President Joe Biden made headlines when he lost track of his mask after delivering a speech marking his first 100 days in office on Thursday in Duluth, Georgia, according to The Washington Examiner.
The president and first lady Jill Biden both attended the event and it was Jill who eventually directed the president to his rogue mask.
Sens. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff approached the Commander-in-Chief while he was on stage, and Biden could reportedly be seen flipping through binder pages and even shouting about how he couldn’t find the mask.
“I’m looking for my mask. I’m in trouble,” Biden said, leaning into the microphone as Jill Biden took the binder for a look.
Warnock reportedly placed his hand on Biden’s shoulder and seemed to indicate he wanted a hug, to which Biden played it off with a smile nudged the senator on the chest with a fist.
Shortly after this display, a man in a suit ran up the stairs and handed it off to the first lady as Biden searched his pockets.
According to the Examiner’s report, the first lady had to come to the president and point to the mask, after which, the president was able to re-mask.
Biden, who is fully vaccinated, has made a point of setting an example of wearing a mask, and seemed to be making it a point on Thursday.
The president has also been know to extend that example by wearing a mask even when solo as a COVID-19 precaution, something that has been a point of contention with some conservatives.
