Here’s how he explained his actions…

President Biden was recently attacked on social media after pictures of him went viral after he strolled through a small store in Nantucket over the weekend without his mask on. The store had clear signage which demanded all employees and customers to be masked in the store.

Now, according to Newsmax, President Biden’s White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, recently spoke about Biden’s decision to not wear a mask in the store. Psaki justified Biden’s actions by saying that he follows all virus prevention recommendations given to him by the CDC.

A photo went viral of Biden standing in Murray’s Toggery Shop with a sign right in front of him saying ”FACE COVERING REQUIRED.”

When asked about the incident, Psaki responded, ”The president is somebody who follows the recommendations and the advice of the CDC. I don’t know what the circumstances were of that particular moment.”

Fox’s Peter Doocy then reminded Psaki that Biden was in a store with clear signage telling people to wear a mask.

”Well, again, Peter, our recommendation and advice continues to be for people to wear masks when they are required in establishments. I don’t know what this establishment was. The president obviously follows the advice of his health and medical team,” Psaki replied.
