Psaki downplays Biden’s mask violation

White House press secretary Jen Psaki dismissed a question about President Joe Biden’s mask violation during Monday’s press briefing, saying “there are moments when we all don’t put masks back on as quickly as we should.”

The Oct. 17 video of Biden walking through a Georgetown restaurant mask-free quickly spread across social media.

The action is one of many times Biden has violated his own mask-wearing policy. And this time he is also violating the law as Washington D.C. has a strict mandate in place.

In January, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy noted Biden was the person who signed the executive order that requires wearing a mask on federal land. Biden, however, had been caught walking maskless around the Lincoln Memorial in January shortly afterwards.

The most recent episode ended similarly.

By “just addressed it,” Psaki seems to indicate dismissing the question without an apology or other sufficient explanation is sufficient.

The news comes as millions of Americans are forced to wear masking in various school, work and travel settings.
