CORONAVIRUS/JOE BIDEN: [Julie Bard, audience member: “Why don’t you support a mandate for national mask wearing [for coronavirus]? And why don’t you wear a mask more often?”]
“Well, I do wear them when I have to and when I’m in hospitals and other locations. But I will say this. They said at the Democrat convention they’re going to do a national mandate. They never did it, because they’ve checked out and they didn’t do it.
And a good question is, you ask why Joe Biden — they said we’re going to do a national mandate on masks…
I mean, he never did it. Now there is by the way, a lot of people don’t want to wear masks. There are a lot of people think that masks are not good.”
