VIDEO: Prominent Democrats Only Put on Masks When Media Arrive at 9/11 Ceremonies

A video is circulating the internet showing a group of prominent Democrats doing what they do best: being absolutely, unambiguously, hypocritical. Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Governor Kathy Hochul were closely chatting in a large group without masks…until the media showed up for picture time.

Twitter user @AnthonyDeWitt7 posted the video with the caption, “!!BREAKING NEWS!! @AOC @SpeakerPelosi @JerryNadler @KathyHochul and dozens of other democrats seen in New York City around hundreds WITHOUT MASKS ON before news media and cameras showed up. Their hypocrisy is disgusting and must be exposed!! Rules for thee but not for me!!”

When cameras and reporters show up, however, virtually the entire group swiftly puts their masks on to pose for the photo-op. The scenario took place over the weekend as various ceremonies and memorials dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks took place around New York City.

Many family members and survivors of the 9/11 attacks publicly expressed they did not want President Biden to visit ground zero or New York City due to the failed withdrawal from Afghanistan, “ending” a 20-year-war that began after the United States was attacked in 2001.

Biden, along with former Presidents and first ladies, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama, joined House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) at an annual 9/11 Commemoration Ceremony at the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum on Saturday, September 11, 2021. In the photo, the prominent Democrats wore masks while standing for the national anthem.

Former President Donald Trump also visited New York Police Department and New York Fire Department precincts on the 9/11 anniversary. Trump was greeted with cheers and applause, as well as addressed the botched Biden troop withdrawal from Afghanistan. “It was gross incompetence and I hate to talk about it on this day” said Trump.

Biden Says He Doesn’t Think COVID Is ‘Here To Stay’

On Friday, President Biden said he doesn’t think that COVID-19 is here to stay, but added that he does think the virus will remain around the world.

“No, I don’t think COVID is here to stay, but having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay,” Biden told reporters at the White House.
“COVID as we’re dealing with it now is not here to stay, the normal doesn’t have to be. We have so many more tools we developed and we continue to develop that can contain COVID and other strains of COVID,” he added.

Biden’s comments come shortly after six of his former health advisers, who helped him with the COVID-19 pandemic during his presidential transition, published three opinion articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association urging Biden to change his strategy in responding to COVID-19 to one accepting that the virus was here to stay and learning how to live with it.

“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay. In one article, Dr. Emanuel and two co-authors — Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease expert at New York University — pointedly note that in July, Mr. Biden proclaimed that ‘we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus,’ which in retrospect was clearly not the case,” The New York Times reported.

Biden’s comments suggest he has not yet listened to the advice of these experts, even as the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases.

Former COVID Advisory Board tells Biden corona now ‘one of several circulating respiratory virus’ like flu

Doctors who once advised President Biden on how to handle the coronavirus are now telling him to change his strategy via a series of published articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The six doctors, Drs. Ezekiel Emanuel, Michael Osterholm, Celine Gounder, David Michaels, Rick Bright and Luciana Borio were members of the advisory board that worked with Biden during his transition period before taking office.

“As the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 demonstrates, COVID-19 is here to stay” and therefore Biden’s national strategy must be “updated.”

“The goal for the ‘new normal’ with COVID-19 does not include eradication or elimination, eg, the ‘zero COVID’ strategy. Neither COVID-19 vaccination nor infection appears to confer lifelong immunity,” they wrote.

“Current vaccines do not offer sterilizing immunity against SARS-CoV-2 infection. Infectious diseases cannot be eradicated when there is limited long-term immunity following infection or vaccination or nonhuman reservoirs of infection.”

The “new normal,” they explained, should be “recognizing that SARS-CoV-2 is but one of several circulating respiratory viruses that include influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and more.”

The doctors also pointed out there are many treatments with varying levels of effectiveness such as remdesevir and dexamethasone, monoclonal antibody treatment, and oral treatments like Molnupiravir and Paxlovid.

“Finally,” Fox News reports, they said it is imperative “to rebuild trust in public health institutions and a belief in collective action in service of public health.”
