The media continuously covers for Democrats and they especially cover for the ones that they really like, like New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The 30-year-old representative was caught in Queens removing her mask to blow bubbles at a little girl who she was playing with, The Independent reported.
[email protected]: @AOC is the Karen of wearing masks. Meanwhile, this weekend she’s pulling her mask down in New York to blow bubbles in a child’s face, the War Room 2020 podcast said. And there were many more that took swipes at her.
“Doesn’t blowing bubbles spread the virus further. Now her droplets are in each bubble she blew,” one user said.

“Watch out! Those bubbles are dangerous! If one of them hits you and pops…you lose I.Q. points instantly!” another said.

The bubbles incident happened when she was campaigning across the Bronx and Queens as she spoke to The Indypendent.
“I think my goal would be to try to make sure that we push and influence Democratic policy to be as progressive as possible, particularly on issues like climate change, wages and healthcare,” she said.
She said she has learned some things in her first two years as a Congresswoman, including how to use protesters for political gain.
“I’ve always been a believer in inside-outside change — the outside coming from the streets and from protesting and from community organizing and activism. I knew a lot about the outside before. My first term has really been about learning to navigate the inside. I’m getting an understanding of structures, the way power is organized and how the inside and the outside interact. It has been a huge learning point for my first term,” she said.
She also talked about how she and “The Squad” want to reshape Congress.
“Ilhan Omar is the first hijabi refugee in Congress. Rashida Tlaib is the first Palestinian woman in Congress. Ayana Pressley is the first woman to represent the Massachusetts delegation in United States history. We all got there by the courage of our convictions, by not accepting corporate PAC money, by fighting for progressive policies. All of that is a huge part of trying to push the envelope. But we don’t go out to push just to push. We go out because we think it’s the right thing to do,” she said.
But that still does not excuse her blowing bubbles at a kid during a pandemic.
