Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) attacked Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin for wearing a mask and shield in the Philippines, where they are required.
Our @SecDef is vaccinated
But he arrives in the Philippines wearing a mask AND a face shield

The Philippines Requires Masks And Face Shields In Public
Bill Kristol replied that the Philippines requires masks and shields in public:
The Philippine government requires a mask and shield in public places (h/t @janecoaston). @SecDef is being courteous and respectful of his host government. An apology from @marcorubio to @SecDef would be appropriate. https://t.co/AmRdg23for

Marco Rubio Looks Like A Moron Engaging In Cynical Anti-Mask COVID Theater
Marco Rubio is obviously worried about what could be the most difficult reelection campaign of his career against Rep. Val Demings. Rubio is doing what he does best. He is pandering to the lowest common denominator. Sen. Rubio also still wants to be president in the worst way imaginable.
Rubio is so desperate to court the Trump voters in his state and set himself up for another presidential campaign that he is tweeting without knowing the COVID protocols in foreign countries.
Rubio has gone all-in on the anti-vaccine, anti-mask, pro-death Republican cult.
Marco Rubio is trying to save his seat, and in the process revealing why he is a national embarrassment.
