President Trump on Thursday night shared a video of a Florida bar patron attacking face mask-wearing and showing a crowded bar as proof that things are “not that bad guys!”
The video, originally tweeted by Rogan O’Handley and retweeted by the president, shows a man bragging that Florida is one of the “first states to open up” while “Blue States” are “freaking out” because over 87,000 Americans have died from COVID-19 in recent months.
“Look at this bar,” the man says as he turns his camera to show the crowded bar. “We’re all having a good time.”
“Not a single face mask,” he brags. “It’s not that bad guys!”
Uh oh, wouldn’t want the Commies in blue states to see us Floridians all out at bars having a good time with no face masks
Might destroy their narrative that everyone’s gonna die if we don’t live in a bubble forever! pic.twitter.com/kyqK3oVcQf

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious-disease expert, warned senators on Tuesday that the coronavirus will spread further if the country opens up too soon.
Fauci said if federal guidelines to reopen were not followed, “little spikes” would become outbreaks.
He also said the real US death toll is probably higher than the official figure of 80,000.
