There are so many candidates for this column that it's hard to choose. But our Vice President, named to lead the U.S. response to the coronavirus outbreak, was apparently the only person in America who didn't know you need a mask to enter a hospital. Was he worried, "Does this mask make me look fat?" He then maintained that because he is regularly tested, he didn't think he needed one. Yeah, just try getting past Gelson's cart kid with that one!
When the people who are allegedly managing this crisis are showing up perfectly coiffed, aren't staying home, and don't want to annoy themselves with uncomfortable masks, they undermine their credibility. I'm still complying, but in spite of them, not because of them.
Meanwhile, next week: With everyone having to wear masks, where is the bailout for the lipstick industry??? Inquiring minds want to know.
