Teacher Union Head Randi Weingarten Blasted for Socializing at Conference Without a Mask

Teacher Union Head Randi Weingarten Blasted for Socializing at Conference Without a Mask

“We took them off as people were having a hard time hearing us”

People are absolutely sick of public figures advocating for required masks and then getting caught without one. It seems to happen almost every week.

FOX News reports:

Teachers union head Randi Weingarten removes mask at conference, claims people had a ‘hard time hearing’

American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten, who has called for “universal masking” in schools, is facing criticism after she removed her mask at the 2021 SOMOS conference in Puerto Rico because those in attendance were “having a hard time hearing” what she had to say.

In response to a tweet from Adriana Aviles, a concerned parent who shared photos of the teacher’s union president sitting maskless on a panel with other guests at the conference, Weingarten attempted to defend her action, writing: “You could not be [at] #Somos or the hotel or panel [without] proof of vaccination. I had also just done a rapid Covid test & was negative.”

Weingarten concluded that Aviles was “right” in calling out her hypocrisy and apologized for her decision.

“I think you are right,” Weingarten wrote. “If kids are wearing masks in schools to protect themselves & others educators must wear masks inside as well. I’m sorry.”

“It is why I said you were right.” But that doesn’t mean I’m going to change anything.
I “take responsibility,” like Janet Reno did for 28 murdered children in Waco. Then I move on.
