Watch Trump mock Laura Ingraham for wearing a mask at his rally
Trump has continued to attack masks as the virus death toll rises.
Donald Trump on Friday mocked Fox News host Laura Ingraham for wearing a mask to his campaign rally.
After he pointed out Ingraham in the audience, Trump laughed at the host for wearing a protective mask — during the pandemic that has killed over 227,000 Americans so far.
“Where is Laura? I can’t recognize you. Is that a mask? No way. Are you wearing a mask? I’ve never seen her in a mask. Look at you. Oh, she’s being very politically correct,” Trump said.
Trump and his administration have repeatedly mocked mask-wearing, even as the death toll from COVID-19 has risen.
The mockery continued even as his own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director, Robert Redfield, testified to Congress that a mask is more likely to save lives than a vaccine.
From an Oct. 30 campaign rally:
DONALD TRUMP: I do believe Laura Ingraham is here someplace. Where is Laura? Where is she? Where is Laura? I can’t recognize you. Is that a mask? No way. Are you wearing a mask? I’ve never seen her in a mask. Look at you. Oh, she’s being very politically correct. Whoa. Whoa, I’ve never seen – Laura Ingraham, she’s fantastic. Thank you.
