Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Mandy Cohen recently shared an eyebrow-raising post that included four photos of her with U.S. senators. While she was wearing a mask in photos with Democratic Sens. Tim Kaine of Virginia, Jon Ossoff of Georgia, and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, Cohen was maskless in a photo with Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah.
“Busy day meeting with Senators – appreciate the support and partnership!” Cohen’s post read, seemingly indicating that all of the photos had been taken on the same day.
People on social media took notice of Cohen’s inconsistent masking.
“Why the mask, but then also why no mask with Romney?” Chuck Ross of the Washington Free Beacon tweeted.
“Mandy Cohen wears masks when meeting with Democrats but not @SenatorRomney,” Matthew Foldi of The Specator World wrote. “Why?”
“Masked meeting the Dems // unmasked meeting Romney,” Josh Kraushaar of Jewish Insider noted.
“What happened to your useless mask in the first photo dear?” someone else tweeted.
Cohen began serving as CDC director earlier this year.
Back in 2020, she shared a photo of herself sporting a face mask emblazoned with a photo of Dr. Anthony Fauci.
“Did you know it’s #WorldMaskWeek?” Cohen wrote on that August 2020 post. “Face coverings are one of our strongest tools to slow the spread of #COVID19 in our communities… and like my Dr. Fauci mask, they can be fun too! Join me in masking up this week & beyond – every time you leave the house.”
