Politicians and corona masks – apparently a difficult topic. After the first scandal surrounding Robert Habeck and Olaf Scholz in the government plane, things are now getting violent Markus Soder (55) and Ricardo Lang (28) discussed.
Mask trouble four weeks ago
A little recap of the first act, end of August:
main actor: Chancellor Olaf Scholz (64/SPD) and Economics Minister Robert Habeck (53/Greens)
location: Interior government aircraft
Plot: Habeck and Scholz have lively conversations with journalists on board the government aircraft, but do not wear a mask – while normal citizens are still required to wear a mask on scheduled flights. Huge excitement! In Germany, a debate broke out about alleged double standards in politics, although the accused countered with negative PCR tests.
The result: masks are no longer compulsory on airplanes. But that shouldn’t be the only mask excitement.
Ricarda Lang and Markus Söder without a mask at the Oktoberfest
Apparently the sequel will follow at Oktoberfest 2022. This time:
main actor: The Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder and the Green party leader Ricarda Lang
location: Oktoberfest marquee
Plot: On the one hand, you can see the self-proclaimed “team leader of the caution team” during the pandemic, Markus Söder, and on the other hand the party leader of the Greens, Ricarda Lang. Both celebrate exuberantly. They toast their companions. laugh happily. Even if they don’t celebrate together, they have one thing in common: Both don’t wear a mask!
The piquant thing is that Ricarda Lang only called for people to continue wearing the mask about a week ago. “Of course, the virus is not interested in whether it spreads among people on the bus, train or plane. Wherever people come together, especially indoors, there is still a high risk of infection. That’s why it’s right to wear a mask there and protect yourself and others,” Lang said on September 9 with a post on “Membership Watch”.
Not only Markus Söder and Ricarda Lang celebrated without a mask
Her party friend, the Green Party leader in Bavaria, Katharina Schulze (37) was also cheerful, without a mask, celebrating.
At the end of March 2022, Schulze even wrote on Twitter: “What annoys me about the ‘then wear a mask’ talk: Yes, Hans-Peter, I’ll do that anyway. But there are people who can’t do that (e.g. babies and small children ). And: vulnerable adults are better protected if everyone wears a mask. Maybe show solidarity?

Even when Bavaria relaxed the corona rules in spring and the mask requirement was largely eliminated, Schulze was against it. She spoke out in favor of “solidarity” wearing a mask.
The question arises: will there be a third part in the mask crime thriller and if so, when will it appear? (jfo)
