Biden’s Coronavirus Czar Pressed on Why Vaccinated President Keeps Wearing Masks

White House COVID-19 response coordinator Jeff Zients was asked Sunday to explain why President Biden still wears a mask during press briefings despite being fully vaccinated and standing in a room with fully vaccinated journalists.

“Is it really necessary for a fully vaccinated person to wear a mask at a limited indoor gathering if everyone there is vaccinated?” CNN host Jake Tapper asked Zients during an interview on “State of the Union.”

“Well, the CDC [U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] has given guidance that when you’re with family and friends that are vaccinated in small groups you don’t need a mask,” Zients said. But Tapper pressed, “So why does President Biden in a room full of vaccinated journalists, everybody in that room vaccinated, why does he need to wear a mask?”
