Somebody in the White House has to be reading the room, right? There should be, at the very least, some sort of reputation defender on the staff in the West Wing, looking to find ways to make Joe Biden more endearing to the American people? Especially with the way that the polling has been going as of late.
But no, it certainly doesn’t seem so, particularly as the COVID pandemic begins to turn for the worse and the President is out walking his new puppy on a beach in Delaware.
President Joe Biden wore a mask on a trip to the beach with his dog on Tuesday, as the omicron variant of the coronavirus continues to spread.Advertisement - story continues below
The president kept his mask on as he and First Lady Jill Biden walked on the foreshore and tossed a ball around with his new puppy Commander.

Last week, the president urged all Americans to wear a mask during the Christmas season.
“[E]ven if you’re fully vaccinated, you should wear a mask when indoors in public settings,” he said. “Wearing a mask provides extra protection for you and those around you.”
The lengthy trip away from Washington DC comes just days after Biden, in a call with state governors, suggested that there is no “federal solution” for the pandemic, essentially laying the responsibility for keeping the nation safe at their feet.
With the alternative media consistently making a strong case for Biden’s reluctance to lead, you would think that the White House’s PR staff would be working overtime in order to rebuke this sentiment.
I guess not.
