It's Trump who's embracing science on COVID: Democrats instead are following superstition
World Net Daily ^ | October 27, 2020 | Jonathon Moseley

The Hill published an extremely partisan, anti-Trump opinion column, “Science Seeks Truth, Trump Denies It,” by outside contributors. Once again they beat the drum that Trump denies "the science," but in fact it is Trump critics doing so. (Note that The Hill declined to publish this rebuttal to its anti-Trump screed.)

Our antennae should go up when we hear vague, foggy slogans. They say Trump should follow the science. Yet they do not identify anything that a Joe Biden or anyone else could do as president that President Trump hasn't already done.

The only example in the fog is wearing masks, but Joe Biden does not consistently wear a mask. The most amusing part of the final presidential debate was Joe Biden holding up a mask next to his face (time 38:01) – while not actually wearing it – saying the science says we must wear these. But he wasn't wearing it. He was holding it up as a prop.

The science – after the experts told us don't wear masks – is that you either maintain an anti-social distance or you wear a mask. Not both. As the Associated Press admitted: "The CDC recommended in April that people wear cloth face coverings in public when it's difficult to be socially distant."

That's why Joe Biden was not wearing a mask standing at a podium in a cornfield on camera. When you watch TV news, remember that someone is standing behind those cameras. The studio is filled with staff. Yet the news anchors are not wearing masks because they are maintaining social distance.

So Trump follows the CDC guidance. Trump follows the science. Yet, trying to clarify the correct CDC guidance has been twisted into Trump being opposed to wearing masks.

By the way, a president has no power to impose a mandate to wear masks, especially without Congress. Trump refusing to do what he has no power to do is not being against masks.

During the Spanish Flu 100 years ago “ experts” recommended wearing asififity bags, cloth bags containing a foul smelling spice, to ward off the flu. Masks are just a 21st century version of the asfidity bag.

The SCIENCE says that elbow bumping stops the virus, not masks.
