Rashida Tlaib, a Democrat from Michigan, was caught on camera admitting that she only wears a mask for the cameras that follow her.

“I’m just wearing it because I’ve got a Republican tracker here,” she explained to a supporter at a Detroit community event on Monday.

“Oh, no, oh, not you!” Tlaib said as she pulled her mask away from her face. “No, no, no—I’m just wearing it because I’ve got a Republican tracker here.”

While studying economics, Brendan found himself comfortably falling down the rabbit hole of restaurant work, ultimately opening a consulting business and working as a private wine buyer. On a whim, he moved to China, and in his first week following a triumphant pub quiz victory, he found himself bleeding on the floor based on his arrogance. The same man who put him there offered him a job lecturing for the University of Wales in various sister universities throughout the Middle Kingdom. While primarily lecturing in descriptive and comparative statistics, Brendan simultaneously earned an Msc in Banking and International Finance from the University of Wales-Bangor. He's presently doing something he hates, respecting French people. Well, two, his wife and her mother in the lovely town of Antigua, Guatemala.
