Only a few hours after Joe Biden issued his big federal mask mandate, he and his family took a tour of the Lincoln Memorial… without wearing masks.
As one of his “day one” moves, the Commander in Thief issued an Executive Order to require masks to be worn by everyone at all federal facilities.
“The heads of executive departments and agencies (agencies) shall immediately take action, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law,” the Biden order reads, “to require compliance with CDC guidelines with respect to wearing masks, maintaining physical distance, and other public health measures by: on-duty or on-site Federal employees; on-site Federal contractors; and all persons in Federal buildings or on Federal lands.”
Biden’s COVID czar, Jeff Zients, added, “This executive action will direct the agencies to take action to require compliance with CDC guidance on mask wearing and physical distancing in federal buildings, on federal lands and by federal employees and contractors.”
Meanwhile, our newly ensconced “president” took to Twitter to add more exhortations for mask-wearing.
“Wearing masks isn’t a partisan issue — it’s a patriotic act that can save countless lives,” Biden tweeted on Wednesday. “That’s why I signed an executive order today issuing a mask mandate on federal property. It’s time to mask up, America.”

Still, only a few hours after making all these sciency proclamations, Biden and his brood took a whirlwind tour of the National Mall.
But… oopsies, no masks??

Looks like coronavirus has agreed not to hurt the Bidens, huh?
