Sorry Pat Neville: Trump Sends Face Mask Appeal To Supporters

  • 7 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
Face masks. How do they work?

Yesterday evening, President Donald Trump sent out an appeal to his email fundraising list, which plenty of Democrats subscribe to just to read the increasingly colorful pitches coming from the embattled President’s campaign–but this time, not requesting funds. This was a request by President Trump for his supporters to wear face masks. You know, that simple step Trump has scoffed at for months, helping turn the issue of wearing one into a partisan circus instead of a deadly serious matter of public health.

Those days are over, nation! The subject of last night’s missive: “Patriots Wear Face Masks.”

I know how difficult the past few months have been. Your unwavering support during this time has not gone unnoticed.

Sen. Cory Gardner, he’s talking to you.

I am writing to you now, not to ask for a contribution, but to ask for your help.

We are all in this together, and while I know there has been some confusion surrounding the usage of face masks, I think it’s something we should all try to do when we are not able to be socially distanced from others.

“Some confusion surrounding the use of face masks.”

I don’t love wearing them either. Masks may be good, they may be just okay, or they may be great. They can possibly help us get back to our American way of life that so many of us rightfully cherished before we were so terribly impacted by the China Virus.

Just in case you thought you would get through this email without being offended. Sorry!

My feeling is, we have nothing to lose, and possibly everything to gain, including the next chapter to our country, and to keep things open whether it be schools or businesses.

I recently tweeted that many view wearing a mask as a patriotic act, and there is no one more patriotic than me and you. Why not give it a shot!

If you would like more information on the benefits of wearing a face mask, or information on how to get one, please follow this link. >>

Thank you,


Donald J. Trump
President of the United States

Shameless though it may be, if convincing some number of Republicans to abandon Colorado House Minority Leader Patrick Neville’s “mask resistance” campaign and just wear the damn things already results in fewer people catching and spreading the pandemic, that is an objectively good thing regardless of how we get there. If the only way to convince the GOP base to put on their face masks is by making them think it was Trump’s idea…sure. Whatever it takes. This is a crisis.

Americans aware of just how shameless this is, which is most of us, are already wearing ours.

  1. There's only one possible reason for this change in approach: Trump and his goons must literally be afraid they're losing their own voters. They're killing them with COVID, and they're scaring them into not voting by mail. Great job, team!

    1. and they're scaring them into not voting by mail.

      Here is my hope. GOPers don't sign up to vote by because of FRAUD!
      But, then on November 3rd, they see Fat Donnie™ going down in flames and say to themselves: "Need to stay safe. Too risky to go to the polling place. My vote is not that important."

  2. Wondering how the anti-maskers will respond to Trump shifting positions.  Will they:

    Object, saying Trump is getting fooled by the Deep State? 

    Agree that it is okay to wear masks now that it is Patriotic? 

    Acquiesce to Trump’s request BECAUSE it is only a request, not excessive government interference with FREEDOM?

    Only wear masks that Trump for President has for sale?

    Look for masks which have been soaked in hydroxychloroquine?
