Joe Biden appeared to be speaking without a mask, coughing and then greeting the attendees of an event with a handshake.
This happened during a speech promoting the president’s “Build Back Better” campaign at the NJ Transit Meadowlands Maintenance Complex in Kearney, New Jersey.

Biden coughs before he shake hands with attendees
CNN reported, “President Joe Biden went to New Jersey to promote his economic agenda on Monday, amid a major week of negotiations with Democrats to pass portions of his sweeping, multi-trillion dollar agenda.”
“The visit offered Biden a chance to pitch both his plans — a bipartisan infrastructure package and a social safety net package — ahead of his travel to Europe for the Group of 20 conference and the United Nations Climate Conference,” the news outlet noted.
Biden is clearly seen coughing in his hand at the end. He then walks down the stairs to greet everyone with a handshake.
This clearly violates current CDC guidelines, regardless of whether it was a cough or a clearing of his throat. The video does not show any evidence that hand sanitizer was used, or other forms of hand washing.

Polls show significant numbers of Americans don’t support vaccine mandates
In spite of Biden’s behavior at the event, his administration still insists on mandatory vaccines and promotes wearing masks even for those who have been vaccinated.
But, surveys show that Americans are opposed to mandates and COVID-19 activities currently supported by the White House.
The Associated Press reported in late September, “A survey of Americans on President Joe Biden’s plan to require most workers to get either vaccinated or regularly tested for COVID-19 finds a deep and familiar divide: Democrats are overwhelmingly for it, while most Republicans are against it.”
“With the highly contagious delta variant driving deaths up to around 2,000 per day, the poll released Thursday by The Associated Press – NORC Center for Public Affairs Research showed that overall, 51% say they approve of the Biden requirement, 34% disapprove and 14% hold neither opinion,” AP noted.
Twitter reacts to video of Biden coughing and shaking hands in NJ
One popular conservative pundit asks if this is how Biden “stops the spread.”
Biden “stops the spread” of disease by coughing in his hand, then touching every person he sees.
Imagine the fury if this were done by 45.?https://t.co/2fwCgo6YDZ

While a USA Today journalist questions whether Biden potentially violating his own administration’s public health safety standards should be newsworthy.

Many of us have learned hygiene skills in elementary school. Some follow CDC guidelines.
As for President Biden, we’ll let the video speak for itself.
