After months of strict COVID restrictions, President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden posed maskless with former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalyn Carter. The First Couple took the photo along their “Getting America Back on Track” tour in the Carter’s Georgia home.

Former President’s Carter Center tweeted out the photo, tagging both Bidens. Both Carters are nonagenarians, Jimmy is 96-years-old and Rosayln is 93.

But most who saw the picture criticized the Biden’s for removing their masks. Especially since at their ages, the Carter’s are vulnerable to the coronavirus. It’s also because President Biden, who is vaccinated, still wears a mask even outside, despite CDC guidance.

The Washington Examiner’s Jerry Dunleavy accused the President of mixed messaging. “Biden wears a mask when he is on Zoom calls but not when he is posing with a 93 year old, because Science,” he wrote in a tweet.

Obianuju Ekeocha, an author who describes herself as “pro-life, pro-woman, pro-family, pro-marriage and pro-Africa” also called out the Bidens for wearing masks “EVERYWHERE” but not on this occasion.

The Money Mevaser contributor Joel M. Petlin suggested that the Biden’s are putting on a show when they choose to wear and not wear their masks.

Yet others were not so worried about the risk of the four infecting each other with the virus. Instead, they accused the Biden’s of virtue signaling.

This was the first time the two couples have met in person since Biden became President.

Voice of OC reports:

According to an affidavit from FBI special agent Brian Adkins, Rafiei was arrested on attempted bribery after federal agents allege she told a cannabis company that hired her she planned on bribing two Irvine City Councilmembers in exchange for favorable legislation in the city. 

“CW1 began to devise a scheme whereby CW1 would solicit money from CHS1 and CHS2 with the intention of paying bribes to two elected members of the Irvine City Council in exchange for the Council Members performing official acts, resulting in the passage of favorable cannabis laws,” states the affidavit.
