Video: Mark Meadows tells reporters he won’t ‘talk through a mask’

  • White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on Monday declined to wear a mask when addressing reporters on Capitol Hill. 
  • Walking away without answering any questions, he said, “I’m not going to talk through a mask.”
  • Journalists who cover Capitol Hill lawmakers are calling on congressional leaders to improve access to coronavirus testing and contact tracing, and to wear masks when talking to members of the media.
  • But Meadows, like President Donald Trump and others who work in the White House, continue to flout public health guidelines amid the world’s worst COVID-19 outbreak.

President Donald Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows refused to wear his mask on Monday while addressing reporters on Capitol Hill and walked off without taking any questions. 

During the encounter, a CNN congressional reporter, Kristin Wilson, asked Meadows to keep his face covered while speaking, according to Washington Post reporter Seung Min Kim. But Meadows pulled a microphone-outfitted podium closer to himself and took off his mask, to the concern of journalists. 

“Well, I’m more than 10 feet away,” he said.

Seconds later, Meadows put his mask back on and stalked away from the group.

“I’m not going to talk through a mask,” he said.

This incident occurred on the first day of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s confirmation hearings for Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

Health experts have noted that the coronavirus is known to travel several feet in the air, especially indoors, and that mask-wearing is one of the effective ways to prevent transmission. Already, the United States has reported more than 7.7 million cases and 214,000-plus deaths, based on data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

Meadows’ refusal comes as representatives for journalists covering Capitol Hill lawmakers are

2021 Acura MDX new interior design teased in latest video

The 2021 Acura MDX will debut in prototype form next week October 14, but that’s not stopping Acura from releasing a teaser video of the next-gen MDX’s classy, new interior. Acura’s flagship SUV is a solid contender in the three-row, seven-seat luxury segment, but the outgoing third-gen MDX’s lackluster interior is unworthy of praise.

All of that changes in the fourth-gen 2021 Acura MDX. Destined to arrive in North America by early or mid-2021, Acura claims its newest MDX is the most premium (i.e. the most luxurious) and highest-performing seven-seat SUV in the carmaker’s history. According to Acura, the incoming MDX prototype is worthy of becoming a flagship model with a fine blend of innovative design, better premium materials, and a bevy of class-leading tech features.

Based on Acura’s latest teaser video, the new MDX’s cabin is a sight to behold. The vehicle has a new Acura Precision Cockpit featuring a fully digital instrument display. Meanwhile, the central tunnel is home to a new drive mode feature, while the dashboard is flanked by a new HD infotainment system. The wider and lower instrument panel is accentuated by hand-wrapped leather, French stitching, and open-pore wood accents.

It’s hard to miss those new perforated Acura sport seats which, according to Acura, features a more sculpted form and quilted stitching in all three rows. The seats are also wider than before, while the front massaging seats will melt the stress away as you drive. Driving music is courtesy of an ELS Studio 3D ‘Signature Edition’ audio system with 25 speakers. Also new in the MDX is LED interior ambient lighting.

It all looks mightily good from our perspective. With its new exterior design and a brand spanking new interior, the 2021 Acura MDX is upping the ante against its main competitors like the

U.S. President Donald Trump gestures upon return to the White House from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on October 05, 2020 in Washington, DC. Trump spent three days hospitalized for coronavirus. Trump’s recent video led to speculation about a green screen.

In the video, Trump stands in the White House grounds. There was immediate speculation that the president was not in fact outside but had used a green screen to produce a false background.

The Claim:

Social media users raised the question of a green screen once Trump tweeted his video yesterday. The claim soon gained traction on Twitter and some prominent people began asking the question. Apparent distortions in the video, like the shadows and the background appearing to be on a loop, prompted the comments.

2022 Acura MDX’s Interior Revealed in Photos and Video

We can see the three-row SUV’s new cabin has a more upscale design, larger infotainment screen, and a digital gauge cluster.

  • Photos and video tease the new upscale interior of the 2022 Acura MDX, revealing richer materials, a larger infotainment screen, the brand’s first digital gauge cluster, and a 25-speaker audio system.
  • The fourth generation of the MDX will be revealed next week and go on sale early next year.
  • Last year Acura sold about 50,000 MDXs, which was nearly a third of its total sales volume.

Today Acura released teaser images and a Tron-style video revealing the interior of the new 2022 MDX, which will go on sale early next year. The fourth generation of the three-row SUV will be unveiled on October 14, and Acura says it will be the most premium and performance-focused MDX its history. These overproduced illustrations seem to support that claim.

For now, Acura isn’t very forthcoming with information, but says that the SUV’s new dash is wider and lower, leather-wrapped, and trimmed with open-pore wood. Like the RDX and TLX, it will have a single oversize infotainment screen, which Acura calls “ultrawide” without giving dimensions. It appears to be the largest in the brand’s lineup and will be controlled with a touchpad on the console.

The MDX will also feature Acura’s first digital gauge cluster, which will have two configurations, and a 25-speaker ELS Studio 3D premium audio system with integrated LED ambient lighting. Its new sport seats will be heated and cooled and will offer multiple massage settings. Perforated leather with contrasting stitching and piping will cover all three rows. Acura calls the elaborate design stitched into the upholstery “curvilinear quilting.”

There’s seating for seven; however, the second-row seat appears to be split 40/20/40, so we suspect the center
