John Kerry responds to backlash after being photographed on commercial flight without mask on

John Kerry has responded to backlash after being photographed without a mask on while flying on American Airlines.

One Twitter user wrote “@AmericanAir can you clarify your policy please?”

American Airlines responded “Masks are required on board our aircraft, and we are looking into this.”

Don Jr. tweeted:

SPOTTED: Liberal hypocrite & Biden Admin official @JohnKerry
flouting @JoeBiden ‘s Federal mask mandate.

NOTE: His mask is off & he isn’t eating or drinking. Will he be fined for breaking the law & banned from flying @AmericanAir
like regular citizens would be?

#LiberalPrivilege

Kerry has now responded to the controversy, tweeting “Feels like there’s some St. Patrick’s day “malarkey” afoot on Twitter. Let’s be clear: If I dropped my mask to one ear on a flight, it was momentary. I wear my mask because it saves lives and stops the spread. It’s what the science tells us to do.”
