WASHINGTON (Reuters) – In a rare break with mask-averse President Donald Trump, fellow Republican leaders are advocating for face coverings as COVID-19 cases surge in some Republican-leaning states.
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said there should be no stigma attached.
“Wearing simple face coverings is not about protecting ourselves, it is about protecting everyone we encounter,” McConnell said on the floor of the Senate.
I wish amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch would try on one of the Hannibal Lechter numbers, or at least a BDSM gimp mask with zippered lips (and you know, Know, KNOW he has a collection in his basement). One for each of his two faces would be nice.
