During his nine months in office, (and during his campaign as well), Joe Biden has been adamant about taking the utmost of precautions when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic.
This is not unusual for the Democratic Party, who have been making sure to say all the right things when it comes to the COVID-19 crisis, even if they don’t do the right things.
The incident comes less than a week after Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas tested positive for COVID-19 just days following an event with the president.
Video of the ridiculous incident was soon trending on Twitter.

And this isn’t the first time that Biden and Mayorkas appear to have shunned protocol, either.
Three days earlier, Mayorkas had attended the 40th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service at the U.S. Capitol alongside Biden, where they were photographed just feet apart without masks.
The incident comes after a number of high-profile incidents in which Democratic leaders have espoused the “rules for thee but not for me” ethos, including one in which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was caught on CCTV flouting a California city’s rules about indoor hair salon appointments at the height of the pandemic.
To quote Biden himself, “c’mon, man”.
