Kayleigh, the President’s tone on the virus this week seems to have changed.
[He’s advocated a few different times for Americans to wear masks. He said that the virus would ~ or the pandemic would get worse before it gets better. He cancelled most of the convention ~ or certainly the Florida part ~ yesterday. All of these things were bad two months ago ~ even longer than that ~ and the science on masking has been clear for several months.]
What changed this week? Why did his tone change?
There has been no change. The President said, on March 31st, before there was even a recommended but not required guidance given by the CDC on mask wearing ~ the President already said, if you want to wear a mask, wear a mask. It doesn’t harm anyone. And that was before ~ that was when our scientists even were ~ some of them were saying don’t wear masks.
So the President has been consistent on this. He wore a mask back at the Ford facility. He carries it around in his pocket. He showed it to you multiple times. He hasn’t changed. In fact ~ and just speaking on COVID, generally ~ the way I’ve heard him talk privately in the Oval Office is the way he’s talking out here.
The only thing that’s changed is the President taking dozens and dozens and dozens of your questions each and every day because he felt the best way to get information to the American people was for him to be out here, answering your questions and providing this directly.
[Reporter:] The other part of the question though wasn’t just about masking ~ although, I would argue that if you look back and see when he called it “politically correct,” for example, that wasn’t exactly agreeing with the science of wearing masks.
But setting that aside, he ~
[Kayleigh McEnany:] No, but let’s not set that aside. Because in that incident, when he used the words “politically correct,” it was in reference ~ I believe you were asking him a question ~ was it?
[Reporter:] I was.
[Kayleigh McEnany:] And ~ right. And you were standing outside, and you’d been tested, and you were wearing a mask, and he couldn’t hear your questions, so he asked for you momentarily to pull down the mask. So that was the specific context, and context does matter here.
[Reporter:] Okay, well, I didn’t mean to engage on that, but I was standing around other reporters and using the same mic that other people were using. That’s why I left my mask on.
[Kayleigh McEnany:] Right. Well, he could not hear your question, and he asked for you temporarily to pull it down. Everyone in the press pool is tested, so, scientifically, you were not in a compromising position. But he ~ he hasn’t changed his tone.
But this President ~ the reason he wants to bring back these briefings is get information out there like: We’ve done 52.9 million tests nationwide, 187 emergency use authorations [sic] ~ use auth- ~ use authorizations, excuse me, for test manufacturing, 20 million swabs per month, used the DPA over 20 times ~ all of these great successes of this administration, like distributing 31,000 cases of remdesivir, enough to treat nearly 200,000 patients. None of this is getting covered.
And you’ve got the best messenger, the duly elected President of the United States, talking directly to the American people and getting extraordinary ratings as they tune in to get information from their leader.
