Jill Biden Shames Political Criticizers at Social WH Reception

(RightWing.org) – The First Lady doesn’t have a formal role in our government, but there are some expectations that come with her position. One of them is that she’ll host non-political social events to help keep the government approachable and in touch with the people. Unfortunately, Jill Biden doesn’t seem to understand how that works.

On March 21, Erika Donalds, the wife of Representative Byron Donalds (R-FL), revealed in a tweet that Jill Biden had invited her to a White House reception for congressional spouses. However, the invitation came with a daunting list of COVID-related restrictions – which only apply to the unvaccinated.

Donalds shared part of the invitation, which included the innocuously-named “mask guidance.” This guidance, which isn’t voluntary, says that anyone who’s fully vaccinated doesn’t need to wear a mask. So far, so good. But what if, like Erika Donalds, you’re not vaccinated? Well, then you have to wear a mask at all times – and you’re not even allowed to take it off to eat or drink. The unvaccinated are also required to stay at least six feet away from anyone else.

These restrictions go far beyond the CDC’s current recommendations, which are to wear a mask “when there is a lot of COVID in your community.” In fact, they’re among the strictest ever seen; even at the height of the pandemic, airplane passengers were allowed to take their masks off to eat or drink. They also make no sense. As journalists quickly pointed out, vaccinated people can still catch and pass on the coronavirus. The only explanation is that the Bidens are imposing these draconian rules to make a political point – and if congressional spouses get caught in the crossfire, that’s just tough.
