On a sunny Friday afternoon at Amtrak’s 30th Street Station, President Joe Biden delivered remarks outside without a mask while wearing a blue ball cap.
When he finished his speech, the president stepped away from the podium without his mask, approaching a fellow official, and spoke to him briefly before fist-bumping him in the chest.
“You ready?” he asked two of his granddaughters before walking slowly down the station platform without his face covering, arm-in-arm with one of them.
Biden’s behavior at the Amtrak event appeared completely defendable under the new CDC guidelines for vaccinated Americans.
He shed his mask at a small crowd of presumably vaccinated local government and Amtrak officials gathered outside on the platform and walked outside with his granddaughters Maisy and Finnegan.
But a day earlier, the president awkwardly fumbled for his mask after speaking at an outdoor drive-in car rally speech in Georgia.
After calling up Sen. Raphael Warnock and Sen. Jon Ossoff to the stage, First Lady Jill Biden approached and pointed at her own mask to remind her husband to put his mask back on.
As Jackie Wilson’s “High and Higher” blared through the outdoor speakers Biden repeatedly flipped through his binder of papers looking for his lost mask.
