A video is going viral this week that exposes the hypocrisy of the left, as it appears to show Pennsylvania Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and Democratic state Rep. Wendy Ullman laughing about the “political theater” of masks.
The video was captured as Wolf and Ullman were preparing to take part in a press conference in Doylestown, Pennsylvania on Tuesday. As Ullman stood near the microphone with her mask on, Wolf told her that he would be removing his mask when speaking onstage.
“So Wendy, I’m gonna take — I’m gonna take my mask off when I speak,” Wolf can be heard saying.
Ullman proceeds to walk off camera towards Wolf, before responding, “I will as well, just, I’m waiting so that we can do a little political theater.”
“OK,” Wolf replies as they both laugh. As Ullman walks back to the podium, she adds, “So that it’s on camera.”

The people of Pennsylvania will likely not take kindly to their leaders laughing about this, as they have been living under some of the strictest COVID-19 restrictions in the country. Wolf signed an executive order on July 2 making masks mandatory, and he also implemented a policy that limited indoor gatherings to 25 people and outdoor gatherings to 250 people.
Twitter users have let their feelings abut the clip be known in a big way.
“I enjoyed your political theater, meanwhile families and businesses suffer,” one Twitter user commented, with another adding, “Pelosi, Feinstein, now this. Rules for thee, but not for me.”
“The destruction of the livelihoods of millions of Pennsylvanians is no laughing matter and we don’t find this entertaining,” tweeted Jondavid Longo, the mayor of Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania.
Even President Donald Trump’s former acting national intelligence director Richard Grenell got in on the action.
“The Pennsylvania Governor is purposefully hurting the economy to score political points,” Grenell wrote on Twitter. “Voters should take note.”
The hypocrisy of liberals never ceases to amaze.
