A number of students are calling for the president of the University of Notre Dame, Fr. John Jenkins, to resign after being pictured without a mask during a White House event at the Rose Garden nominating Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. 

I fully support this petition. But it has nothing to do with the mask. Let’s just call it the right thing for the wrong reasons.

Ironically, I believe Fr. Jenkins has been wearing a metaphorical mask for years so it’s funny that taking one off got him into trouble.
