Psaki On Biden Violating Mask Requirements: We Shouldn’t Focus On President Violating Policy

During Monday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki discussed a recent video of President Biden violating Washington D.C. mask requirements after he left a restaurant on Saturday, saying that we should not focus on “moments in time” when the President violates “overarching policy.”

The Washingtonian reported, “Video and photos from fellow customers show Biden maskless as he exited the restaurant just before 8 PM, a move that drew criticism from right-wing personalities on Twitter. DC still requires all indoor diners to wear a mask unless they are actively eating and drinking.”

Washington, D.C.’s, mask mandate states that “everyone (including fully vaccinated people) must wear masks in indoor public settings,” including “restaurants and bars (when not eating or drinking).”

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Psaki why the Bidens refused to follow the policy they have been promoting, saying, “There is a mask requirement inside D.C. restaurants, yet President Biden and the First Lady were not wearing masks while walking around a D.C. restaurant on Saturday. Why?”

“Well, I think what you’re referring to is a photo of them walking out of a restaurant after they, they had eaten, masks in hand where they had not yet put them back on yet,” Psaki responded.

“So I would say, of course, there are moments when we all don’t put masks back on as quickly as we should,” she continued. “But I don’t think we should lose, miss, lose the forest through the trees here and that our objective here is to get more people vaccinated. Make sure that schools and companies around the country can put in place requirements to save more lives and keep people safer, and you know, not overly focused on moments in time that don’t reflect overarching policy.”

“It was not just exiting the restaurant, though,” Doocy noted. “He was walking through the restaurant with no mask on, there is a carve-out for people under two or people who are actively eating or drinking. So I’m just curious why President was doing this.”

“I think I just addressed it, Peter,” Psaki said.

Breaking Monday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced he has put a vaccine mandate into place for all private-sector employers. The Mayor is citing a theoretical winter surge of COVID and the Omicron variant; something we know virtually nothing about, but has not shown to be as dangerous as its predecessors.

“We’ve got omicron as a new factor, we’ve got the colder weather, which is really going to create additional challenges with the delta variant, we’ve got holiday gatherings,” de Blasio said in an interview with MSNBC Monday morning.

“We in New York City have decided to use a preemptive strike to really do something bold to stop the further growth of Covid and the dangers it’s causing to all of us” added de Blasio. The mandate will take effect December 27 and requires all workers in private companies in New York City to “present proof of vaccination as a condition of employment” reports National Review.

Additionally, “after imposing a vaccine mandate for those who patronize leisure businesses such as restaurants and movie theaters a few months ago, de Blasi expanded that order Monday to include children aged five to eleven a demographic recently approved to receive the shot” adds National Review.
