On Friday, former vice president and Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden was ridiculed on social media for disregarding basic COVID rules, once a video went viral showing him pulling his protective mask down during the speech so that he could cough into his hand. Remember, Biden is Mr. Put on a Mask!
The video reveals Biden talking to a Nevada audience, when he suddenly pauses to pull down his mask so that he could cough into his hand, a move that causes more germs to be spread around than coughing into a mask or your elbow. I don’t like the elbow coughing, but I digress.
Biden then pulled the mask back up into place, using the same hand he just coughed into, and the moment was over, but it had really only begun on social media.
One America News Network’s Jenn Pellegrino picked up on it.
Biden, at a “drive-in” campaign event in Nevada, calls Pres. Trump “reckless” as Biden coughs into his hand, coughs into a mask that keeps sliding down his face, and stumbles over numbers, mentioning a $15 million dollar.. thousand dollar… minimum wage.

Steve Guest, a Republican rapid response guy, was plain spoken about Biden’s faux pas.
You can't make this up.
Joe Biden just removed his mask to cough in his hand.

By leftist standards, Biden has no regard for the people around him. He could have made someone sick. He could have killed Kenny!
Biden, who has repeatedly pushed for a national mask mandate to stop the spread of COVID-19, was berated by critics who accused him of hypocrisy. How much do you want to bet that before this news cycle is over someone will blame Donald Trump?
There was no need for the former vice president to wear a mask in the first place. He was doing it for political reasons. He wasn’t even wearing the mask correctly, covering only his mouth. His nose is exposed in the video.
Democrats have been trying to scare the living hell out of everyone over this virus, but they will say nothing when one of their own breaks the rules. For example, after Biden coughed into his open hand, he touched the podium, and now some low level intern was going to have to remove the podium after the speech and touch the areas Biden touched with his germ-filled hand.
“Second graders know to cough into their elbow!” one person tweeted in reaction.
Second graders know to cough into their elbow!

Someone else tweeted, “Wait, either he & his disciples ‘believe in science’ or they don’t. The advice for coughs has been without equivocation: cough into a tissue (and discard), or cough into your elbow. How is this acceptable? Or is this more ‘rules for thee, but not for me’ from the ruling class?”

Another tweeted, “The whole point of the mask is to try and minimize the spread of virus carrying droplets into the air. By taking his mask off and coughing he is basically invalidating the mask, apart from of course spreading mucous (to) his hands and everything it touches.” Read More @ DJHJMedia.com
