Chris Christie Now Says He Was Wrong For Not Wearing a Mask
Has hell frozen over?
Chris Christie is now admitting he was wrong not to wear a mask at what health professionals are referring to as a COVID-19 super-spreader event at the White House Rose Garden last month.
In a statement to the New York Times, Chris said he should have been more careful when attending the ceremony of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on September 26.
“I believed when I entered the White House grounds, that I had entered a safe zone, due to the testing that I and many others underwent every day,” he said.
“I was wrong,” he admitted. “I was wrong not to wear a mask at the Amy Coney Barrett announcement and I was wrong not to wear a mask at my multiple debate prep sessions with the president and the rest of the team.”
Chris, who was seated in the third row, said he was told that “everybody in the first three rows had been tested that day and tested negative.”
Chris later tested positive and spent a week in the hospital.
“I shouldn’t have relied on that,” he went on. “I hope that my experience shows my fellow citizens that you should follow C.D.C. guidelines in public no matter where you are and wear a mask to protect yourself and others.”
Well, at least he’s coming out now. Who knows how many lives he might save just from this statement alone.
Let this be a lesson to all: Wear your masks!
