Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Joe Biden Criticizes Republicans Who Didn't Wear Masks During Lockdown”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President-elect Joe Biden got his second dose of the coronavirus vaccine on Monday and said he would be announcing his distribution plan on Thursday.

As he talked about the need for continued mitigation, Biden made a point of calling out the Republican lawmakers who didn’t wear masks during the violent storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters.

A video obtained by Punchbowl News showed one Democratic lawmaker handing out masks and some Republicans refusing. On Sunday, the Capitol physician warned that lawmakers might have been exposed to covid during the protective isolation.

In his remarks to reporters, Biden said he was “appalled” to see the video of Republicans refusing the masks.

“I think it’s irresponsible,” he said. “It’s not a political issue; it’s about public safety. And it’s gonna get worse before it gets better.”
