The purpose of wearing a face mask seems to have gone right over Joe Biden’s head.
According to TheBlaze, the Democrat presidential hopeful was just caught on video pulling down his mask to cough into his hand.
Biden’s latest blunder
While those in the mainstream media may not be interested in this story, it’s more than worthy of a headline. Every time President Donald Trump has taken off his face covering — even before he tested positive — those in the media went absolutely nuts.
But Biden? Crickets.
Per guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), wearing a mask over your nose and mouth can help slow the spread of COVID-19 by keeping coughs, sneezes, and the like from infected individuals contained.
Biden, apparently, didn’t get that message.
According to TheBlaze, his face mask faux pas occurred at an event in Nevada. Take a look for yourself:
You can’t make this up.

A history of gaffes
Of course, this is far from the first gaffe we’ve seen from Biden on the campaign trail. In August of 2019, the former vice president got mixed up about what state he was in, confusing New Hampshire for Vermont, according to The Hill.
It all has President Trump wondering if Biden will even make it through his first term, if he wins next month.
“I’m not going to sit behind a computer, and have somebody feed him answers, because he has no idea,” Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity last week, referring to the idea that he might debate Biden virtually, according to RealClearPolitics. “Because he won’t be president for three months before the wonderful Kamala [Harris] takes over… She’s the most liberal person in the Senate. She’s not a socialist. She’s a step beyond socialism.”
