While Brit Hume enjoys the luxury of working safely at home, he has lectured the rest of us to go out and risk death and now he’s mocking Joe Biden for wearing a mask.
Brit Hume’s Twitter feed is full of fuming about stay-at-home orders even as he works safely from his own home until at least June 15. Yet I could not find a single tweet mentioning his going out to a crowded beach, pool, movie theater or church this Memorial Day Weekend to show us all how safe it is. Even if those venues are closed in his state, he surely has the means to travel to one where they’ve reopened.
After all, this is a guy who thinks it “entirely reasonable” that seniors should be willing to die for the sake of revitalizing the economy. You’d think he’d feel a sense of obligation to show us all how it’s done, given that he is squarely in that age group.
But, apparently, Hume is all in on a pro-death agenda for others, only. How else would somebody mock a former vice president for modeling the behavior our own CDC recommends? And while the COVID-19 pandemic still rages?
This might help explain why Trump doesn’t like to wear a mask in public. Biden today. pic.twitter.com/9l1gw1ljBE— Brit Hume (@brithume) May 25, 2020
Biden was visiting a cemetery with his wife. Both have been quarantined for weeks. So what others was protecting, pray tell? https://t.co/yR1xbI0V5Q— Brit Hume (@brithume) May 25, 2020
By the way, Hume is clearly not a deeply devoted Trumper. So it’s hard to know why he would mock anyone wearing a mask except out malice and/or a desire to see other people die. #FoxNewsCultureOfDeath.

1. Biden, a political leader, is setting an example. Brit’s Dear Leader by his mask-less poor example has encouraged many into risky mask-less behavior.
2. Typical of Fox News’ data mining, Brit uses a close up, obscuring the context. Other media pictures show Biden came with a security detail/entourage who were in close proximity.
3. Trump’s vanity keeps him from wearing a mask which has led many COVIDIOTs to surmise it is unmanly/unattractive to wear a mask. The cowards are the vain!
Which is ridiculous because a) a mask offers some protection from others; b) unless you’re completely isolating, staying at home does not necessarily eliminate your exposure and, maybe most importantly, c) he was modeling safe practice for the rest of us.
In truth, Fumes is just another Fux partisan hack….with wrinkles. Picture Bill Hemmer or Ed Henry in about 20 years.
