Press Secretary Jen Psaki Says Biden Violating His Own Mask Order Was Ok Because He Was “Celebrating”

(RepublicanInformer)- After condemning anybody who doesn’t wear a mask in public for a year, Joe Biden refused to wear a mask while on federal property despite signing an executive order requiring everybody on federal land or property to wear a mask at all times.

One rule for me, another for three.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki shockingly claimed that President Joe Biden was able to violate his own mask mandate on his first day on the job because he was “celebrating.”

What kind of excuse is this?

President Biden was seen on Wednesday at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., in a press photo op. After signing the mask mandate, he appeared without a mask and didn’t seem to care in the slightest about the safety of the press and colleagues around him.

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Psaki about the incident, and instead of offering an apology, she just dismissed it as a non-issue.

“Why weren’t President Biden and all members of the Biden family masked at all times on federal lands last night if he signed an Executive Order that mandates masks on federal lands at all times?” Doocy asked.

That’s when Psaki made the shocking claim that celebrating is a good enough excuse for the president to violate executive orders he signed.

But not for the common people!

“I think Steve, he was celebrating an evening, uh, of a historic day in our country, and certainly he signed the mask mandate because it’s a way to send a message to the American public about the importance of uh, wearing masks, how it can save tens of thousands of lives,” she said.

Perhaps even more egregiously, though, she then said that there are “bigger issues to worry about.”

Bigger issues to worry about? Biden said throughout the campaign that wearing a mask is the most important thing people can do to fight COVID-19.

Is this just another lie from the Biden camp?
