Fox News reporter Peter Doocy on Monday confronted White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Brandon’s federal travel mask mandate.
Brandon extended the travel mask mandate to May 3, however, a federal judge on Monday struck down the mandate.
79-year-old Brandon and 82-year-old Nancy Pelosi are allowed to mingle maskless.
Reporters in the White House Press Briefing room are not required to mask up.
However, Psaki said people on planes, where the cabin’s air gets filtered through a HEPA system, should still wear masks.
Fox News reporter confronted Psaki about this double standard and she responded with a snarky remark.
“Why is it that we can sit here in the White House briefing room with no masks but people can’t sit in an airplane cabin with no masks?” Doocy asked Psaki.
“Well Peter, I’m not a doctor. You’re not a doctor, that I’m aware of,” Psaki retorted.
DOOCY TIME: “You continue to recommend that people wear masks. Why is it that we can sit here in the White House Briefing Room with no masks, but people can’t sit in an airplane cabin with no masks?”
