Dr. Anthony Fauci returned to the White House press briefing Thursday without wearing a mask, despite President Joe Biden signing an executive order requiring that masks be worn on federal property.
Fauci wore a mask up to the podium, but removed it after he began speaking.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki also removed her mask after replacing Fauci at the podium.
Earlier Thursday, even President Biden spoke and signed executive orders at the White House without wearing a mask.
During the briefing, Fauci said that Americans “absolutely should be wearing a mask” and wearing them properly.
Journalists appeared delighted that Fauci had returned to the briefing room, but especially New York Times reporter Michael Scheer, who asked Fauci to share his emotional response to the change of administrations. Via – Breitbart
