At some point, Dems will get embarrassed by things like this, right? But not today. . .
NY Gov. Kathy Hochul, on November 30, told everyone to “Wear a mask in indoor places”:
We’re not defenseless against COVID and its variants. We have the tools to beat it.
✅ Get vaccinated
✅ Get the booster
✅ Get tested
✅ Stay home when sick
✅ Wear a mask in indoor public places
✅ Wash your hands

But here’s a maskless governor sitting around a tale indoors surrounded by other maskless advisers discussing the Omicron variant on December 1 (note the aides in the background who aren’t talking but have to wear masks):
I met with members of New York's Congressional Delegation to discuss our ongoing efforts against COVID – including preparing for the Omicron variant.
We'll keep working to help New Yorkers recover from the pandemic, create good-paying jobs, & build our economy back better. pic.twitter.com/A7PzGIFfzo

And today’s she’s back to, “wear a mask”:
Get vaccinated, get your booster, get tested, and wear a mask.

No wonder we don’t trust any of them:
The optics in this pic—& this is far from the only example—speak to one of the many reasons there’s so little trust in institutions & public health messaging. The✨important people✨sit around unmasked, but the “disease vector” aides cover their faces. It’s a visual caste system. https://t.co/bp91cJWz9v
