Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas couldn’t help but poke fun at an online video stunt where New York Mayor Bill de Blasio portrayed himself as heroic and virtuous for wearing a mask this week.
In New York, where de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo are the epitome of failed governance, the second-term, worst mayor in the modern history of the country’s largest city posted a video that seemed like a knock against President Donald Trump.
Empire State Democrats apparently hope to turn the focus on their disastrous coronavirus and law enforcement policies around to the president.
So, in a 21-second video, de Blasio was seen standing on a balcony outdoors, dramatically displaying a surgical mask and then putting it on.
This all occurred as inspirational orchestral music played in the background.
“In New York City we wear our masks, proudly,” the tweet accompanying the video said.
