We reported last week about the media-driven “ controversy ” surrounding the fact that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) attended funeral services Friday at the Washington National Cathedral for the late Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) without wearing a mask.
To quickly recap, reporter Kait Walsh, who works for WPRI 12 in Rhode Island, was watching the event via a live feed and made sure to point out Cruz’s maskless status in a tweet report.
“Interesting to see who is in attendance at Bob Dole’s funeral,” she wrote. “Among those I spotted, Labor Sec Marty Walsh and NBC’s Savannah Guthrie who is sitting next to Tom Hanks. Oh, and Ted Cruz…not wearing a mask.”
