NY Gov. Cuomo Pretends He’s President Launches National COVID-19 Movement With Hollywood

New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo is trying to play president and has joined Hollywood to launch a national campaign to push people into wearing facemasks.

The campaign is called “Mask Up America,” it features actors Morgan Freeman and Robert De Niro and comprises of eight videos. Two of the eight videos were released last week and were directed by Oscar-winning Katheryn Bigelow, the videos include celebrities Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Jamie Foxx, Jeffrey Wright, and others preaching the importance of wearing a mask.

“I may never have met you. We don’t go way back. Maybe we wouldn’t even be friends if we did. But when you wear a mask, you have my respect,” Freeman says in one of the videos. “Because your mask doesn’t protect you, it protects me. And I wear my mask to protect you.” The ads will air during donated media time not just in New York, but across the country.

In a statement announcing the campaign Cuomo said:

“New Yorkers suffered gravely when this pandemic hit our state and as we see other states battle the surge of COVID-19, we want to be sure all Americans know what we know here – that it is essential to wear a mask in order to protect one another.”

But before we go crazy and mask shame everyone, John Solomon, at Just The News has released some very important data. Just one month after California enforced a statewide mask mandate cases have increased by 162%.

Governor Gavin Newsom – who also banned singing at church – has mandated that every child over the age of two must wear a mask.

Just The News reports:

The website of Johns Hopkins University, which offers pandemic tracking tools for every U.S. state, says average daily cases in California have increased from 3,385 on the day of Newsom’s order to 8,889 as of July 16, an increase of 162%.

Though Newsom’s mask mandate appears to have had little effect on the trajectory of the virus in California, the governor nevertheless this week imposed additional mask requirements on the state, ordering that most students who return to school in the fall will be subject to “strong mask requirements,” namely that “all staff and students in 3rd grade and above will be required to wear a mask or face covering” during the school day.
