President Joe Biden bizarrely urged people to show “kindness and respect” for vaccinated people who want to keep on wearing masks in spite of federal guidance that they do not need to.
The comments were made during a press conference at the White House on Thursday and made the Twitter rounds on Friday — where he was deservedly mocked.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has said that fully vaccinated people are fine to stop wearing their masks, both indoors and outdoors, regardless of gathering size.
“Be patient with one another,” Biden said. “Some may say, ‘I just feel more comfortable continuing to wear a mask.’ They may feel that way.”
The president urged people to “please treat them with kindness and respect.”
“We’ve had too much conflict, too much bitterness, too much anger, too much polarization of this issue about wearing masks. Let’s put it to rest,” he said.
Pres. Biden: If you see someone in a mask, “please treat them with kindness and respect.”

Notably, however, he did not tell the weirdo mask cultists to show “kindness and respect” to those who opt not to wear them.
So… he’s saying don’t be kind to people who aren’t wearing them? https://t.co/WCREvxsj3n

Same guy who said vaxxed or masked? And called it a “rule”? Just checking. Here’s the thing with everyone in government and these bureaucrats who talk out of both sides of their mouths.. when you lie, it’s harder to keep that up and remember what you said. https://t.co/WCiO9l3ENX

Biden scolds Americans again, but reverses the vilified to people “WITH masks” pretending we didn’t witness the hysteria caused by not wearing one. https://t.co/9yAqYv8GGH

I think it’s more the people who don’t wear masks that are attacked . Always pretending it’s the reverse .

His message didn’t just bother the right, the left was also offended that he implied it is wrong to wear the masks they love so dearly.
So, wait. Now if we wear our mask, we are wrong?! WTF?!!!
