Poor quality spray tan count?
 
2020-05-20 4:16:32 PM  
Is this the plant where a worker tested positive and they spent a thorough few hours cleaning?
 
2020-05-20 4:22:02 PM  
Ask?  Insist on it.

Diogenes: Poor quality spray tan count?


I keep saying that this is the main/only reason Trump refuses to wear it. That mask would smear the shiat out of his orange makeup.

Perhaps. But the ear straps would track nicely along the white lines from his eyes to his ears from the goggles.

For years, I have insisted on the proper PPE in my work area irregardless who they are. If there is a refusal, I point them to the nearest exit. Right now, I'm not particularly popular with any of the drivers that come through my plant and I would treat him exactly like I would anyone that steps foot on my floor. The workers should do the same when he walks out on their floor. Make his time there uncomfortable.

Fly the Baby Trump baloon over the plant with a giant facial mask and "MORBIDLY OBESE" stenciled on it.

You mean, make him follow the same rules the rest of civilized people have to follow?

If Trump was planning on wearing a mask - this will really piss him off.  No child likes to be told to do something they were planning on doing.

OtherLittleGuy: Is this the plant where a worker tested positive and they spent a thorough few hours cleaning?


Nope. Cadet Bone Spur will be touring Ford's Rawsonville plant in Ypsilanti. Ford's truck plant in Dearborn and an assembly plant in Chicago, IL are the ones that shut down temporarily today to do some intense disinfecting after one worker in Dearborn and two in Chicago tested positive.
 
2020-05-20 6:03:16 PM  
No mask. No zoom zoom ride in the new Ford truck, Mr. President.

Whats the over/under that, not only will he NOT wear a mask but will state that the employee's asked him not to wear one for covfefe reasons.

"I haven't even thought of it," he said. "It depends. In certain areas I would, in certain areas I don't. I will certainly look at it. It depends: Am I standing right next to everybody or am I spread out? ... We'll see. Where it's appropriate, I would do it, certainly."

"Since you're not wearing a mask, Mr. Preznit, we've sent everybody home for the rest of the day to protect them.  It's the only way to make sure that you don't make them sick, because we need them to run the plant.  You know, for the economy.  So don't expect to see a vibrant, functioning plant filled with workers, because today this plant is a dangerous biomedical hazard site until we disinfect the place after you leave."

I wear a mask whenever I am out of the house. I'd say that roughly half the time it is probably unnecessary from a public safety standpoint, based on the activities I'm doing and how far away other people are. But I wear it anyway, because I'm an adult and I understand the benefits of modeling good behavior.

I'm a better leader than our president, and I'm a pretty farking lousy leader.

"I think it's a masked facility," Trump told reporters at the White House before departing for his trip to Honeywell.

"If it's a masked facility, I will. I don't know if it's a masked facility," he said.

Later, before boarding Air Force 1 to fly to Phoenix, Trump was asked if he had decided to wear a mask at Honeywell's facility.

"No, I haven't decided because I don't know is it a -- if it's a mask environment, I would certainly do that. I'll know when I get there," the president said. "But I would wear it. If it's a mask environment, I would have no problem."


Guess we'll see if his willingness to comply has changed in the last weeks, because it definitely sounds like this is a "masked facility"

Thankfully Trump is known for being respectful of reasonable requests. If the Senate has told him he can do whatever he wants, I'm pretty confident wearing a mask is low on the list of things his nibs will consider.

I also hope someone advises him to take a megadose of hydroxychloroquine to get bigly protection before travel.

How dare a mere woman tell him what to do.  Who does the witch think she is?

No way is he wearing it.

He hasn't even thought of it? Where has he been for the last three months? Here's a clue Skidmark In Chief, right now it's ALWAYS appropriate. Especially for a leader.
Yes your spray on tan might rub off and you won't look as nice for the cameras, but this is more important.

The plant manager won't have a union to protect him when execs at Ford fire him for being disrespectful to a plague rat, so he probably won't push the point.

Does the current state of the Michigan order require masks in places like this? It's really hard to keep up with who has what in place.
 
2020-05-20 7:06:43 PM  
So either the Governor or the Michigan Dept of State can simply tell Trump that he's not allowed to visit, but they're not doing so?

Oh well, another example of cowardice creating missed opportunities. Whitmer's heroic sparkle is starting to wear off.

Go All Mom on The Orange One:
"Old Man, you are not coming in the plant unmasked like that!"
(and I NEVER before have advised anyone to go All Mom.....but this is serious.)

I could see him wearing a mask (a MAGA mask of course).

He'll show up with it on (and it'll look like it's taped down).  He'll leave with it on, and no one will see him  unmasked until he gets some time in the spray booth.
