We older folks are quite familiar with the Lone Ranger - a fictional law-and-order character from the American Old West who wore a black eye mask. The Lone Ranger was a popular television show that ran from 1949 to 1957, starring Clayton Moore. His companion, Tonto, was played by Jay Silverheels, who was a Mohawk from the Six Nations Indian Reserve in Ontario, Canada.

Trump wearing a COVID-19 mask? At what age should you stop saying "it made me look like the Lone Ranger"? I don't know about the "Hi yo, Silver!", but he got the "away" part right.
A number of Republican lawmakers have called on Trump to wear a mask - showing his endorsement of CDC guidelines for mask-wearing for the sake of public health. But even nearly five months into this crisis, Trump continues to characterize it as a nuisance that he hopes will just go away, reports CTV News Canada. "I think we are going to be very good with the coronavirus. I think that, at some point, that's going to sort of just disappear, I hope," Trump said on Fox Business.

White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway noted Wednesday that Trump is regularly tested for the coronavirus, as are his aides. "I've said wear them, the first lady has said wear them, the president's administration has said wear them," Conway said. Bottom line? Trump chose the wrong hero to emulate. Fran Striker and George W. Trendle came up with a creed and a code of honor for the Lone Ranger that was strictly follower on the radio and later, television shows.
Donald Trump says it's ok to wear a mask and his makes him look like the "Lone Ranger." I don't know , should somebody tell him? #LoneRanger pic.twitter.com/5d76mK1w4q— Katy (@KatyJane_101) July 2, 2020
Number one on the code of honor was that the Lone Ranger was never seen without his mask or some sort of disguise. He always used perfect grammar and precise speech devoid of slang and colloquialisms. And he was never put in a hopeless situation. I would say that there is no way Trump would look like the Lone Ranger or even come close to being the man the Lone Ranger was portrayed to be.
Yep, @realDonaldTrump totally nailed the Lone Ranger look. #LoneRanger pic.twitter.com/jlTgATV8qC— Charles Skaggs (@CharlesSkaggs) July 1, 2020
