A very strange thing was caught on film over the weekend. A U.S. Congresswoman who has been one of the biggest proponents of masks was filmed at a sporting event in a park in D.C. not wearing a mask in close proximity to others. Even more strange, she then proceeded to dig through a trashcan which isn’t just odd, but also doesn’t really seem very sanitary during a ‘deadly pandemic’.
The incident appears to have taken place just north of D.C.’s recently gentrified Navy Yard district, at Garfield Park. The park hosts volleyball matches on Sundays, which resumed in late March. The full video – obtained from a social media site – is below.
During the same month, AOC tweeted her disdain for Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s decision to end state-wide mask mandates. She said: “Repealing the mask mandate now endangers so many people, especially essential workers & the vulnerable,” before adding: “This endangers the entire country and beyond. We are in a pandemic… It’s dangerous.”
In December, the New York Congresswoman lashed out across the aisle: “Gee, maybe if the GOP hadn’t spent so much time undermining public faith in science, masks,& COVID itself, I wouldn’t have to weigh the potential misinfo consequences of what wld happen if leaders urged ppl to take a new vaccine that we weren’t taking ourselves!”
She added, in the same month: “Our job is to make sure the vaccine isn’t politicized the way masks were politicized. If you actually listened to your constituents, you’d hear a LOT about viral claims about repro health. Ppl have [question]s Leaders shld show we won’t ask others to do something we wouldn’t do ourselves.”
Now AOC is doing precisely the opposite of what she has asked others to do.
In a video clip posted to a social media site, AOC appears to be pictured maskless in public, and does not appear to be eating or drinking.
In a follow-up clip, she can be seen rifling through a bag placed on a trash can in the park.
