More than 1,500 guests watched, laughed and cheered on President Donald Trump from the South Lawn of the White House Thursday night, the vast majority without masks or six feet of separation.
Photos show Gov. Tate Reeves was one of them.
The snapshots, which quickly circulated through social media, serve as a direct contrast to a photo Reeves himself tweeted before Trump addressed the crowd: a selfie with First Lady Elee Reeves that showed both of them wearing masks that support the president.
That visual evidence marks the third time since June that Reeves chose not to wear a mask at a public event, though Thursday night had by far the largest crowd.
Some Mississippians — still required to wear masks until Monday — call it a double standard.
