White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany questioned Tuesday why former Vice President Joe Biden was wearing a mask outside on Memorial Day.
One White House reporter questioned why President Trump retweeted a message on Twitter from Fox News host Brit Hume about Biden’s mask.

“The president’s excited to see that Joe emerged from the basement,” McEnany said. “It is a bit peculiar that in his basement right next to his wife he’s not wearing a mask, but he’s wearing one outdoors when he’s socially distanced.”
Biden made a splash online after he emerged from his home quarantine for the first time in two months to lay a wreath at a military memorial in Delaware.
McEnany said that President Trump “was not shaming anybody” for wearing a mask but noted that the CDC’s guidelines only recommend and do not mandate masks for people outside.
