‘Climate Czar’ John Kerry sparked another backlash this week when he was photographed at the airport -once again- flaunting a federal mask mandate when traveling on airplanes.
“Kerry can be seen going through security sans mask at the Boston Logan International Airport on Monday morning in photos published Wednesday by the Washington Free Beacon. The photos were snapped around 11:41 this morning, according to the source who took the pictures,” reports Fox News.
“The White House did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment. The former secretary of state came under fire in March after he was caught going bare-faced while reading a book on an American Airlines flight,” adds Fox.
What rules? He's @JohnKerry

This is Kerry’s second mask-incident, the first when he was photographed onboard a commercial flight without the face covering.
“Feels like there’s some St. Patrick’s day ‘malarkey’ afoot on Twitter,” Kerry wrote. “Let’s be clear: If I dropped my mask to one ear on a flight, it was momentary. I wear my mask because it saves lives and stops the spread. It’s what the science tells us to do.”

CLIMATE CZAR KERRY: ‘I Have to Leave Here By 12:30… I have a Flight to Make’
Presidential Climate Change Envoy John Kerry ditched a House Committee Wednesday because had a “commercial flight to make” and had to leave Washington, DC earlier than expected.
“I was just asking my staff… I thought we originally, I think the hearing was set from ten to noon. And I can push to 12:30, but I am flying commercial and have a flight that I have to make,” Kerry told the Committee. “So I have to leave here by 12:30.”
Kerry’s comments come just days after a financial report showed the climate hypocrite investing in energy and oil companies before his appointment to the Biden Administration.
From Fox News:
John Kerry, President Biden’s special presidential envoy for climate change, held investments in oil companies prior to divesting from the stocks as he took over the position, according to financial forms.
Kerry’s financial disclosure forms, which were obtained by Fox News, show that the former secretary of state was financially invested in numerous oil companies, including Duke Energy, Cimarex, Dominion Energy, Exelon Corporation and Valero Energy.
As Biden’s climate envoy, he will push policies that run counter to his personal investments before taking over the post. At the same time that Kerry held investments in oil companies, he also worked with climate groups The Rise Fund, where he served as a senior adviser, and Climate Finance Partners, where he acted as chairman of the advisory board.
In early March, Kerry warned the oil and gas industry that if it doesn’t embrace clean energy it will be “sitting there with a lot of stranded assets” and “end up on the wrong side of the battle.” He also said the industry should be figuring out “how do we become not an oil-and-gas company, but how do we become an energy company.”
The financial forms show that Kerry’s total investments were valued between $4.2 million and $15 million. He was paid $5 million from Bank of America and collected hundreds of thousands in honorarium from the likes of Deutsche Bank, Zurich Insurance Company and MedStar Washington.
The State Department told Axios, which first reported on Kerry’s financial disclosure, that the climate czar has divested from all assets that could pose conflicts of interest. Kerry has signed an ethics pledge stating he will not participate in decisions involving his former clients and employers.
Kerry has also faced scrutiny over the use of his family’s private jet as he speaks out against climate change. The jet recently made a trip to Idaho as he went on an international climate tour, Fox News reported.

BUSTED! Kerry Family Jet Flies Across the US as ‘Climate Czar’ Tours India to Combat Global Warming
The jet owned by John Kerry’s family reportedly flew to Idaho while the ‘Climate Czar’ was in India and Asia promoting the Biden administration’s efforts to combat global warming.
“The jet belonging to climate czar John Kerry’s family made its way to Idaho, where he and his wife have reportedly vacationed, as he traveled in Asia to promote the Biden administration’s message on the issue,” reports Fox News.
“Flight records show that the jet left Boston late afternoon and landed in Hailey, Idaho, later that evening. It’s unclear what the trip was for but the Idaho Press reported last year that he and his wife, Teresa, have been part-time residents in the nearby Sun Valley for decades,” adds Fox.
