Joe Biden had some important news to share.
Millions of Americans were watching.
And Democrat hypocrisy was on full display Monday during Joe Biden’s appearance on national television.
Despite taking two vaccines and two booster shots, Joe Biden recently tested positive for COVID.
But Biden had an important update from Afghanistan to share with the American people on Monday.
So even though he tested positive for COVID, Biden decided to address the nation live from a podium at the White House on Monday evening.
Before his speech, Biden’s staff assured the American people that he was following CDC guidelines and wearing a mask around others.
“It is important to wear a mask or respirator when you are sick or caring for someone who is sick with COVID-19,” the CDC website states.
On July 25, White House COVID response coordinator Ashish Jha told the public that “CDC guidance suggests that [Biden] wear a mask when he’s around others.”
That’s why she assured Americans that “the President is going to follow CDC guidance.”
Biden violated CDC Guidelines
On Saturday, Joe Biden tested positive for COVID.
But on Monday evening, Joe Biden appeared on national television to announce that a U.S. drone strike had killed al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in Afghanistan.
However, despite testing positive for COVID two days earlier, Joe Biden violated his own CDC’s guidelines by refusing to wear a mask.

Even worse, Joe Biden turned around and tested positive once again for COVID on Tuesday, just one day after he addressed the nation without wearing a mask.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Joe Biden ignored CDC guidelines.
On July 21, Joe Biden posted a photo of himself on Twitter just days after he tested positive for COVID.
“Folks, I’m doing great,” Biden wrote. “Thanks for your concern,” he continued. “Just called Senator Casey, Congressman Cartwright, and Mayor Cognetti (and my Scranton cousins!) to send my regrets for missing our event today.”
“Keeping busy!” Biden added.

Although Joe Biden appeared by himself in the photo, as several critics pointed out, one or multiple individuals had to be in close proximity to the President in order to take the photos.
The irony is that Joe Biden has been a stickler for routinely wearing a mask on multiple occasions when he didn’t have COVID.
At one point Joe Biden even wore two masks at the same time.
Americans are fed up with the hypocrisy
Democrats have always been defined by their double standards and blatant hypocrisy.
But over the past two years, their hypocrisy was on full display for all of America to see.
Hardly a week passed during the pandemic without a Democrat politician who supported mask mandates, vaccine passports, and lockdowns got caught violating their own rules.
Gavin Newsom, Andrew Cuomo, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and numerous prominent Democrats routinely violated the very same rules and mandates they fought to impose on the American people.
Democrats are already facing a tough political atmosphere in November.
And Joe Biden violating the rules he demands everyone else follow will not help Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi’s chances this fall.
