Former Vice President Joe Biden was caught apparently ignoring social distancing and mask guidelines during the start of a break in his softball CNN town hall Thursday evening.
Seconds after Anderson Cooper announced a break, Joe Biden can be seen holding his mask in hands and approaching Cooper, and whispering into his ear.

What Biden whispered in Cooper’s ear is anyone’s guess. Probably something like “Thanks for all these softball questions.”
Both Cooper and Biden reportedly tested negative for the coronavirus earlier in the day, but Biden and the Democrats have repeatedly criticized President Trump for not wearing masks during White House events, even though it is widely known that President Trump is regularly tested and that anyone coming into contact with the president of the United States is also tested. Biden himself has argued that wearing a mask in public is a sign of leadership and sets the example for others to wear a mask.
Presidents are supposed to lead by example — and every day Donald Trump proves how incapable he is of doing that. https://t.co/B0t497xxHc

Like Nancy Pelosi and others on the left who have, by their own actions, shown that they believe themselves to have their own separate rules to follow, Biden is a hypocrite.
