Biden Seen Coughing In His Hand But What He Does Next Is Disgusting
President Joe Biden coughed into his hand following a Monday speech in New Jersey then continued to use it to shake hands with members of the public, furthermore, he was not wearing a mask. The incident comes less than a week after Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas tested positive for COVID-19 just days following an event where he had been with Biden.
Last Tuesday, a fully vaccinated Mayorkas tested positive for COVID-19 as part of routine pre-travel protocols.
Three days earlier, Mayorkas attended the 40th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service at the U.S. Capitol, where he was photographed just feet away from Biden and neither of the men were wearing a mask.
“Secretary Mayorkas is experiencing only mild congestion; he is fully vaccinated and will isolate and work at home per CDC protocols and medical advice,” DHS spokesperson Marsha Espinosa said at the time.
Earlier this month, the president and first lady sparked controversy when they were seen walking maskless through an upscale Italian seafood restaurant in Washington, D.C., which mandates all individuals over 2 years of age to wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status
While flanked by masked Secret Service agents, the maskless Bidens walked through Fiola Mare in Georgetown.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki dodged a question about the incident, saying people should pay attention to the president’s policies and “not overly focus on moments in time.”
