Early Wednesday afternoon, President Biden signed some executive orders, and one of them is to require masks and social distancing on all federal properties:

But as the inauguration celebrations continued later on, Biden’s family members had a brief celebration at the Lincoln Memorial:

It’s a cute picture and we have no problem with it, other than the fact that everybody knows what the media reaction would have been if these were Trump family members…
So, we’re now done with media mask shaming? https://t.co/Oa9NcH2Ru2

Yeah, just imagine “superspreader taking place in violation of a presidential order” comments from reporters if those were family members of a Republican.

Their grandfather signed an executive order mandating the wearing of masks on all Federal property just hours earlier.
This is beyond belief. https://t.co/8yHQgaBNsN

But didn’t he sign a Mask Mandate for all Federal property and social distancing requirements?
And under 8 hours you’re saying his family is already ignoring them? https://t.co/5w7SOzGy3W

Apparently the rules don't apply as long as you are "family"….https://t.co/4RUAkk5oMA

When does their grandfather’s executive order on wearing masks in federal buildings take effect? https://t.co/iI45Cinr5L

In fairness, however, even the president was spotted not yet heeding his own EO:
So… no mask on federal propriety per the executive order signed today? https://t.co/8QxUxW0nt4
