There was an awkward moment Friday when, just an hour after tweeting how he was looking forward to welcoming Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga to the White House, and under-the-weather President Biden was a no-show, leaving it to Vice President Kamala Harris to fill in.

Biden did meet with Suga later, where he referred to 29-year-old Master’s champion Hideki Matsuyama as a “Japanese boy coming over here.” The two then sat down for a meal of a burger and fries — with Harris looming nearby — and as Brit Hume noticed, Biden, despite being vaccinated and sitting down for a meal, was photographed wearing two masks.

They could wear those revolutionary nose masks researchers invented for just such an occasion.

He really couldn’t be doing more to convince people the vaccine doesn’t work.
