Biden coughs in his hand before shaking hands with the attendees
CNN reported, “President Joe Biden went to New Jersey on Monday to advance his economic agenda a great week of negotiations with Democrats to pass on portions of its comprehensive, multi-trillion-dollar agenda. “
“The visit provided Biden with an opportunity to unveil both his plans – a bipartisan infrastructure package and a social safety net package – before his trip to Europe for the Group of 20 conference and the United Nations Climate Change Conference,” the newspaper noted.
At the end of his speech, Biden can clearly be seen coughing in his hand and then walking down the stage stairs to greet the participants with a handshake and some close conversations.
Whether it was a cough or just to clear his throat, it is clearly contradictory current CDC leadership. There is no evidence of hand sanitizer being used or any other form of hand washing in the video.

Polls show that significant numbers of Americans do not support vaccine mandates
Despite Biden’s behavior at the event, his administration continues to insist on mandatory vaccines and promotes the wearing of masks even for those who have been vaccinated.
But polls show that many Americans oppose mandates and other COVID-19 actions currently favored by this White House.
The Associated Press reported in September, “A survey among Americans of President Joe Biden’s plan to require most workers to be vaccinated either regularly or regularly for COVID-19 finds a deep and well-known divide: Democrats are overwhelming for it, while the most Republicans are against it. “
“With the highly contagious delta variant causing deaths to around 2,000 per day, the poll released on Thursday by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research showed that 51% generally say they approve of the Biden requirement, 34% disapprove and 14% have no opinion, ”the AP noted.
Twitter responds to video of Biden coughing and then shaking hands in NJ
One popular conservative expert asks if this is how Biden “stopped the spread.”

Can you imagine the outrage if 45 did that ??https://t.co/2fwCgo6YDZ

While a USA Today journalist questions whether Biden may be violating his own administration’s public health safety standards, it should be newsworthy.
