Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee offered a sarcastic explanation for the mask that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was seen wearing earlier in the week.
On Memorial Day, Biden emerged from his basement with his wife, Jill, to make his public appearance in over two months, as he laid a wreath at a veterans park near his Delaware residence. Both were wearing black masks, which set off a national frenzy.
Leftist media embraced the moment to applaud Biden for showing “leadership” by wearing a mask.
Conservatives, on the other hand, seized the opportunity to poke fun at the mask, suggesting it’s real purpose was to muffle the gaffe-prone candidate among other explanations.
“Lot of attention abt Uncle Joe wearing a mask outdoors separated from everyone,” Huckabee tweeted. “Folks, that is NOT a mask! It’s a gag, placed on him by staff to keep him from blurting out another cray-cray comment requiring 3 days of walk-back.” See Below

Over the weekend, Huckabee blasted Biden’s “basement campaign” and suggested it’s the choice strategy for the former Vice President’s team to control his neverending gaffe troubles. Video Below
“He’s better off just sending some written messages and or learning to have someone do his voice and let him lip sync because when he goes just off the script, it’s disastrous,” Huckabee said.
