When you look at someone who refuses to wear a mask, you are looking at the face of the Idiot Jerk's base. And they are angry. The core of his base has always been angry. Through him, they vent their anger... and he's losing. That makes them angrier. His not wearing a mask legitimized their beliefs in him. The pandemic is a hoax, they believe... and then yesterday he wore a mask in public. That will make them angrier. They will think he caved... and he did, out of desperation. While I can stand there and count to 10, they cannot. They can't even get to 5 before their anger boils over. They're furious because their savior is turning out to be a loser... just like them.
Here's a little bright spot. Another one of my dahlias.
And remember, all we have to do is count to 10, and wonder if they'll even make it to 5.
