Joe Biden's Already Contradicted KJP's Remarks on Masking

On Tuesday, during the first press briefing since First Lady Jill Biden tested positive for COVID, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre shared that while President Joe Biden texted negative Monday night and earlier on Tuesday, "he will be masking while indoors and around people in alignment with CDC guidance." As it turns out, though, the president is already contradicting the information that Jean-Pierre relayed, and those CDC guidelines.

A short time after the press briefing, the president gave remarks at the presentation of the Medal of Honor to Army Captain Larry L. Taylor. It was a typical appearance from the president, as he fumbled people's names and bolted without taking questions, though in this case he even missed the concluding prayer. 

Although the president wore a mask while standing at the front when he was not speaking, he removed it to speak and then did not put it back on. This included when standing in close proximity of others, and when fleeing the event.

The White House is already pushing yet another COVID booster on the American people, with the president last month having asked Congress to approve more funding for it. For some time now, Jean-Pierre has been saying they "encourage" Americans to get that boosters. This included during Tuesday's briefing.

Who's to say that the White House won't push masks further next? Some colleges and universities and now even elementary schools are bringing mask mandates back.

 If the president can't follow CDC guidelines, in this case when it comes to wearing masks indoors, it's worth wondering how the White House can expect the rest of us to follow them.
