QUEENS, NY — Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) was seen blowing bubbles at a child.
It seems the risk of spreading COVID-19 is not as serious as we thought.
According a report by NOQ Report, AOC took off her facemask over the weekend and blew bubbles near the face of a small child, who was still wearing a mask. Her actions went against what the media and Democrats are preaching about the deadly virus. Given their narrative, surely this is seen as recklessly spreading this deadly virus?
In their report titled, “Attempted murder? AOC removes face mask, blows bubbles at defenseless child,” NOQ says:
“They don’t want people to be able to do, well, anything that could allow a single particle to be transferred from one person to another.”

So which is it? Is COVID-19 a virus that is deadly and easily transmitted through many means, so that all health and safety precautions need to be adhered to?
Or are we safe to throw our masks to the wind, along with the bubbles we blow?
The photo does show the little girl still wearing her mask, and several feet from AOC. The bubbles weren’t blown directly into the girl’s face, either. However, you can’t control the wind, and you can’t control the airborne particles when the bubbles pop.
This seems like a dangerous game you’re playing, AOC.
Other media outlets are also calling AOC’s public display a hypocrisy. America’s Voice on YouTube reported AOC blowing bubbles on Sunday, ridiculing her actions.
.@AOC: The coronavirus is deadly you guys!

Despite the cries of how dangerous and deadly this virus is, the real numbers show that for every 10,000 cases of COVID-19 only eight people die when you are looking at people under the age of 45.
For the age group 34 years old and younger, only about three people die out of 10,000 cases of COVID-19.
NOQ Report said:
“The damage as a result of the lockdowns is exponentially greater than the risk to the majority of American who are under the age of 50.”
The state of Florida has had 82,397 people 34 & under test positive for the coronavirus. Of that number, 28 have died. That’s a coronavirus death rate of .00034. They’ve had 144,210 54 and under test positive. That’s a .0016 death rate.

The numbers provided were from the research Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and his team have collected.
The NOQ Report said:
“To the White House, President Trump, and anyone else who will listen: Put out numbers like Ron DeSantis has in Florida. The numbers speak for themselves about the coronavirus. Let the truth bring sanity back to America.”
The media and the far-left are trying to convince people that lockdowns are necessary. They want to ruin our economy, send people to poverty, and into being dependent upon the government.
Meanwhile, AOC blows corona-bubbles into children’s faces.

Here’s more on AOC brought to you by Law Enforcement Today.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany ripped Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) on Wednesday after the firebrand leftist congresswoman said a drastic $1 billion cut to the NYPD budget was not enough.
In a statement, AOC, the democrat representative for New York’s 14th congressional district, said the cuts were a “disingenuous illusion” and called for further defunding as the City experiences a surge in gun shootings and violence.

They keep underestimating her, and it’s going to cost them.

AOC went on to say:
“This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues–defunding the police means defunding the police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools.”

Based on AOC’s bold statements about the recent budget cuts to the NYPD budget, McEnany told reporters at Wednesday’s White House briefing:
“It’s unacceptable when you have people like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez really suggesting where the Democratic Party stands today because taking a billion [dollars] away from the NYPD officers wasn’t enough for her–she wants to take it all away.
“She doesn’t want police officers and that’s a really unacceptable proposition.”
McEnany also told reporters during the briefing that President Trump stands firmly behind the city’s finest and noted a recent HuffPost/You-Gov survey which found most Americans did not support the movement to defund police departments:
“We’re at a place where 64 percent of the nation are concerned that the growing criticism of America’s police will lead to a shortage of police officers that will harm all Americans. It’s an untenable principle.”
For New York, slashing the NYPD budget by $1 billion was not an easy decision, but the substantial cuts to the NYPD came in response to demonstration seeking to defund the department in the wake of George Flyod’s death at the hands of police in Minneapolis.
Council Speaker Corey Johnson said following the vote:
“Heart-wrenching, impossible choices had to be made. It was not easy–today is not a day of celebration, we are not in a time of celebration, it is the time of necessity and today’s budget agreement is one of necessity.”
The effects of the budget cut will include, in part, reducing overtime by $352 million and trimming the size of the police force by 1,163 cops, which Mayor Bill de Blasio insisted would not decrease public safety despite the recent surge in shootings and gun violence that is sweeping through their city.
Remember when the media tried to tell you that "defunding the police" didn't actually mean "defunding" the police?

Johnson said he was ultimately “disappointed” with the budget, saying he wanted deeper cuts to the NYPD and a larger reduction of its force, but the mayor would not budge on those items.
Mayor de Blasio said:
“It won’t be easy. We’re asking a lot of the NYPD, but the NYPD is up to the mission. I don’t have a doubt in my mind–they will find a way to be more effective and efficient, they have for years and they will keep us safe.”
Once the budget was voted on and approved, AOC fired at the Mayor saying he used “budget tricks” and “funny math” to make it look like he had defunded the city’s police department.
In a tweet, she accused Big Apple officials of achieving the cuts with a:
“Budgetary sleight of hand: moving school safety officers under the Department of Education.”
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 1, 2020
Mayor de Blasio responded back saying:
“Well, she’s just wrong–the facts are we took money from the NYPD, put it into youth programs. We are reducing the size of the NYPD, but still in a way that can keep us safe.”
“It does not mean counting cuts in overtime as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways. The fight to defund policing continues.”
In an interview with Fox Business Network earlier Wednesday, the Queens-born President Trump described the cuts to the NYPD as “very sad” and lashed at de Blasio without referring to him by name:
“I’m a big fan of New York’s Finest. We call them New York’s Finest, the policeman, and what he’s done to that incredible group of men and women is very sad. It’s very sad.”
