Superspreader! And lots of seniors too 🙁

TRUMP FOREVERMORE

I see a problem.

Love to see a physician flagrantly disregarding public health recommendations.

Ya he’s a bone doctor and people need to get off that mask bull

When was this? Many of these people look like they may be in high a risk group! Zero masks? There is an actual pandemic.

If I'd known we wouldn't be masked raped at the door, I may have come.

Go Dem's 🇺🇸

Shhhh, let Darwin do his thing. These fools think their dear leader knows better.

Super spreader event

Glad you like to eat s**t Senator.

No wonder Texas is on it’s way to being No. 1 in the US for Covid cases.

You're a doctor, in a crowded place with no masks in sight, during a pandemic? Yikes.

You are a Doctor where is your mask and no one is Social distancing. WHY

Great picture! So good to see you!

Wow, as a Dr., I'm sure you'll volunteer for the contract tracing that will be going on there shortly.

Sad to see a doctor and elected leader not following public health guidelines. Masks and Social Distancing are to protect others not you. It’s Selfless and not Selfish, why is it so hard for so many to not want to do something to help others?

Please vote for Biden/ Democrats

Just went through the 71 photos on the Robertson County GOP Website. The Guest Speaker Pete Sessions ! Bill Flores ! Tom Holloway ! Hayden Paul ! My Texas State Senator , Special Dan Patrick Manure Spreader, Dr Charles Schwertner ! Special Guest and the Father of the Future of the Republican Party Rafael Cruz!!! All Must Be Evaluated for Mental Health And Corona Exposure!

Zero masks. Shame on you

Yeah let’s just get real about something else. Besides everything else a Trump has done in his Wotless see a 47 months versus some other idiots 47 years. Along with getting everything that everybody needed because of the pandemic yes like I said the more you test the more you’re going to find but until you can display all the numbers you’re full of BS so all I’m saying is there is a cure and it’s going to Along with everything else that he’s got here at operation warp speed. You people need to give thanks for thanks it’s needed he’s done one hell of a job pull your head out of your backside and realize that let’s get on with our lives because he’s right the cure cannot be worse. Go trump 2020

Not a mask in sight, Doctor? Lord, Republicans are really killing themselves off, aren't they?
