This is the leader that Democrats want to bring us through a pandemic?!
Like many Americans, Joe Biden has a problem with masks. His problem, however, isn’t that he dislikes them and finds them uncomfortable — he might feel that way but would never dare admit it publicly — it’s that he can’t seem to figure out how to use them properly.
Joe has been using a mask as a prop for some time now to signal to the terrified masses that he takes the virus seriously.
He should — he’s in a high-risk category for serious illness if he contracted the virus.
But, Joe has also been pretty clear that he wants to impose a national mask mandate and hasn’t been all that clear on the details. In some places, like New York, California, and Hawaii, masks are mandatory “in public” which includes when outdoors.
Joe has said that mask-wearing isn’t a “political statement” though it has clearly become that for many people, including his campaign team who created a video to COVID-shame the President for contracting a highly contagious virus because he didn’t stay hidden in the basement for 6 months.

Here is Biden saying that wearing a mask is “following the science” and should be embraced by everyone. (Note that he’s not wearing a mask while saying this.)
Joe Biden: "It's estimated that nearly another 210,000 Americans could lose their lives by the end of the year [from COVID-19]. Enough. No more. Let's set partisanship aside. Let's end the politics and follow the science. Wearing a mask is not a political statement." pic.twitter.com/5a96WGLf1p

Here is Joe giving a speech in a mask still COVID-shaming President Trump and urging him to embrace a national mask mandate.

But the thing is, many times when Biden does wear a mask, he doesn’t wear it correctly.
He touches it, removes it from the front rather than by the ear loops, folds it, rubs his hand down the front of it, and then touches his face repeatedly after he removes it.

Just this past weekend, Biden’s mask had slipped below his nose, and he pulled it down, coughed into his hand, then pulled it back up again.
You can't make this up.
Joe Biden just removed his mask to cough in his hand.

It’s not like Joe didn’t know that coughing into your hand is unacceptable in 2020.
During those original “15 Days To Slow The Spread” lockdowns back in March, CNN’s Jake Tapper reminded Joe that we’re supposed to cough into our elbows now to prevent the spread of illness.
OMG. Biden coughs into his hand live on CNN.
Jake Tapper: "You know, you're supposed to cough into your elbow … I learned that, actually, covering your White House."

Tapper even said that it was “under the Obama administration” that he learned that we’re all supposed to cough into our elbow.
Now, that’s embarrassing.
Joe makes the excuse that he’s there alone in his home, but I’m not buying that. Do you really think that the Biden campaign left Joe on his own to handle a virtual CNN interview? No way. He’s been using a teleprompter for informal questions from voters as well as during interviews.
Take this tweet with a grain of salt — Ali is a bit of a troll, and this is a Tweet, after all — but Biden does seem to be touching his nose and coughing more these days. That could just be the toll that being out of his basement occasionally has put on him.
He keeps pulling down his mask to wipe his nose with his hand, which is just…gross.
In this video, he just pulled the mask down to rub against his chin while he was speaking and then…he wipes his nose again.

Look, I’m not one that believes that masks are terribly effective, but Joe Biden is one of those people. He so fervently believes that masks save lives that he wants to mandate mask-wearing across the country.
If he can’t use them properly, how can he lead on this issue?
This is the man that the left believes takes the coronavirus and “the science” seriously.
This is the leader that the left says is going to guide the country safely through a pandemic.
This is the Great Democrat Hope.
This guy — who can’t even keep himself from wiping his nose with his fingers.
It’s actually quite shocking that he hasn’t contracted COVID-19 with those disgusting habits.
It’s all just ridiculous.
This isn’t a serious Democratic candidate, this is a puppet of the far-left and a nostalgia candidate for those who long for Obama who said nice things and governed either corruptly or incompetently. They want that back rather than have the guy that sometimes says mean things but governs effectively because… Orange Man Bad. The problem is, Biden isn’t Obama, so their candidate is literally the worst of both worlds — he is both thin-skinned and incompetent.
Good luck with that, Democrats.
