During a Friday interview on NBC’s Today Show, host Craig Melvin asked Biden whether he would continue to wear a mask outdoors now that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say fully vaccinated people don’t have to.
“Sure,” Biden replied, adding however that the likelihood of being outside without people coming up to him was “not very high.”
The president claimed that if he were sitting closer to Melvin, they would be wearing masks “even though we’ve both been vaccinated,” before calling face masks “a small precaution” that has a “profound impact.”
“It’s a patriotic responsibility for God’s sake!” Biden argued, concluding that it’s about “making sure that your wife, your children if in fact they haven’t been vaccinated” are “not going to get sick.”

Bumbling Joe Biden Can’t Find His Covid Mask
President Joe Biden was mocked on Thursday during an event in Duluth, Georgia after he frantically searched for his face mask while outside at the podium to no avail, telling supporters, “I’m looking for my mask. I’m in trouble.”
Biden’s brain eventually kicked in and he found his mask in the last place he would have ever expected…IN HIS POCKET!
