It was only yesterday when we discovered that, after signing an order demanding Americans wear masks on federal property, Joe Biden was seen not wearing one at the Lincoln Memorial. You’d think a man in his late seventies (in the worst age group for COVID) would be very careful when outside. On top of that, you’d think a president would follow his own rules he’s forcing on Americans.
He’s already faced considerable backlash for this flagrant display of hypocrisy. On Wednesday, he signed another executive order requiring people traveling across the country to wear masks as well.

Geez, this guy really loves forcing us to wear masks—despite the fact science can’t confirm if they even do anything. If Joe loves masks so much, why won’t he wear one? Oh, but as it turns out, the White House is exempt from this rule because they are too busy.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday said “we have bigger issues to worry about” than whether President Biden and members of his family were complying with his own new federal masking mandate after the president and multiple family members were seen maskless at an inaugural event…
“Yesterday was a historic moment in our history. [Biden] was inaugurated as president of the United States. He was surrounded by his family. We take a number of precautions. But I think we have bigger issues to worry about at this moment in time.” [Source: Just the News]
Really, Psaki? Joe just signed two orders demanding Americans give up a part of their freedom to wear masks. Some studies suggest masks can be detrimental to your health, as they restrict the flow of oxygen to your lungs. But Biden doesn’t have to follow his own rules, because he has “bigger issues to worry about”?
Is that an acceptable answer? Oh, he’s the president so he doesn’t have to worry about wearing a mask. Forget the fact that he’ll be meeting with people from all over the world, travel to various locations, and make very important decisions. No, a man in his 70s shouldn’t have to worry about contracting or spreading a disease that has crippled the world!
Do these people think we’re stupid? That they can say or do anything and we’ll happily nod along, no questions asked?
Democrats frequently do the opposite of what they demand of us. Joe Biden had a chance to start his administration by breaking that ugly trend.
Already, he’s failed.
