From forgetting social distancing in a town hall, Joe Biden masks for a virtual interview.
The Democrat Presidential candidate would’ve more aptly used the mask during the CNN town hall when he approached Anderson Cooper, to make it more believable. The pair drew online criticisms on the incident.
In an interview with WBay, the former Vice President can be seen wearing a face mask, making it more difficult for him to express himself. Although this particular interview was conducted online.
Joe Biden seems to only use the face mask as a prop, which health experts earlier said may create a false sense of security, yet advised to be worn after emerging evidence that COVID-19 could be spread through airborne transmission.
Biden was at Manitowoc, Wisconsin, at the time of the virtual interview. He previously toured the Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry, and yet again attacked President Trump in his speech.
The Democrat criticized the administration for the handling of the surging COVID-19 cases and the death toll. He blamed President Trump for turning over the control of the pandemic to the governor without providing resources.
Joe Biden also said the President is endangering the lives of his supporters in his campaign rallies.
“We just watched him hold an indoor rally with thousands of people, many of whom weren’t wearing masks despite the clear evidence that we’re putting every one of those people’s lives at risk,” the former Vice President said.
President Trump recently held an indoor rally in Henderson, Nevada, when the Democratic governor denied his request to use outdoor venues.
Tim Murtaugh, President Trump’s campaign spokesman, said: “If you can join tens of thousands of people protesting in the streets, gamble in a casino, or burn down small businesses in riots, you can gather peacefully under the 1st Amendment to hear from the President of the United States.”
An ad earlier released show Biden stating, “Wisconsinites are suffering the consequences of President Trump’s historic failure of leadership.” He added that the President has yet to plan in controlling the coronavirus after downplaying its severity.
Biden also claimed to “trust the experts and the science” if elected President.
We are unsure though on the science behind his wearing of a mask during a virtual interview.
