At CNN’s drive-in town hall with Joe Biden Thursday night, COVID-19 was obviously one of the main topics. As a matter of fact, Biden talked about wearing masks and social distancing on numerous occasions, but one of those rules was obviously suspended during at least one commercial break:
Joe Biden and Anderson Cooper are making a point of social distancing during the CNN Town Hall while on the stage.
But when they think they’ve gone to commercial break, they get so close to each other that Biden is whispering in Cooper’s ear: pic.twitter.com/ClZXrxFfSo

Social distancing only when the cameras are rolling

Maybe Biden and Cooper should say they were having a protest so it’s considered acceptable:
Where's the outdoor government court to issue them a fine???https://t.co/bWl2VmbogC

Can you catch Covid if the cameras aren’t rolling?

Biden's social distancing pretense plays out just like the media's mask on mask off shenanigans… complete hypocricy https://t.co/n9FPkvZlOt

Maybe the media rules for town halls featuring Democrats are the same as for riots — it’s perfectly safe if the substance of what’s being done is “acceptable.”
Do as I say, not as I do.

That’s how it usually works, so pardon our skepticism.
