14. And he refused because of his makeup

The masks came off orange and he'd have been removing it in public to speak at a lectern regularly.

Republicans still would have bitched about her response to it and tried to score political points. But all the real guidelines would have been coming from medical experts and she would have gotten key Republicans to agree that we should just listen to the experts. Instead you had Trump being threatened by not knowing shit so he pushed Hydroxychoriquin and then Ivermectin. Then he thought he would score political points about schools being closed and vaccine mandates. All of that could have just been calm and accepted without Trump.

None of the chaos and unrest around Covid would have happened if anyone else would have been president. Hell, here in Michigan, we had armed militias trying to kill our governor over Covid rules.
