VIDEO: Maskless Ocasio-Cortez Puts Mask On For Photo-Op, Then Takes It Off Right After
A recent video shows Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez maskless with a group of people at the U.S. Capitol putting a mask on for a photo-op, then taking it off as soon as it’s done.
The group gathered in support of an extension of the eviction moratorium.
Before the photo, someone who might have been part of the organization told them:
“Let’s take a quick photo so we can keep the pressure up.”
And she was not the only far-left politician at the event who put their mask on just for the photo and took it off right after.
Senator Ed Markey did the exact same thing, as can be seen in a video shared by Breitbart.
“Markey, who had not been wearing a mask for around 45 minutes before the photograph, decided to put a face covering on for the picture. Just seconds after the picture was taken, he was seen pulling it down below his chin,” the Daily Mail reported, adding “AOC and other members of the Squad were later seen celebrating on the steps of the Capitol on Tuesday after the Center for Disease Control and Prevention extended the eviction moratorium for 60 days.”

And this is not the first time Ocasio-Cortez messed up during a photo op.
Back in 2019 she was criticized for photos of herself seemingly taken at a Tornillo, Texas, detention center, where she posed with a distressed look on her face staring at and appearing to cry in front of a large fence. However, the images did not reveal what she was looking at that made her so upset.
She made a tweet with the photo, captioned:
‘I’ll never forget this, because it was the moment I saw with my own eyes that the America I love was becoming a nation that steals refugee children from their parents, & caged them. More kids died after this. To date, no one has been held accountable. We need to save these kids.”

And critics subsequently blasted her for it:
“I love AOC but these images feel so staged, it undermines her credibility on these issues. This crisis is not about ‘striking’ photos of a Congresswoman, it is about DYING CHILDREN.” “And at such a relief she was able to be followed by a photographer on this day. Instead of you know, just going like a regular person.” “Regurgitated [public relations] stunt.”
