After being inaugurated and subsequently issuing a requirement that coronavirus masks be worn on all federal property on Wednesday, President Joe Biden was caught on camera doing the very thing he prohibited.
“Biden signed executive actions to require masks on all federal grounds and asked agencies to extend moratoriums on evictions and on federal student loan payments,” The Washington Post reported Wednesday.
That very evening, Biden was caught on camera violating his own mask requirement on federal land, The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra reports:
“Despite his order, Biden was seen late on Wednesday night visiting the Lincoln Memorial and not wearing a mask while he stood only several feet away from another person.”

Here is Biden tonight at the Lincoln Memorial, which is on federal land, not wearing a mask: https://t.co/Q1T01mrq29
In addition to the video, Saavedra’s article displays a Getty Images photo of the mask-less Biden standing with reporters, all of whom appear to be wearing masks, inside the Lincoln Memorial.
Biden has repeatedly chided Pres. Donald Trump for not wearing a mask. As The New York Times has reported, Biden once called Trump a “fool” for failing to don a mask.
