As you know, Joe Biden is a total hypocrite.
Yesterday evening, he signed an executive order which mandated masks to be worn at all times while on federal land. Ironically enough, it only took him a few hours to break his own rule. He and his entire family didn’t think it was important enough to wear masks while visiting the Lincoln Memorial last night.
During todays press briefing, Fox News reporter Steve Doocy confronted Biden press secretary Jen Psaki on the matter and she gave a cringeworthy answer.
“Why weren’t President Biden and all members of the Biden family not masked at all times on federal land last night if he signed an executive order that mandates masks on federal land at all times,” Doocy asked.
“At the inaugural…” she stumbled.
“At the Lincoln Memorial, yeah,” Doocy clarified.
“Uh, I, I think Steve he was uh, celebrating, uh uh uh an evening…a historic day in our country and certainly he signed the mask mandate because it’s a way to send a message to the American public about the importance of wearing masks, how it can save tens of thousands of lives. I don’t know that I have much more for you on it than that” she responded.
Watch the entire exchange below:
Peter Doocy just asked Press Sec Jen Psaki why Joe Biden was maskless at the Lincoln memorial just hours after signing an executive order requiring masks on federal property.
Psaki hesitated, beat around the bush, then said "we have bigger issues to worry about."

Thankfully, Doocy kept pressing.
“But as Joe Biden often talks about, it is not just important the example of power but the power of our example. Was that a good example for people who were watching who might not be paying attention normally,” he responded.
As you can guess, Psaki’s second answer was just as bad as her first.
“Well Steve I think the power of his example is also the message he sends by signing 25 executive orders including over half relating to COVID,” she responded before babbling on about what a good “example” they send.
“I think we have bigger issues to worry about at this moment in time,” she concluded as she called on another reporter.
So in Psaki’s alternate reality, the message is sent by “signing an executive order” to wear masks, but not ACTUALLY wearing masks and following the rules.
