In the photo circulating on social media, the former secretary of state is seen sitting in a window seat of a commercial flight perusing a document while his mask hangs off his ear.
According to Tennessee Star's Neil McCabe, Kerry who was flying in first class on American Airlines from Boston to Washington was not in the middle of eating or drinking, but simply chose not to wear his mask.
@TheTNStar Exclusive: Biden's @ClimateEnvoy John Kerry, took off his mask as he settled into a book in his first-class seat just before takeoff today on an @AmericanAir flight Boston to DC. He was not eating, nor drinking. He was simply flaunting Biden's mandatory mask policy. pic.twitter.com/t1wDq9OtxD— ReporterMcCabe (@NeilWMcCabe2) March 17, 2021
Others also noted Kerry appears to be flouting a "no mask, no fly" policy enacted by Joe Biden.
SPOTTED: Liberal hypocrite & Biden Admin official @JohnKerry flouting @JoeBiden's Federal mask mandate.— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) March 17, 2021
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
