CNN anchor Jake Tapper called out former Vice President Joe Biden for coughing into his hand — instead of the more “modern” way of using the crook of your elbow.

Biden was appearing on “The Lead” March 24, 2020 to discuss his campaign and the coronavirus outbreak when he needed to cough.

“You know, you’re supposed to cough into your elbow,” Tapper said after the cough. “I learned that actually covering your White House.”

Biden was a fairly good sport about getting scolded: “No, actually that’s true, but fortunately I’m alone in my home,” he said. “But that’s OK. I agree, you’re right.”

“It’s kind of old school to do it with your hand. Do it into your elbow, you’re supposed to do it,” said Tapper before continuing with the interview.

Biden said during the interview that he has no symptoms of COVID-19.
