Covid Hypocrite of the Week: John Kerry
Former Senator, Secretary of State, and Presidential candidate John Kerry now serves as U.S. special presidential envoy for climate.
That means President Biden is his direct boss. And President Biden has been quite vocal about demanding that everyone wear masks while traveling.
He directed the CDC to publish an order that “People must wear masks that cover both the mouth and nose when awaiting, boarding, traveling on, or disembarking public conveyances.”
But apparently those rules don’t apply to people above the law, like John Kerry. He was photographed on a recent flight casually reading after removing his mask shortly after boarding the flight— and no, he was not eating or drinking at the time.
But Kerry is a seasoned hypocrite. In 2010, when he was the Senator from Massachusetts calling for higher taxes, Kerry saved about half a million dollars in state taxes by parking his yacht in the neighboring state of Rhode Island.
