COVID has given left-leaning public officials a green light to implement asinine rules, where those setting policy imagine that they alone know what’s best for the public.
Government regulations often turn into contradictory nonsense as local laws can clash with state and federal laws, leading to confusion and frustration.
Now even a far-left TV host slammed one blue city’s COVID rules because they’re just that crazy.
With far-left Mayor Eric Adams at the helm, the New York City vaccine mandate standards say that people are allowed to attend indoor events without requiring proof of vaccination, but proof of vaccination for employees who go to work is required, even when we are talking about the same indoor events.
If that sounds crazy, that’s because it is.
Trevor Noah, the radical left-wing host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, never met a leftist cause he didn’t enthusiastically support, but these conflicting coronavirus vaccine mandate standards are too much even for him and he pointed out the insanity on his show.
On a recent segment of the show, Noah mocked how the standards clashed at an NBA game between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets.
At the game, Nets star Kyrie Irving was only allowed to attend as a fan, not as a player or employee, because of his decision to remain unvaccinated.
It's really interesting to see Trevor Noah make a turn for the based. I hope he keeps it up. pic.twitter.com/QgA7Kf332M

Noah said, “Restrictions are being lifted so quickly, that things are getting a little confusing, you know. Like for example, OK, right here in New York City, Mayor Eric Adams has lifted the rule that you have to be vaccinated to attend indoor events. OK, that is gone. But there is still a rule that you have to be vaccinated to go to your workplace. So if someone’s job is at an indoor event, they can’t go to work. But they can show up to work to watch their colleagues do their thing. Yeah. Which is exactly what happened this weekend. Yeah, guys, I don’t care like how COVID compliant you are, s**t like this makes zero sense. Can we agree on that?”
He continued, further driving home the senselessness of the rules in place, saying, “Kyrie can’t play, but he can sit in the stands, right, like a fan. And, then, as a fan, what happens if he gets picked to take the half-court shot to win the car? Can he do that? What are those rules, how does it work?”
Democrats have pulled back on COVID restrictions, claiming that the science has changed, but really what’s happening is that more and more people are seeing how ridiculously some government officials have overplayed their hand, citing “public safety” as an excuse.
Now, some of these same Democrats are running scared.
Unfortunately, for those living in deep blue locations like New York City, there are some public officials who just don’t want to admit that it’s time to move on.
When the COVID tyrants lose a card-carrying leftist like Noah, maybe some rethinking is in order.
