Rules For Thee But Not For Me! President Biden’s U.S. climate envoy, John Kerry has now joined the long list of “liberal hypocrites” Wednesday after he was caught red-handed breaking federal mandates by not wearing his face mask during an American Airlines flight.

The photo, first published by conservative outlet Tennessee Star, showing Kerry with his face mask hanging off his ear as he was reading a book flying first-class in his short flight from Boston to Washington D.C. Kerry’s pretentious behavior appear to put him in violation of both the president and the Center for Disease Control mandate requiring face masks to be kept on all flights.

Biden signed an executive order in his first full day in office mandating federal face coverings during interstate travel. The CDC put Biden’s federal guidance into effect at the beginning of February, stating that individuals “must wear masks that cover both the mouth and nose when awaiting, boarding, traveling on, or disembarking public conveyances. People must also wear masks when entering or on the premises of a transportation hub in the United States.”

However, all airlines had already required passengers over the age of two to wear a facial covering during the duration of flight mandatory last year.

While those traveling are allowed to briefly remove their face masks to eat or drink, the former Secretary of State was doing neither, as the picture shows he had no food or beverages near him.

Kerry responded to the mounting wave of social media blowback, claiming the “malarkey” mask slip was “momentary.”

“Feels like there’s some St. Patrick’s day ‘malarkey’ afoot on Twitter,” Kerry tweeted. “Let’s be clear: If I dropped my mask to one ear on a flight, it was momentary. I wear my mask because it saves lives and stops the spread. It’s what the science tells us to do.”

The passenger, who wished to remain anonymous, snapped the infamous shot disputed Kerry’s claim, telling Fox News that he saw the mask dangling off the climate czar’s ear after boarding ahead of other passengers in a “plane [that] was mostly full.”

After sparking outrage on Twitter, with many noting a recent story of a family kicked out of a flight due to their autistic 4-years-old unable to wear a mask due to his disability, American Airlines also released a statement, saying they are “looking into” Kerry’s incident while emphasizing that everyone boarding American Airlines are “required” to have a face mask to board.

“Masks are required onboard our aircraft,” American Airlines spokeswoman Stacy Day said in a statement. “Our team works diligently to make sure customers are wearing masks properly as they travel with us, and flight attendants pass through the cabin several times during the flight to ensure compliance.

“The crew did not observe Secretary Kerry without a mask, and they were not alerted by other customers to a non-compliance issue. We continue to review the matter and we are reaching out to Secretary Kerry to underscore that all customers are expected to wear masks for the duration of their trip,” the statement adds.

Former President Trump son, Donald Trump Jr. dubbed the climate czar a “liberal hypocrite.”

“SPOTTED: Liberal hypocrite & Biden Admin official @JohnKerry flouting @JoeBiden’s Federal mask mandate,” Trump Jr. tweeted. “NOTE: His mask is off & he isn’t eating or drinking. Will he be fined for breaking the law & banned from flying @AmericanAir like regular citizens would be? #LiberalPrivilege”

Over a dozen high-profile Democratic lawmakers on local, state, and federal level have been caught breaking their own dracognian COVID restrictions they have implemented while American gave up their own lives being in lockdown, with businesses and schools shuttered.

In Septemeber, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) got a special treatment to get her hair done at a San Francisco salon, despite this type of business were closed statewide since March of 2020 and was caught walking around without a face mask. The Speaker own embattled Governor Gavin Newsom who is now facing a recall battle was caught last December dining indoors and maskless at the fancy French Laundry restaurant with medical lobbyists who helped draft his severe lockdown restrictions he imposed on the people he governs.
