The coronavirus vaccine is still in the process of being distributed and administered across the nation. Despite the presence of this vaccine, Americans are still being advised to social distance and wear face coverings.
Yesterday, Biden-Harris gathered with doctors to witness and celebrate the distribution of the 50 millionth COVID-19 vaccine. The event took place at the White House and before Biden spoke with governors online to promote his American Rescue Plan; this relief package notably contains less than 9% of funds for coronavirus relief.
However, the celebration of the 50 millionth coronavirus vaccine didn’t go off without a hitch. In fact, Breitbart News reports that Biden forgot his face mask after months of demanding that everyone must mask up.
A Face Mask Slip-up
At the White House event commemorating the 50 millionth coronavirus vaccine, Biden once again stated that Americans must wear masks. This is in keeping with the Democrat president’s executive action mandating mask-wearing, despite Biden violating this executive action within hours of its inception.

However, when Biden walked away from the podium after this speech, he did so maskless. In fact, the 46th president went up to doctors and carried on an entire conversation without any face mask or social distancing. Only after Kamala Harris reminded Biden to put on his face mask did he return to the podium.
As the president walked to retrieve his face covering, microphones picked up him saying “my mask, my mask.”
Reactions from the Public
Biden’s forgetfulness of his face mask didn’t take long to spread across the internet. Some people stated that the mainstream media would have a field day if Trump were to forget to put on his mask when speaking with doctors, especially after consistently screaming for Americans to wear masks.
Others stated that Biden forgetting to grab his mask after leaving the podium was a sign of cognitive decline. These speculations have followed Biden since his presidential campaign and the plethora of blunders he made while speaking.

Many Americans still continue to think that Harris will eventually replace Biden as president and wind up finishing his term between now and 2024.
