President Joe Biden has been a strong advocate for vaccine and mask mandates, but it appears it is rules for thee and not for me.
The president was caught again not wearing a mask where one was mandated, The Blaze reported.
President Joe Biden was caught not wearing a mask while shopping at a Massachusetts store that explicitly required face coverings to be worn inside. This is not the first time that the Democratic president was spotted violating an indoor mask mandate.
President Biden was shopping inside Murray’s Toggery Shop in Nantucket on Saturday. Video shows Biden inside the crowded upscale clothing store with his face mask around his neck. The angle of the video perfectly juxtaposes the maskless president with a large sign on the door of the store that reads: “REQUIRED FACE COVERING.” It appears that everyone else in the store is wearing a mask.

The guidelines in the state of Massachusetts advise that masks be worn indoors by those who could be compromised. And President Biden, being 79 years old would be considered one of them.
“Fully vaccinated individuals are advised to wear a mask or face covering when indoors (and not in your own home) if you have a weakened immune system, or if you are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease, or is an unvaccinated adult,” it reads.
And the president had a “potentially pre-cancerous lesion” removed during his colonoscopy last week, Fox News reported.
Biden had a “benign appearing 3 mm polyp removed” last week that was sent in for testing and “identified as a tubular adenoma,” according to a memorandum released by the White House Wednesday.
“This is similar to the polyp which he had removed in 2008,” a memorandum, signed by Physician to the President Kevin C O’Connor said. “A tubular adenoma is a benign, slow-growing, but thought to be pre-cancerous lesion for which no further action is required at this time.”
It said that the 79-year-old president should receive a “repeat colonoscopy in 7 to 10 years.”
The doctor otherwise said that the president was “healthy” and vigorous,” and still fit to do the job of president.
Last week Biden had to temporarily give the powers of the presidency to Vice President Kamala Harris when he had the procedure.
On the day before his 79th birthday Biden went in for a colonoscopy and will be under anesthesia, during which time Harris was in charge, The Daily Mail reported.
- The White House said Harris would work out of her office in the West Wing, meaning she will not be in the Oval Office as she assumes presidential power.
- Biden’s motorcade arrived at Walter Reed Military Center at 8:51 a.m. ET on Friday morning, where he was to undergo his first physical as president. It comes the day before he 79th birthday. Biden, wearing a face mask, waved as he went inside.
- White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced early Friday morning that Biden would be examined, adding later he ‘will undergo a routine colonoscopy.’
“As was the case when President George W. Bush had the same procedure in 2002 and 2007, and following the process set out in the Constitution, President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for the brief period of time when he is under anesthesia. The Vice President will work from her office in the West Wing during this time,” she said.
The president is fully vaccinated and has had his booster shot.
