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.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
