Biden urges Americans to mask up, removes mask around aides minutes later

President Joe Biden has once again been accused of violating his own strict maks recommendations.

This time, he was caught on video removing his own face mask just minutes after imploring ordinary Americans to mask up around others.

“Indoors, in public settings around other people”

“Sooner or later, we are going to see cases of this new variant here in the United States,” Biden said. “Please wear your mask when you are indoors, in public settings around other people.”

While the president’s words might have carried some weight initially, his subsequent actions did not follow suit. Biden was seen removing his face covering even as the aides around him still had theirs on.

Biden’s actions are sure to be influential to at least some segment of the population, and his refusal to follow his own rules is sending a potentially dangerous message.

During his recent Thanksgiving vacation, Biden was seen without a mask while at a store in Nantucket, Massachusetts, in an apparent violation of store rules and local ordinances.

Despite the Democratic Party’s warnings about a new coronavirus variant, no one at the event spoke up to tell Biden to put his mask back on.

Allegations of hypocrisy abound

Even first lady Jill Biden has disregarded mask recommendations as recently as an event at the White House on Tuesday when she appeared without a mask in a room of children who had been required to mask up.

As many Americans now see it, the pattern is clear: Masks are for the masses while the elites are allowed to do as they please.

Furthermore, the disregard for mask requirements being shown by Democratic political figures undermines the purported risk posed by COVID-19 and the new omicron variant — not to mention the efficacy of face masks to stop its spread.

Even with harsh restrictions put in place largely by Democratic officials, many figures within the party continue to publicly flout them. San Francisco Mayor London Breed, for instance, was recently criticized for dancing maskless in a crowded club.

Such incidents further bolster allegations of hypocrisy against the party. As for Biden in particular, these mixed messages might send his plummeting approval rating even lower.
