Despite the left’s near-religious devotion to mask requirements for everyday Americans, their hypocrisy on the issue is regularly exposed, something which happened once again at Wednesday’s Congressional baseball game when President Joe Biden himself was caught on camera schmoozing barefaced with lawmakers and attendees alike, as Breitbart noted.
Biden’s appearance at Nationals Park was part of a last-minute push to secure additional support for two massive spending bills championed by the president and came following his decision to postpone a planned trip to Chicago in order to help get the measures over the finish line, as the Daily Mail reported.
Though the president’s arrival was greeted enthusiastically by the sections of the stadium filled by Democrats, a chorus of boos erupted from supporters of the GOP, most of whom were sitting along the first-base line.
Despite having eschewed the facial covering he is often seen wearing outdoors as well as inside the White House, Biden ultimately found his way to the dugout along the third-base line, which is where the Democrats’ team was gathered, and engaged in friendly banter with those present.

Though Biden and his Democrat colleagues often make a deliberate show of wearing face masks even though they are all fully vaccinated, there have been innumerable instances in which the inconsistencies between their actions and their words are laid bare for all to see.
As the New York Post noted last month, during a ceremony held last month to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the terror attacks of 9/11, a number of prominent figures on the left – including Biden, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul – wore face masks while official photographs were being snapped, only to whip them right off as soon as camera coverage receded.
The outlet added at the time that Biden himself was one of the worst offenders that day, tugging his own mask down beneath his mouth in order to shout something to another individual in the crowd.
Biden’s maskless visit to the Congressional ball game, while not the least bit surprising, represents a tone-deaf insult to the millions of Americans who are fed up with being told they must cover their faces, take vaccines they do not want, and endure continued mitigation-related upheavals in which those of the ruling class deign to participate only when politically expedient.
