Fox News Chris Wallace said on Friday that Donald Trump’s testing positive for coronavirus teaches the lesson that the President should “wear the damn mask.”
Wallace explained his view on Friday’s “America’s Newsroom” program.
“In terms of what went on in the hall, it was curious. The Biden camp and Mrs. Biden, Senator Chris Coons of Delaware, all their people all came in wearing masks and wore them throughout the entire debate.
Wallace continued, “The Trump family came in, I’m told, wearing masks but then took them off once they sat down in their seats.”

Wallace Claims Health Officials Offered the First Family Masks But Were Waved Away
“That actually violated the rules of the Cleveland Clinic, which was in charge of all the safety issues inside the hall, which were that everybody except for the president, vice president, and I were not supposed to wear masks, I mean we’re supposed to wear masks,” Wallace continued.
“We were the only ones told we were not to wear masks,” he added.
Wallace continued to explain that health officials offered masks to the first family but were ignored.
“Actually a safety person, a health person from the Cleveland Clinic came up to the first family when they were seated and offered them masks in case they didn’t have them and they were waved away,” Wallace said.
Chris Wallace just said, "Wear the damn mask!"
Now he's blasting Dr. Scott Atlas. WTF?
Wallace is unhinged. Trump broke him.

Wallace: ‘There Was a Difference In the Way the Two Families and Their Camps Treated the Health Safety Regulations’
“People in the hall noticed that they weren’t wearing masks, and everybody else in the hall was wearing a mask,” the debate moderator continued.
“When the debate ended, Mrs. Trump came over, walked past me,” he said.
“She was not wearing a mask. Mrs. Biden walked past me to her husband, and she was wearing a mask. So there was a difference in the way the two families and their camps treated the health safety regulations inside the hall.”
“Wear the damn mask and follow the science.” – Chris Wallace on Fox News just now. He also mentions that the First Family was offered masks but declined and that they were the only ones not wearing masks inside.

‘Wear the Damn Mask’
Wallace opined, “I’ve always been disturbed, frankly, that people think the mask is a political issue and wearing the mask or not wearing the mask says something about your politics. It’s a safety issue.”
“If there is one lesson from today, it’s here is the president of the United States who lives in the biggest bubble that exists on the planet, and he got it. Through no fault of his own,” Wallace said.
“And so the answer is wear the damn mask,” he concluded.
