White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on Monday walked away from reporters who objected to him taking off his mask before speaking to them.
“I’m not going to talk through a mask,” the Trump deputy said before walking off in a huff.

Meadows has been in close proximity to several White House officials, including President Donald Trump, who’ve tested positive for COVID-19 in recent weeks.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported recently that Meadows hosted a “lavish” wedding for his daughter in late May, in violation of local COVID-19 public health restrictions.
