A CNN reporter faced intolerance over her face mask and ethnicity at beaches in the South over the weekend.
CNN’s Natasha Chen said that she was interviewing the mayor of Tybee Island on Saturday when she was jeered for wearing a face covering.
“Somebody saw us and the mayor and I were both wearing masks and they yelled at us to take them off,” Chen recalled on Sunday. “Somebody claimed that sunlight is the best disinfectant.”
In a subsequent report, Chen revealed that she had also been harassed while working in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
“Within the past hour, there was a person who was not happy with what we were covering,” Chen said. “We’ve been talking to people — who have all been really nice, by the way — talking to us about how they’re social distancing, what they’re seeing with the crowds on the beach, but this person didn’t like it.”
“In addition to shouting at us while I had a mask on, he said to me to get out of his country with an expletive and that I was responsible for this, referring to my ethnicity,” she added. “So, that wasn’t nice.”

I proved I was all there, because I aced it,” Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday night. “I aced the test... I took it at Walter Reed Medical Center in front of doctors and they were very surprised. They said, ‘That’s an unbelievable thing. Rarely does anyone do what you just did.'"

‘I hear from psychiatrists weekly’ who warn about the president’s ‘mental incapacity’: Trump biographer
Trump biographer Michael D'Antonio told CNN on Friday that he's been in regular contact with professional psychiatrists who believe President Donald Trump lacks the mental capabilities to handle his job.
During a panel discussion about the president's mental health, D'Antonio spilled the beans about what some experts are telling him they see in the president's behavior and speech patterns.
"I hear from psychiatrists on a weekly basis about a different measure of the president, and that's whether he suffers from mental incapacity," D'Antonio explained. "That's a very different category and goes to whether he can perform his job."
