First let us say we are confused as to why 81 years old congresswoman Maxine Waters was wearing a mask from home as she spoke by video in an interview with TMZ. Does Waters think COVID-19 can come through the computer and infect her? We don’t know if Waters was trying to set an example in convincing everyone to wear a mask. But, to seemingly suggest to people that they should wear a mask even while at home is surprising.
Waters displayed the importance of always wearing a face mask in the battle against COVID-19, but she made more than several mistakes. She frequently touched the mask. Imagine the amount of contamination to the mask if the hands were contaminated. It’s the prime example of Waters repeated touching of the mask with her hands why Dr Anthony Fauci is against civilians wearing mask.Times are changing, not just with the ongoing case with COVID-19, but also in the increasing deaths of African Americans by police officers.
Maxine Waters places spoke on the incident of George Floyd, the black man that died from officer Derek Chauvin applying pressure to his neck with his knee. Despite Floyd informing officer Derek Chauvin he couldn’t breath-Chauvin kept pressure on Floyd’s neck which ultimately killed him. Waters who is holding Trump responsible for the tense climate we now live in with racial heightened racial divide had this to say on Floyd’s killing:
“I’m reflecting on all of the killings of young black men in particular, but of course black women too, at the hands of the police and at the hands of these white supremacists.”
“And I’m thinking about the way that the president conducts himself — in a way he’s dog-whistling — and I think that they’re feeling that they can get away with this kind of treatment.”
Officers were responding to a call claiming Floyd was using fake money to purchase goods at a store. Officer Chauvin who applied pressure to Floyd’s neck was fired. Three of Chauvin’s colleagues who stood and watch him apply pressure to Floyd’s neck with no let up were also fired from the police Minneapolis force.
Protesters continue to mount and creat chaos to the point where Trump has offered to send in the military cool things down.
