Making light of sensitive situations is not something new for Mr President but in a meeting on Wednesday, he claimed that he hasn’t “touched his face” for weeks.

Now we might need to check our dictionary for what is strictly considered a face, but if we go by general definition, then his statement is indeed not true.

In a meeting with airline executives that was called to discuss the urgent matter of the coronavirus epidemic in the United States, Donald Trump remarked, “I haven’t touched my face in weeks. Been weeks. I miss it.”If you don’t know the background, then what Mr Trump is trying to say here is that he is following the preventative measures. Researchers and medical experts have recommended that people should avoid too much contact with their own faces because it is dangerous.

But stating that you have gone “weeks” without touching your face is far-fetched, and experts believe that Donald Trump should stop making light of such a situation. Magazines and photographers were also quick to respond with pictures of Mr President touching his face quite a few times. One particular picture from the meeting with the WhiteHouse Coronavirus Task Force on March 2 stands out, proving him wrong.

Other instances where his hands are making contact with his face from recent public appearances were also shared.However, not everyone was critical, and like always, Trump’s supporters did not disappoint. They came forward to defend their leader, saying it could be a joke. And while we agree that it might have been said humorously, we should also look at the statistics that indicate that more than 3100 patients have lost their lives due to the outbreak while thousands are still affected.

So when the President of the most powerful country in the world thinks it is okay to joke about a preventative measure regarding coronavirus, it sets a poor example.
