If there’s one line that President Joe Biden loves to repeat, it’s “wear a mask,” which he usually follows with something about mask-wearing being a patriotic duty to help save lives.
Biden’s younger brother Frank Biden must not have received the memo. He was photographed without a mask in close proximity to other people on Thursday night at boxer Floyd Mayweather’s birthday bash in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Page Six reported.

The younger Biden was hanging out with a number of A-list celebrities at the lavish party thrown for Mayweather’s 44th birthday. Not surprisingly, the paparazzi was in tow, and Biden smiled for the camera while not wearing a mask. No big deal, right?
But the issue became a big deal because Frank Biden, given his status as the brother of the pro-mask president of the United States, clearly believed that the rules didn’t apply to him. He represents the same political side that would publicly humiliate a Republican Party member for being spotted in public without a mask.
According to Page Six, one source confirmed that Frank Biden has been vaccinated.
Another source indicated that the younger Biden brother was wearing a mask most of the night, but took it off for photo ops.
“Individually, there were COVID-19 checks for each person ahead of time,” the source reportedly said. “People that were traveling were asked to be tested and travel safely. People were also handed ‘TMT’ branded masks upon entry to the event.”
As the New York Post reported in late January, Frank Biden took quite a bit of heat for appearing in a newspaper advertisement for a Florida law firm that clearly revealed who he was and how he is connected to the current president.
“The two Biden brothers have long held a commitment to pushing environmental issues to the forefront,” the ad said. “The president-elect has vowed to rejoin the Paris Agreement and wants to set ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets.”
As Fox News reported, Frank Biden is listed on the law firm’s website as a “non-attorney senior adviser,” which some have suggested is nothing more than a fancy title for someone the firm hired who conveniently happens to be the brother of the president of the United States.
Between Frank Biden and Hunter Biden, it’s not a stretch to presume that President Biden will likely have to spend an inordinate amount of time avoiding questions about their behavior.
