To: President Donald Trump
From: The mask-wearers
We need to talk about some numbers.
They’re bad. Like, really bad. In Arizona. In Texas and Florida. Pretty much everywhere. Each day brings new and jarring data, including about young people and, especially, about the elderly. You should be worried.
About the coronavirus? No, we know you’re not talking very much about that these days. We’re talking about your poll numbers. You’re in trouble. And we think we have a bold solution:
On Independence Day, tell Americans they need to wear a mask.
It’s a game-changer, a way to turn your worst issue around. Well, maybe your third-worst right now behind the bounty thing and the racism thing. But let’s face it, if a vaccine doesn’t give you something to brag on this fall, this might be the only hope you have with COVID come November.
