Democrat nominee Joe Biden has repeatedly criticized President Trump for not wearing a face-covering at all times, and has asked the American people to elect him because of his commitment to “listening to the scientists.”
However, Biden was caught on camera on Friday violating the most basic rule of wearing a mask. During a campaign event in Nevada, Biden shocked viewers by pulling down his mask mid-sentence to cough into his hand. Biden did not wash his hands after the fact.

Now, it’s a little bit ridiculous for Biden to be wearing a mask in the first place, considering the fact that he’s standing much futher than six feet away from anyone else at the event.
However, Democrats love to virtue signal about “setting an example” for the deplorables by wearing masks in every situation, no matter what the CDC guidance concerning face coverings actually says.
In fact, Biden took it upon himself to remind Trump just a few days ago that “masks matter” and appeared to imply that Trump contracted COVID-19 because he doesn’t wear a mask as faithfully as Democrat politicians.
“I would hope that the president having gone through what he went through – and I’m glad he seems to be coming along pretty well – would communicate the right lesson to the American people,” Biden pontificated earlier this week.
“Masks matter. These masks, they matter. It matters. It saves lives. It prevents the spread of the disease,” Biden continued.
Someone might want to remind Biden how masks are intended to work because removing the mask, coughing into your hand, and then not washing that hand — all while claiming that Donald Trump is the one setting a bad example — is one of the more obvious examples that Democrats either have no idea what the scientists actually say, or they do and simply don’t care.
