We were pretty sure that President Biden would take off his mask to deliver his address to Congress Wednesday night, but it’s funny to see Vice President Kamala Harris and Speaker Nancy Pelosi sitting behind him and masked up. Attendance was limited to 200 to allow social distancing, and everyone in the chamber has been vaccinated. And they’re all wearing masks and giving elbow-bumps.
Every senator and member of Congress has been vaccinated. So has the president, vice president, and speaker. So has every cabinet official and Supreme Court justice. Literally everyone in the room is vaccinated. So why are they only allowing 200 people into the house chamber?

All three of these people are fully vaccinated…
Why are they all wearing masks? pic.twitter.com/BA8atWSReB

this is like the mask olympics for vaccinated people

It is RIDICULOUS that the entire Congress isn't present. They are vaccinated. CDC guidance says vaccinated people don't need masks indoors or to be six feet apart. A pathetic and weak showing.

You could have a full building of fully vaccinated people, without masks, but got to keep pretending that vaccinated people will spread the virus to each other because of following the #science.

So I guess Biden is impervious to the COVID virus lurking in the House chamber that everyone else is masking up for tonight. #JointAddress

Hmmm…every Member of Congress and Senator has been vaccinated. Interesting to see @VP @SpeakerPelosi wearing masks along with those present. Are we safe after being vaccinated or not? Curious.

They’re all so virtuous, yet also happen to be anti science and most definitely don’t believe in the well documented efficacy of the vaccine.

And they are all wearing masks. Ridiculous.

To present a narrative that is a falsehood, and hoping that Americans will take the bait. This is a Fascist Party looking for a Riefenstahl moment.

They're exploiting the COVID pandemic for dangerously high levels of spending and control, and if they admit the reality of us moving past the pandemic, they worry that they won't be able to have the excuse for their big spending/big power packages. https://t.co/uzidy9an2Y

Yep, they don't even listen to their own CDC guidances. This is administration is more against science than any in history.

It’s about where he polls well….they know he gets high marks for implementing the Trump vax rollout. Gotta ride that.

The masks are so ridiculous among vaccinated people seated many feet apart in a huge room with high ceilings. I question the credibility and intelligence of these people.

Vaccinated stupid commies. There fixed your tweet. ?

The former president of Planned Parenthood actually has a good point:
Why such an empty #JointAddress? I understand the need for President Biden to send a message that there's a pandemic. But what about the message of how effective #covid19 #vaccines are?
Imagine if only vaccinated people could attend–but they don't need to mask or distance. pic.twitter.com/wFTWUOq71O

'Stop with this BS': Joe Biden's messaging on COVID19 is impossible to understand, even when he (briefly) takes his mask off outside [videos] https://t.co/olayPZfGEG

WHOOPS! Biden meant to say ‘I applaud Canada’ but instead named a different country
