“We have President Biden yesterday, him and his family, they’re not wearing masks after mandating and requiring people to wear masks on federal property. He and his family were not wearing masks out,” McCain said on Friday.
She added, “I think the rules for thee, but not for me that have been going on for a long time in the Trump administration and now you’re seeing it with President Biden. I was really disappointed he wasn’t wearing a mask.”

McCain explained she believes the “great horror” of being an American right now is the decline of trust in the nation’s institutions.
She criticized Dr. Anthony Fauci for his misinformation about masks at the beginning of the pandemic.
“I remember being told and, I too, would like to be treated like an adult…that masks don’t work and to throw them away,” McCain said.
She went on, “Just say to me, ‘First responders need them more than average Americans. Please donate them for the good of your heart.’ I would’ve done the same thing, but I was lied to.”
McCain turned her attention to Amazon’s willingness to assist Biden with vaccine distribution, but not doing the same thing under Trump.
“I would also like to say, Amazon, I don’t really understand why you’re now offering the Biden administration help with COVID vaccines after months of complete silence from Trump, because that seems political as well,” she said.
McCain explained, “So why does Jeff Bezos now all of a sudden want to help with vaccine distribution, but he didn’t during the Trump administration? There is a lot of blame to go around everywhere. Yes, President Trump was integral in spreading false information, but I’m not about to give Dr. Fauci a profile in courage award this morning.”
