(FreedomBeacon.com)- White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is known for coming up with weird excuses and ignoring questions, but this one really takes the biscuit.
This week, Psaki chose to spread misinformation at the podium, claiming that a video showing President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden not wearing masks while in a D.C. restaurant didn’t show the president breaking rules. He just, apparently, didn’t put his mask on quickly enough!
The video very clearly showed the president leaving the expensive restaurant, walking through the indoor dining room, without wearing a mask. Jill Biden also did not wear a mask.
Fox News journalists Peter Doocy asked Psaki about the footage, explaining how there is a mask requirement inside of D.C. restaurants that requires people to wear them while walking through the dining room.
“Yet, President Biden and the first lady were not wearing masks while walking around a D.C. restaurant on Saturday. Why?” he asked.
DOOCY: "There is mask requirement inside D.C. restaurants, yet president Biden and the first lady were not wearing masks while walking around a D.C. restaurant on Saturday. Why?"

Psaki responded, “Of course there are moments when we all don’t put masks back on as quickly as we should.”
That’s not what the footage showed. The footage, as you can see below, showed the president and his wife walking without wearing masks, and not fumbling to grab the masks or put them on their face.

They were not trying to put their masks on at all, nor is there any evidence that the masks were placed on their faces before they even left the building.
What happened to the “most transparent administration in history”?
