As we told you earlier, multiple blue-checks called out Sen. Ted Cruz for not wearing a mask during Bob Dole’s funeral today. For example:
That Ted Cruz feels the need to politicize the pandemic at a funeral is absolutely consistent with the disgusting man he has proven to be.
We need leaders who make challenging decisions in SUPPORT of the public, not in support of personal ambitions. https://t.co/btEHF7fU6y

But video from *before* the funeral started shows Amy Klobuchar wearing her mask incorrectly and the two politicians over Cruz’s left have their masks in chin-diaper mode:

Of course, once the funeral started and they assumed they’d be on TV, the masks came up:

If Klobuchar was so worried, why did she, you know, talk with the unmasked Texas Republican and not change seats?
