Biden wore the mask until cameras panned to him and he removed it as curtains opened before he greeted Kimmel on stage with a handshake. The unmasked men also exchanged words inches apart before sitting down to conduct the interview.
“Here’s Joe Biden wearing a mask by himself backstage and then immediately taking it off when he goes to shake hands. Anyone still buying this mask charade is either too dumb to realize they’ve been played or psychologically unstable, probably both,” Travis wrote to caption video of the exchange he shared on Twitter.
Fox News contributor Joe Concha took notice of Travis’ tweet and mocked Biden for waiting until he was on air to remove the mask.
“To Clay’s point – watch this video. The president waits to be seen on camera before taking off the mask, only to shake Kimmel’s hand and speak well within 6 feet of the host for 24 minutes. Because science,” Concha wrote.
