Former VP Joe Biden called Donald Trump an “absolute fool” for not wearing a face mask on Memorial Day. The remarks came after Trump poked fun at our next President for wearing a mask at a Memorial Day commemoration in Wilmington, Del., on Monday.
“He’s a fool, an absolute fool to talk that way,” Mr. Biden said in an interview with Dana Bash of CNN.
Asked during the interview whether wearing a mask projected strength or weakness, Mr. Biden responded “leadership.”
“Presidents are supposed to lead, not engage in folly and be falsely masculine,” he said. “It reminds me of the guys that I grew up with playing ball. They’d walk around with a ball in their hand, but they didn’t like to hit very much.”
