Last week, a fully vaccinated President Joe Biden showed up to an international online climate summit wearing a mask. Inquiring minds wanted to know what the mask was for, exactly.
Well, today, Jen Psaki gave them their answer:

Hmmm. OK. Well, maybe it’ll make more sense if you actually listen to her explanation:
Peter Doocy calls out Biden for still wearing a mask even though he was the only world leader on Zoom wearing one (and since he's long been vaccinated).
Jen Psaki insists he "was sending a message the world that he is putting in place precautions" as he was working.

Or maybe the message is “my administration doesn’t actually understand science at all.”
He’s sending a message alright, just not the one he thinks

Definitely sending a message, not the one that was intended though.

I don't think the message he sent is the one he hoped to convey.

The “message” Joe Biden is actually sending could be a very destructive one.
But what message is he sending to those on the fence about getting vaccinated?

That he doesn’t believe vaccines work???? https://t.co/6b1pgLEx3A

What is that message? "Vaccines don't work"? https://t.co/QD0a6Oe06y

Another round of applause for the Party of Science™.
