How Trump's promotion of mask stupidity could lose him the election

Thom plus logo Every advanced democracy in the world has its coronavirus epidemic largely under control except the United States. And we're on the verge of melting down again because a substantial minority of Americans simply don't know the basic science of how an epidemic works and why wearing masks is part of breaking the epidemic chain.

Hopefully, you can help your Trumpy friends understand, by sharing this short article with them.

Did I miss your condemnation of the protestors, looters, and rioter's lack of respect for social distancing and proper mask attire during their shoulder to shoulder marches and subsequent invasions of every business that had a glass window? Seems logical that screaming loudly through masks made out of a single layer of cotton or their hundreds of maskless interviews shouting into any convenient reporters microphone only to have that reporter immediately hand the mic to the next protestor would be a very dangerous practice.

If the lockdown/mask mantra was the correct path, we should see millions of new cases of the Chinese virus starting Monday, June 8.

In 2019, when the Pew Research Center released its most recent poll of public trust in the government, only 17 percent of Americans trusted their government. It's so bad that armed protesters have shown up nationwide to protest the "tyranny" of having to wear masks during a pandemic… and have been cheered on by the president of the United States and Fox News.
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
