Trump Accuses Joe Biden Of 'Playing Fingers' With His Mask In Bizarre Tweet
President Donald Trump really can't hide his dislike of Joe Biden's treatment for the coronavirus.
Case in point: On Monday, the president published a bizarre tweet indicating that the "Lamestream media" was covering up Biden's masking habits.
The tweet was apparently inspired by a viral video captured on Friday showing the Democratic presidential candidate lowering his mask and coughing into his hand during an election freeze in Las Vegas.
That was clearly not the most hygienic thing Biden could have done, but Trump's complaint just seems a bit insincere considering the president is notoriously mask-averse and has organized events that have turned into super-spreader events. and COVID-19 himself under contract.
Biden, meanwhile, has emphasized the importance of wearing masks to contain the pandemic, and his campaign has been much more diligent about adherence to virus-related health protocols than the Trump team.
No wonder that many Twitter users quickly made fun of Trump's tweet.
Some people were skeptical of Trump's claim for obvious reasons.
One person feared Trump's tweet would inspire followers to continue to ditch their masks.

Some people wondered what "finger play" means.
HuffPost reached out to the Trump campaign for clarity on what "finger play" means, but no immediate response was given.
Writer E. Jean Carroll, who is suing Trump for defamation in a case based on a sexual assault allegation he made against him, had as good a theory as any other.
Sir, you had your "fingers" and hands over women for the past 40 years.
YOU are "the all time low in history". https://t.co/EyiduIBiUA
