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.

No wonder Dr. Anthony Fauci was in no rush for the global COVID-19 pandemic to come to an end; it was making him a very wealthy man. According to a report from the non-profit OpenTheBooks,  a government spending watchdog group, Fauci and his wife’s networth grew by $5 million during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The combined wealth of the 81-year-old retiring director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and his bioethicist wife, Christine Grady, soared from $7.5 million in 2019 to $12.6 million at the end of 2021.”

“Despite becoming a figure of controversy, the system has rewarded Dr. Fauci handsomely,” the group’s CEO, Adam Andrzejewski, told Fox News Digital. “While Dr. Fauci has been a government bureaucrat for more than 55 years, his household net worth skyrocketed during the pandemic.”

Specific chunks of money came in part to “major salary increases, cash awards and royalties, according to the report.”

“Fauci’s soaring net worth was based on career-end salary spiking, lucrative cash prizes awarded by non-profit organizations around the world and an ever-larger investment portfolio,” Andrzejewski said.

“He is the top-paid federal employee, his first-year golden parachute retirement pension is the largest in federal history, and he’s accepting $1 million prizes from foreign non-profits,” he added.

The New York Post reports:

Last year, Fauci raked in lucrative awards from nonprofits, including $1 million from the Dan David Foundation for “speaking truth to power” and “defending science” during the Trump Administration.

He kept $910,400 of that award, while roughly 10% went to scholarship winners, according to OpenTheBooks report.

His total compensation was $456,028 last year, up from the $434,312 he earned in 2020.

Overall, the couple’s investments also increased by more than $900,000 in 2021 while their portfolios — which included trust, retirement and college education accounts — jumped $800,000 in 2020, according to the analysis.

At the end of last year, Fauci’s account totaled $10.2 million and  Grady’s had reached $2.4 million in investments.
