As Twitchy reported earlier, a photo of climate envoy John Kerry not wearing the federally required mask on an American Airlines flight made the rounds on Twitter, with plenty noting that 2-year-olds had been thrown off of flights for not wearing a mask. American Airlines said they were looking into it, but Kerry says it’s “malarkey.”
@TheTNStar Exclusive: Biden’s @ClimateEnvoy John Kerry, took off his mask as he settled into a book in his first-class seat just before takeoff today on an @AmericanAir flight Boston to DC. He was not eating, nor drinking. He was simply flaunting Biden’s mandatory mask policy. pic.twitter.com/t1wDq9OtxD

Feels like there’s some St. Patrick’s day “malarkey” afoot on Twitter. Let’s be clear: If I dropped my mask to one ear on a flight, it was momentary. I wear my mask because it saves lives and stops the spread. It’s what the science tells us to do.

Why would he drop his mask to one ear? To read?
What's interesting here is literally everything you said is a lie.

It's amazing that people are actually defending this faker.

Twitter has found this statement to be untrue, no mask is seen in the photo.

So one ear mask wearing is now ok? I was told we needed to double mask. Why is it ok for you to wear it off your face, but I have to wear it fully on all the time?
— JohnFlat (@johnflat) March 18, 2021
You dropped your mask all right.
But it wasn't helping anyway – we've known you're an habitual liar for a long time

“Let’s be clear:” Is that statement suppose to mean something?

This is the most strangely worded admittance of guilt/apology I’ve ever heard.

And "momentarily" moved your reading glasses to the tip of your nose where a mask would be? Lot of 2 yr olds getting kicked of flight for same thing. pic.twitter.com/g8sUXq5d6o

Momentary? Kinda like Cuomo momentarily assaulted/harassed 8 different women? It amazes me the hypocrisy that you Dems try to justify. Rather than making excuses why don't you simply lead by example.

Just wondering. Why would you drop your mask even temporarily unless you were eating or drinking?

It shouldn't even have been momentary. It was long enough for someone to snap a picture. Your momentary lapse put lives at risk. Their blood is on your hands if they get sick.
Am I doing this right?

I love how all the sheep are defending this idiot but cheered when they kicked a 4 year old disabled kid with a doctors note off a plane for not wearing one.
— Lenny (@The_Omega_Man) March 18, 2021
Right, but we have witnessed plenty of militant flight attendants who have removed passengers for much less. You must be “special”
— Amy (@BradyQuinn1) March 18, 2021
Actually sir, the science says it is about 1.8% effective, but I don’t think you’re really talking about science.
But it’s ok. We’re used to politicians doing whatever they want: having parties, dinners, traveling, buying jewelry, getting hair done, when we, the laymen, cannot.

This idea that you believe in science is malarkey.

So what can be CLEARLY seen as NO mask ? on your mouth or either ear by even the staunchest of your supporters means you are telling the truth but our eyes are lying. ???
Quit being a dick and just say you messed up.

Not helpful. Admit your mistake, own up to it. I expect better behavior than previous administration, but also better and truthful responses to the mistakes.

We missed having John Kerry to kick around. Maybe he should wear a bunny suit all the time because … the science.
