Former Trump administration official Tom Bossert publically stabbed President Trump in the back on Sunday, criticizing him for not consistently wearing a mask in public.
Trump has not worn a mask in every public appearance because he is testing for COVID-19 on a daily basis and thus would not be unknowingly spreading the virus to those around him.
However, Bossert said in response to Trump’s decision to not wear a mask in front of reporters last week that “do as I say, not as I do isn’t very useful to reinforcing what the doctor just said.”
Bossert, who resigned from his former position as Homeland Security Adviser in April of 2018, argued that wearing a mask is “common decency.”
The former adviser left the administration on cordial terms, though not much is known about the circumstances prompting him to resign. Then-White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said at the time of his resignation that, “President Trump thanks him for his patriotic service and wishes him well.”
Public hysteria surrounding Trump’s decision to not cover his face at all times is at a fever pitch.
CNN even went so far as to track Trump down during his first golfing trip since the pandemic began, reporting that “the president is moving around the course in a golf cart alone but is golfing with three partners. None of the men are wearing masks.”
