A leading Republican senator says Donald Trump should start wearing a mask at least some of the time because politics is getting in the way of protecting the American people from Covid-19.

“The stakes are too high for the political debate about pro-Trump, anti-Trump masks to continue,” says Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, the chair of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee that’s currently holding a hearing with top public health expert Anthony Fauci and CDC director Bob Redfield as witnesses.

Alexander had to self-quarantine after he was exposed to a staff member who tested positive. But the senator says he was told by the Senate physician that he was protected, never developing the disease, because the staffer was wearing a mask.

“This small, life-saving practice has become part of the political debate,” Alexander lamented, “that says, if you are for Trump you don’t wear a mask and if you are against Trump you do.”

He continued: “That’s why I’ve suggested that the president occasionally wear a mask, even though in most cases it’s not necessary for him to do so.” (Trump gets a coronavirus test at least once a day.)

“The president has plenty of admirers, they would follow his lead, it would help in this political debate, the stakes are too high for this to continue,” he said.

“It’s also a pretty good way to make a statement,” he added, then going on to mention styles of masks, himself favoring a plaid one, he said, though the graver message about leading by example in order to help prevent transmission came through loud and clear.

Meanwhile, even “Fox and Friends” co-host Steve Doocy is now begging Trump to wear a mask, telling it would set a good example to others. The president has refused to wear a mask out in public.

Doocy said MAGA should now stand for Masks Are Great Again.
