A witness says Senator Roger Wicker did not wear his mask 90% of the flight
A passenger on a Delta Airlines flight posted a photo to Twitter of U.S. Senator Roger Wicker (R-Mississippi) with his mask tucked under his chin.
Wicker, an ally of President Donald Trump, was criticized on the social media platform after putting fellow passengers at risk.

An advertising and media specialist for Democrat Mike Espy’s campaign, Matt Harringer, spotted the senator on the flight from Washington, D.C. to Jackson, Mississippi, Sun Herald reported.
He decided to post the unmasked politician on Twitter.
I’ve seen enough Republican senators test positive to tweet this photo. @SenatorWicker — because you refused to wear a mask on our @Delta flight last night, please let your fellow passengers know your status once you’ve been tested. pic.twitter.com/j2TW6g1gwO
