The day before President Joe Biden’s first State of the Union Address, the White House relaxed a requirement for people who are vaccinated against COVID-19 to wear face masks on the premises.

Just days before, the House also relaxed its requirements. So, Democrats who have been scolding Americans about masks for months, or even years, showed up mask-free to the House on Tuesday. And social media noticed.

“Our politicians at the State of the union aren’t wearing masks and I’m still trying to find a preschool in the DMV area that won’t require a 2 year olds to be masked,” Meghan McCain wrote.

 “All that hysteria over masks — the ‘death cults,’ etc — just went poof,” commented David Harsanyi. “It’s a State of the Union miracle!”

“Until yesterday everyone had to wear masks in Congress now Joe Biden is maskless walking down the aisle and shaking hands with everyone,” wrote Clay Travis. “This is all such bulls***.”

Liz Harrington wrote, “The fact they can all decide to take their masks off today shows what a farce it was.”

“Watching all of these elected officials who made such a visible point of wearing masks talking 1-inch from each other’s face and whispering in each other’s ears is maddening, Justin Hart reacted.

“The Democrats have taken off their masks: They’re all frauds. #SOTU,” wrote Kyle Becker.

“Democrats across the country fought to keep masks on kids in school for two years… but the day Joe Biden needs to give a State of the Union with his poll numbers plummeting, the masks come off,” Mark Meadows posted hours before the address. “It was never about science.”

“The #SOTU is political theater and makes crystal clear that COVID tyranny was always political… now with magic lifting of masks & other restrictions the same day as the SOTU,” said Republican Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX). “None of it helping Americans being targeted by the President’s mandates…”

“Pelosi just dropped the mask mandate in Congress just before the State of the Union address,” Caleb Hull criticized. “Literally yesterday you’d see staffers have mental breakdowns on the Hill over people not wearing masks. None of this was ever based on science.”

“Congress no longer has to wear masks… but people on commercial flights and public transportation do… because, as you know, unsophisticated commoners are where disease comes from,” Tim Young wrote.
