A CNN “journalist” complained Saturday after first lady Melania Trump refused to be a virtue-signaling covidiot hypocrite like the network’s beloved Democrat politicians.

As the first lady was walking up to Marine One with President Donald Trump to board it so that they could travel to Georgia to rally on behalf of incumbents Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, she didn’t have a mask on.

Why? Because not only is wearing a mask while social distancing outdoors not required by coronavirus health restrictions — it’s also completely pointless, according to some.

“There’s no need to wear a face mask outdoors if you’re not going to be near other people, experts told,” The Plain Dealer reported in May.

Speaking with the paper, Dr. Elie Saade of University Hospitals said, “I see people wearing it on the street without anybody around them. I don’t think that’s helpful to them or anybody else.”

But wearing a mask while indoors has been widely reported to be important, which is why Melania (and presumably the president as well) quickly donned a mask once she boarded Marine One, in accordance with coronavirus health restrictions.

Both have already had the virus.

Yet here’s how CNN “journalist” Kate Bennett, a White House correspondent for the far-left network, responded to Melania abiding by the dictates of common sense and science:

She was upset that Melania chose to follow the science instead of virtue-signaling like the 16+ Democrat politicians who’ve been caught violating the same coronavirus health restrictions they lecture their constituents about daily.

Responding to Bennett’s tweet, journalist Steve Krakauer sarcastically wrote, “So she wore a mask inside an enclosed location but didn’t performatively wear one while walking outside with no one around her? Fascinating…”

Fascinating indeed.

The latter response showed a picture of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, a virtue-signaling covidiot hypocrite who enjoys haranguing his constituents with lectures about the need to “cancel” everything because of the coronavirus yet saw nothing wrong with attending a crowded Black Lives Matter “protest” this summer while unmasked.

Much like with Garcetti, the facts and actual science didn’t appear to matter much to Bennett, a journalist for “CNN.” All that did seem to matter to her was the narrative.

“I’ll spell it out: she has enormous influence as @flotus. Wearing a mask, outdoors/indoors while in front of cameras, would be an impactful & responsible way to remind Americans that doing so can help prevent the spread of a virus that is currently killing at record pace,” she added in a follow-up tweet.

But critics said that Melania needlessly wearing a mask outdoors would have been nothing but an insincere virtue-signal — something CNN’s known for.


As reported earlier, the first lady had been en route to Georgia. Later that evening President Donald Trump held a rally in Valdosta, and during the rally, Melania briefly took the stage to share a sincere message with the public about the upcoming election in the Peach State.

“It is wonderful to be here with you tonight. Thank you for coming out and supporting us. President Trump continues to fight for you every single day,” she said.

“Do not let your voices be silenced. We must keep our seats in the Senate. It is more important than ever that you exercise your right as an American citizen and vote.”


“Under my husband’s leadership, our borders are safer, global terrorists have been destroyed and historic peace deals in the Middle East have been made. Our nation is respected again, and our allies are now doing their fair share globally. President Trump has brought jobs back to the American people, and opportunities for women have expanded in our workforce,” she continued.

“Our economy has soared, and unemployment has shrunk. When a global pandemic hit the United States last January, my husband put the American people first, and now under this administration — because of our amazing medical capabilities and resources — we are closer than ever to a vaccine that will save millions of lives. Let your voices be heard, Georgia. Get out and vote for Sen. Loeffler and Sen. Perdue. Thank you, and God bless your families.”
