Do as I say, not as I do is back in effect in Joe Biden's White House.
After Jill Biden tested positive, the protocol is for Joe to mask up when he is in close contact with other people just in case he was infected by Jill, reported ABC News.
Yet, there was Joe, entering the briefing room, sans mask, then having the audacity to ask the media not to tell on him, reported USA Today.
Don't Tell on Me
Jill tested positive several days ago, so Joe has about 10 days of living in this protocol.
Now, they expect everyone in the nation to follow the rules, yet Joe is literally laughing about them.
He told the media, “But they keep telling me, because it has to be 10 days or something, I gotta keep wearing them.
“But don’t tell them I didn’t have it on when I walked in. Alright?”
Biden says he has to keep wearing a mask, and says "But don't tell 'em I didn't have it on when I walked in." pic.twitter.com/bohDSpt3nw

Now, you can hear that the line did not go over particularly well, as there was just a whisper of a few giggles when Biden made the statement.
"They" said I have to wear a mask. Don't tell "them" I didn't have it on.
Who exactly is they. Who is actually running the country. pic.twitter.com/PkhxQk9lnf

Biden did not put the mask on during the remainder of the press conference, either, so he now has that to contend with.
Joe also made the mistake of saying "they" told him, so social media immediately blew up with people wanting to know who "they" are that are giving orders to the president of the United States.
This is an easy fix for Biden… just put the mask on and do what are you asking everyone else to do.
People are already starting to freak out with whispers of another possible lockdown, so he is not doing anyone any favors in his party with this behavior as the election season gets going full tilt.
But hey, that is on Joe, because every mistake he makes just helps our cause.
