Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may be 31 years old, but she still talks and acts like a teeenager. Case in point a video she livestreamed from Capitol Hill Tuesday night to comment on the guilty verdict of former police officer Derek Chauvin on charges of killing George Floyd.
Ocasio-Cortez starts the selfie video by trying to put back on a white coronavirus mask with one hand and then letting it fall from her face while holding the streaming smartphone with her other hand. As the mask drops it is revealed to be filthy. AOC looks down at the mask and yanks it out of camera view, saying, “Hello, everybody! My mask is gross. Don’t pay attention to that.”
Excerpt from Instagram video posted to Twitter:
In the opening seconds of this video from February 1, 2021, AOC shows a much cleaner mask than the one she wore Tuesday.
Most people in AOC’s position know to carry spare masks in case of accidents, coughs, sneezes, make-up failures, etc. Otherwise one is breathing in and recycling filth and germs for hours.
The case for mask wearing is questionable enough for many people. AOC’s performance here does not help the pro-mask cause.
