(Headline USA) President Joe Biden sparked headlines again this weekend after appearing in public without a mask, despite his aggressive COVID-19 masking policies.
Biden was reportedly sighted and caught on camera Saturday in Nantucket shopping at Murray’s Toggery Shop without a mask. The news quickly sparked backlash for the president.
Why does Biden get to ignore mask rules?
Does being President protect from all of these scary “New Variants”?

This is hardly the first the time the president has received accusations of hypocrisy for going maskless in public.

In one instance Biden dined at Fiola Mare, an Italian seafood restaurant in Georgetown, and was caught on camera not wearing a mask.
Every American deserves an answer from @JoeBiden directly explaining why he thinks is allowed to break rules that he demands others to follow.

The maskless moments come after the Biden administration has put in place a series of stringent mask and vaccine requirements.
One such example includes the administration’s decision to double the fine for passengers who go without a mask on airplanes.
“In addition to testing, we know masking helps stop the spread of COVID-19. That’s why when I came into office, I required masks for all federal buildings and on federal lands, on airlines, and other modes of transportation,” Biden said in a speech announcing the federal change. “If you break the rules, be prepared to pay…And, by the way, show some respect. The anger you see on television toward flight attendants and others doing their job is wrong; it’s ugly.”
