(JustPatriots.com)- So apparently, it turns out that politicians don’t need to abide by the same rules of wearing masks while on public transport. At least, that’s what Climate Czar John Kerry appears to think.
Kerry, the former Secretary of State now serving the Biden administration by flying all over the world and giving speeches about the climate, was pictured flouting rules that require air passengers to wear masks when traveling.
The photo was first published by The Tennessee Star, showing Kerry reading and allowing his mask to dangle freely from one ear. Kerry was flying first class on a flight from Boston to Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.
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 pic.twitter.com/3j7j57jXVI

Last month, American Airlines – who operated Kerry’s flight – releases a statement insisting that passengers wear masks.
“Consistent with U.S. government directives, individuals who refuse to wear a mask may be denied boarding, removed from the aircraft or subject to penalties under federal law, in addition to being barred from future travel with American,” the airline said.
Current rules only allow passengers to remove their masks when eating or drinking, but as the photo shows, Kerry was neither eating nor drinking. There also would have been no meals served as part of the journey as the flight is only 90 minutes long.
Meanwhile, more than 2,500 passengers have been banned from U.S. airlines so far for refusing to comply with the mask rules. Delta Airlines alone banned 880 passengers.
In December last year, a family was also kicked off a United Airlines flight after their two-year-old daughter refused to keep her face mask on during the flight.
“We just got kicked off the flight because our 2-year-old would not put on a mask, and we tried,” passenger Eliz Orban said in a video posted to Instagram on Friday.
If only they were members of the Biden administration!
