    No. I don’t like the man, but I’m not going there. I want him defeated in an election, not dead or in serious health distress.
    I hope people will finally give up this no mask wearing BS though.

    I probably should have posted it there, in retrospect, but I didn’t really want it to turn into a debate or speculative thread. Just breaking news.

    Something to consider...

    "People with PTSD are facing some issues with wearing a mask while trying to combat the spread of COVID-19.

    Trauma survivors routinely face a bevy of problems other people might not realize. For instance, I know of a veteran who had a panic attack while wearing her mask at the grocery store recently.

    She said it immediately reminded her of when she was deployed in Afghanistan, in a confined situation where she couldn't breathe. The mask was triggering her post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from her service in the military.

    Many people with a history of PTSD are having similar dilemmas. They can choose to wear a mask and have high anxiety or panic, or they can choose not to and then receive glares and shaming comments from others.

    It can feel as if they need to wear a sign over their head letting the public know about their PTSD and why they're choosing not to wear a mask.

    The dilemma is that some who struggle with PTSD face the issue of wearing a mask and have a panic attack, or don’t wear a mask and get shamed for not putting others at risk.

    In the United States, 61 percent of men and 51 percent of women have experienced at least one traumatic event in their life. With these statistics in mind, how do you prioritize safety and still be respectful toward others?

    Unless you have a neon sign lit over your head, how will others know that you do indeed have a medical reason not to wear a mask?

    Here are some common reactions from PTSD survivors when wearing a mask:

    • The mask feels suffocating. A lack of oxygen flow creates immediate fear of impending doom.
    • Seeing a mask on someone else can be a reminder of a perpetrator.
    • The mask prevents being able to read someone else’s lips or facial expressions to be able to interpret a sense of safety or need to self-protect.
    • The mandate to wear the mask removes a sense of choice in the matter. This lack of choice triggers the loss of control, which is like living a trauma all over again.

    It's not the same for everyone and it's lame to suggest that it's a "minor" inconvenience unless you know everyone's story.

    Since he never advocated that, let us a hope that Globetrotter tries it instead

    You finally making your play after 3 years? I guess Scotty's vivid and constant descriptions of that ass finally overwhelmed you, the "like" she threw you got you feeling frisky eh? That dog don't hunt be we are all watching this shit unfold.
    I wonder what kind of loser creep holds on to a puppet for 3 years...Damn Scotty, this is your fault! you made this loser chase his sicko dreams.
    BTW I have received in the past PMs from her when losers like you go chasing ....fair warning.

    That’s fair and I sympathize with those people. I am horribly claustrophobic and wearing one is hard for me too.

    I'm sure that is what he wanted. Brilliant observation.

    You do know that the only affect masks have is to provide a small amount of protection to people around the wearer, and not to the wearer, herself, right? It's largely pointless among people who are already social distancing, since all it's intended to do is prevent large droplets from being a source of infection. Half of the studies that refer to mask-wearing say it has no effect, at all.

    And? Drama much? Airlifted typically indicates an emergency. In this case, it was basic transportation.

    If you touch something that has the virus on it, the mask can prevent you from directly touching your mouth or nose, and giving it a pathway to the lungs.

    So they can feel sorry for him? If he’s really infected, Im sure many are just laughing at him for not taking caution during his rallies. Someone needs to give him a shot of Clorox.
