have moved on to mask shaming.

Sluts and fat people everywhere are overjoyed.

Of course, they are still called "sluts and fat people" by southerners, and people with indelicate manners. Rolling Eyes

It appears that Twitter has responded to part of what you want, Cass. They have started marking his tweets with the "Fact Check" logo, providing a link to the truth.

Trump is livid. He accuses Twitter of playing politics, and of denying free speech. The poor fool doesn't know...free speech is guaranteed only as against governments. Private companies can do what they want.

Also, telling people to 'Fact Check' is not a prohibition on free speech, but inclusive of even more information. It's expansive of the right, not restrictive. That can't be a bad thing, can it?

I know. I thought I typed He’s now saying and it came up as not. Sorry for any confusion.
