“It gives him a feeling of security”
October 19, 2020
Democratic candidate Joe Biden was pictured wearing two face masks at a campaign stop in North Carolina over the weekend, reenforcing recent criticisms made by President Trump that his rival uses them as a safety blanket.
Biden was pictured wearing a reusable a cloth mask on top of a regular surgical mask:

President Trump commented at a rally last month that he doubts anyone knows “a man that likes a mask as much” as Biden.
“It gives him a feeling of security,” the president said adding “If I was a psychiatrist, I’d say this guy has some big issues.”
During the first debate, Trump again raised the mask issue, saying “I don’t wear a mask like him. Every time you see him, he’s got a mask. He could be speaking 200 feet away from him and he shows up with the biggest mask I’ve ever seen.”
In another speech, Trump claimed that Biden doesn’t care about Americans, only about himself, and avoiding the virus.
Trump told the crowd “By the way, did you see one of the last big rallies he had? A reporter came up to him to ask him a question, he said, ‘No, no, no. Stand back, put on your mask, put on a mask. Have you been tested? I’m way far away from those other people.’ That’s what he said, ‘I’m going to be okay.’ He’s not worried about you. He’s not worried about the people out there.”
Biden has previously been seen wearing two masks:

Leftists take note, two masks is now the norm:
I hope all you Lefty mask wearers noticed the "Head Lefty" Joe Biden is now wearing TWO MASKS just to out-do your Lefty-ness. You all better start wearing two masks too, or else the Leftard mob will expel you as "not caring".https://t.co/cmc6doVSzm

I really hope to see Halloween costume photos posted of men dressed as Biden. They wear a suit/tie, a wig of gray hair, two face masks, a button that says “Biden for Senate”, and a button that says “Harris/Biden”. #MAGA2020  #KAG2020  #election

It’s catching on…
Or is it just a way of avoiding answering awkward questions?
