While President Donald Trump’s state of health after testing positive for the coronavirus continues to make headlines in the media, Democratic candidate for the presidential race Joe Biden appears not to be trusted with managing the virus within himself let alone being trusted to manage it for the American people.
Recently Twitter timeline was flooded with short videos of Biden breaching one of the elementary rules of managing the coronavirus thus delighted the supporters of President Trump who’s currently bracing up for another FOUR years in office after Nov. 3.
You can’t make this up.

You realize the Fake News would call for public execution if @realDonaldTrump took his mask to cough. With or without C19.

Biden dutifully lowers his mask and coughs into his hand.
And that’s how it’s done folks!

This isn’t the first time Biden was slammed for his lack of sanitation. During an interview in March as the coronavirus outbreak was still growing, the former VP similarly coughed into his hand but was immediately called out by CNN anchor Jake Tapper.
“You know, you’re supposed to cough into your elbow,” Tapper told the Democratic nominee. “I learned that, actually, covering your White House.”
“Actually, that’s true,” Biden conceded. “But fortunately, I’m alone in my home, but that’s OK. I agree you’re right.”

The CNN presenter doubled down on the proper etiquette lesson.
“It’s kinda just old school to do it with your hand,” Tapper added while demonstrating with his elbow again. “Do it into your elbow. You’re supposed to do it.”
“Thank you,” Biden said.
