Biden SNAPS at reporter after confronted about U-turn asking vaccinated to wear masks.

JOE Biden clashed with Fox News journalist Peter Doocy after the reporter reminded the president that he once said Americans don’t need to wear a mask if they are fully vaccinated.

The heated exchange came just days after boffins at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said vaccinated people will need to wear face coverings in parts of the US due to rising Covid cases.

Journalist Doocy reminded Biden that he said: “If you are fully vaccinated you no longer need to wear a mask.”

The president hit back: “No I didn’t say that. I said if you’re fully vaccinated in an area where you do not have – well let me clarify that.”

Doocy told Biden: “In May, you made it sound like a vaccine was the ticket to losing the masks forever.”

The Democrat, who was flustered by this point, snapped: “That was true at the time.”

The president added: "A new variant came along, they didn’t get vaccinated, it was spread more rapidly and more people were getting sick. That’s the difference.”

Reporters continued to shout questions as Biden, who was not wearing a mask, left the East Room.

The clash came as the president told federal workers they must get vaccinated or face regular testing and mask-wearing.

States could even start offering checks worth up to $100 to encourage reluctant Americans to get jabbed.
