He crossed the line with this…
In a recent internet interview with Dr. Howard Bauchner, editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Medical Association, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield strongly insisted that President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence wear masks to encourage other Americans to do so as well.
According to Breitbart, Redfield stated, “The data is clearly there that masking works whether it’s a face covering, whether it’s a simple surgical mask or whether it’s obviously a mask used in a clinical setting.”
He then said, “I do think if we could get everybody to wear masks right now — I really do think over the next four, six, eight weeks, we could bring this epidemic until control.”
Then when discussing President Trump wearing a mask in the public for the first time recently, Redfield said, “Glad to see the president wear a mask this week and the vice president. Clearly, in their situation, they could easily justify that they don’t need to because of all the testing around them, and they know they’re not infected. But we need them to set the example, as you said, for other individuals. This is not a political issue.”
