When asked about wearing a mask despite being fully vaccinated, President Joe Biden said “it’s a small precaution to take that has a profound impact. It’s a patriotic responsibility, for God sake.”

NBC host Craig Melvin said many people are looking forward to shedding their masks after being double vaccinated, and asked Biden if he will be one of them.

“Are you going to be one of these folks now? Are we no longer going to see the president of the United States outside with a mask on” he asked.

Biden said when he is outside people frequently come up to him, so he’ll keep the mask on.

“So look,” Biden continued, “you and I took our masks off when I came in, because look at the distance we are, but if we were in fact sitting there talking to one another close, I’d have my mask on and I’d imagine you’d have your mask on even though we’ve both been vaccinated.”

Biden says he is doing it for other people that the vaccinated person may come in contact with.

“It’s making sure your wife, your children, you’re, if in fact they haven’t been vaccinated, making sure that they’re not going to get sick,” Biden said.

Fox News Xmas Tree

Just before 12:15 am Wednesday morning, an arsonist set fire to the 50-foot tree in front of Fox News’ Midtown headquarters on 6th avenue. The suspect, a 49-year-old with three prior arrests, was quickly caught and taken into custody.

The man has two previous arrests for drug possession and one for public intoxication. The motive is unclear, and Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said detectives are looking into whether mental illness was a factor.

Christmas Tree

The suspect accused of setting the News Corp. Christmas tree on fire is taken into custody by the NYPD.

“The suspect is identified as 49-year-old Craig Tamanaha, who is homeless, with a last known address in Brooklyn” reports ABC 7 New York. Police said the suspect climbed up “the metal superstructure” underneath the artificial tree and lit papers he had brought with him on fire, then shoved the papers into the tree structure.

He then climbed down and watched from the street level as it burned, and he was spotted by building security who pointed the man out to police officers posted in nearby Rockefeller Center,” reports ABC.

A lighter was found in his possession, and he has been charged with criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, arson, criminal nuisance, endangering others, criminal trespass, criminal tampering and disorderly conduct.

Fox says it will rebuild the tree, which took more than 21 hours to assemble and consisted of 10,000 glass ornaments and 100,000 lights.
