WASHINGTON, Nov 29 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden urged Americans to wear masks indoors and in public places, as the administration braces for the new COVID-19 variant Omicron to appear in the country.

"Sooner or later we are going to see cases of this new variant here in the United States," Biden said. "Please wear your mask when you’re indoors, in public settings around other people."

Saw a photo of our great and powerful leader from just this week. He was shopping in PA, in a store where everyone else was masked up like the Lone Ranger. (By royal decree, no doubt). There goes great and powerful, wandering around with his mask down over his chin. The virus knows who he is, and wouldn’t dare attack him. Apparently.🙄 Cause that’s how ‘science’ works.
