More than two years after the initial government imposed “guidance” and “recommendations” for masking were set forth, the inanity of COVID theater persists in upper echelons as President Joe Biden continued a flagrant disregard for any consistency in his counterintuitive usage of face coverings.
Biden has repeatedly expressed his stance regarding addressing the pandemic and its remnant concerns as one of “trusting the science.” Yet, after setting down in South Korea as part of a diplomatic trip across southeast Asia, the president once again reminded the American people that the only science he follows is political science.
After Air Force One landed in Pyeongtaek, South Korea, the president emerged from the shadowy interior of the plane wearing his signature aviator sunglasses and a face mask. While proceeding down the steps to the tarmac alone, Biden first saw fit to remove his shades and then, only after he was within handshaking distance of the awaiting envoy, South Korean foreign minister Park Jin, he took off his mask.

“Science!” Outkick’s Clay Travis declared on Twitter upon posting the video. “Seriously, is this pointless, anti-science masking insanity ever going to end?”
The masks forever crowd attempted to salvage the president’s “complete absurdity,” as commentator Ian Miller put it, by noting he had been inside and then he was in the open air.
Indoor (aircraft) vs outdoor (open air). Basic guidelines many don’t seem to even know.

Unfortunately, their arguments remained baseless as ever as the president’s trip through South Korea continued with all sots of intermittent displays of “science.” While indoors giving an address to a gathering or sitting close with South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol, Biden showed no concern for masking. Even at a conference table he went from wearing the mask to setting it aside.

Then while outside with just as many people in proximity of him as he had during the airport greeting, he was filmed wearing the mask and plowing ahead with the theatrics. These sorts of shows have been a mainstay of the Biden administration that has often appeared more interested in garnering compliance from the citizenry than it has in actually responding to the current threat level with in kind measures.

In fact, if the president has been consistent on one thing throughout his administrations handling of the pandemic, it’s that there really is no serious concern for the vast majority of people when it comes to COVID.

The reality on the ground is that the majority of Americans are over the panic and have been for a while. More and more people have come to terms with their own ability to analyze risk and act accordingly. But, as they have proceeded with court challenges in an attempt maintain a stranglehold on authority to mandate, so too will they refuse to give up the optics of fear.
It was clear before he had been inaugurated that the first 100 days of masking wouldn’t be based on science, and what he is doing now and will likely try in the future, will be just as much a “public policy mistake.”
Instead of projecting statesmanship, wisdom, and strength, he projects stupidity…. Every. Single. Time.

You almost have to respect the complete absurdity of wearing a mask to walk down the steps outside by yourself only to take it off when you approach other people https://t.co/oKDKvMg6T2
