Revealing comments by Trump supporters after the President wears a mask

After President Trump wore a mask during a visit to Walter Reed Hospital (thus turning the visit into a photo op), his supporters, who mocked Joe Biden for wearing a mask and looking silly, are now complimenting Trump for looking good and saying things like this: "Now that Trump finally wore a mask in public, is this the part where liberals CANCEL masks and make the case for how terrible they are?" Nobody's turning against masks because Trump wore one, but his supporters project their reading of everything in terms of Trump onto the "liberals" and call it "Trump derangement syndrome". Such comments make clear who is actually "deranged" by Trump. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 12 July)
