President Donald Trump has repeatedly mocked former Vice President Joe Biden and others for wearing masks.
At a campaign rally in Arizona on Wednesday -- at which there was no social distancing and most attendees did not wear masks -- Trump started mocking what he claimed are the mask requirements in California.
"In California, you have a special mask. You cannot, under any circumstances, take it off. You have to eat through the mask," the President said.
He continued: "It's a very complex mechanism. And they don't realize, those germs, they go through it like nothing. They look at you with that contraption and they say, 'That's an easy one.
There is no special mask, no special contraption, and Californians are not required to wear masks at all times.
Again, this is not simply incompetence. It's depraved indifference to the lives of Americans.
