No, Joe Biden did not have a maskless birthday party last week.

No, Joe Biden didn’t have a maskless celebration final week.

A tweet wishing President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. pleased birthday final week generated false rumors that Mr. Biden marked his 78th birthday on Friday with a maskless social gathering.

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms of Atlanta tweeted a video of herself celebrating with Mr. Biden as a crowd sang pleased birthday. She later noted that the video was shot in 2019, on Mr. Biden’s 77th birthday, on the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta after that evening’s Democratic debate.

Mr. Biden is sporting the identical pink tie within the video as he did within the debate. A video of the identical occasion taken from a distinct angle exhibits tv screens with the phrases “Debate Viewing Occasion” hanging on the partitions.

Mr. Biden has constantly worn masks through the pandemic, and has been mocked by President Trump for doing so.

Other than the wrong claims that the video was shot this 12 months, some on-line commentators used the video to criticize the restrictions on People’ Thanksgiving plans which have been urged by public well being officers, together with these on the Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention. (Although the video exhibits a big, prepandemic gathering, it has nothing to do with Thanksgiving particularly.)

The claims observe a number of correct reviews about different Democratic politicians flouting social distancing tips. Images have emerged displaying a maskless Gov. Gavin Newsom of California attending a dinner at an costly restaurant in Napa Valley and the state’s senior senator, Dianne Feinstein, wandering the corridors of Congress and not using a masks. In New York, native Democratic leaders mingled lately at a celebration in Brooklyn, hardly ever sporting masks.

Mr. Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris have been in Wilmington, Del., on Friday, assembly with Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the minority chief. They sat a number of ft aside, sporting masks, and Ms. Pelosi gave Mr. Biden a white orchid for his birthday.
