"Why is the president asking attendees to assume a risk?"

“The White House has really an irreconcilable conflict of interest,” Reiner said. “The president is running for re-election and they have to pretend that we’re moving back to normal. And if the president or vice president is seen wearing a mask in public, that looks decidedly abnormal. It’s a conflict of interest. How dare the president or the vice president go into a crowd and not promote the use of masks.”…

“I think if the risk is low and if it’s safe to gather in large numbers at a political rally I would just challenge the president to drop that disclaimer, drop that proviso to the attendees,” Reiner said. “Why is the president asking attendees to assume a risk? Look, the CDC today issued guidance on large gatherings, and they warned about it. Tulsa is a place which actually today had a record number of cases. So, the president is holding a rally in a hot zone. That’s how you propagate the pandemic.”
