During an interview on Fox News Channel’s ‘America’s Newsroom’ on Wednesday that took place before the suspect was captured in the NYC subway attack, NYC Mayor Eric Adams (D) , dodged why some New York kids have to wear masks at school when he didn’t wear a mask at an event in DC saying he was focused on catching the suspect in the subway attack . Adams was ready to discuss the symptoms he was experiencing with his current case of coronavirus
Co-host Bill Hemmer asked, [relevant exchange begins around 12:10] “You weren’t wearing a mask at that superspreader event last week in Washington, D.C. Yet there are children in New York, as young as two years old, required to wear a mask. How does this policy make sense? »
Adams replied, “I know it’s tempting to engage in a COVID conversation, but right now I’m focused on catching a dangerous person. …I can’t wait to come back and lay out all of our COVID plans for the future.
Hemmer then interrupted to ask, “Philly just went back to requiring indoor masks. Does it come back to New York, do you think?
Adams said: “Again, like I said, what am I focusing on today? My objective today is to catch a person who tried to kill New Yorkers. And we can always come back and start a conversation about COVID. My immediate threat is the shooter I need to apprehend.
Earlier in the interview, [relevant exchange begins around 3:50] Adams answered a question about how he was feeling and what symptoms of coronavirus he had.
