As far as we know, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul hasn’t gotten inappropriately gropey or kissy with anyone. So in that sense, at least, she’s not as bad as her predecessor Andrew Cuomo.
But we fail to see any reason to be impressed by her performance so far. This certainly isn’t doing the trick:
MASK MANDATES FOR CHILDREN: Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-NY) says: "My daughter had a meltdown about having to put sneakers on to go to kindergarten. She got used to wearing sneakers in school. They adapt better than adults do." pic.twitter.com/pOYz3WY95i

OK, but no.

Too bad she’s not wearing a muzzle. Because everything she’s had to say since being sworn in as governor has been hot garbage.
I'm sure this sounded brilliant in her head. https://t.co/QTmSyLwLVX

Sounds pretty stupid to us.
This is such a monstrously bad analogy. https://t.co/m8E5RTDqDO

Imagine being such a sicko while being terrible at comparing things. https://t.co/T5e8Jpjo44

Wearing sneakers does not impact crucial verbal development, not quite sure this is being used as an example. https://t.co/b6bhy4UkEW

It is absolute madness — pure misanthropic fanaticism — that she is doubling down on mandatory masking of children, especially now as nearly every other nation has completely backed off it, and ample evidence exists of the developmental damage masking inflicts on children. https://t.co/UhEPOh7K48

She is so stupid, and forced masking of kids is so brainlessly tyrannical, it’s just insane https://t.co/EG7MsEQFJ0

can't wait to have 5-year olds adapt to having no identity and never seeing facial expressions. Yeah let's "adapt" to that.

Wish Kathy Hochul could adapt to reality.
What a sociopath. https://t.co/PrBKXFswgA

I guess @GovKathyHochul really is just another sociopath politico

She’s sure as hell not acting in good faith.
This type of rhetoric sounds like the case for indefinite masking: https://t.co/QmkxJ1Ahu1

They aren't going to stop this until it is stopped for them. https://t.co/kRcAX12VvA

The only ones who can stop it are parents. Their children’s wellbeing depends on it.
I'm not your child. Go to Hell. https://t.co/Y9es8n8ztr
