A hot campaign point from former President Donald Trump and the Republican Party was that President Joe Biden would be one of the weakest leaders in living memory and that he would turn the great United States of America into a laughing stock on the global stage.
Well, his latest antics may just have proven them right.
Over the weekend, many top world leaders took part in a virtual climate zoom meeting to discuss potential solutions to the problems of climate change.
President Biden, a fully vaccinated person, decided it would be a great idea to wear a mask whilst attending this VIRTUAL meeting from inside the Oval Office, his place of work, fearing that he may catch Covid-19 over the internet.
The White House quickly leaped to his defense, yet their explanation was just as embarrassing as Biden’s actions.
At the latest White House press briefing, Press Secretary Jen Psaki was quizzed on the hilarious issue by Peter Doocy of Fox News, who has become quite a thorn in her side as of late.
Doocy simply asked why President Biden was the only world leader to be seen at the virtual meeting wearing a mask.
Psaki’s explanation didn’t disappoint, matching the shambolic nature of the President’s own actions.
She stated that President Biden was ‘sending a message to the world’ despite the man being fully vaccinated.
She went onto explain that, due to the nature of the meeting, there were additional staff and personnel in the room with him, presumably put in place to ensure the President didn’t say the wrong thing!
Doocy then pointed out to the press secretary that CDC guidelines state that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask indoors before Psaki wrongly stated that the guidance was specified for private homes, not workplaces.
The actual CDC guidance on the issue states that fully vaccinated people can meet with other fully vaccinated people indoors without the need for masks or social distancing.
There was no distinction made between private homes and the workplace.
To make matters worse, since the President is fully vaccinated, and given his age, vulnerability, and importance, one can be forgiven for believing that those around him would have received priority vaccinations also.
Once again, the President of the United States embarrassed himself and the nation on the global stage, a fact that will be glued in the minds of American voters in the lead up to 2022.
