(UPDATED) Culture Wars! Part Infinity!

Who was that masked stable jenius?

Handsome Joe Biden ventured out of his basement on Monday to lay a wreath at Veterans Memorial Park in Delaware, and it would go unremarked in normal times, but we do not live in normal times. You see, he was masked and frankly looked badass as hell:

OPINIONS DIFFERED!!1!

…which of course Lord Damp Nut found threatening, and got his flying monkeys airborne. Brit Hume (still undead! Who knew?) mocked future President Joe Biden for wearing a mask (I note that LDN re-tweeted it):

…and our ambassador for third-world Sex Tourism, er, Prznintial Medal of Freedom award winner  Junkie Limbaugh said that wearing of masks is just more debbil mind control from the Left:

Talk show titan Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday warned that masks have become a “required symbol on the left to promote fear, to promote indecision, to promote the notion that we’re nowhere near out of this.”

We note for the record that the 4th Reich itself recommends wearing masks, so: totally bizarre that Lord Damp Nut would get his lumpen janissaries to take up their slings and arrows when he could just get some Hellmouse of the Deep State to delete the recommendation from the website.

Raggedy Anthrax, er, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany won the Elmira Gantry Huckabee-Sanders Prize for breaking the sound barrier in lies:

Q    Kayleigh, the President tweeted — or retweeted something which seemed to be criticizing Joe Biden for wearing a mask over the weekend.  Was that his intention?  And if it was, why would he criticize that?

MS. MCENANY:  I think — look, you know, the President is excited to see that Joe emerged from the basement.  It is a bit peculiar though that, in his basement, right next to his wife, he’s not wearing a mask, but he’s wearing one outdoors when he’s socially distanced.  So I think that there was a discrepancy there.

He’s not shaming anyone.  As the President noted himself, he wore this mask in private at the Ford facility, and he said he’s open to it if the circumstance mandates it.

Q    Isn’t the guidance to wear a mask when you’re outside though, not when you’re necessarily in your home?

MS. MCENANY:  The guidance says it’s recommended but not required.  So it’s the personal choice of the individual, but it didn’t strike him as a very data-driven decision in that particular incidence.

Lord Damp Nut grasping at straws (or at least straw-colored hair) latched on to McEnany’s vocabulary and parroted it back:

“Joe Biden can wear a mask, but he was standing outside with his wife, perfect conditions, perfect weather … And so I thought it was very unusual that he had one on.”

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie tells us:

… THE PRESIDENT suggested Reuters reporter JEFF MASON was trying to be “politically correct” because he kept his mask on while asking a question at a news conference. …

So anyway, that’s where we are deep in Culture Wars. Possum Hollar wearing Red Hats and The Peeples Republic wearing face masks.

USA TODAY — the largest U.S. newspaper by circulation — says America will hit 100,000 dead from the coronavirus sometime this afternoon.

The irony here is that if people would just wear the damn masks, we might start to recover the economy (Trump’s only concern outside of his corporeal presence) so as usual everything Prznint Stupid touches dies.

UPDATE 1: Tiger Beat email thingie –

CNN’S DANA BASH got the first in-person sit-down with JOE BIDEN during this pandemic. The key exchange:

BASH: “You mentioned the mask — that you wore a mask yesterday, President Trump went to a Memorial Day service, he did not wear a mask. It’s not just some people making fun of you, he did.” BIDEN: “Yes.”

BASH: “He did on Twitter, he retweeted a photo of you wearing it — he’s trying to belittle you for wearing a mask, making it seem like it’s a sign of weakness. Is it?”

BIDEN: “He’s a fool, an absolute fool to talk that way. I mean, every leading doc in the world is saying we should wear a mask when you’re in a crowd, and especially when you know you’re going to be in a position where you’re going to inadvertently get closer than 12 feet to somebody. I know we’re 12 feet apart, I get that.

“But it’s just absolutely this macho stuff, and for a guy — I shouldn’t get going. But it just has — it’s cost people’s lives, it’s costing people’s lives, and like I said we’re almost 100,000 dead today — 100,000 people. Columbia study showing that we could have — if he just started a week earlier would have saved thousands of lives. I mean, these are — this is a tragedy.”

UPDATE 2: Handsome Joe takes a page from climate activist Greta Thunberg expert trolling:

That’s gonna get Lord Damp Nut Depends in a twist.

      I say, old chap, it was the B Ark. It was those slated for the A and C Arks [never built] who stayed home on Golgafrincham and led happy, productive lives until the pandemic, contracted from a dirty telephone. And I suppose you know what color that wheel thing should be?

    Limbaugh is still around?
    Trump made the wearing of masks a political brand. In addition to his vapid vanity, he sees the mask as a reminder of the virus and he is vehemently denying that the virus is a threat. while wearing masks is a proven method to curtail the spread, Trump simply mocks anyone who wears one. He’s plainly out of his mind.

    And yes, Old Handsome Joe looked like a hottie in his mask, and his lovely wife Jill totally rocked hers, too.

      Yes, he’s melting down like the Wicked Witch of the West. And this no mask/open the economy thing is devastating Possum Holler. Check out how “red” (with infections) the Murrican South looks now. https://www.cnn.com/interactive/2020/health/coronavirus-us-maps-and-cases/

      The stupid sonofabitch has never had the slightest bit of management talent. Faced with a real crisis like this, he’s showing that he’s nothing but a disgusting troll. He has abandoned even the appearance of governing. He hasn’t a clue how to do that.

      Worst. President. In. History.

    There is a possibility that there will never be a vaccine for COVID-19. Take AIDS for example. Therefore, as a logical and sentient being, I fail to understand the logic of murdering your own followers. I look forward to the day later this summer when they pivot on mail-in voting.

    Recently it was hydroxychloroquine, then Clorox, then ass lights, now insulin. The Drano cure should be just around the corner.

        Sorry, TG. I’ll just say that mixing Clorox with vinegar makes chlorine gas, so don’t try this at home unless you’re terminally dumb, which lets out all Scissorheads but might be taken as good medical advice by One Who Shall Not Be Named, who might think “What did he have to lose?”

    A friend in Arizona was recently asked why he was wearing a mask. He replied: “it’s an economic decision. I went on Amazon and discovered that masks were cheaper than coffins.”
    Makes sense to me.

    WTF – Is she claiming that LDN actually wears his mask at home when he is around his family?
    I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen a recommendation that we should wear our masks out in public areas, but when you are around only your family or other social unit there’s no need, and probably no point. I mean, if you test positive who are you gonna quarantine with ,again? Right, your family/social-unit. Because you’re living in close quarters with them and there just aren’t enough gloves available to keep from sharing viruses in that close group.
    Did anyone call him her out on that bit of chicanery yet?

    MD _ I noticed that also. And I’ve also been contemplating the reasons for tRump’s reluctance, or even his aversion to wearing a mask. I bet he’s tried on several, from the “Plain-Jane” surgical type, to several different “designer masks,” and couldn’t find one that didn’t interfere with projecting his manly countenance. He wants full-body coverage, but won’t even use a “bikini” in this instance, as it fails in allowing him to constantly demonstrate his “He-man” image and visage.

    Plus, it smears the Bronzer when you take it off.
