‘I swear, these people’: WH chief of staff blasted for not wearing a mask after being close to COVID-positive president

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows just concluded a press briefing from outside the White House. His remarks are being criticized, after he refused to give any information about President Donald Trump's health after testing positive for coronavirus, refusing to discuss a timeline of the president's travels and contacts, and refusing to wear a mask.


Presidential historian Michael Beschloss issued criticism of Meadows.

Here's Meadows refusing to give the American people any accounting of the president's actions.

Meadows is also being roundly blasted after being in close proximity to President Donald Trump: Meadows wore no mask. (He was also in close proximity to Counselor to the President Hope Hicks, who tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday. Meadows claims Hicks was not tested until Thursday, which contradicts every report.)

Meadows, who on Sept. 16 predicted a coronavirus vaccine "potentially by the end of September," clearly has little understanding of the science of transmission, incubation, infection, and testing. He told reporters he did not need to wear a mask because he has been tested.

Many are outraged.
