Biden Press Secretary Says He’s Got ‘Bigger Issues’ After Being Caught Maskless On Federal Property

Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki raised eyebrows when she dismissed questions about the President failing to wear a mask on federal property – a violation of his own executive order, signed just hours earlier.

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy questioned why the President and his family were not wearing masks at the Lincoln Memorial on Wednesday, considering the mandate requires it at all times.

“Why weren’t President Biden and all members of the Biden family masked at all times on federal lands last night, if he signed an executive order that mandates masks on federal lands at all times?” Doocy asked.

Psaki initially replied that they get to flaunt the rules because Biden “was celebrating” an “historic day in our country.”

Pressed further on whether the President was setting a “good example” Psaki replied, “I think we have bigger issues to worry about at this moment in time.”

Biden Not Leading By Example After Failing To Wear A Mask

President Biden tweeted about his executive order regarding masks and the “100-day masking challenge” he was promoting.

“Wearing masks isn’t a partisan issue — it’s a patriotic act that can save countless lives,” Biden wrote. “That’s why I signed an executive order today issuing a mask mandate on federal property. It’s time to mask up, America.”

It’s time alright, just not for him. And it’s not time if you’re “celebrating” historic events.

If we’re being fair, and using the media’s own standard, Biden essentially engaged in a super-spreader event, failed to follow the science, and wants people to die ZOMG!!!

Just Can’t Admit Their Mistake

Psaki, in her first press briefing in which she appeared with two masks on, told reporters that “the president has also asked us to be models for the American people.”

The hypocrisy is rich. 

Why was Doocy the only one to question it? Kayleigh McEnany must have fielded dozens upon dozens of questions involving masks or being maskless, but Biden’s press secretary gets just one reporter curious as to why he broke his own rules?

This past August, President Biden slammed Donald Trump for not wearing a mask at Memorial Day events.

“He’s a fool, an absolute fool to talk that way,” he asserted.

“Presidents are supposed to lead, not engage in folly and be falsely masculine.”
