People hate the masks and they’re sick of having this forced on them.
Mike DeWine is a lunatic.
Ohio Lt. Gov. Jon Husted (R) was heckled on Monday by supporters of President Trump, who objected to Husted mentioning wearing masks.
Husted spoke at a Trump rally outside of Dayton, and came onstage sporting a red mask with “Trump 2020” printed on the front. “I’m trying to make masks in America great again,” he said to jeers. Husted pulled out another mask that said “MAGA,” which did nothing to get the crowd on his side — instead, the boos continued and one person shouted at him, “Get off the stage!”
It wasn’t just the idea of wearing masks to protect others that got the crowd riled up — when Husted mentioned Gov. Mike DeWine (R), who made masks mandatory in most indoor areas, that opened him up to another round of boos. DeWine and Husted are co-chairs of Trump’s campaign in Ohio, and when Trump later mentioned the governor during his speech, some jeering could be heard. Trump called DeWine “a real good friend of mine,” and promised the audience, “He’s opening up.”
After the election, if Trump goes full anti-hoax, I think he can get everyone on board with just ending this hoax.
Let’s stop testing, stop recording these fake deaths, and move on with our lives.
Here’s the full Trump speech in Ohio.
