Twitter critics were appalled Monday when the first thing President Donald Trump did when he returned to the White House from Walter Reed hospital was to take off his face mask and jam it, frowning, into his pocket.

Trump, who is still considered contagious, had gloated the previous day in a video tweet that he “gets it” now that he has COVID-19

No, he doesn’t, a flood of critics shot back.

Many remarked that the president’s breathing appeared labored as he stood at the top of the White House steps before entering and that he was trying not to show it.

Others expressed fears about the risk of contagion Trump now poses to the household staff, his security detail, aides, officials, the press and members of the public he may decide to meet.

“Epidemiologists just want to vomit,” tweeted Dr. Eric Fiegl-Ding, a senior fellow of the Federation of American Scientists. “What White House staffer would still wanna go to work tomorrow?”

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden earlier urged Trump to “listen to the scientists,” adding: “Support masks.”

Now that President Trump is busy tweeting campaign messages, I would ask him to do this: Listen to the scientists. Support masks. Support mask mandates nationwide.

CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta called Trump “coronavirus in chief.”

Given a chance to make amends, a chance to get it right & encourage people to take the virus seriously, to wear masks & socially distance, Trump…takes off his mask. https://t.co/dK56D9PsWZ

Note: President Trump, who has COVID-19, did not put his mask back on when he stepped inside the White House

Trump gets back to the White House, and takes off his mask for the public to see. He has employees standing next to him who he is exposing. He does not care.

Trump is basically filming a campaign commercial outside of the WH without a mask in the presence of photographers. Let me repeat: the president has coronavirus and is walking around without a mask.

Sometimes you hate to be right

Trump, gasping and on steroids, returns to the White House

And takes off his mask

Despite the fact that he’s probably contagious with #COVID19

Which has killed 210,000 Americans and made his staff sick

He just doesn’t care#WhiteHouseViruspic.twitter.com/3x6pSVPxTg

Looks like he’s having a hard time controlling his breathing and getting a good breath, too, during that weird, long, balcony stand, continually adjusting his coat, etc.

All so very weird.
