As Republicans continue to push for Americans to stop wearing their protective masks despite a recent rise in COVID cases across the country, Donald Trump Jr., son of the failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president says he will still wear his, especially on airplanes.
But Junior’s reason for wearing a mask has nothing to do with health and safety and everything to do with an overinflated ego.
Referencing a poll showing that a majority of us favor mask mandates on public transportation, Don Jr. wrote:
