PA Governor Caught on Hot Mic Referring to Masks as ‘Political Theater’


One of the most prevalent debates in all of America these days is whether or not the government can tell you to wear a mask to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

It’s the sort of thing that has prompted protests and embarrassing social media videos to go viral, and, much like the pandemic that has spurred the debate, it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon.

Now, one politician in Pennsylvania is in the hot seat after a hot mic moment appears to show her refer to the wearing of masks as “political theater”.

A video circulating online appears to show Pennsylvania Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and Democratic state Rep. Wendy Ullman chuckling over the “political theater” of wearing masks.What did they say?

The two officials were preparing to take part in a news conference in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, Tuesday, when Wolf remarked to Ullman that he would be removing his mask when speaking onstage. At the time, Ullman was standing near the microphone with her mask still on.

“So Wendy, I’m gonna take — I’m gonna take my mask off when I speak,” Wolf is heard saying.

Ullman then walks toward Wolf and off camera, responding, “I will as well, just, I’m waiting so that we can do a little political theater.”

Wolf replies, “OK,” as the two officials share a laugh and Ullman walks back toward the podium. She then adds for clarification: “So that it’s on camera.”

Video of the incident was soon circulating on social media.

As of this writing, there has been no official explanation given for the remarks.
