A Pennsylvania state representative was caught on a hot microphone
joking about how she would keep her mask on during a press conference
as a bit of "political theater."
Rep. Wendy Ullman and Gov. Tom Wolf, both Democrats, held a press
conference on Tuesday to discuss the future of the Affordable Care Act
as the Supreme Court is poised to take up a legal challenge to the
healthcare law later this fall. Before the event began, a livestream
caught Ullman and Wolf discussing their plans for wearing masks.
"So Wendy, I'm going to take, I'm going to take my mask off when I
speak," Wolf said.
"I will as well. I'm waiting so that we can do a little political
theater," Ullman said as the two laughed. "So that it's on camera."
When the event got underway, Ullman removed her mask and loaded up on
hand sanitizer before she began speaking.
The hot mic moment was caught by ReOpen Bucks County, a group that has
been demanding that Wolf remove his coronavirus restrictions to allow businesses to return to normal operations. The group shared the video
on Twitter and thanked Ullman and Wolf for their "confirmation" that
masks were being used as "political theater."
The Washington Examiner reached out to Ullman and Wolf's offices for
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended the use
of face coverings to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Wolf signed
an executive order requiring that everyone wear a face covering when
they are outside their homes in July.
Democrats and the liberal media hate President Trump more than they
love this country.
