Of all the members and advisers in President Joe Biden’s administration, there’s not a single one of them that’s a bigger cheerleader for wearing masks than the president’s chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
But like so many other hypocrites on the left, Fauci apparently doesn’t believe masking rules particularly apply to him, at least that’s what one could deduce after a bombshell report from Politico revealed that Fauci was caught at an indoor function without his mask, and only put it on when he feared he was being photographed, The Daily Wire reports.
It was during a book launch party for Jonathan Karl last week that Fauci reportedly galavanted around the room without a mask, breaking not only a city ordinance but also his own guidance that he relentlessly pushes every week on the cable news show circuit.
Politico Playbook wrote: “As gawkers tried to snap pictures of him indoors not wearing a mask, America’s doc would put it on and take it off depending on whom he was around.”
It gets worse
According to the report, author Sally Quinn apparently approached Fauci and broached the mask issue, checking to see why the infectious disease expert seemed to only selectively don a mask throughout the night.
“I said, ‘You seem pretty ambivalent about your mask’ because no one else was wearing one,” Quinn reportedly told Politico.
She added: “He said, ‘I just decided that if anyone came up that I didn’t know, I would put my mask on.'”
Quinn went on to say that several paparazzi members were in attendance, and were chomping at the bit to capture Fauci without his mask, as such a photo probably has a large bounty for the lucky photog who could capture such a moment.
However, the author went on to defend Biden’s chief medical adviser, saying he only took off his mask because he essentially knew everyone in the room, and somehow knew they were vaccinated. “He knew everyone was vaccinated. If it was someone we knew, he would trust them, and if it was somebody else, he didn’t,” she said.
Biden caught, too
Fauci certainly isn’t the only person in the president’s orbit who has been caught maskless, as Biden himself, on several occasions, has been busted by keen observers.
According to the Daily Mail, in late November, Biden was spotted shopping inside of a Nantucket, Massachusetts store without a mask on. The kicker in that particular situation was the fact that just hours before, he had been briefed on the rapid spread of the omicron variant of COVID-19.
It’s truly no wonder why there’s so much confusion and resistance across America on the subject of wearing masks. If our own leaders, who push such measures, are consistently seen ignoring the rules, why should any American follow them?
