‘That’s not a plan, dude’: Biden ripped for saying best way to battle Covid-19 is to ‘wear a mask all the time’

‘That’s not a plan, dude’: Biden ripped for saying best way to battle Covid-19 is to ‘wear a mask all the time’
While criticizing President Donald Trump’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, Joe Biden recommended people wearing masks “all the time,” setting off critics on social media.

"I would make sure everyone was encouraged to wear a mask all the time,” Biden said during Thursday’s presidential debate while discussing his potential plans for ending the pandemic, which includes more rapid testing and national standards for states reopening their economies.

Trump has mocked Biden for his near-constant mask wearing in the past. While the president walked onto the debate stage not wearing a mask, Biden did. He also held up the mask when encouraging people to wear them multiple times.

His “wear a mask all the time” comment raised concern among critics on social media, already tired of the mask wearing currently required in many states.

“[To be honest], I probably should wear a mask while I’m pooping,” the Daily Caller’s Geoffrey Ingersoll tweeted

“Umm, people don’t wanna wear a mask all the time Joe,” podcaster Dave Rubin added.

“Biden’s covid plan: mask mania. Masks all the time. Masks masks masks,” radio host Buck Sexton wrote.

Biden has floated the idea of a national mask mandate multiple times, though he’s also said he isn’t sure if the president has the authority to enact such an order. At Thursday’s debate, moderator Kristen Welker did not follow up after Biden’s “mask” comment about any potential mandates.
