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.

BREAKING: Hunter Biden Found Guilty on All Three Felony Charges

Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, was found guilty on all three felony charges on Tuesday. After a six-day trial, a jury concluded that the first son lied on a federal gun-purchase background-check form by falsely claiming he was not a drug addict. The jury deliberated for three hours, starting Monday afternoon following the conclusion of closing arguments.

Hunter Biden was convicted on two charges for lying about his crack-cocaine addiction on federal gun paperwork when he purchased a Colt Cobra revolver on October 12, 2018. Additionally, he was found guilty of a third charge for possessing the firearm while addicted to crack cocaine.

According to National Review, the criminal trial exposed deep rifts within the Biden family. Hunter’s ex-wife, Kathleen Buhle, and his deceased brother Beau Biden’s widow, Hallie Biden, testified against him. This created an emotional divide within the family, especially when Naomi Biden, the eldest daughter of Buhle and Hunter, testified for the defense, pitting mother against daughter.

Federal prosecutors Derek Hines and Leo Wise led the case against Hunter Biden as part of special counsel David Weiss’s legal team. Throughout the trial, Weiss was present in the courtroom, often seen conversing and eating chocolates during breaks.

Prosecutors presented what they described as “overwhelming evidence” of Hunter Biden’s drug addiction at the time he completed the gun purchase. This evidence included witness testimony, text messages, videos, images, bank records, and excerpts from Hunter’s memoir. Key testimonies from Hallie Biden, gun salesman Gordon Cleveland, and ex-girlfriend Zoe Kestan were crucial in establishing Hunter Biden’s pattern of drug use and his decision to lie about his addiction.

Defense attorney Abbe Lowell argued that Hunter Biden’s behavior had improved around the time of the gun purchase, asserting that he did not “knowingly” lie on the federal paperwork. However, the testimonies of Kestan and Cleveland, along with Hunter Biden’s own admissions of drug use in texts and memoir excerpts, posed significant challenges to the defense’s narrative.

Throughout the trial, Lowell conducted extensive cross-examinations of the prosecution’s witnesses and disputed the context of the evidence presented. However, Leo Wise’s cross-examination of Naomi Biden, where he scrutinized her text messages with her father from October 2018, proved to be a pivotal moment, undermining her defense testimony.

Before the verdict, President Biden stated he would respect the jury’s decision and would not pardon his son if convicted. At the trial’s onset, President Biden issued a statement expressing pride in his son’s efforts to overcome his drug addiction.

Hunter Biden is scheduled to face another trial in September on nine federal tax charges related to his alleged failure to pay over $1.4 million in taxes over four years.
