Challenged for failing to protect David Attenborough by wearing a mask, Johnson flails

Another day, another car-crash interview for Boris Johnson.

Today he was challenged over his decision not to wear a mask while sitting next to “national treasure” David Attenborough, who is 95 years old and therefore highly vulnerable to Covid-19.

Just because Johnson has been vaccinated, it doesn’t mean he cannot pass the virus on to other people and his masklessness has attracted huge criticism on the social media.

But just look at his face when an interviewer raised the matter. It seems he did not have the self-awareness to realise people would talk about it, and he quite clearly panics at the thought of the harm he has done to his own public image.

His answer, when it eventually came, was infantile:

Still, it could be worse.

Has anyone told Johnson what M. Macron did while he was enjoying his hangover nap (still maskless) next to Mr Attenborough while the speeches droned on? This could not have happened if he had only put a piece of cloth over his face:*

*Amazingly, to avoid criticism from the hard-of-thinking, I have to make it clear that this image is satirical.
