Brendan Dilley, who markets himself as a MAGA life coach, and has a political podcast supporting Donald Trump, recently explained why he doesn’t wear a mask — because he also “barely even wore condoms.” It is, he says, why he has three kids.
Right Wing Watch shared a short clip from a recent episode of The Dilley Show. Dilley is talking about masks, which are recommended for protection against spreading COVID-19. The full episode is titled, in part, “Shamdemic on Steroids,” and that title sets the tone for his view on following safety procedures.
MAGA life coach Brenden Dilley has three kids from different women because he "barely even wore condoms when [he] had to," so he certainly isn't going to wear a mask to prevent the spread of COVID-19. pic.twitter.com/Q8Uorx7Oub

I don’t wear a mask for flu season, I don’t wear a mask for f***ing cold season, I don’t wear a mask — b****, I got f***ing three kids, I barely even wore condoms when I had to!
On his website, Dilley describes himself as a single parent to three children, and describes his life coaching career.
Much of what Brenden writes, speaks about, teaches and trains on revolves around parenting, dating, relationships, self-empowerment, fitness and authenticity.
For fuller context, in the episode, Dilley plays a series of video clips promoting conspiracy theories, including that the hospitals are actually super empty, some anti-vax propaganda, and hydroxychloroquine.
This is why I’ve never backed off of the never-wearing-a-mask thing. I never will. I made fun of it when it started, I made fun of it in the beginning, I make fun of it now, I’m gonna make fun of it all the way to the end…I don’t wear a mask because they don’t do a f***ing thing, and I’m not afraid to deal with a virus that has a 99.7% recovery rate.
Earlier in the episode, Dilley declared, “China lied, people died.” He does not address how this sentiment fits with claims that COVID-19 isn’t really very deadly at all.
