At Tuesday’s White House coronavirus briefing, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany criticized former Vice President Joe Biden for wearing a mask during his outdoor event observing Memorial Day.
McEnany says “it’s a bit peculiar” that Biden doesn’t wear a mask when in the basement by his wife but “he’s wearing one outdoors when he’s socially distant.”

The CDC’s recommendation is only to wear masks in public settings. Biden’s house is not a public setting — even if he is with his wife.
In contrast, when President Donald Trump refused to wear a mask during his speech at the Ford plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan last week, he wasn’t following his CDC’s guidelines — or even the plant’s rules.
