President Biden made promises of an executive mask mandate a centerpiece of his campaign and followed through on day one of his presidency by ordering the use of masks on all federal property.
Just hours after issuing the executive order, Biden was busted breaking his own rule while visiting the Lincoln Memorial — which is indeed federal property — and there’s video footage to prove it.
Democrats have always prized the mantra “rules for thee, not for me,” and as a lifelong establishment fixture, Biden is no exception.
Biden’s Twitter account wrote on Wednesday that “wearing masks isn’t a partisan issue — it’s a patriotic act that can save countless lives. That’s why I signed an executive order today issuing a mask mandate on federal property. It’s time to mask up, America.”
Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk was quick to point out that Biden clearly doesn’t take his own mask mandate seriously by highlighting a C-SPAN clip of a clearly maskless Biden at the Lincoln Memorial the very same day.
“Does Joe Biden’s new executive order mandating masks on federal property not apply to Joe Biden while he’s on federal property? Because here he is at the Lincoln Memorial with no mask just hours after signing it,” Kirk wrote.

According to Fox News, “Biden’s executive order, the “100-day masking challenge,” will require masks and social distancing in all federal buildings, on all federal land and by federal employees and contractors, and on airlines, trains and transit systems traveling between states.”
