President Trump and first lady Melania have publicly encouraged people to wear masks.
“We’re asking everybody that when you are not able to socially distance, wear a mask, get a mask,” the president said in July. “Whether you like the mask or not, they have an impact, they’ll have an effect, and we need everything we can get.”
Apatow’s tweet omitted any mention of the numerous Democratic leaders who have been caught violating their own coronavirus recommendations and restrictions, including mask wearing. They include House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), San Francisco mayor London Breed (D), New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D), and Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl (D).
Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx have also been caught failing to adhere to their own pandemic recommendations.
