[See NewsBusters for more.] On CNN's Friday Inside Politics, host John King was joined by Dana Bash and Jeff Zeleny to discuss the CDC's new guidelines that say that vaccinated people do not need to wear masks in most circumstances. In addition to being worried about the guidelines, the trio took the opportunity to condemn former President Trump.

King, apparently forgetting that Dr. Fauci was on Trump's COVID response team, wondered, "So you're the president of the United States and you have watched this during the Trump age where, yes, you had a different president, a different team. I would say inattention or ignorance to the threat of the pandemic. But you still have to be worried even as you tell Americans and even as he and the vice president walked in the White House grounds yesterday without masks, you have to be worried at this delicate moment. Don't you?"
