Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf just can’t separate himself from politics and his power as Lord of the Pandemic right now.
Over the weekend, Wolf couldn’t even wish President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump a speedy recovery from their COVID-19 infections without mentioning face masks. It kinda sounds like Wolf’s actually blaming Trump for getting infected.
“Frances and I wish President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump a speedy recovery,” Wolf tweeted.
But he just couldn’t resist leaving it at that. It’s almost too human of a response.
In that same tweet, Wolf said, “We’re all in this together. Let’s all mask up and do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.”
Again with the masks. The man has no scruples.
While the first half of Wolf’s tweet is somewhat genuine, the second half reads like he’s blaming Trump, himself, for catching COVID. Why not just leave it at that first sentence? Save the mask lecture for another tweet, perhaps another day.
At the very least, the timing of that part of the message is poor. When the tweet was sent, at 1:44 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2, Trump was on his way to Walter Reed hospital to undergo treatments for the COVID infection.
Wolf’s tweet was akin to calling an ambulance for someone who’s sick or injured and then lecturing them on how they could have avoided the whole situation if they’d just listened to you.
Every chance Wolf’s had to push his mask policy in Pennsylvania – once he settled on one – he’s done so.
But remember, it took a while for Wolf to even settle on a mask policy in Pennsylvania.
What was once a mandate then became merely a suggestion.
As this policy was evolving, we tracked all the statements Wolf and his administration made on mandatory masks.
