Since President Joe Biden threw his hat into the 2020 Democratic presidential primaries, the 79-year-old mentally and physically declining politician has struggled with the whole COVID mask-wearing issue.
Several times Joe has forgotten or lost his mask apparently not considering them effective for preventing him from catching the COVID virus variants.
Here is an example – President Biden loses face mask at a podium
On Tuesday Biden, while struggling to speak to reporters, accidentally shared how he truly feels about wearing COVID-19 face masks, in this case, while outside.
‘This looks stupid’
Biden removed his face mask and declared “this looks stupid” amid a chuckle while speaking to reporters outside the White House.

Hundreds of Twitter followers threw their 2 cents in commenting on the Twitter video from Charlie Spiering — White House correspondent for Breitbart News — as well as those who opined elsewhere on Twitter, more or less echoed Biden’s apparent mask sentiments:
“Joe gets one right,” another user quipped.

“The first time he has been correct in a long time,” another user noted.

The constantly changing “guidance” from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently says that mask wearing in outdoor settings is unnecessary unless you’re around crowds or those who aren’t fully vaccinated while in an area with a high number of COVID-19 cases.
Dr. Anthony Fauci in May expressed more caution than the CDC, saying masks aren’t necessary outdoors if you’re fully vaccinated. That same month, the CDC was called out for greatly exaggerating the percentage of outdoor transmissions — and the agency’s explanation was that it just wanted to protect people.
Depending upon the direction the radical left wind is blowing, Biden’s mask-wearing in public appearances is confusing, to say the least.
A little over a week ago, photos circulated of Biden wearing a mask while walking on a Delaware beach with his wife, first lady Jill Biden, and their dog. Jill Biden wasn’t wearing a mask:

Biden — who is fully vaccinated — said last spring, despite CDC guidance saying masks are unnecessary outdoors, that he still intended to wear masks outside, saying doing so is a “patriotic responsibility.”
Around the same time last spring, the Associated Press reported — citing a top Biden adviser — that the president wore masks outdoors out of habit.
Still, seeing Biden in a mask on a nearly empty beach late last month led some to mock the president and call his outdoor mask-wearing “theater,” Fox News said.
Entire Biden Team Clueless
On Tuesday in Georgia, the Biden team set up a potentially racist appearing speaking engagement by seating a group of black Americans, all in masks, behind a powerful white man President Biden speaking without wearing one criticizing Republicans attempts to suppress the vote for people of color in Georgia.

Meanwhile, NBC News reported Monday that COVID-19 confusion is hampering the White House.
The network said last month Biden and his top COVID advisers — including Fauci and CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky — were sitting together in a video call “in the type of high-filtration masks they haven’t been urging the public to wear.”
