Whether Joe Biden’s daily confusion is the result of age-related dementia or merely a symptom of his never having been that bright in the first place, it appears to be contagious. On Sunday, White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Jeffrey Zients was a guest on CNN’s “State of the Union” where he was asked to comment on Biden’s own mask-wearing habits, which run counter to CDC guidelines.

We commented on Biden’s paradoxical mask protocol in late April when he met with the media to unveil the new CDC guidelines. These very plainly state that “fully vaccinated people can spend time with other fully vaccinated people, including indoors, without wearing masks or physical distancing.” Yet, Biden on that occasion exited the White House wearing a mask even though he was alone. When he reached the podium where members of the press were assembled, he removed the mask.

On Sunday, Tapper played a video of a press briefing Biden had given on Friday, where he was asked again about his contrarian mask habits, to which he replied incorrectly, “When you’re inside, it’s still good policy to wear a mask.” The host then asked Zients to confirm the CDC guidance, which he did. Tapper then asked why the president continue to wear his mask when around a small gathering of journalists, all of who have been vaccinated.

Zients’s reply? “The president is going to continue to follow CDC guidance.”
