CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins caught removing face mask when she thought camera was off

Masks for thee but not for me.

CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins may have worn her mask during the White House press briefing Friday, but she promptly removed the facial covering when the cameras were off — or so she thought.

Video percolating on Twitter shows shortly after White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany finished her briefing, Collins removed her face mask which she had worn during the televised event.

Other reporters in the video can be seen also wearing face masks which they did not remove. They also maintained social distance among one another in the briefing room.

Collins came in for jeers from many online, including Darla Shine, wife of former White House Communications Director Bill Shine.

“CNN’s Kaitlan Collins removes her mask as soon as the cameras shut off. #FakeNews #CoronavirusLiar,” she posted.

Collins frequently appears on air for the cable news channel and it’s possible she removed her mask in preparation for a live television appearance.

Reps for Collins at CNN did not immediately respond to request for comment.
