Ben Rhodes thought telling Twitter that he forced his three-year-old daughter to wear a mask outside dancing in 80-degree heat was somehow a dunk on people who don’t want to wear masks. Particularly people in the White House.
This was not the slam Ben thought it was.
My three year old daughter just did an outdoor ballet class in 80 degree heat where all the kids wore masks the whole time. Three year olds being more responsible than the White House.

This editor’s 13-year-old son laughed his arse off watching the video of Ben Rhodes weeping the night Trump won the election.
Everyone dropping bombs over my daughter wearing a mask is proving the point. What planet are you living on?

HE’S THE VICTIM.
This proves he doesn’t get the point that using his daughter to make a political statement is what people were dropping bombs on him over. Not that his daughter was forced to wear a mask. Obama sure could pick ’em.
Oh, and about that temperature:
Dude, did y’all commute to Jacksonville for ballet? The high was in the 60s in DC yesterday. pic.twitter.com/AAQocgt17q

We suppose Ben’s daughter could have been dancing somewhere else?
I’m so sorry for the three year-olds. They gave little to zero risk. Sounds like abuse to me.

Well that's just silly, because we all know a 3 year old is so mask responsible. Stop clowning

Why would you make her do that?! 3 Years Old!?!?!
I don’t believe your statement is coming off here as you planned.

Your three year old is probably smarter than you. But nice attempt at writing more fiction.

Normal people don’t exploit their children as political props…

There it is.
Odd that we had to spell it out for him.
My 11year old twins played tennis all summer without masks and never got sick. I’m pretty sure they had more fun.

Your uptick in bitterness must mean they are close.

Annnd we’re officially dead now.
Thanks, Twitter person.
You suck for subjecting your 3 year old daughter to this.
