The White House tried to downplay photos of President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden maskless in an upscale Washington, D.C., restaurant, contravening the capital’s indoor mandate.
The Bidens had their masks in hand as they left Italian seafood restaurant Fiola Mare last Saturday, according to Jen Psaki.
“There are moments when we all don’t put masks back on as quickly as we should,” she told reporters Monday. “But I don’t think we should lose the forest through the trees here.” . . .
The first couple was photographed without masks indoors and outdoors as they left the restaurant, which boasts a $40 tortelloni bolognese dish on the menu.(Read more from “Do as I Say, Not as I Do: Biden Enjoys Maskless Date Night” HERE)
