Another day, one other act of democratic hypocrisy. This time, it comes from Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.). Tlaib was caught on video throughout a Detroit neighborhood occasion on Monday, telling an attendee that she was solely carrying the masks as a result of she was being filmed by a republican tracker.
The maskless attendee approached Tlaib and thought that she would scold him for being the one maskless individual close by. Tlaib, nevertheless, assured him it was solely getting used as a gimmick.
“Oh, no, oh, not you!” Tlaib mentioned. “No, no, no—I’m just wearing it because I’ve got a Republican tracker here.”
Optics, optics, optics. It’s all of the democratic leaders care about in relation to masking. Dr. Anthony Fauci continues to skate across the nation pleading with Americans to put on our masks however our elected leaders gained’t even comply with by instance.
Tlaib was seen weeks in the past at a marriage in Dearborn, Michigan dancing maskless at a crowded, indoor occasion. Her fellow congresswoman, the unbearable Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., NY), made certain she was masked for a photograph she took with liberal activists in August, however it got here proper again down when she was executed. It’s laughable hypocrisy that may’t be defined.
And we might preserve going, as we noticed the “special rules” that the Emmy Awards had been granted by town of Los Angeles, as lots of of maskless celebrities gathered to brag about how wealthy they’re. Oh wait, that was the Met Gala, the place AOC and others had been maskless whereas waiters and servants had been compelled to adjust to New York’s masks mandate.
It’s a full-on sham that has been happening for over a yr and a half. It’s clear not even democratic leaders need to put on the masks anymore, however then they need to come out and say it. But no, congress members corresponding to Tlaib would fairly slam republicans corresponding to Sen. Rand Paul (R., KY) for not abiding by the CDC’s masking pointers.
