As 'elites' such as Gavin Newsom, Anthony Fauci and President Biden continue to make a mockery of their own pandemic guidelines, Americans are getting arrested at banks, tossed from restaurants and ejected from Costco for not wearing masks. Most recently, 'Climate Envoy' and former Secretary of State John Kerry was busted maskless on an American Airlines flight in violation of airline policy and a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) mandate requiring them on flights.
First reported by the Tennessee Star, Kerry can be seen reading a book in first class while letting his mask hang down from his ear.
@TheTNStar Exclusive: Biden’s @ClimateEnvoy John Kerry, took off his mask as he settled into a book in his first-class seat just before takeoff today on an @AmericanAir flight Boston to DC. He was not eating, nor drinking. He was simply flaunting Biden’s mandatory mask policy. pic.twitter.com/t1wDq9OtxD— ReporterMcCabe (@NeilWMcCabe2) March 17, 2021
In a statement to Fox News, the passenger that took the photo - who wished to remain anonymous - said that the president's climate convoy was wearing his mask at the boarding gate, only to ditch it after getting on the plane before other passengers.
"I salute our Very Special Presidential Envoy for Climate for not flying private, but instead flying first class commercial with the rest of us common folk," said the passenger, adding "And while he can’t bring himself to follow his own party’s mask restrictions, we should cut him some slack."
"Being an elite hypocrite is hard work!" the passenger then quipped.
When asked to clarify their mask policy, American Airlines tweeted that "Masks are required on board our aircraft, and we are looking into this."
In January, the CDC issued a mandate which kicked in last month requiring individuals to "wear masks that cover both the mouth and nose" while taking public transportation or at a "transportation hub."
