Pennsylvania state rep. Wendy Ullman on Tuesday was caught on video appearing to call coronavirus face masks “political theater” during an exchange with Gov. Tom Wolf.
Ullman, a Democrat from Bucks County, made the remarks while chatting with Wolf before a live-streamed press conference in Doylestown Borough.
“Wendy, I’m going to, I’m going to take my mask off before I speak,” Wolf can be heard telling Ullman
“I will as well. I’m waiting so we can do a little political theater,” Ullman responds laughing before returning to the podium.
The clip was quickly seized upon by Republicans who accused Democrats of hypocrisy. The Young Republican National Federation shared the clip Tuesday night and it was retweeted by Eric Trump.
I hope every person in Pennsylvania sees this video! The Governor is killing your states economy for “political theater.” https://t.co/u5srZrmPYK
