Would it be so humiliating at this point for Trump to wear a mask that he would rather resign?

Like a childish bully, he's mocked Joe Biden for wearing a mask. He's said it makes Biden look weak. He's ordered female reporters to remove their masks. He's suggested people that wear masks do so to protest against him. He has tried to include mask-wearing in a culture war about freedom and about opening the economy. He has inspired crazies around the nation who will yell, rant and punch rather than be told to wear a mask.

Now, the spread of the virus is getting out of control, Mike Pence and others in his circle have done a 180 and have become pro-masks. But where does that leave Trump? Increasingly, he will be under pressure to wear one, and will face more criticism for not wearing one. He is the president and could have saved tens of thousands of lives, simply by wearing a mask and insisting everyone else does.

But he would feel humiliated by wearing one. He is Trump after all. He would see it as admitting he was wrong, or as bending down to the demands of others. He is the king, and he thinks he is too good for that. He is above everyone else. He fears he will look weak. He fears he will be the one who will be mocked. And he fears his makeup will come off. It is all about his vanity. He is a vain little man who would feel small if he wears a mask.

I think that wearing a mask in public just isn't an option for him. It would be so humiliating that he would rather leave office than do so. But at some point, he might finally realize how stupid he looks without a mask. I hope Democrats and the media keep pressuring him to wear one. It is another reason for him to resign. Perhaps one of the most important ones.

1. He painted himself into a corner by making a BFD about not wearing a mask.

Now he can't wear one without looking weak, and looking weak is the thing that scares him the most. Also, it would smear his orange makeup which is probably why he wouldn't do it in the first place.

5. Trump has no shame.

If he decides to wear a mask, nothing he said previously will matter. Wearing a mask will suddenly the biggest macho thing ever. He won't even acknowledge that he ever said anything about masks before. He won't say, "I changed my mind," but "I never said that."

And his open-mouthed fans will nod and put on a mask and say he's god.

7. A mask messes up his makeup

People will die because Trump doesn’t want to disturb his orange layer.
