“Sure, sure,” Biden said. “I mean, but what I’m going to do, though, because the likelihood of my being able to do outside and people not come up to me is not … very high. So it’s like, look, you and I took our masks off when I came in because look at the distance we are. But if we were, in fact, sitting there talking to one another close, I’d have my mask on, and I bet you’d have a mask on, even though we’ve both been vaccinated.”
“And so, it’s a small precaution to take that has a profound impact. It’s a patriotic responsibility, for God’s sake. It’s making sure that your wife, your children, if, in fact, they haven’t been vaccinated, making sure that they’re not going to get sick,” he concluded.
Biden told @craigmelvin that he would wear a mask if he was sitting close to him, even if they are both vaccinated.
That goes against the latest CDC guidance, which says "you can gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart."

At what point do we call Biden an anti-vaxxer for his scaremongering about how little vaccines accomplish? https://t.co/4OqhcEWTto

This doesn't encourage people to get the vaccine. The President should lead by showing that vaccinations work. https://t.co/F5sBuT5Dws
