As Twitchy reported, a number of Democratic governors announced plans to end mask mandates in schools this week. On Wednesday, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul lifted a statewide mask mandate that was facing a legal challenge, but she did keep mask requirements in place for child care centers, and as far as schools go, she said she’d make an assessment in March when many children returned from break.
Hochul didn’t seem to hesitate to go maskless, although the NBC reporter she’s talking to in this picture decided to play it safe and keep his mask on.
Governor Hochul is “not ready” for toddlers to unmask for early intervention services.
But she was ready to shed her own mask last night to party with Broadway stars.
We’re way past indifference.
This is downright cruelty. pic.twitter.com/JBZ6SrzoND

Maybe she was just holding her breath?

Look how happy @KathyHochul is without a mask. So happy for her.

It’s worse than hypocrisy. If she really thought they worked she’d wear one regardless of who’s watching her.

Cue the “but she’s vaccinated,” which still means crap because she has the potential to catch, spread and be affected by the virus much more than healthy toddlers

Got to keep those 2-year-olds in masks.
No exaggeration — healthy children have around a 99.99995% Covid survival rate. They are naturally safer than any ‘vaccinated’ adult.

There will always be suffering tots and a generation will have speech issues but how many times will she have this opportunity for luminescence?

Recall Hochul. She’s high on her own power. She needs to go. She’s a power hungry bully. NY can and needs to do better.

Anyone that would use children as political pawns is the lowest of the low.

And the reporters have masks? Probably the wait staff too

Don’t forget to show the vaccinated & masked NYC HS marching band students she passed first to get to the red carpet. pic.twitter.com/HBsRjZSYdR

The members of the marching band are wearing masks?
What a fraud

Honest question: Why was it suddenly necessary to mask toddlers AFTER the worst of the pandemic passed when Hochul came into power? The children were fine before then to go maskless.
